Emma & Justin are checking in...



It has been awhile since you've seen these smiles!  But Justin and Emma are well.  They are in a new school, now beginning to learn french.  They are on their way to becoming multi-lingual like Claude.  They are still enjoying having all sorts of friends and family around.  Justin is enjoying getting to know his Uncle Cadeau (Claude's youngest brother) and Emma remains loyal to Senge Leonie (Claude's aunt).  It is so fun to see them make this family connections.  It is equally wonderful to see them steeped in their culture, to begin to take in what it is to be born Burundian.  Emma is learning to dance a traditional dance.  Justin is working on his kirundi.  They are engaging their culture and appear to be savoring every minute!  Other than a few scrapes here and there, they have remained completely healthy.  As a matter of fact, Justin is actually putting on weight!  So Justin and Emma are thriving in Burundi.
