I can't remember the last time I was this exhausted. This week has been beyond crazy. Here is everything we have going on... first week of school... 2 mission teams both with about 15 people... 3 members from a church in Seattle who wanted to check out Salud y Paz for future trips... have I mentioned it was the first week of school? It was a CRAZY week, but I have realized this week how much I really love it here and working with Salud y Paz. I am going to try to summarize the week through these pictures. I really wish I had the time to write out and share everything that made this week so amazing (yet stressful). The first picture is of a little preschooler during recess time. During recess I usually stop what I'm doing and go out to the playground to play with the kids.
This is Jose the PE teacher. He comes to the school on Wednesdays and Fridays. He is great and you can tell how much the kids love him. They sing little songs which are cute and it was hilarious this morning to watch the little kids try to hula hoop with hula hoops bigger than them.
In case you haven't gotten enough pictures of me with Luisa Elaine here is another cute one from a few days ago. Just precious.
So tonight Heather and I had our upstairs neighbors down for sushi. When Heather said that she wanted to make sushi I just thought go for it because I had never made it before, but I was actually impressed at how easy and fun it was to make. Here is the first step... place seaweed on the bamboo wrap thingy.
So yesterday Wayne told me that he wanted to me go to Guatemala City tomorrow morning to pick up a new mission team and stay with them for the weekend in Chichicastenango. I am excited to start working with Wayne with the mission teams coming to Guatemala in addition to the work I'll still be doing in the school. I know this weekend will be a challenge for my Spanish. To be honest I am completely excited to be working more closely with the mission teams, but I am worried about my Spanish skills. I just have to keep reminding myself that the more I use it the more I will learn. Wish me luck this weekend.
