Meet Ridley

Call us crazy...but we are officially dog owners. When we got home on Saturday from our trip to the DR I made the mistake of looking in the paper to see if there were any puppies listed. Then, we made the even bigger mistake of going to "look" at the puppies. The next day, Ridley went home with us. We were planning on getting a dog before we moved to the DR to be our guard dog....we just weren't planning on getting him so soon. But, we are loving every minute with him. He is a really good puppy!

Bad Bloggers

We are bad at blogging...sorry! Here are a few brief updates:

1. Last weekend we went on a trip to Lake Atitlan. It is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL place. The lake is an old volcano crater filled with water, and is surrounded by three volcanoes. It was a much needed time to relax, read, and soak up some rays.

2. Tomorrow is our last day of school. It is hard to believe that are finished with our nine weeks of class. We loved our school, and grew really close to our teachers Merle and Elena.

3. We are leaving after school tomorrow to go on a road trip with the Breuls. We will be going to Tikal (the big Mayan ruins in Northern Guatemala), and then spending a few days hanging out on the Rio Dulce....check out our hotel. We will be celebrating Elliott's big 30th birthday (it's on May 8th...make sure you wish him a happy birthday!!).

4. We leave Guatemala on May 10th to go to the DR to look for a car and get things set up for our arrival in July. Please pray for this time...that God would guide and direct us in all of our decisions.
