Last Friday was "Dia Loco" at Cruz's school. As a fundraiser for the 6th grade class the kids got to dress how they wanted and pay 2 Quetzales (about 25 cents) for doing so. Cruz was excited about it and chose to wear his baseball uniform that day.

Saturday morning we loaded the car and drove into Guatemala City. We arrived in time for lunch and stopped to eat at Taco Bell. On a side note, we are thrilled that construction has started on a new Taco Bell here in Chiquimula in the mall parking lot. It will be several months before it opens but we get more excited about it every time we go into town and see them working.
Afterwards I headed to the grocery store and David kept the boys entertained in the mall.
they loved this race car that was on display
they also loved getting to ride the carousel
That afternoon/ evening we attended a graduation party for one of our missionary kids who is finishing high school and heading to the States for college. It was a great time to not only celebrate him but spend some time with our IMB mission family as well.

Cruz took this picture of Gary and Mark. How funny!
We had a lasagna supper and then a wedding shower for Caleb's brother Andrew who is getting married later this month. Andrew and his fiance were not there but it is mission tradition to do a shower and then send the gifts home with the parents when they travel back to the States for the wedding. Pray for Andrew and Yumi as they begin their new life together later this month.
Here is Caleb with our boys. Our boys LOVE him! We are all going to miss him when he's gone.

CalebPray for him as he heads to the States to work for the summer and then as he begins Liberty University in the fall. We know God has good things in store for him.
We ended up sitting around talking with some of the other missionaries until after 1:00 a.m. I kept looking at my watch thinking I should go to bed but we were having such a great time laughing and talking that I just stayed up. I knew I would regret it the next morning when my boys were up at the crack of dawn. Sure enough at 5:30 a.m.(after Ben had already woken us up twice between 1 and 5) they were eager to get the day started. Ugh! What was high priority on our Sunday morning agenda? coffee, lots and lots of coffee!!!
Fast forward to today, we have two Bible studies this weekend. We will be in Lagunetas this afternoon and Nearar on Sunday morning. We would appreciate your prayers for both of these times of study. Thanks!
