A Year Has Gone By

It is hard to believe that a year ago today I arrived in my new home of Guatemala. I am so glad I made the choice to come here.

I remember some things very clearly. I remember how tired I was when I arrived after not sleeping for over 24 hours. I remember coming through the doors at the airport and hearing my name called. There were so many people there to welcome us. It was overwhelming but also so heart warming. I remember the beauty of the campus.

Our trip to Antigua on the Saturday was wonderful. It was a terrific idea to have a Scavenger Hunt and helped establish relationships. We were treated so well. It was wonderful to be treated with such kindness and respect.

I remember all of us going to Walmart on Sunday accompanied by members of the admin. The support was great. I remember loading all of our shopping including tv's, microwaves, furniture and tons of hangers into the back of the yellow school bus. It was so funny to watch. I bought a microwave, fan and a dehumidifier plus a ton of other things.

The pre service sessions were varied but also full out and I was tired still. It was strange not having a classroom to decorate but I was thankful and did not miss it at all. It was nice to have a small office.

So the first year is over, summer vacation is almost over and on Tuesday I return to start another exciting adventure. I am glad the first year is over.
