Yes, we are HOME in Palawan! It is amazing to be in our own house and sleep in our own beds! The girl who stayed here had the house clean, so it was a very nice home-coming. Since then things have been slightly crazy... the electric meter blew up and it took 2 full days to have it replaced, we were able to get some electricity from elsewhere so the house was a mess of wires, the boys have been working on school as we got their books unpacked, we had scheduled brown-out two nights (which didn't make that much difference cause we didn't have power anyway!), my helper disappeared (though she says she'll be back this week), and we're making plans for Garry to go back to Manila on Wednesday for more meetings!

Right now Garry and Kevin are in town picking up a few things and I'm trying to create some order from the chaos in my office. It's amazing how many papers I brought home that need attention! Kaleb is busy working on a model balsa wood airplane and trying to figure out how to make a jet engine in between. Kevin has been helping here and there and finishing up his book.

This evening there's a fun games at the closest badminton court and we're looking forward to seeing our friends there! All in all, it's good to be home and we look forward to getting settled into a more normal routine soon!
