I Made It!

I am here!!! Made it to Honduras around 8 45, and they were waiting on me! Rebeca is not a bad sight to see after being exhausted from a day of waiting and traveling :) I thought there may be a warming up period, but she ran right to me! And of course I brought some Great American Cookies from the States so that really did her in :) Jennifer and Osmany are great, so good to see them as well! Last night we stayed in San Pedro Sula in a very nice hotel with a pool and everything! Too bad we didnt get to enjoy it! We checked out before lunch and went to "Diunsa", kind of like a Wal-Mart, and ate lunch at Pizza Hut.

San Pedro Sula is HOT, almost unbearable! The air is thick and it is so muggy! The truck had no air even after trying to fix it, so the 2 hour ride to Sigutepeque was an interesting one. Sweet Rebeca slept on me most of the way, she sweated so much.. well we both did! I wish I had a picture to share with you from that ride home, it was a sight for sore eyes! Amazingly enough, the longer we rode, the cooler it became! I LOVE SIGUATEPEQUE! We are higher in the mountains so it makes the weather much more bearable. Don't get me wrong, it is still hot but this is a hot I can handle!

Max and Princess greeted us at the gate as we drove in! Max is much more calm, praise the Lord! I have not had my ankles bitten one time :) HAHA We unloaded everything and headed to the grocery store, always a fun adventure! There we ate supper and shopped for a while. Rebeca and I attempted a shower tonight but that turned out to be disasterous! She ended up with soap in her eyes, we had water all over the floor and YES you guessed it.. she busted her behind on the wet floor! Jennifer had to come in and I had to hold the screaming child to get the soap out of her hair. Bathing has never been a successful process for Rebeca and I, every time we attempt to do it together it never turns out right! AHH good times!

I have an appointment tomorrow at 7 am with a Doctor from the hospital. Please pray that everything goes well, as I am sure that it will. They are giving me a schedule and everything! Jessica Young, I am already ready for you to get here! So is Rebeca :) We have been talking about you!

Back by popular demand... the Spanish word/phrase of the day is:

HACE CALOR : It's hot!

Whew! what an interesting start to your summer...the excitement is starting already! I'm so glad to hear that your reunion with Jennifer, Osmany, & Rebeca has been great so far! And maybe by the end of the summer, showers with Rebeca will be a piece of cake ;) I'm praying for your visit with the Doctor tomorrow...oh the things you will see & do! I can't wait to hear! LOVE you!
