Feeling Nostalgic

My last post was all about beds, and I was feeling pretty nostalgic when I pulled all those pictures together.  As soon as I posted it, I realized I left out some very important beds: the hanging beds that Mia slept in for 5 months!  So I went looking for these pics…

We all slept in hanging beds in Yelapa, and it definitely took some adjustment.  Everyone had to get used to rocking around every time you roll over or shift your weight.  Mia had to learn the importance of NOT climbing out of the bed unassisted, how to wait patiently for us to help her in and out of bed, how to keep the mosquito net tucked in, etc.  And we had to learn to trust our daughter’s learning ability.

And thinking about all that stuff got me feeling nostalgic about our recent and temporary home of Yelapa…

We made big adjustments to live there and, as a reward, were privileged to step outside of our “normal life” and live a little differently.  It was a fabulous family adventure that none of us will ever forget.  What fun to experience that together!
