We Leave in 3 Days!

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

We leave on Friday for Nicaragua! yyaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh. I'm so pickin' excited! Here's a link to our Team Blog.
We're in the process of putting up our prayer requests. I don't think we'll have the opportunity to blog while we're down there, but we definitely will if we get online somewhere...just because it will be fun to reach our friends from there :-)
But we'll definitely post pictures and stories when we get back.

Ms. Peterson

Tonight the kids had their end of the year talent show and I was helping backstage. I was impressed with how well these sweet young kids had done putting together their acts and said so to Ms. Peterson.
She turned to me nodding and smiled.
"Kids always rise," she said. "It's just a matter of whether we can rise with them, but they'll always rise."
I thought it a great quote, and I thought her a great teacher for believing those words.

It's been a great year Highland. Thank you Highland teachers, staff, and students. You are a treasure to me.
