A soon goodbye

Our flight to the states is booked for April 28th...only 5 weeks away...mixed emotions are in the air as we begin to say our "good-byes" and prepare ourselves for the next phase of life. Sawyer knows we are going on another big trip soon but I don't think he fully realizes that the "trip" is a "move", and all that entails. He does know that he wants his toy cars to go on this trip, very-very important! Every day he says, "We are going on a trip tomorrow". Aren't children cute when they don't understand time references?

So what I'm asking you...yep, you, the blog reader, is this...

What else would you like to know about our time here in Macedonia? What questions do you have for us? What kinds of pictures would you like to see? Please take a minute to write a message in the comments section or write me an email letting me know what you'd like to hear about or see and I'll do my best to meet your requests.

Here are some video clips of my friend, Mamude, while she is cooking bread. Mamude is a very dear, sweet friend of mine. She is pregnant with their third child. I will miss her when we move back to the states.

A new food distribution project has been started in Zlokukani, a small Roma settlement here in Skopje, Macedonia. Many of the poorest families in Zlokukani are given food every Friday. The foods include eggs, potatoes, tomatoes, rice, and other items. The pictures show the families waiting in line.

Which is which?

Here are two pictures of Sawyer and two pictures of Olivia, both at 4 months old. Take a guess at which one is which and then check under comments to see if you were right. Then leave a comment letting me know if you were right:)
