We got a special delivery today at the office! Here she is, a little ball of energy to keep us moving the next few days. It's going to be like camping out at the office,with so much work to do. Mommy is here, and therefore so is Madison. But that doesn't mean she won't be having a little fun!
Yes, we've got free two-wheeler rides today - and as you can see, Madison is having a good time. Today the booklets arrived for our newest series. The guy you see above delivers them once a month, and a few times in the past Madison has been here to greet him. It's now just about mandatory that she gets a ride up and down the office on the hand cart. She just sort of wanders over when the cart is empty, and stands there, expecting a ride. Our delivery guy always gives her a ride on the cart, no matter what.
This week is somewhat of a write-off with Madison, unfortunately. Although she's getting a crash-course in what it's like to be the child of a ministry worker. We put in some really long hours sometimes - its a good thing we've got a Kindle and Leapster Explorer for Madison. Although she doesn't even need those most of the time: the other workers and volunteers here always show Madison a great time.
Meanwhile, at home, our new pets are busy setting up shop. Take a look at how much they'v been digging it the last twenty hours or so:
Madison was checking out the ant farm as much as we've been lately. It's somewhat hypnotic!
Our other pets are doing well - the caterpillars are already starting to "hang around," which means we'll be putting them into the tent soon enough. And then, the sea monkeys are getting bigger. We can spot at least three swimming around in there so far, so all is well with our new pets!
Madison continues to read her books and do homework exercises on the computer. Her school actually keeps track over the summer of what she does online, which is great. It will also keep track of her library reading, once we start to input all the books. Daddy hit a snag when registering her though - when there's time, he'll fix that up and get her started officially. Despite the status, she's actually read a whole lot of books from the library. Yay, Madison!
Only a few more days to go, and still so much left to do. There will be some late nights here... and in just one week, it'll all be over with. Mommy and Daddy will be exhausted. So will Madison, but in a different way. I think she's going to have a spectacular week!
