This was day 5 for Halle in the hospital. The girls are getting stir crazy. There was another one from the orphanage in today. They were being silly, but not bad. I just hope they get out tomorrow. We probably won't know about that until tomorrow. We also may lose our room tomorrow, because they have another soccer game and the opposing team's fans have reserved the whole hotel. We have been paying a few days at a time, because there is no way to know how long we will be here. Therefore, we may have to move tomorrow. We are waiting to hear from them on that tonight. We were impressed today when Halle pulled out my passport and started reading "Laura Marie Parish", "visa", etc. They had told us they were learning some English, mainly the alphabet, but we didn't expect her to read so well. They can count to ten, and say a few more English phrases. We had asked her last week if she wanted to practice English, and her reply was "No, I'll just wait until I get to the United States, and then I'll learn very fast" (through our translator). We are not doubting that she will. Our oldest son, Nick, left for college today. I wish we could have made it back for him. We are very appreciative of good friends that are helping him in our absence. The pictures are of the hospital and our favorite pizza place, which we ate at tonight.
