we haven’t gotten to spend time with my brother and his family in years. fortunately, we hadn’t booked our flight home from florida and figured we might as well spend a few days there at the end of our trip and hang out with family. so much fun. so much food. and was so great catching up and seeing the cousins hanging out and having a great time together. watching the rocket launch and then seeing it come back was pretty awesome, along with looking for large tortoises at night who were coming up on the beach as a test run to lay their eggs the following week. it was a perfect ending to our trip.
end of may. 2017
between the sketch wifi in the apartment, beach and lobby, i gave up the daily journal of activities we did. overall, teaching at the local school was really hard, but a great experience. getting in with the people of guatemala through our church was such a great experience. having family home evening, going to church, and hearing the testimonies of these great pioneers was so humbling. the beaches were stunning. being able to use all the resort had to offer, since we were in the apartments, was phenomenal. we are so grateful for the experience, and hope our children always remember these experiences.
