Not Like the Ones Mom Used to Make

Fridays are especially busy because by the end of the day, I need to have completed a form with the topic and homework assignment for each class for each day for the following week. If you ask my old boss, you’ll find that doing lesson plans on time is not exactly my strong point.

I tried to get to school a little earlier than my usual 6:30 arrival, and in my rush out the door forgot to bring anything to eat during my morning break. Another volunteer was kind enough to bring me a take-out lunch from the girls’ home, where we get our meals. I finally had a chance to eat towards the end of the day when my 8th grade English class didn’t think it a big deal if I ate while they worked on some grammar exercises. I opened my lunch to find rice and beans and a whole fried fish, head included. A little different from the peanut butter sandwich I had left at home, but actually a lot more delicious.

It looks like your getting into the swing of things. Thanks for the picture, fond memories already.
Sorry I missed your sendoff on the 15th. Know that we miss you, and are somewhat envious of your location. WoW, the ocean looks wonderful.
Minnesota va a ser un poco peor porque se han ido. Honduras será tanto mejor becaues usted está allí. Paz.
