It has been almost a month since my last post. In the month we have finished five weeks of school. Blown up a volcano, tried to make an earthquake, and tried to kill a killer spider. I have learned that Terry can go three months without a haircut. I can live with one set of towels and a set of sheets. I refuse to pay 79.00 for a set of sheets. We have learned that rice and potatoes go together as a meal. Terry can learn to play the bass guitar, and be in a praise band. My dear sweet classical husband is learning to color outside the lines.
Becca and I spotted sweet corn in the store and thought we had gone to heaven. It was like we had found gold. No, we didn't buy all of it because the corn was very expensive. We also found blueberries, we bought them out. Becca had three containers and I had two. The stores here don't stock much and when they are out, it may be a while before you see it back on the shelves. Someone had said that you almost never see blueberries in the store.
School is going well. We are enjoying the ministry here. Terry is taking opportunities to minister in Bible studies, English classes and preaching. This Sunday he will be preaching without an interpreter. I have learned the art of taking trash out and getting the cans back in. I take that back. I just ran down to get the cans and I almost fell into a hole in the sidewalk that had to have been dug the last two hours. I don't understand why I don't see more people in casts here.
I would like to introduce you to a future teacher. It has been such a joy to watch as the students grow in their faith and in learning.
