Many people have asked how our daughters feel about moving to the DR. I have asked both kids to write a post. I will not edit them in any way because I want it to be in their words and for them to have their voices heard.
NOW…A POST FROM LEXIE
Hey everyone! I am gonna talk about how I feel about the move. The first time we talked about it i wanted to wake up from my bad dream well at least i wished it was a dream. I did not want to move to a totally different country. That was until i went on my first mission trip, when we first arrived in the village all the kids were all ready to be your best friends!!!! Not like the people in the States! They would go right up to you and hold your hand, and it makes you feel special. Not to be rude but those boys can be quite crazy! We were so afraid of the bugs that anytime something touched us we screamed in horror! So one boy decided to pick up some grass and tap our ankles with it! The kids are very sweet once you start to hangout with them! They LOVE jumprope! I stink at jumprope but they would jumprope with me anyway! The only bad thing about the Dominican really is the water! You have to brush your teeth with a water bottle! You cant sing in the shower because you would swallow the water! That was really hard for me!
Time to talk about i feel. My favorite part! Everyone always asks me if i am excited about the move and i say no. They always tell me it is going to be a blessing and how i am going to make a difference in their lives but what i really want them to say is I am going to miss you or maybe they can go themselves! I just want someone to say yeah i get it i wouldn’t want to go either! I wouldn`t be offended! i would be happy! I know this is a big step and everyone is so encouraging, but all i want to do is stay here! That took a lot off my chest! I have to go now! I love you all! and Merry Christmas ❤ ~Lexie
