A bit of travel

August 1st, 2007 | By Sara and Vincent living in India | More from Sara and Vincent

I was getting ready to travel to Coimbatore, and this time had booked a flight since my baby is still quite small and I didn’t think it wise to put him on the rickety bus up. People were also known to get bug bites – so, yes we were definitely not going that way. Since […]

Timely call

July 11th, 2007 | By Sara and Vincent living in India | More from Sara and Vincent

Today I was calling up a few people to invite them to our ‘Activated Club Meeting’. I had a feeling that I should call one particular man and did the same. During our conversation he told me that he had just been thinking of calling me 5 minutes earlier and couldn’t put it off. He […]

The baby is now a month old, and still nameless. What a wonder! Somehow my Leo mind and my husbands Gemini mind don’t seem to come to a conclusion on this one… ok give it a week and we will have it. Right now we are understaffed by 5 people; Dani, Sunshine, David, Laura, and […]

My little ‘man child’ was born on June 4th, Monday, at 3:22 pm. I had labor through the day before and I was all excited and packing away until I fell asleep and the contractions stopped. In the evening they picked up again till they were two minutes apart and about 30 or more seconds […]

We have been working on our set up in the preschoolers’ room, and….voila, I can say with a smile that we have almost completed it. Of course, it will always be a work in progress and we will need to upgrade our materials, equipment etc etc. But some major things have gotten done. For one, […]

What do you know…..its June the 3rd, my due date and it looks like I may actually go into labor today! I am at the moment getting contractions that are about 20 seconds long and they are 10 minutes apart. It’s definitely still the beginning stage, but something tells me by tonight we are going […]

One week to go

June 1st, 2007 | By Sara and Vincent living in India | More from Sara and Vincent

…till the baby is born! The due date is the 3rd of June, but what makes life even more exciting is that our doctor is going out of town on the 7th. So, should this child decide to show up a day or two late – oops.  There is also a wonderful woman by the […]

Cheers for Munj!

June 1st, 2007 | By Sara and Vincent living in India | More from Sara and Vincent

Cheers for Munj, the new addition to our team!  A lovely girl, and brilliant with children. Her real name is Mariangela, but the kids and all call her Munj for short.  I was a bit concerned as before when a new teacher would come, the toddlers would break out in all kinds of embarrassing and […]

Flights, tracts and encounters

May 27th, 2007 | By Sara and Vincent living in India | More from Sara and Vincent

A couple of us flew to Bombay for some meetings that had to happen. Thank God they let me on the plane at 8 months and I was thankful I had gotten a ‘fit to travel’ document from my doctor. It was funny to see the people at the ticketing counter looking at my belly […]

A new project
