We are the Snyder family and ... we are different

This is the story of our journey to our daughter in Ethiopia. God is preparing our family for her and preparing her heart to come home to her family. We chose the difficult road of trusting and obeying God. It is worth every step!

Thursday we had another low key day.  We did decide to finally go up to the playroom at the top of the guest house and check it out.  You have to get a key to get in and it's a little 10x10 room with some toys and little chairs and things in it.  Dustin played with her quite a bit in the room which was really nice for some daddy and daughter bonding.  Dustin also used the pocket Amharic dictionary to communicate with her, it was great because we got to hear her talk more and she taught us a few things.

We had another makeshift lunch, this time with Ramen noodles, and took another nap today.  We ate dinner at the Zebra Grill and had the best, no really, the best chicken wings ever.  So delicious!  We did decide that she is not comfortable with new environments as we went down the street to a couple of shops the night before and she held onto my neck for dear life and at the restaurant she seemed very uneasy.  We will try and not take her anymore places than we can help.  She is very shy around new people.

That night we had the Snyder dance party in our room, complete with lots of party balloons.  While washing her hands she started singing, "baby, baby, oh" the Justin Beiber song so Dustin uploaded the Beiber album and we danced and laughed.  We had so much fun together!

We knew she was a lot of fun, but we didn't know she was so so hilarious!

Our boys really liked the "ABCD room" on the roof. Jeremiah really liked putting the letters together. I'm glad you went to the Zebra Grill...they really do have the best chicken wings. Can't wait until you get home!
