here is what i love about malang, indonesia today....
saturday we packed up the family, some lunch for the kids and a ball and headed to the center of town, called alun-alun. there's nothing too special about alun-alun, it just an a grassy area with benches, a dirty fountain that wasn't on and a lot of random people laying around. in boston i loved going to the boston commons to play in the grass, watch the people and just be in the city. so, doing that here makes this city feel a little more like home.
we're always sure to be watched and usually approached when we go out with our kids. luke made some buddies that played with him. he liked them. danny also met a guy that he talked to for almost an hour. i didn't think it would be a cute to take a picture of them talking :) but i was proud of danny for being able to talk that long in indonesian! progress... slowly but surely.
mary wasn't in the best mood this afternoon, well really she just didn't want me to take her picture. she played and ran around with the kids too, tried to climb the tree like them and pretended to play tag (she could not keep up with the kids, obviously). and, she's eating her daily lunch... a peanut butter and honey sandwich. she eats it everyday and i make a whole sandwich a few times a week and eat the other half. yummy.
