Village Visit, 2012

Filed under: Our Work,Parenting,Pictures — Adam Heine @ 2:13 PM

We spent last weekend in the mountains with Sean and Prang and their family. It was pretty cool to see how much Sean has gotten done since last year. His farm is constantly changing as he learns new tricks and rotates in new crops (and holy COW but organic farming is complicated; maybe Sean can explain it to you sometime).

Sean has made a lot more room in his house (which is good, cuz our families keep getting bigger) and has plans to make it even bigger. There was no pig this year, but somehow Cindy and Prang managed to feed 18 people without a problem (geez, is that how big our families are?).

The boys spent most of their time collecting sticks and rocks and building “fires.” The rest of us did our best to manage the tiny and/or crying ones while playing Five Crowns (which I lost) or Phase 10 (which I lost horribly).

It was Asia’s first time up in the village. I wish I could say she enjoyed it, but poor little Asia is not a fan of new things. She spent most of the weekend in tears, asking to go “outside” (we already were) or “downstairs” (there wasn’t any). Basically, if she knew the words for “Can we go home now?” she’d have been using them.

But boy was she excited when I said we were going home. She’s been nothing but happy since. Hopefully she’ll feel a lot more secure in her surroundings when we go back next year…

  1. I can’t stand phase 10. I’m am always, without question, thoroughly trounced by mere children.
