  • Church in Kuching

    Last evening I gave Queena and Ethan a date night and while they went out I stayed home with Dorie and James .   After baths we decided to play church.

    Here is James the preacher!

    When I told him it was time to preach he set up his own perch and pulpit as Dorie and I sat in the pews at the foot of the bed.

    He kept saying, “Now chapter 4…. now chapter 7….. now chapter 2″ and then he would page till he found a big number and announce that chapter.”   I know I’m not biased but it was adorable!

    Here’s Dorie the Sunday School teacher!

    We had a wonderful lesson on wise King Solomon.

    Followed by questions and The Preacher pointing out the right answer.

    Mark and Holly are still in India while I am enjoyi
    ng just being grandma here in Malaysia.
    The other morning I went outside to put some trash in the can along the road when just in front of me I heard a loud splat!   Here a 6 inch Gecko dropped from the ceiling right in front of me.

    Then yesterday as we were getting ready for a shopping excursion Ethan spotted a snail under the car.

    He tried to pull it out so we could get a better look at it but it was suction so hard on the cement.   I keep my eyes open and look where I’m walking!

    Yesterday we went on an hours drive to the border of Malaysia/Indonesia where each weekend Indonesians bring their wares to sell all along the streets.  It was so fascinating.

    Many of the stalls had these long green looking beans.  They reminded me of our pole limas back in the states.   Ethan chewed on one of the beans followed by all sorts of wild noises.  I figured then and there if Ethan didn’t like them I KNEW I wouldn’t.

    Now these rambutans are a different story.  They are sweet, juicy and rather good.
    Check out this link to Ethan’s description of the fruit.

    Update on Dories sewing project:
    Goldilocks is finished and we are now working on the Three Bears.

  • It looks like she is enjoying her bath.  That looks like a fun church service too.  Watch out for those geckos.

  • Loved your post.. so glad you can be there

  • i love rambutans!!! i had my first one while i was in costa rica/nicaragua :) looks like you are enjoying your grandbabes to the fullest :) love you auntie polly wolly! 

  • I would love to have gone shopping with you. Always think those street vendors and their wares are so interesting! Looks like you are having a grand ole time!

  • We used to have a Bible story book just like that when our son was little — that’s almost 40 years ago!  An excellent book for little ones. 

  • Thanks so much again.  Most country folk of a certain age remember baths like Dorie’s.

  • It sure is fun to take a trip to Malysia through your experiences!  I was tickled to see Dorie with The Bible in Pictures for Little Eyes (original edition) as we grew up with that book (it’s literally falling apart as I also used the same one for our children) and I have purchased several of them on eBay so our children may someday use it with their children.  There’s nothing like those old paintings coupled with simple Bible stories and questions that even a youngster can answer. :)

  • Preach it, Brother James! I love it when children play church. I would have loved to have heard Dorie’s story. Love the children’s tub. And before you know it, Dorie will be coming to sewing retreat with her own projects!!
