Sorry Bernie

I have been sick the last couple of days 
but somehow I have also managed to be productive.
Happily motivated over here!
(even when it feels like an elephant is sitting on my head)

Anyway, quick update...

The guys have been working hard.
Their first payday was Friday.
And today they finished *one* new-design wallet.
(Don't worry, they're making more)

I got to spend some much needed time at the orphanage today.
We had a grand time taking many many photos. 

Thieves are gettin' serious. 
Luckily for us, we have a pretty awesome night guard.

Finally, tonight I thought I lost our 3rd dog Bernie.
I searched in the house, our yard, 
I even went out in the streets calling his name.
And then, that pretty awesome night guard I mentioned, found him.
Turns out I had locked Bernie in the kitchen.
For 3 hours.
Sorry Bernie.

Oh, and I was in my local newspaper back home.
