A GREAT Weekend

Ok so Friday night we went out with friends to the Queen of Sheba to celebrate finally starting the adoption. It was so good! The sambusa was awesome and the doro wott was pretty tasty too. We got another chicken dish that was better than the doro wott but I can't remember what it was called. Really only the word doro wott seems to stick in my head:) The "skin" or injera did kind of remind me of skin but I was more weirded out by its color and the fact that it really looks like a dirty kitchen sponge. BUT if I didn't look at it, I really enjoyed it. Also Jackson and his friend crawled all around the restaurant causing all kinds of havoc so it was a great time for all:)

Then on Saturday we dealt with some home remodeling issues and went to an African Unity Festival soccer championship game. It was pretty fun although Ethiopia had lost a few weeks ago so they were not in the game. It was Liberia vs. Sierra Leone and we only stayed until half time so I can't report to you who won. Someone was VERY tired. But one cute little boy walked past us and said, "There are white people here!" in the funniest bewildered way.

Then Sunday our now great friend, Russ Weir, joined us for church and lunch. Although we were zombies from only having a few hours of sleep the night before it was great to talk about RLC and what we can do to help. We are very excited to team up with the Bottomly's for Launch Ethiopia as well.

So yeah it was a African Adoption weekend here and we are looking forward to possibly mailing off the application tomorrow if I can get the pictures printed!
