Well we are still here, waiting for a visa.  We hope to be traveling before the end of the month, but we aren't really in charge of anything at this point, so we don't know for sure.

In the mean time, we are having a bit of a summer vacation in February.  Daniel already started leave and is home, which the girls are just loving.  We are mostly living out of our suitcases, and I have time to thoughtfully pack, store, and get rid of stuff.  We are only bringing 4 suitcases with us, and I'm being very choosy about what stays behind in storage.  Things don't store easily here, between heat, bugs, and moisture.  My brother-in-law will be staying in our house, so our furniture can stay here, and everything else has been winnowed down to a couple dozen tupperware boxes.  I'm looking forward to not being tied down by stuff!

Miss M and Lu like nothing better than being outside, especially if they can help their daddy with chores.  Their daddy is looking forward to the day that he can send them out to do chores on their own....

The girls are growing and changing moment by moment.  Ms M has already outgrown the next up size in shoes that I had planned to take with us.  She's speaking in full sentences, and likes to bust out with random reminders in quiet moments, like "We don't eat soap!"  Truth.  Lu is a perpetual motion machine, and is in trouble the moment my back is turned.  Her favored method currently is dragging a chair over to reach anything out-of-bounds up high-- door latches, the top shelves of the bookcase, the back of the counter.  She is impervious to any method of discipline, which does not bode well for our future.  Both girls are able to count to 10 in English and Spanish, which sounds impressive but actually is because I count at them all the time ("I'll give you to the count of 3 to come over here!!!" ) so mostly reflects on their naughtiness :)  For two-year-olds they are pretty mellow though.  We aren't struggling with temper tantrums, knock on wood.  Crossed fingers for our upcoming looooong flights!
