Two Days Left

It’s hard for me to believe that we only have today and tomorrow in Potosi before our three day journey home.

And Caleb turned six months today.

I honestly don’t even know where to begin writing and that is probably why I haven’t posted recently. We only just reached the point in the last few days where we felt confident navigating the city and shopping in the market. The weekend was spent in Uyuni visiting the largest salt flat in the world and now we are jamming our last “to dos” into our remaining days.

This is the kind of place that I can attempt to describe, but you have to experience it to understand it. It’s an incredibly frustrating and exhausting city, but the people are so kind and generous. We think Caleb may come back to run for mayor one day since he has made friends with just about everyone!

Keith has been working hard at the clinic as well as helping out with health screenings for Compassion International children. I have been meeting with my Spanish-tutor-turned-friend Eunice, taking photos to document Steve & Mary’s life here, and caring for the Little Monkey. Parenting here has probably been the biggest challenge since our days are very different from back home. I am so thankful for how flexible he has been; what a trooper!

We have made some wonderful friends here, but it is time to go home. Living out of suitcases gets old quickly and we are anxious to see our Las Vegas friends since we only have two months left with them.

Here are a few photos of our friends:

Eunice, my Spanish tutor, has become a wonderful friend and Caleb absolutely adores her.


She taught him to give besos (kisses)!
