update on life

I know when I get home I'm going to regret not blogging more during my last couple months in Grenada.
So here's a little update!

Lee just finished his second set of exams - 2/3 finished with 5th term now!! And completely finished with CPD for life! and he is relieved.
We got the list of available hospitals for the spring.... Detroit is still our #1 option and we have no earthly idea about #2 and #3...  pray we get Detroit!!

We're still both busy all the time. go go go.  I'm looking forward to Christmas and being home relaxing a bit before the craziness begins again in January with Lee back to studying for the USMLE and me working! ah!

Limes is going fantastic!  I am so happy.  The kids have been behaving, the volunteers have been faithful, and the rain has held out for the most part.
I have a couple of posts to back up and do about Limes so I'll do that soon.

We're still visiting QE every Monday.  They got two new little boys that have been quite the handful.  It is so sad to see that they way these kids are behaving is a direct correlation to the environment they were in before they were put in QEH.  People are disgusting. basically.  The things these sweet little children have seen, heard, and been subjected to makes me want to vomit.
Pray for their adjustment and for the staff and counselors at QE and the sweet little ones C. & J.

This week I helped the girls from Bel Air home learn a song and dance to perform at the ICSA talent show last night!! They sang Katy Perry - Firework!  They did sooooo good!!  It was a near disaster when they arrived and I saw that two of the best, loudest singers weren't there!  They didn't do their chores and weren't allowed to come :/  but the other girls stepped it up and they sang their hearts out.  It was so fun!! I made ribbon streamers and we have sparklers lit at the end and the crowd loved it :)  I can't wait to get the video!  I'll post it soon.

Other than that I've been working on growing my sea glass collection, visiting the beach, baby sitting, collecting donations for REACH Grenada, and doing some little crafts here and there.... oh and PURGING this household of stuff so I can pack it all home. yikes.  its going to be a chore.

The ICSA show performance was SO good! I cried. What a goofball I am. Don't leave Miss Grenada, what are we going to do without you?
