If you have been following our lives over the past couple of months, you might have noticed Curious George in some of our pictures. That little monkey has been on quite the adventure as of late. As the most recent addition to our family, he has already traveled to Atlanta, Washington DC, Switzerland, Kenya, South Africa and finally to his new home in Lesotho. That is certainly a lot of travel for such a little monkey and you can see why he was in such need of a bath!
Curious was there as we said goodbye in the hotel room. Flying across the Atlantic, Curious kept Kyle company during his few naps and many sleepless hours. In Kenya, Curious went with Kyle to class regularly and frequented meal times with him as well. Back on the airplane, Curious snuggled up to Kyle and geared up for a long night on the red eye flight. Once we got to Lesotho, Curious and Kyle took a nice snoozer whilst we drove to South Africa for a short visit. Over the past three weeks, we have been nestled back into the mountainous woods of central Lesotho, experiencing village life first hand. Curious has been here, too, faithfully keeping Kyle company during his naps and at bedtime. Yesterday while Jonathan, Kyle and I washed the laundry, we pulled Curious out of his comfortable new home in Kyle’s crib and gave that little monkey a bath! His hands, feet and face were so dirty, you would’ve barely recognized him. We took turns scrubbing and rinsing him until we all agreed that he was a much cleaner monkey than before. In typical monkey fashion, he hung upside down to dry over night and we rescued him first thing this morning. He is as good as new and ready for many more adventures with his best friend, Kyle!
Bath time for Curious!
