New camera and other fun stuff!

Well, it finally came! I'm so excited! My new digital Pentax K10D arrived just about an hour ago! I'm dying to play with it, but unfortunately I have to wait until the battery has finished charging.
I'm so happy if got here in time!
Kaitlyn has started school. Her teacher seems nice although not dressed the way you think a 3rd grade teacher should dress. Kaitlyn says she looks "fancy" and that would be the word I would use for her too. Kaitlyn is happy to be back at her old school with some of her old friends. We will miss the year round schedule, but 29 kids per class is just too much!
Aidan is ready for the start of preschool. He has a new "Cars" lunchbox and is not so patiently asking me if TODAY is the day he starts. Poor thing has a week to go! I know he is going to love it though!
I am in the midst of getting ready for Mozambique still. Memorizing True Love Waits material. Seeing what hand me downs I have to take to the orphans. Trying to figure out how I am only going to take 35 lbs of clothing and toiletries with me for a 2 week period. I usually take that much for a weekend trip, let alone 14 days! I'm sure I can do it though! I've purchased everything on my list for things I need to take with me and now I just need to get my Dr.'s appointment to round out my list. I can't believe that in 2 weeks from today I'll be on my way there!
Aaron is working hard and enjoying *almost* every minute of it! I think he really likes this job and it will be one that he can probably stick with for the rest of his working life. I'm so grateful that he enjoys his work.
Alrighty, off to go see if my battery is charged and to play with my new camrea. Pictures to come soon!

I'm so glad to hear the camera FINALLY made its way to you. Please take some of Cameron's clothes if you won't want them to the orphans.

While I am typing this Cameron is reading the About Me section...about you.
