|Here is Fred. This is not his best side, but he is photo shy. See|
the picnic table for their "store"?
|While we were walking along this path to visit a member|
we ran into some animal friends.
We actually see and hear different species from the animal (and insect), kingdom all day and night long. We have lizards and ants that insist on living with us no matter how hard we try to get rid of them. We don't actually mind the lizards, but the ants are the bain of my existence here! We are used to hearing the roosters crow, the dogs bark (constantly), and the eerie human baby sound of cats meowing. One cat has taken residence in a box just outside our door. That cat is about to give birth, so we are waiting for the big event. Daily, we also get to see some pretty chickens, ducks and roosters and many other fowls of the air. We understand that when the rain really starts coming, we will see fish swimming in the streets! We'll keep you posted on that.
|How cute is this scene?|
Back to work! Here are some pictures of people we have met along the way. This is just a small fraction of some people we have come across, but I will introduce them to you through the captions.
|All ages LOVE to pose for pictures! Just some cute kids|
that passed us along our way and stopped for a picture.

cooled down a bit!

|Hard at work figuring out budgets, talents and interests!|
|Decisions made! These groups are ready to get started.|
The 3 groups have wonderful facilitators who will encourage
them to reach their goals!
If you have made it all the way to the end of the blog, we have some exciting news that did not happen in the Philippines. It happened in New York City and we are SO happy about it! Our son Jacob FINALLY popped the question and Ashlee said YES! Wedding date to be announced soon! We can't wait to have Ashlee as a part of our family!
|The happy couple!|
