So in two days our family will have lived in Haiti for 6 months.
Friday we head back to the states for nearly three weeks. I am starting to get excited. Mostly about the food. The people a little. The food... A LOT. (Just kidding. Kind of.)
Living here in this crazy-different culture, I wonder how my kids will handle the culture shock of heading back to the US. Nia is 6-- so she's lived a relatively small percentage of her life (1/10th) here in Haiti. Nico-- well, he's actually lived the majority of his life in Haiti, but his situation is a whole other story for another day. But Josiah. He's only 2. So he's lived 1/4th of his life in Haiti. That's insane.
If today is any indication, if nothing else, my kids are going to be cold in the states. This afternoon Nia put on a little light jacket because she was a little chilly. It was 86 degrees.
