Happy Mother's Day!

Good morning to all, and Happy Mother's Day to all the moms! I hope that you are able to take some time off and enjoy family this very special day. We have had a nice mother's day here at Mbingo. Chuck and I were able to get up early and take care of the kids to let Lindsay and Angela sleep in; and we made omelets and mango/pineapple pancakes for a celebratory breakfast. It was a feast!

Lindsay and Angela, along with their friend, Jamie, made cookies for the missionary moms here at Mbingo and distributed them door-to-door this afternoon to celebrate mother's day in the absence of their children. Jamie came up with the idea, and it was a wonderful surprise and a heartwarming gift for the moms.

Angela, Kaye, Lindsay, Jamie:
Kaye is a physician from Australia, here with her husband, Keith, who is an anesthesiologist. 
Jamie is a physical therapist who has been here at Mbingo for the past 2 years. 

We also took the opportunity to get Cathen dressed up in some of her new 9-mo clothes for an impromptu photo shoot!
