Yeah and Yuck Ducks......... again.

Yesterday was graduation at our language school. This, of course brings up Yeah feelings of being done with our second trimester (and finishing well) but it also means that several new friends are moving on to the countries where they have been called to serve. Yuck feelings!

My friend, Heather, who left for Honduras today.

My buddy, Abraham. He left with his mom, dad and baby sister today for the United States. He will be going to Ecuador also in the next few months - so we hope to have a playdate!

The Spanish language institute has also been affected by the economy and the number of students graduating is disproportionately large compared to the number of new students beginning in 2 weeks. Because of this, 6 teachers were laid off yesterday, This is 1/3 of the teaching staff! Of the 6 teachers I had 3 of them just this trimester so more Yuck feelings!
My grammar class this past trimester - 2 members of this group left today and our teacher was laid off. ;(

Yeah! We found a chiropractor that has been able to help (and his office happens to be next to a little ice cream shop that makes homemade icecream!!!!)

Last night we said good-bye to some friends who left for Mexico this morning. Their kids became the best friends of our kids over the past 8 months. More Yuck! Yeah for Skype dates though!
Our friends, the Lakatos family - on their way to Mexico.

Walking through life is such a wonderful gift from our awesome God, and the wonder continues as we find each other in the journey, a brother, a sister, a comfort, a company, but above all, the great promise that He shall be with us till the end of age. Blessings to you, Eric and Renee, and your wonderful family.
