There has been much to do around DOFO these last few weeks. January is almost gone and I can't believe it has gone so quickly! A few highlights...
** Ana's Quinceñera - All of our girls get a party for their 15th birthday, as is the Mexican tradition. The dress, the cake, the church service, the whole nine yards. I got to take her to a few of the dress fittings, so it was cool to be able to watch her enjoy the entire process! Que Bonita!
Ana with her escort, Gerardo:
Ana and I:
** I was able to sneak away for a few days and take a quick vacay in the OC, which was nice. It was great to see my besties.
Bonfire (of course):
At the movies with licorice straws:
Lunch with Andie (yay! she's back!):
** Andrew was finally able to come down for a visit and completely funded and planted the start of our new orchard(Thank you!) (I have been praying for an orchard since i got here!) It is my new favorite place, and I am in the process of planting vegetables there as well!!
The 8 baby trees (Oranges, limes, lemons and mangoes):
Besides that, it's just been LOTS of visiting groups, multiple projects, lots to coordinate. It's hard work, but it's a lot of fun. And with the Spring Break coming up, we're just getting started. :)
Oh - And my fave part - just hanging out with the niños!
Two of my faves, Marcos & Samy:
