Clearly I’ve not kept up as well as I should have on the goings on around here.
- Mark got into a school in the Navy that allows him to drill here in Managua all except for twice next year! That’s awesome!
- We are waiting for the deployment list for 2013 to come out, and selfishly hoping that Mark isn’t on it.
- Theo has a week of school left before he is done for the year. ACK!
- We are hoping to get the biodiesel project up and running next week. We are excited about teaching the kids some practical applications of chemistry, and also for cheaper fuel options.
- Since it’s nearing the end of the year we are busy in meetings. We’re putting together proposals, plans, goals, budgets, etc. for next year. It’s exciting and exhausting.
- I got the chance to be the houseparent (by myself!) at Casa Ester over the weekend. It was crazy. And fun. It was crazy fun!
- The rain is about done for the year. In its place is a cool wind. It’s very nice.
- I’ve started a garden. I’m not very good at gardening, but have watermelon, cantaloupe, red peppers and pineapple in the ground right now. I hope to have tomato added here shortly.
- Our worldview studies are going really well! The kids are participating and excited!
- Our first vocational training apprenticeship will begin in January. We’ve got a lot to do before then!
- We really miss our family and friends.
- We ate iguana recently. It was good, like chicken, but had a lot of little bones.
- I have run out of internet until the 21st, so anytime I want to communicate I have to run to the office. Not a problem, but definitely part of the reason for less than frequent communication.
- If you’ve followed our cat saga, you know that we’re on cat #6 and cat# 7. They are still alive and (dare I say?) thriving!
Once my fast internet is a go, I will attempt posting some more pics.
Love to you all,
