The school is only a block away and when the kids come home, we do our homeschooling.
I think on the first day, only Brad and I were really nervous! Nate and Kris were so excited about the opportunity and they loved it right away.
Brad took only a few hours longer :)
He loves going now!

Maria's brother and her Dad (when he is sober) are in the middle of building an "addition" to their house. The boys are standing in Maria's parents new bedroom.
All the kids love Maria. She is very cheerful and has a beautiful smile.
Maria's family had a very small piece of property. However, thanks to some help from friends in Canada, and Lia and Nico, they were able to buy the lot next to them. Now they have more room for the kids to play as well as room to plant a garden.
Today may be the last day we see Maria! She has an opportunity to get a good job working for a family in the city. Sadly (for all of us-especially for Nico and Lia since she has been like part of their family for many years now) she has to start her new job on Saturday. It is a difficult move for Maria because her mother depends on her very much, and yet it is difficult to get a good job in town here and Maria helps to support the family.
How we pray for Maria as we go our separate ways! Please, let us all pray that she will continue to seek the Lord.

Most of their week here was full of meetings and visits.
Enjoying a delicious lunch (made by Lia) with the obreros.
