J is an introvert. And living in a culture where there are apparently none can be more than a bit challenging for him. I am trying to give him more time to himself to think and recharge and as long as I am with friends I am happy too! Win:win! So I drafted Paula into joining us at our old stand by: the little zoo here (and this time we did not take along 32 extra kids). We even got to hold a snake this time. Anni and Anna were horrified by it but Evy was intrigued and was even caught squeezing it’s head! I seriously think the kid will wrestle lions in her future. She is that hard core. We rode the camel and horse too and the girls loved every minute. Evy was never afraid and just clapped and then repeatedly asked for “more.” We had a great morning with friends and came home to a rested and recharged Papa! That is a good day!
