n'ap boule!

well here we are back in our apartment. it seems so crazy that yesterday we were in haiti. i miss it. while i uploaded all our pictures today, i just cried and cried. i know that this trip will not be our last, we both are really looking forward to going again. soon. i can't wait to tell stories and share pictures that will no doubt bring tears to my eyes again. our trip was awe-inspiring. life changing and just incredible. please keep haiti in your prayers, just because the media moves on to something "bigger and better", it doesn't mean that haiti is okay now or that they have enough help. no. no. no. my heart is still in pain, thinking about how long it will take them to recover. it is a war zone down there. war zone. one blessing that they have, is that they are such a beautiful people. so positive and just a joy to be around. as much as i cried, i laughed more. i just love them all so much!!!!!!!!

Britt I am choked up right now from reading that. It was so sincere, I'm glad you had such a wonderful experience. I want to talk to you and see pics.
And I agree that the media will move on, and Haiti will be somewhat forgotten, far before they are healed. We will keep them in our prayers. Love you :)

You guys took awesome photos, from what David said! You're hilarious- your comments about taking photos made me laugh (well, not laugh, but smile. But I don't really like saying, "It made me smile," for some reason).

Didn't find the binks. Oh well. I think I can afford a couple of dollars. :)

Oliver was an angel while you guys were away this weekend. I'm so sorry he was so difficult at your house. I think he was over stimulated with all the stuff going on. Haha. I want to have you guys up for dinner with Sarah and Dave. Sunday or Monday maybe??? Let me know your plans.

I was beyond excited when I saw that you'd updated. I can't wait to hear your stories! You are amazing. I always feel so weird saying stuff like that since I don't REALLY know you, but it's true. YOu inspire me. And not just because of this.

Glad you are back safe and sound :)
