In two days we leave Kenya. For a year. It’s surreal, intimidating, and also a little exciting. 

One of the checklist items was getting check ups for the family. (Our health insurance covers a lot more outside of the US). Jack was due for a polio shot that was out of stock everywhere. It just came in yesterday, so I ran him back to the Pediatrician for that and a yellow fever shot (required for when he returns to Kenya next year). He was not thrilled. He wasn’t interested in ice cream or a hot dog to sweeten the deal, but fixated on a chocolate frosted donut with sprinkles. Those are not easy to come by in Nairobi. 

However, after a little prayer and driving, I am happy to report mission accomplished for both objectives.
