New artwork at the School

We recently got two new beautiful murals painted at the school by summer groups. The bathroom building got painted with a Noah's Ark scene and the side of our main building got a scene with Jesus and the children and the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:14
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

Fun Day

A few weeks ago I invited Nalleli, one of the older girls from Mata Gorda, over to our house to spend the night. She is best friends with our niece, Pricila, so I invited her as well. It was a crazy fun weekend which started out with a VERY special treat that Cristian brought back from the capital: Krispy Kreme!!!

After the girls spent Saturday helping me clean the house (they teach them young here, a tradition I will definitely continue with my own children) :-) we took a trip to the beach on Sunday. Nalleli had never been to the beach before so she was soooo excited. It was so fun for me to see such excitement and so special that we were able to treat her to such a fun day.
Here are Nalleli and Pricila:

Where The Wild Things Are

This was one of my favorite books as a kid and I always love reading it to the kids in my class. I'm pretty sure most of them have it memorized now...

Here I am "roaring my terrible roar" along with the wild things. :-)
