playing in Jutiapa
The rest of the day was spent shopping for supplies. Trips to the Capital can be very tiring because we always travel in with a long list of things to accomplish while there. We spend most of our time running around from place to place trying to get everything done. We don't go in often so we try to make the most of our trips when we do.
On Saturday morning we drove over to the Christian Academy of Guatemala to attend the graduation ceremony of two of our IMB missionary kids. Our mission family is a lot smaller these days so we felt that it was important for us to be there to show our support.

That evening we finished up our shopping by making a stop at a new store that recently opened- Save a Lot. Several other missionary families have talked about the products that are sold there and we wanted to check it out. We liked it and found several things that we have never been able to buy here before. We always get excited when we find new food items!

We stopped for supper before heading back to our mission house for the night. The boys begged us to go to a place with a playland. We chose IHOP. How much playing do you think they did? little to none. They spent most of the time fighting over my lap at the table.

Afterwards we loaded our car again and set out for the drive back home. We stopped for lunch along the way and then arrived mid-afternoon.

Overall it was a pretty fun weekend. We were glad to be back home but thankful for the few days break we got. Every now and then you just need a change of scenery and climate.
