|We live in the clouds|
Several weeks ago, everyone but me (I can't afford to get sick, ever) got typhoid fever. It was rough but not as bad as I had imagined typhoid would be. It was something I meant to have us all get vaccinations for but was never able to get to the health department before we left. I've heard stories of people getting really, really sick and being in the hospital for weeks and sometimes dying so I would say that it was on my list of greatest fears. Thankfully, God is merciful because I didn't know what the boys had until the worst was over and they were on the right medication. Had I known, I would have been in full panic mode. It made me very thankful that we don't live out in a jungle somewhere where there are worse things to get!

We've had a couple of visitors recently. We love when people come, it really lifts our spirits and gives us lots of encouragement. Plus it gives us a break from life here and lets us be and do "normal". This is a shameful plug for guests but who needs Disney or North Carolina when you can come to Guatemala? If you come here, we promise you will have the experience of a lifetime and pictures to prove it! Not only that, but you get to hang out with the crazy Steed boys - never a dull moment. :)
