Lot's of people have asked us "How are the kids adjusting to life in the States." The answer is pretty well. They love seeing family and friends, and we've actually been amazed at how much Meredith remembers. But they also miss South Africa, and especially the kids at The Pines.
The other day we had to go to the Apple Store at Jordan Creek Mall. They have a children's play area there and our kids got to spend a few minutes climbing all over and having fun. It was nice for them to get to play with elephants and hippos again, even though these aren't real like the ones in South Africa. Just playing with these animals made them feel right at home though, because I know they really enjoy playing on the elephants and hippos at The Pines.
