We were also blessed to move into an apartment just a couple of minutes away from the school. The girls love coming home early and not having to be at school so early. We are pretty much settled except for TWO very important things...our washing machine has not been working since we moved into the apartment (2 weeks ago) and the HOT water has not been working....so we ask that you pray for these simple, but oh so important things to get fixed.
We have made new friends with the new teachers that came in this year. They are all AWESOME, hard working people! Pray for their transition her to Rio.
Thought I would share some pictures of our happenings....
Our first weekend back to Rio, we went on a hike in Copacabana. We actually went to the Copacabana Fort. It was beautiful!
Along the way, Kierra LOVED taking pictures of the cute little monkeys.
Beautiful views from the fort.
New teachers and old... :)
Raegan lost her FIRST tooth!!! She wouldn't let Jon pull it, but she let one of the cleaning ladies at our school pull it! :)
First day of school! Kierra - 7th Grade, Raegan - 2nd Grade
My 5th Grade class! They are a silly bunch! :)
