Hmm... it´s been a long time. Yeah for not having much internet access.
It´s a holiday again tomorrow, so I have today off also -- this time a long weekend. I got to sleep in a bit this morning, and have been chilling around Isaac and Miriam´s house all day today. One would think I would be all caught up on emails and such, but it´s amazing how time flies.
I was, however, able to put some more pictures up, so check those out. I added a few more of Segovia, and there are even some more recent ones of the girls I live with and my living arrangements. We are still living with Grandma far away, but should be moving in the next week or so (for real this time!), so that will be nice.
All continues to go well, although I am currently a bit congested. The weather is gorgeous here, but I do miss the beautiful Fall setting of Greenville and Charlotte (which are practically the country, compared to the city of Madrid).
It's Halloween today, but it's not celebrated much around here (it's becoming more well known as the years go on, but trick-or-treating is still not common). We did do some crafts with the kids last week, cutting out bats and singing songs about skeletons that lose fingers. It's amazing how stuff like that can be educational -- learning body vocabulary and counting backwards. Haha. The joys of being 6 years old, when learning how to count 10-8-6-4-2-0 in English is practically the hardest thing you do all week!
Anyway, instead of trick-or-treating, I think we're gonna go see The Legend of Zorro, since it came out this weekend. My sister saw it already and said it was good.
Thanks for those of you who have sent me emails with updates from home. Makes me feel at least somewhat connected to the Anglo-speaking world.
Soli Deo Gloria...
