This morning Garry went flying with Josh, our new pilot in Palawan. He is just beginning to fly here on the field, and his first step is to get some hours and then have an official checkride with a national check pilot. He's hoping to get the required hours this week as well as getting comfortable in the airplane after a couple of years of not flying. We're also looking forward to some time together as families over the coming week.
Kevin has a big toe injury this week, so he hasn't been playing badminton. The advantage is that he's had more time to do other things, like ride his bike and study hard. It really is amazing how a toe injury can affect you.... one toe hurts, and he spent several days barely able to walk. The toe has a purpose, and when it doesn't do its part it's hard to stay balanced.
I started writing Christmas cards this week. What a great opportunity to remember our friends and relive good memories of times together. I am so grateful for each of you!
