Oops sorry if I posted twice. I had a poor connection.

I was saying a great idea. I can't remember what I was doing 5 days ago much less 5 years.

Hey I've been offline for a while while my computer gets help! I didn't know if you gave up on me answering your question on my blog, so I thought I would just tell you here.

We are interning and learning Spanish in Tijuana right now. We are heading out to Mexico City in October. What area of Mexico City are your husband's relatives in? You can answer on my blog if you like! Believe it or not, Ryan has relatives there to that he has never met before. His dad is from Mexico. We also have relatives right here in TJ!

God bless!

Two of my children were born in Venezuela and I wanted them to learn their national anthem. I also taught it to the indian children in their school.

Teresa said... what was I doing yesterday? Beats me, hehehe.

Brenda said...

I love this post. When you come to Paraguay we will have to sneak away now and then for coffee and chocolate ;)

Gayle said...

"Explaining to your daughter why she can't ice skate in the jungle!" ROTFALMBO! You are a card... or... since that's probably true, your daughter is a card. :)

I swiped the quiz but gave you credit. You are a courageous lady.


gecko said...

I'm impressed you can remember that far back! They were still fun days, and we were free to do many things back then. Do you take a supply of chocolate with you when you go into the jungle??

Janie said...

Nylons in South America have to be a torture device. But I can't believe you ever really wore frosty blue eye shadow!!!! (I think I had some way back then...but surely I never wore it)
