Now that school is finished, I've turned my attentions to preparing to go back to Marulaon: making lots of granola, finalizing and printing school schedules, buying the things that village friends requested, etc. Aaron has been really busy with meetings and e-mails trying finalize plans for SITAG's Conference next week.
Aaron has recently been invited to participate in a workshop in Bangkok in September to be mentored in the area of Cultural Anthropology. I am SUPER excited for him to have this opportunity! So, instead of our family staying in Marulaon from mid-August until mid-November, it looks like we will be going to Marulaon for about a month (mid-August 'till mid-September), coming back into Honiara for three weeks while Aaron goes to the workshop in Bangkok, then heading back to Marulaon in early October and staying into December. We're really thankful that Naomi's parents have been so generous and flexible to allow her to join our crazy crew. Please pray for her as she adjusts to living with us.
