Nalandson and Dalencia’s Questions About America: 2 Weeks Out
The countdown is on! Two weeks until our family heads to the States for two whole months! This will be the longest break we’ve had from Haiti since we moved here in 2011, and the first we’ve had altogether. To say we are excited would be an understatement. Even Jake is waking up every morning calling out for “Poppy’s boat” and “Airplane.”
While in the States we will be spending a lot of time with family and friends, introducing Nalandson and Dalencia to all the grandparents, aunts and uncles, cousins, and close friends of ours they have never met. A huge chunk of our time will also be spent meeting with churches and individuals about Emmaus House. We are greatly looking forward to meeting with supporters face to face, for this is something we don’t often get to do.
As our departure date get closer and closer, Nalandson and Dalencia have been overflowing with questions about what America will be like. It’s been fun to watch their imaginations run wild. Although they are excited to be going in the summer, they are pretty disappointed they still will have to hold off a while before experiencing their first snow.
Anyway, I have been trying my best to keep a running record of some of N and D’s funniest questions so I could share with you. Maybe you can help my kiddos out and answers a few of them of them 😉
Will we be able to drink juice and milk everyday?
Will there be trash on the ground?
Is church going to be 4 hours long there too?
Are things in American expensive?
Will there be lizards and frogs inside of Gran’s house?
Will we need to bring our mosquito zapper?
Can I try cotton candy in America?
The pilot who will fly our airplane from Haiti to America, can we trust him?
Will there be people walking in the street with the big baskets on their heads selling things?
Do dogs bark loud there, or only in Haiti?
Will I have to go buy the drinking water everyday?
Can we walk on a sidewalk one day?
Do they have Moana in America?
Will Daddy always walk around without a shirt on like he does here?
Got an answers?!?
