Psalm 32:8 I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
Today is day 2 of David’s antibiotics treatment and I am so relieved that it seems to be working. His hives are still present, but they are not appearing as swollen or red or hot to the touch. I am hopeful that this is a sign of recovery for him.
As for the girls, we seem to be fighting with them (because they are fighting with each other) every night and every morning. It is getting truly exhausting. What is even harder is that there have been a couple of times that when they finally decide to get along and have fun it is when they are supposed to be going to bed. They need to get the rest and they are keeping their brother awake who really needs the rest because he has been so sick.
We had another day of just being around the house and basically trapped in our room because that is the only place there is air conditioning. We worked on preparations for this week of teaching the kids at the schools and our kids at home.
We did have a visit from Jung Jung (Wat’s cousin) who came to say hello and ended up playing with Anjali and Lucia for quite some time. It is really fun to watch them play with Jung Jung as if they had known her forever—they are so comfortable and at peace. It makes my heart so happy that my children are so open and welcoming, and are just as welcoming as people have been with us.
We also found out that we will not be teaching the monks any more this month, but we will begin teaching with them again in November on Thursday and Fridays, and 2 Saturdays before we leave.
