He was obviously worn out. After his nap he was still really lethargic so we took him into the doctor. Wouldn’t you know it…while we were in the waiting room he began to perk right up. We think he had a case of food poisoning and after some medicine was back to himself. The next day he woke up with lots of energy and words….I asked Tyson if he was always like this or if he was just making up for yesterday:) Either way we were happy to see our boy back and healthy. We have praised the Lord many times for the way he has protected us here in Peru. Kai has been sick just a few times…I would expect more even living in the states, but here, there are so many things we don’t deal with in the US that I would have imagined we would have dealt with more. I know the Lord has been protecting Kai and I praise him for that!
Last week we had power outages 7 out of 9 days. These were never shorter than 5 hours and were sometimes as long as 12-18 hours. I used to love power outages as a kid…and even an adult in the US. Here, all I can think of is the fact that there will be no fans. It seems like this happens when it is so incredibly hot. There were multiple days that with humidity it was about 110. Either way we made the best of it and praise the Lord, it came on every night by 11pm so we could at least sleep with a fan:) and Kai loved it…candles, flashlights…all fun for a boy of 3. One night we pulled our mattresses into the living room and hung the mosquito net from the ceiling fan (since it wouldn’t be working) and had a family sleep over. Other nights we and sat on the floor (the coolest place to be) and did puzzles. All in all I am happy to say the power had been back on this week and I am so thankful!

Kai is also a fan of almost all forms of transportation and will take every opportunity to jump in the drivers seat:) Here he is on the bus we took. You have to understand buses and even just normal cars are exciting forms of transportation to a boy whose family car is a mototaxi:)
