Sisters' Update

Amelia is almost six years old.  At times she seems grown-up like when she calls us on the phone at Tenwek to ask "Can I play at Anna's house, " or when she Skypes her grandparents by herself.   Amelia has also figured out recently, "Dad I know who Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy are, they are really your parents."  But then I realize she is still a kid as I saw her "walking down to our house calmly carrying a newspaper size slice of windshield glass."  Stop!
Amelia now combs her own hair, picks out her own outfits, and is still working on reading.  She is very fond of living in Africa and inseparable with her MK friends.  
       Meredith is 2.5 years old.  Her favorite things now are blankee, pockets, band-aids and the game Pop Beads.  She loves to wear many different pairs of shoes each day, especially shoes that are not her own.   She has stopped calling Amelia Sister and now say's, Ameeeeia.  She is still a good sleeper and napper in her bed net covered crib.  Meredith follows Amelia most places she goes..and has thankfully ended her biting phase.
Meredith favorite thing of all is still her thumb.

I love hearing about the sisters and what they are up to. I'm so glad they love life in Africa.

They are growing up so fast. Life continues for the two of them in any part of the world as they are so loved at home. I miss you little sweethearts.
Love, Grammie
