Corinne: Hi Mom, Dad, Con and Tuck! I miss you all so much! Everything is going so well on this end. Every day brings new experiences and we all grow a little more as an individual. I am so excited to come back and share my experiences. Mom and Dad, I can’t thank you guys enough for giving me the opportunity to go on this trip. I have learned so much and this is unlike anything I have ever experienced. I think about you all so much and you’re in my prayers. I love you guys, be home soon! And Carli, I miss you! I hope I get to see you at the airport chica. Love you!
Julie: Hi everyone! Mom and F.J., I hope you made it back safely from D.C.! Grandma and Grandpa, I hope you are both feeling well. Hopefully, Stella, Jim, and Jana get there safely tomorrow! This experience is beyond amazing. I’m so grateful for the opportunity. I have learned so much from this trip about the world we live in, and how I want to change it for the future. I thank all of my positive influences for helping to shape me as individual. And Erin, I need you to sing Soft Kitty. Figure it out, Chica. Much love!
Bailee: Today I realized how hard it is going to be to say goodbye come Thursday morning and travel to Esquias, and then an even bigger challenge to completely say goodbye to Honduras all together. These friendships here are probably the most pure friendships any of us have ever had. The people here live such a simple life and I love it. Everything seems to move a lot slower over here, the complete opposite of the United States and I am definitely getting used to it. Today I taught two 15 year olds how to say certain animal names in English such as pig, horse, puppy, owl, goat, etc. And I now realize teaching is the best way to give. It gave me such an amazing feeling. Hope all is well back home. Love and miss everyone. P.s to anyone that knows how hard it is to wake me up in the morning, you will be happy to know that the roosters do in fact, wake even ME up. Yeah, it’s great.
Katie: I don't know how to begin to explain the last days here! Sorry I haven't been blogging, the internet is terrible here! Every time I try it goes out!! But everything is great! It is such an emotional roller coaster but the feelings that stand out the most are hope, faith, and friendships. The people here are unbelievable- they are becoming apart of all of us. It is amazing how universal body language and religion is in the world. It is going to be so hard to say goodbye!! Can't wait to tell all about my experiences and the people here however, I'm sure it will be hard to put into words. Love you all and see you soon!! To my little hermanos- "It's so much to HANDLE" :) Miss you! P.S. I have so many awesome surprises!!
Katelyn: I haven't been blogging either like Katie. It seems like there is so much to do and not enough time to do it! We all had so much fun today teaching the school kids English and doing crafts with them. We are already sad about leaving this place on Thursday. There are so many stories to share; too many to write down! Can't wait to share all of them with you when we return! Love to everyone back home.
