Christmas Time!

December 18, 2009 - Buenaventura, Colombia

 School is out for the year (2009)!  There were mixed feelings as I said goodbye to the kids.  The last two weeks with them has been very hard as they have been anticipating today.  They have been very restless and found it hard to do any activity that needed them to apply themselves to a chair.  I can not count how many times I have asked kids to stop throwing stones and mangos at each other (I know, in Canada this time of year we would be asking them to not throw snow balls). 

I am excited to be going home tomorrow and seeing my family and friends.  It’s been almost 5 months!  It still does not feel much like Christmas despite the zillion Christmas lights and the carolers in the mall.  I think it's the 30 degree weather that is throwing me off. 

Well just a quick note.  I am off to our staff part lunch and then we will have some salsa dancing!  Ah Colombia!

Have a Merry Christmas and a good time with your family and friends!
