South African Time

After a whirlwind of a week, I finally have internet at my new flat (long story) and can calm the many people who are worried sick. Which, by the way, just totally blows me away, that people are emailing and freaking out because I haven't blogged in so long. I'm fine. The first week at Ikhaya was hard and amazing, at the same time. The children are some of the most amazing kids I have ever worked with. All have distinct personalities, well except the 4 week old of course, and they are bright shining lights in my life. I have had the last two days off and I miss them terribly. Anyhoo, it was very hard to be organized here, at least during my first week, because the outlets are different, the time change, the internet issue, etc etc. But now that I'm settled into my new flat (as they say), I have all things squared away and can now update you with pictures and stories. But mainly, I want to reassure people, that the instant I got to this country I just knew that this was what I was supposed to be doing.

Blogs to Come = My day of "teaching" and the inspiring faces of Sapphire Elementary Grade 7 in Port Elizabeth and some adventures with Lions.
