Back in the UAE


Picture of us on the flight back.

14 hour flight and two weeks and some change later, we are back home and fully adjusted. We’ve said goodbye to stateside family, friends, and vacation and have reconnected with friends, work, and life as we know it here. Below are a few updates pertaining to each of us.



Aaron has joined us around the table and is now eating 2 meals per day. He has tackled avocado, pears, apples, green beans, and rice cereal, none of which made out the same way they went in. His favorite thus far are pears and green beans.

He has also started school. We originally thought that Poppa B/Brian, the same person that cared for Mila, would care for him. Brian, however, remained stateside temporarily so Aaron now attends House of Colours with Mila. The same woman that cared for Mila when she started at the nursery now cares for Aaron. The staff there tell us that Aaron is an awesome baby that barely cries and sleeps wonderfully.



Mila is taking over the world one country at a time! She is talking non-stop now and proves to be a very bossy child. Her teachers at school and members at our church were excited to see her return. She’s turning 2 soon!

T and Me


We’ve started going back to work. Terrence teaches 5th grade boys and I teach 4th grade girls. Our newest project is trying to find a new place to live as we need a bit more space. We hope to post pictures of our new home soon.
