A Day at Nahumba

Four weeks ago we said goodbye to our families and started on this grand adventure. Almost three weeks ago we left Lusaka to stay at Nahumba guest house in Choma. In case you were wondering what a typical day is like while we’re in transition, here’s a little glimpse…

  1. Enjoyed the pictures so much guys, Both of us did! We especially enjoyed the picture of Arja cutting Jamie’s hair. It’s just so good to see both of the families, and see that you are all healthy and happy! Thank you so much! Keep those pictures coming!

  2. Julianne,
    So glad that things are going well. The boys look so happy and playing in all that fresh air lets them have great sleeps. You’re looking great and yes, I can see a baby bump. Hope you’re doing well and into your new home soon. Everyone says hi. Take care and keep the pictures and stories coming.

  3. Just love these pics!! Praying for you guys and hoping that things are getting a bit easier even though you haven’t been able to move yet. I know that must be frustrating and difficult at times.

  4. Oh Julianne it is soo exciting to watch your adventure with your family and friends and also the BABY BUMP!!! Keep the good news coming!!! Thinking of you and your family!
