|The door to my house was all decorated for my return to Haiti!|

I'm back in Haiti after what seemed like a whirlwind trip to Indiana! I'm always amazed at just how quickly life moves in the States- there is always something to do and someplace to go! The longer I'm gone though, the more I realize what I truly miss is time with my family and friends. Sure, I miss having lots of different foods, my independence, and a Target (oh, how I miss Target!) nearby. But even more so, I miss not being a part of my family and friend's daily lives. I loved that I got to go to my sister-in-law's graduation- so proud of Crystal!! And my sister Mila had prom! It was so fun helping her get ready and watching as her group of friends headed off to a fun weekend of events. I got to spend a lot of time with my nieces which was just what this Aunt loves. I was even in town over grand-persons day at Madison and Caitlin's school which was a lot of fun to attend. I also got to spend an entire week with my youngest niece Ava. My nieces really are the cutest and smartest kids out there! I also got to help my mom plant lots of flowers and her garden. I forgot just how much I used to love working outside in the garden and in my flower beds that I used to have at my house. It was nice being outside when the temperatures weren't unbearable and there was no humidity! The time went too quickly but I was also ready to head back home to my Haitian family.

|Oh how I missed these little faces!|
|Lindsey is a senior nursing student at Purdue. She was a nursing|
intern in the clinic last year too. LOVE having her back in Haiti!!
|Carli is a senior nursing student at IU. If you saw her in the clinic |
and village you would have no idea that this is her first time to Haiti and
her first missions experience. She has already made lots of friends and is learning lots!
|Myself, Katherine, and Leslee. I am blessed to not only|
work with them but to also have them as my friends!
