We've definitely settled into a routine here at the team house. In the morning we go to one of the orphanages or have an activity (shopping at the glass factory, visiting the open air market, or cleaning around the house) and then in the afternoons there is usually another trip out to an orphanage and the baby hospital.

I love that moment when things seem to calm down a little bit. Everyone has their shower and sleep schedule worked out. We know who likes to visit which orphanage and make room for them to go there daily. We've found a special kid to bond to. We stay up late to talk and play games and get up early to journal. Everyone has found a little niche to fill for the time being.

In a few days we'll be heading home but, for now, I'm enjoying the stability of routine. Tomorrow a large portion of our group will head out so the feel of the house will change a little yet again but I'm looking forward to a few days of having a smaller group and being a little more free with our time.

Not too much else to report at the moment. There has been lots of kid time. I played soccer and Twister and have colored pictures. I've swung kids around like a swing set, danced like an idiot, and just sat and been close to someone for awhile.

I'll leave you with some scenes from a typical day.

The simple joy of play-doh and hanging out in a box.

Some people make their own fashion statements.

Making crafts to help understand God's love for us.

For some reason our backs are always hurting...

Twister time!

Coloring and concentrating.
