A promise, a prayer request and a photo

Well I am 100% hectically (is that a word? Probably not!) busy at the moment. I have at least 10 posts in my mind that I NEED to get done, but I just don't have the time. Why? Well tomorrow is the launch of our 1st zero carbon footprint, self sufficient children's home!!!! Yep.......it is out of control round here! My kids are out of school for the rest of the week as the vehicles are being used to transport chairs, sheep, Zulus, a cow, Zulu beer, more Zulus.........and the President's daughters around Durban and the 1000 Hills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So here is my promise.....as of next week I WILL post all the other very exciting things that are going on in my life....I have a few.

My prayer request is.......PLEASE PRAY FOR TOMORROW! For my sanity and that of my husband! I will do a long post on the event but just let me say...when there are so many Zulus involved things can get pretty crazy! Its a culture thing and we are learning VERY fast!!!!! (today we have to kill a cow!!!!!!!)

And below you can see my photo.....my baby Joe eating jelly and ice cream.
