We graduated!! Can you believe it? I know, amazing right? Ok, so everyone graduates when they leave the school here, but still… 🙂 We know that we have improved since we arrived (for sure) but we have a LONG way to go still. I have to admit, I get excited because now I can read people’s posts on Facebook that are in Spanish, and can figure out what they are saying! Oh the little joys in life… But now we are entering the sink or swim time, so hopefully we can swim!
There was also a fiesta on the day of our graduation. May have possibly been because we are leaving… Not too sure. 🙂 Just kidding, it was for Navidad! We have had stockings there at the school and each person got to draw a name and put things in their person’s stocking, secretly of course. Then at the party, you got to hand your person their stocking. Then the staff there at the school provided us with lunch. It was very sweet of them. We were blessed and made some really great friends here in Costa Rica! It is sad to know that we will probably not see some of them again here on this earth. But the time here was made so much better because of our friends! So thank you to everyone who made our time here enjoyable! 🙂
We leave tomorrow for San Jose. Our flight to Peru leaves Sunday morning! We will first fly to Lima and then to Cuzco a few days later. So we have been packing ALL day today!! It really isn’t very fun. We have bought some things for Peru, people have given us gifts, and things just add up! Now we are trying to stuff it all in our bags. 🙂 Good times! But, the good news is, that we are pretty much done! So now we can enjoy the Sabbath! I am so glad we have the Sabbath to look forward to every week!
