I plan to continue this approach. However, I neglected to remember that a large number of my pictures focus on one very specific subject: the hilarious bundle of four-year-old energy known as Theo.
Obviously, this must be remedied. Brace yourself. (Some select captions feature Theo himself.)
Back in December, Theo broke his arm. He had been jumping off of a pickup in one of his typically daring maneuvers, except this time it went a little too far. He ended up having surgery and was shackled with an unwieldy cast. (Theo didn't care for the cast too much, so one of his perpetual vices was to mess with it; one time he took it completely off while his mama was sleeping.)
Despite this, the little turkey was still hyperactive. For instance, we brought him back a foam sword, which he has used to great delight. (“Theo In Pictures” is a man after my own heart.)
|Theo: "You and me, we had swords! In the grass!"|
|(Note the bananas; we planted this tree last year, and it's getting close to producing!)|
So maybe it wasn't the best idea. We decided it would be better to wait for a full-on swimming spree till he had his cast off.
|"That me! And chicklet." (On his way to get his cast off.)|
|"That me-o!" (FREEDOM! Also, Brantlys, you'll be happy to learn that Stephen's ACU shirt is going to good use.)|
|"I splash the water - I make the water to go in Alice eye! And mama looking like monster. See, mama? You look like monster."|
|Theo and Rebecca Epp, a friend of ours and a doctor who works at ELWA|
What can I say? Theo is the same Theo. Based on the antics he's had thus far, he's sure to feature in my later posts as well.
Catch you later...my man. *cool bike riding face*
|"That me-o! On my bike."|
About this series of posts:“Life at the Front” isn't sure what it's supposed to be, so it settled for part Ebola commentary and part missionary life, which ends up being pretty sporadic.
I'll be continuing this whenever possible, covering both the developments in my personal life and whatever news comes my way concerning the current Ebola outbreak. Including taking iPhone pictures of signs I've never seen before. (Guilty as charged.) My sisters tell me I look like a tourist. (Certainly not guilty as charged.)
But, I've got this notion in my mind that I'm writing down things that people are interested in. So I can afford looking slightly idiotic as I brandish my smart phone and fake a wide-eyed tourist look.
Next up is Part III, which will feature dozens of new photos...including some ridiculously cool ones I took underwater. Happy reading!
