Sunday was freezing cold here - I'm sure it was -40C with the windchill!! We went to church in the morning and it didn't seem too bad when we went there. But coming back, it was so cold, there are no words to describe it. Wowzers! It was the perfect day to stay inside but we wanted to visit with one of Der's cousins who was here from Alberta. So, after naps, we made our way over to Aunt Louanne and Uncle Dwight's house to see Roanne, Daren and their kiddos. We hadn't met Bryce or Kenna yet and Kayla was a lot bigger than the last time we saw her! It was good to get to visit with everyone again.

Monday was back to school for Brody and Hannah so Kirsi was going through B and H withdrawals. :) Luckily they managed to come over for a little while later in the afternoon so Kirsi wasn't missing them too much.

Yesterday, Nana and I took Kirsi grocery shopping for the first time since we've been here and she loved it. My little girl loves shopping! In the afternoon, Der was putting Kirsi down for her nap and she wasn't wanting to go to sleep. Der told her that she had to sleep because he knew she was tired. She said to him, "Daddy, why I tired?" She wanted to know how he knew she was tired when she didn't think she was!

Monkey attack, Maid & hired help, Food, and Day 1 in the Books

The doorbell rang this morning and a very shy, humble young man in his 20s introduced himself as Vineet. Vineet is our dhobi.

Every Monday and Thursday morning, we leave our laundry outside our door. Vineet takes and washes, irons, and folds the laundry and returns it to us by the end of the day.

Kirsi, Aidan, and I are having him do our laundry. Dana is doing her own. This service costs us $70 CDN/month.

For all of the sweating that we're going to do here, we feel it's worth it.

This afternoon, we met Sujata, who will be our maid. We had phoned her months ago while still living in Canada and arranged to hire her when we arrived in New Delhi.

She seems very nice and the family took to her immediately. She has worked for AES staff before so she knows the ins and outs of campus life.

Her main duties will be cooking and cleaning. She took cooking classes in Vietnamese, Thai, and Mediterranean cooking. She, of course, can cook Indian food as well. We gave her some rupe…

A Day of Firsts at an International School - Geckos, monkeys, and humidity oh my!

We arrived in New Delhi late last night to a warm welcome from the admin and support team from the American Embassy School New Delhi. It was nice meeting the people that were helping us get here in person. They've been very efficient and helpful in navigating the sea of paperwork of applications and visas.

Jet lag had me up at 4:00 in the morning and I immediately checked out the Hindi Devotional playlist on Google Music. I'm really digging the mellow, groove. Click on the link, turn up the music, and keep reading. Aidan is really digging the music, as well.

So far, it's been a day+ of firsts.

Kirsi and Aidan's first long international flight as independent children. They did a great job of navigating all of the steps involved in international travel and are pros now.Our new apartment is really nice - a video tour and pictures to come. Kirsi "loves our apartment, it's awesome."A gecko on the balcony at 1:30 in the morning sent the kids screaming to the sa…

Lodi Gardens & Kirsi's Soccer

Here is what our Saturday has looked like so far: Dana and Aidan Dana and Aidan went with the school group named HOPE at Lodi Gardens. There, they worked with the rest of the staff and students to offer activities to students from a local school. It's an amazing program.
Aidan said that it was "really awesome" to be able to work with the students and that Lodi Gardens was beautiful. 
Dana came away with some amazing photos.
