Today I went to the city alone to be able to spend more time looking around, I was able to buy some noce things at the goodwill store!

Hoje fui para ciddade sozinha para poder gastar um pouco mais olhando as coisas, consegui comprar umas coisas bem legal em uma loja tipo brechô

Vandaag lekker even alleen naar de stad geweest om wat langer rond te kunnen kijken, heb zelfs wat leuke dingetjes gevonden in de Leger des Heils winkel!

Efraim now sleeps in a special toddler bed! We have to put warm colthes on him as he doesn’s want to be covered with blankets!

Efraim dorme aqui numa cama pequena, ideal! Temos que colocar roupas quentes para dormir porque ele não quer que a gente cobre ele com edredon!

Efraim slaapt in een echt peuterbed! We moeten hem een warme pyjama aandoen want hij wil niet onder de dekens!

I went for some shopping to Nunspeet, alone because it was raining, again! But when I came back the sun came out, so I took Efraim for a long walk and we even fed the deer and goats at a little park close by. Jander was away with my dad.

Eu fiz umas compras em Nunspeet, fui sozinha porque estava chuvendo, mas quando voltei tinha até um pouco de sol, entã levei Efraim para uma caminhada até um parquinho onde demos comida aos cabritos e veados. Jander foi passear com meu pai.

Ik ben even naar Nunspeet geweest (Action, Xenos!), alleen, omdat het regende. Maar toen ik terugkwam kwam de zon er een beetje door, dus nam ik Efraim mee voor een lekkere lange wandeling naar het hertenkampjes waar we de herten en geitjes gevoerd hebben. Jander was op pad met mijn vader.

My friend Erika came by and after a cup of tea we went to another goodwill store where I boot some rubber boots for Efraim, you can;t live without in Holland!

Minha amiga Erika veio e depois de nosso chá nos fomos para uma loja de moveis e coisas usados, consegui comprar botas de borracha para Efraim, uma necessidade com este tempo de chuva aqui na holanda!

Mijn vriendin Erika kwam langs en na een kopje thee gingen we naar de kringloopwinkel waar ik voor Efraim onder andere rubberen laarsjes heb gekocht, in Nederland kan je toch niet zonder?

Sinterklaas arrived in Holland (sorry, long story, google it!), there was some fun going on in the city so I went with Efraim and my friend Marga with her son Munda, after we went to Marga’s house. Than I had to rush to get ready to speak at a group of teenagers! I even took some brazilian sweets for them to taste!

Sinterklaas chegou na Holanda (desculpe, longa historia, pode pesquisar no Google!), tinha alguns eventos legal na cidade então fui lá com Efraim, minha amiga Marga e o filho dela Munda, depois fomos para casa dela. Depois tive que me apressar para ministrar em um grupo de adolescentes, até levei beijnhos de cocô para eles provar um pouco de doce do Brasil!

Sinterklaas is aangekomen! Er was een zwarte pietenfeest in Elburg, dus daar ging ik heeb met Efraim, mijn vriendin Marga en haar zoontje Munda, daarna nog even naar haar huis, en toen haasten om me klaar te maken om te spreken op tienergroep Ad Fontes, ik had zelfs een braziliaanse lekkernij voor ze meegenomen!

We had a really good service at church, than we went to the north of holland to a party of my aunt and uncle. A great time seeing family again, my uncles and aunts, my cousins, and my grandmother. Efraim played (and fought) alot with some children his age, and as soon as we hit the road, he was asleep in the car!

A gente teve um culto muito bom na igreja, depois fomos para a norte de holanda para uma festa de meu tio e tia. Foi um tempo muito bom para rever meus parentes: meus tios, primos, e minha avó. Efraim brincou (e brigou) bastante com crianças da idade dele, e assim que chegamos na estrada para voltar ele já estava dormindo no carro!

We hadden een hele goede dienst in de kerk en daarna gingen we richting het noorden van nederland voor een feest van mijn oom en tante. Het was erg leuk om zo gelijk iedereen van de familie van mijn moeders kant weer te kunnen zien. Efraim heeft veel gespeeld (en wat ryzie gemaakt!) met kinderen van zijn leeftijd enzodra we op de snelweg waren was hij al lang vetrokken!

Leuke verhaal Melanie!
Ow wat heerlijk om helemaal mee te leven over de plaatsen waar je naar toe geweest bent over de echt oer hollandse dingen die jullie doen. Ik kan mezelf helemaal in je verhaal verplaatsen en mis Nederland dan ineens ook wel een beetje...

Goede reis verder!

Wouter en Denise
