Day: July 17, 2015
Tomorrow begins my 3 day journey back to the creatures in Panama. I have loved my time here and am so grateful for the opportunity. It’s always a good feeling when you know you’re doing something worthwhile and important. Something that matters that you’ll never have regrets about. Just when I thought I couldn’t possibly love my parents any more than I do, I find myself leaving with greater appreciation, deeper love and an even clearer understanding of who they are as individuals. I stand in awe. How could I be so lucky to be their daughter.
This morning I helped my mom make more fondant wedding cake flowers for the upcoming weddings in our family.
The chrysanthemums are my favorite. Time consuming but so fun to form.
This afternoon I picked up Danny’s birthday present, which he is in the dark about and which I have to keep a secret till October when his birthday is. It’s going to drive me CRAZY!
We went up to my nieces home for a bridal shower, and I got to kiss and hold my sweet little great niece. There’s just nothing like a new baby!
Kjira danced and spun around with Josie.
My sister is such a wonderful Ouma (grandma). She is amazing with her grandkids and they love her so much. It was fun to sit with her, loving the little ones.
Tomorrow Aundrea and I will catch shuttles to Pocatello, and then on to Boise, where we will spend the night. We have a really early flight out and will end up in Panama City on Saturday night, then early Sunday morning will catch the early flight to Bocas and finally board the water taxi to take us to Tanda Malaika and our sweet creatures. It’s going to be wonderful to be with them, and to show Aundrea the wonders of Panama.
Danny continues on with his trip. We aren’t sure when he’ll be done, but most likely sometime in the first part of August. I can’t wait for us all to be reunited.
Now… for a good nights sleep. Sweet Dreams everyone.
