It's mango season, my favorite fruit time of the year. We were at the store tonight and came across these mangos. Now, they are ridiculous, right? I can't actually believe the size...I have helped birth babies smaller than this thing. Do you know how much it cost? 15 pesos, less than 50 cents. What a deal.

Our kids

The good news though is that we're back in school now for our summer program. The kids are more amazing than ever and I realize now just how much I missed them. Their smiles and braids and headaches and tummy aches...I love every part of it. We are still growing by the day in regards to plans and changes at the school and look forward to what awaits us.


Still sorting things out on the good old computer. I promise I'll be a good blogger again someday when I can upload photos and work the programs again. Please don't stop checking. :)

So does anyone know if itunes is deleted if it's possible to ever get back all the songs that were in the library?? I fear the answer is no.


So my computer had a virus. It seems to be better now, although everything had to get deleted and reinstalled which is proving to Anyhow, I'm back and happy that my computer was revive-able and got cleaned out.

My computer is broken. If I haven't emailed you back, now you know why. Candace is nice and is letting me borrow hers. Computer is going to the doctor today to see if it is save-able. What was that someone once said about backing-up my things? Oh, that I should do it in case my computer broke sometime...hmmm.

Sorry for the complete lack of posting. I've been very un-interesting lately as we are on break from school and all I've been doing is boring work. We did go to a basketball game last night where a group of gringos along with some Dominicans from church played the local Montellano team. Gringos lost but it was still a fun game to be at.


I was sorting through some old boxes the other day and came across this:

My dream be a nurse and help sick people get well and work at the hospitle. I would like everybody be friends, have no rich or poor, have no hunger, have no murders, or suiside, have all smart, no teasing, hitting, kicking, punching, or in other words, no fighting. We all agree on the same Saturdy cartoons. Have all kids go to school. Have no child abuse, no anger, no crying. There would be no drugs and acahol and smoking. THE END (exact spelling and punctuation)

So who would've thought that 9 year old would someday really be a nurse after working in the hospital, would hate the differences between the rich and poor, would be working amongst hunger and need. The Saturday cartoons aren't so pertinent, but the "all kids go to school" is what we're working on. Oh the dreams of kids.

I ate goat for the first time yesterday. Not one of the cute ones that run and jump and play though. Yah. I ate goat.
