pleased Jaques (junior), quick to do the honors of dousing her.
There was laughing and anticipation as ice buckets got filled for Serena, Dimon, Katie, Joyce, Chen, Maya, Mikayla, and even a surprise dousing was given back to Jaques as sweet justification.

It is amazing to think that two and a half weeks are almost finished. It feels like we've always known each other, that we've been family for a long time. Not that we have fully arrived in being the best brothers and sisters to each other that we can be. I think we're on the right track though.
Here are some of the highlights from the past week. On Friday night, Ibrahim popped in one of his favorite movies, "Cool Runnings." Our first family movie night with popcorn and lemonade.
On Saturday, five of the gals (Aleyna, Dimon, Joyce, Maya, Serena) had a volleyball workout from 10am - 3pm. They worked hard. They're strong ladies.

(senior) and McKaylah (junior . . . a
girl from the community that we are
always happy to claim our own).
On Sunday, we again piled into the van to head towards the Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Church, less than five miles away. They so graciously welcomed us with a potluck served after the service. It was so generous and kind of them!
