A Cacophony

We are back to the blog! I have internet available a couple times a week now, so we can start writing down all these stories that have been stacked in our heads for almost two months! Now I can't remember any short ones . . .

I can say that Lebanon living is an experience for the ears. Our normal soundtrack of children is rounded out by the wicked chicken next door. Yes, a rooster with a reputation. He is known in the village for having no sense of time. When we first arrived we thought, "How quaint, to wake up to the natural sounds of a rooster in a village." Then we spent our first night waking to those natural sounds at 1am, 2:30, 4, 5, 6, I don't even know. Now we are getting used to the sound and can sleep through it, thank God! The other night we felt a lot of empathy for Noah. Not only was the rooster crowing, but our 3 newborn kittens and our 2 2-month old kittens were all yapping at the same time. Plus we had our own two offspring, hunters hunting birds, AND we were trying to have a conversation. It is like life here, it all comes at the same time and it is rich, diverse, and truly chaotic!
