She's a Wrapper
A true TCK (Third Culture Kid) moment....wrapping homemade lumpia with my daughter, in our kitchen in Japan, while Michael manned the fry pan.....Arielle was THE star WRAPPER.....
I could not BELIEVE we were out of rice....neighbors to the rescue...and the kids really like WHITE rice much better than our typical brown rice.
At MOPS today Melissa shared her international adoption story. It was precious to watch the videos of the two "Gotya" days. Of course, this calls to mind the dream Michael and I have long had of running a Christian Children's home...Arielle helped with the little Moppettes and reports that babies are exhausting...::snort::
We had lunch with Michael, ran to the commissary, and then Arielle visited with friends while I began chopping, chopping, chopping for our vegetable lumpia...and ginormous cheese rolls for the younger set. ::grin::
The kids are cleaning up and then we'll settle in for a devotional, a time of sharing (one praise, one thought, one prayer request), and at LEAST one chapter of Aman's Adventures.
Ah, the perfect ending to a busy day.....and the week is almost over.
Living all of life before the face of God...
