A Week in Tera
Daniel and Suzanne were home this entire week. It was a great time. They got to sleep in and relax after finishing their first quarter of school. It was also Jeremy's first week in Tera, so Daniel introduced him to a lot of his friends and showed him around a bit. John and I tried to spend as much time with the kids as possible. I spent a lot of time cooking and Suzanne was a wonderful helper in the kitchen. (The boys did KP duty, too! :) )
Suzanne got henna put on her feet. First you put black electrical tape on your feet to create a well-defined line for the henna. Then you put the henna on and leave it for several hours. When you take the henna off, your feet are a reddish color. This red color is then covered up with a special "something" that creates a chemical reaction and turns the red to black. You then have beautiful pitch black feet. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of the end product!
One day Daniel and Jeremy and co. rented bikes and rode around for about an hour. The bikes are all used and are not in top-notch condition! Jeremy's bike had no brakes and Daniel's chain kept coming off. But, hey! for about 25 cents, you can't get too picky! Tour de France, here we come!
