We've had a great couple of days. We started three studies yesterday, and they all seem really interested. It's fun to study in Spanglish too. One of the studies is with a newly married couple, he speaks English but she doesn't, so we read alternating paragraphs in Spanish and English.

Last night we went to a kindergarten graduation for a girl in our hall. It was the cutest thing ever. All the preschoolers were costumed as animals from The Lion King, with one Tigger thrown in there, and they did a dance up the aisle, then the kindergarteners sang and danced to "I Just Can't Wait To Be King." Man, if I had as much energy as a six year old... They take school very serious here. Even for the pre-graders, they had several diplomas and awards and medals, all very official of course.

Tonight we went to dinner with our neighbors. It was great to hear their experiences. They have been to about 11 international conventions, and over 35 countries. They even went to the first international convention is Russia, back in the 90s. I would love to be able to do as much as they have someday.

Tomorrow we are going to the beach with some friends in the hall. So excited! We are renting a bus to take us about half an hour away, to a place called Helen's. I'm not really sure why it's called that, and it isn't on Google Maps, but I hear there is a great beach, and that's the important thing.

We only have 2.5 months left here, the time has gone by so fast. I wish we could stay longer; I really want to go to the District Convention in El Salvador. But we plan to come back, so there's always Convention next year.

Hope to have pictures and experiences to share soon!
