Yes, we're alive and the 'Rents are here!
My parents arrived yesterday just in time for the rain! We spent the afternoon in the city hoping to get Eliot's passport. We're still waiting for his new birth certificate, so please pray that it happens soon!!
Today I got to show my parents around Antigua a little bit. During our mini-tour we got to be in a 6.8 earthquake. Apparently it was all over the news in the states that it was big and scary but it wasn't that big of a deal. No buildings fell down, no people died, and the phone lines are still intact. My parent's thought a large truck must have driven by! Sorry to disappoint but it was really that lame. There must not have been that much going on in the news elsewhere. Also, keep in mind this is my 9th earthquake since I've been here, three of them being over 6.2.
Eliot's new name is Spazzy McGee as he is completely showing off for his abuelos (grandparents). He's loving them to pieces and I love to see them interact! My dad already taught Eliot how to catch a ball with his feet to stop it like a good little soccer player even while giggling...
I'm blessed to have them here. I'm so very excited that they get to meet Eliot before we come home. So excited that they get to meet him in his native country and so excited that they get to see where I've lived for the last 7 months!
