I am finally finished my course work for the summer, just in time to pull my house together and get the boys ready for back to school. I had totally forgotten what back to school was like in Canada, (not to mention grocery shopping). I think that I will have more fun picking out school supplies and getting the boys ready for school than they will. My biggest problem is that I am so out of touch with life here that it is hard to know what they need. Hopefully when it is all said and done, I will find the time to get a break too!
Aside from getting my papers finished and trying to settle in we have been busy trying to help my sister move. She had a fire in her home last spring and they rented a town house while the repairs were being done in hopes of being able to move back by now, unfortunately the house isn't ready for them (and will probably be a few more months to repair the damage)and the place they are in is spoken for, so they get to move one more time! The move was complicated by her having back problems. Thanks to all of you who have been praying for her back she has been improving significantly over the past couple of weeks and is much more mobile now.
Please remember Sahel Academy (the boys school in Niamey)in your prayers. They started classes this past week with a building that isn't quite finished and they are still waiting on a shipping container with textbooks and other supplies (including the doors for the building).
Praying that you will enjoy your last few weeks of summer with all that it holds!
