Happy 13th Birthday, Angel Christi

I'm so blessed to have had this trip come up at this time. I vividly remember teaching last year on Christi's birthday; it was so hard. This year has been nice to be on a different time zone, with some of my favorite colleagues and some delightful (and mature and responsible) BGSU students. This trip to Italy has been a great distraction as I'm certain if I were home I'd be dwelling on the fact that today would have been Christi's 13th birthday and I wonder how we would have celebrated it. (Picture: "The Falcon's Finest: Dr. Nancy, Dr. Angela & Dr. Susan" hee hee!)

We toured more schools today and I particularly enjoyed engaging this group of fifth grade girls in English conversation. They seemed very excited to try speaking English to someone from America and they wrote letters to Shayla.

I hope Shayne is doing ok at home. (He did send me an email telling me he had everything under control, or perhaps out of control, he wasn't really sure. He did miss a 4H meeting since I didn't remind him.) I'm sure he's fine! And Shayla can hold her own - most of the time. I'm sure today has been rough for Shayne.

Happy Birthday, sweetpea! I'm certain you are having a grand celebration with the Lord! ENJOY!

Many prayers lifted up for the Thomas Team yesterday.
Angela, you look wonderful in these photos - beautiful dress/shrug.
It looks like quite a trip; what an opportunity.
