We left Asuncion at 5:30am and headed home. After a few stops we arrived in Jataity at 2:00. I was expecting more of a home sweet home feeling, but instead I was overwhelmed by my little rustic house. I cleaned what I could with the rag I found in the house. Why hadn't I thought to bring cleaning supplies from the city? Jeff and three kids napped as illness still has its hold on my family. At 8:00pm the movers arrived with our things from our teammate's storage unit. We watched as ants, spiders, and bugs poured forth from every box. Gross! When the movers left we began to cobble together pillows and blankets and 2 good mattress (the only ones without mold). We were exhausted!

The a rain storm brought cooler weather and a leaky roof. My sink now drains thanks to a flexible hose Jeff found on his grocery run yesterday. The fan in my room now works thanks to a $1 part. Most of the unpacking is done and there's room to move around the house. Pictures are even up on my walls which makes me smile. It was great to be able to cook on my new stove, play games on a cleared table and read books to the kids on beds with clean sheets. We have only one sick kid and Jeff seems to be on the mend.
