Back to Regular Life

January 4, 2017

Tomorrow marks four weeks since we have returned from our trip outside of Congo and I really do feel like we are finally back in the swing of things.  Someone recently pointed out that I hadn’t blogged since my ominous December 19 post, but hopefully most of you were regaled with my normal Instagram and Facebook fodder enough to know that we are fine.  The city is chill.  There is still a lot to work on for the next transition of power, but it does seem like the Congolese are mostly restrained, wanting to avoid violence and war.  Praise God for that!

Matthew is spending his days taking on two major construction projects and managing their completion.  I have less jumped and more tip-toed back into homeschooling and normal stay-at-home mom/wife stuff.  It is bizarre to take so much time off from such things and then suddenly have to do it every day again!

Our Christmas and New Year’s was rather normal and low key.  Since we were fairly celebrated-out, after having spent so much time eating and partying and gifting in the US, we decorated and tried to make it as festive as possible, without feeling like we needed to go all out.  It’s hard with the heat, and family so far away.

Looking ahead…we have a few things and events coming in the next few months, but mostly it will be business as usual.  Visitors, school, routines, hosting, etc will make up how we spend most of our family time.  I can appreciate these seemingly monotonous weeks so much more when I know that every two-ish years, we uproot and head out for months at a time.  I love that there is a season for everything.  And, of course, living in Kinshasa, there is never a dull moment!
