It’s been a week, they go by so quickly now. I don’t think I ever shared our schedule with you all. Here goes:
5:35 Alarm goes off
5:40 I get in the shower
6:15 Get everyone else up, if they haven’t already woken up and eat breakfast
7:05 Out the door to walk to school–about a 7 minute walk
7:15 drop kid’s off at Rayitos del Sol
7:30 Grammar class begins for Brian and I—we’re in the same class(10 all together)
Oscar is our teacher….funny, funny guy
8:25 Stay in Grammar class
9:20 Language class with Elena(she’s my age and getting married in April) –Brian and I are separated–(five in my class and the other five in his from our previous class)
10:10 to 11:15 Break—there’s chapel on Tues and Thurs, we haven’t been yet….maybe someday…..
11:15 Phonetics with Gabriela (same five people in my class)—I just learned last week that she’s the best on the campus, she corrects us all the time—I’m so glad!!!!
12: 05 Go pick up the boys and walk home for lunch
We’ve been going to bed by 9:30pm. It has been such an adjustment, I’m such a night person. This week I finally felt rested during the day, but I would start crashing around 8 pm. I study when the boys nap and study when I have the energy after putting the boys to bed, but I often start to drift when I study. Zeke’s been only waking up once a night and even slept the whole night once or twice this week. That makes a huge difference! We got to sleep in this morning…..to 6:30am! It really was amazing……may I add, that we were in bed at 9:30 last night. No late night movie for us, we were exhausted!
A week ago today, we went on a trip with students from the school to the Doka Coffee Plantation and the Paos Volcanoe. It was so beautiful. It was a rough trip with the boys, at the school at 6:30 and back by 5pm. It was worth it for the pictures. Jil has some details about both places if you’re interested. I loved being able to take so many pictures………loved it. Here’s a few :
Flowers and plants at Doka
The stars at the plantation….and of Starbucks……
Further up the mountain….was this crater filled with rain water.
Our yummy lunch at Freddo Fresas with fresh yummy strawberry drinks
All my kids are cranky I gotta go love on them. I have more to share, hope it won’t take me another week!
