Friday evening, we went into Waxhaw to have a special dinner–ice cream! We were celebrating the completion of a week of changes, shifts, new schedules, new living arrangements and pretty much everything else. Everyone had a couple scoops of their favorite flavor from the Waxhaw Creamery, and it was pretty yummy.
After the end-of-week celebration, we made our way back to the apartment, where Dale put the kids to bed while Miranda met a fellow Wycliffe friend from a nearby city for dinner and quality hang-out time. After I put the boys to bed, Phoenix and I played a few rounds of Uno. She won all three games. I went to check on the twins, and they were NOT asleep.
When I walked into the room, I saw they had turned on the lamp and were “reading” a Curious George book. They hadn’t gotten out of bed, but were not going to sleep. I started to reach for the lamp, but Beast asked me to let them finish reading. I couldn’t resist.
Today I went on a men’s outing with the group, to a go-kart racing/putt-putt place in Charlotte. It was fun, but not too many photos from the driver’s seat. Tomorrow, we visit a church in Charlotte that serves an French-speaking African community here. This church will be our home-away-from-home for the next month.
