Hi. Remember me? Your friendly missionary blogger here in Costa Rica. Yeah. We're still alive and kicking...sorta.
While I had a couple of days of feeling a lot better, you know, like being able to walk around without wanting to puke, I am back to feeling cruddy. But, we have just two more days of school before we fly to the States on Thursday!
But I realized a lot has happened in the last week. Instead of getting into all the nitty gritty details, I'll just say we made Christmas cookies for the boys' teachers and since I hadn't the foggiest where to get decorating sugar, I google dying it at home, and sure enough it came out great!
And then the boys had their Christmas program last week. Forrest can sing Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer in perfect Spanish. Elliot didn't want to sing his song at all. In fact as I was going into the chapel for the program, he ran up to me and said, "I don't want to do this." Ahhh, and yet parents and teachers think Christmas programs are a good idea.
You'll notice a couple of photos with Forrest in a flower head piece. Yeah, not completely sure about that. I think it had to do with the song, something about the angles in the heavens sing and the flowers on the earth sing to the newborn king. Errr, something...preschoolers singing is always hard to decifer, then through in another language and your guess is as good as mine. But I will say that when Forrest walked in with his flower face, he looked at me and whispered, "This is the boring part." HA! Anyway. Enjoy the photos. And if I don't talk to you before Thursday, please pray for our trip on Thursday and Friday.
