Meet and Greet Monday- Making Life a Little Easier

I'm very excited to introduce you to:

Our very own mini-bus!
It has one row of back seats, and lots of cargo room. It's a stick, and so I'm learning to drive stick and learning to drive for the first time in the Dominican Republic. I want to thank my brother for giving me practice on his stick many years ago, as it's made it much easier! The car is pretty forgiving and easy to shift. However, it's an adventure learning while driving up and down steep hills, over unpaved roads, all the while looking for motorcycles that try to go around you while you're turning.

Also exciting: our new washer!
Ok, it's not "new" but it's new to us. We can now wash diapers without the long tedious process of our old washer. It's absolutely amazing how much time this has saved us!

Look- lots of room for diapers!

On Saturday we transplanted some herbs while Jeremiah decided to play in the dirt:
(notice the very dirty diaper cover)
Apparently he enjoyed the dirt

And here are my happy boys:
