Welcome to spring in Vicente Guerrero:
Yes, that is dust. We don't have much as far as seasons go, however around here Spring often just means Wind. Also, that you'd better get your laundry done early, so you can hang it up and get it back down again before it's dirtier than when you started.
I have been remiss in keeping up this blog. Sometimes it just seems like there is so much to write I don't even know where to start! And then Leo cries, or it's time to pick someone up, or give a class, or go to a class... well you get the picture. However those are all still just excuses and so here is my attempt at being a better communicator and letting you all in on what is keeping me busy these days.
Being a mom is the best thing that I get to do.
hair dye = girl bonding
That's right, I dyed their hair... black. So adventurous, these two.
I love that we got to go to the ball game together!
Also that there is actually something new to go out and see.
I also keep busy with my other kids.
Teaching english is challenging and sometimes frustrating, but always rewarding when I see these bright faces and hear them call, "Hello, Teacher!" when I see them around town.
I also have an adult class now which is a whole new challenge, but I love the new relationships and opportunities to share people's lives.
I am also still taking a class, every saturday, on teaching English as a second language. Only 5 more weeks to go!
(One day I will remember to take a picture there, too.)
We had a very impromptu birthday party for Mercedes (Minerva's daughter), who is now 5 whole years old.
I didn't know they were coming, so I was very glad that I have adopted my mom's habit of storing a few gifts in my closet, just in case.
Have I mentioned we have some really awesome friends?
We had Easter dinner together.
I love these people. This is everything - community and the people you share life with!
Oh yes, there are also our weekly cast changes. I am so thankful for our friend Dirk who is doing such a great job in straightening Leo's feet!
There is so much more to say, but it will have to keep for another post. For example, all of the very exciting things happening at our community center! (Besides the delightful english classes, of course)
I'd like to thank all of you who are praying for us, and ask that you would continue to do so.
Lots of love from Baja!
