K1, UC Berkley & Raja

Maggie, Tiki, Dax and Gabby are all at K1.  They're having a great time (it looks like they are).  I dropped them off after flying straight there from Kigali and I'm sure they were exhausted.  But I know they are having the best time ever and I'm not the least bit worried that jet lag is getting them down.
I love this group of pictures because Tiki is with his cousin from Arizona, Peyton.  Those two have the greatest relationship!  They love each moment they get to be together and they get to be together for four weeks now!
I love the middle picture.  It is Tiki, Dax and Gabby with their cousin, LillyAnne.  I love that they all four found each other the first night.  The pic isn't great (couldn't the photographer have said, "hey you four, look at me and smile!"  Oh well.) but I love that they are all together!
This may be my favorite group of pictures.  This is Maggie truly happy.  Her smile is so genuine (especially in that middle picture on the right) and that makes my heart so happy.  I love when my girl is truly happy!
Meanwhile, Hays is at UC Berkley at an engineering camp for the week.  He is going to learn so much!  I am so excited that he gets to meet other kids who love to do what he loves and then the "professors" he will have (one is a big wig at NASA) will leave a lasting impact.  I cannot wait to hear all about it!!!

And in other news. . .we came home from Rwanda to a cat with a broken femur.  What?  Poor thing has been limping around for three weeks, so I took him to the vet yesterday and sure enough, he shattered the head of his femur.  Surgery?  Yep.  What in the world?  I am a dog person.  How do I have a cat (that should be the real question) who has to have surgery?  Oh my!  So, surgery for Raja on Wednesday.
