Easing Out of South Asia... For Now

We have had a CRAZY few months here in South Asia, 


Getting our apartment packed up, 

Getting all of our activity here to a stopping--or at least holding--point in preparation for us heading back to the USA for a few months, 

Has been trying at times. 

But we have kept our sanity. 

We were certainly helped by a 'business' trip to the beaches of Thailand,


Walks in the forests of India,



Visits with old friends,


Accomplishing our language goals,


And taking plenty of selfies!


Stress?!


We are having too much fun to have stress.


See you on the other side...

We Have a Live One Here: Reed's First Walk

She will likely hold it over his head forever,

Because Rebekah took her first steps just 5 days after her first birthday.

He has been able to take 3 or 4 steps for a while now, 

But on our vacation in a big, carpeted hotel room,

Reed decided to get moving at just over 13 months.


Born in Delhi, First Steps in Thailand...

Who knows where the rest of his "firsts" will be?

And we all celebrated by accompanying James to get his beard shaved!

Which he hadn't done since Reed's birth!


Everyone's a Winner!
