As some of you may know, Dennen and I spent some time living in Peru 2 summers ago. We lived with a family that treated us like their own family and we couldn't have asked for better people to live with. Maria was the woman that worked for Expand Peru (the organization we volunteered through). We lived with her and her cute grandparents, Mama Brigita and Papa Oscar.
They had meals prepared for us every day we were there (which was a month). I don't know about some of you, but I don't think I've EVER prepared a full-on meal for every day of the month. It was really sweet of them to do for us and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting down together and laughing and having a good ol' time.
Last week we got a package from them for Finn. This is what they sent us.
The folded piece of fabric is a Peruvian baby carrier/sling. We're not quite sure how to fold it and tie it on to carry our baby, so we better figure that out before the time comes or it could turn out bad. Here is a picture of a traditional Peruvian woman carrying her baby. It doesn't look too difficult to figure out right?
It really warmed the cockles of our hearts to receive such a thoughtful gift. It also made us miss Peru... The hospitality that we were shown was amazing and I can't wait to return the favor to someone that stays with us someday.
