3rd of 3 terms has started!
The boys arrived back at the end of April, and jumped into their last term of 7th grade! “Long” rainy season and rugby have also started, meaning lots of mud, colder weather (upper 50s/60s), swarms of flying ants, sore muscles, ibuprofen, and runny noses.
1st Rugby game and we were blessed with no rain that day!
Dave was able to build the boys a carpet ball table during vacation (to help distract them from video games- shhhh don’t tell them) 😉 Many tournaments have already happened with the champion getting to wear the coveted red wristband (that is probably getting sweaty and stinky).
We have already had 2 birthday parties where burritos, tacos, brownies, and icecream were the requested foods. One of the boys parents were able to come for his birthday so the boys were all able to celebrate his 13th birthday, mustache style!
Boys are getting to dissect frogs in science class and their teacher let me sneak in to take pictures. The girls seemed fine with the boys doing the surgery 🙂
Please pray for:
This term we have 12 instead of 13 boys with one being gone on home assignment/furlough for just this term. Please pray for his adjustment back to Canada.
Pray for our boys’ health- student health has been hit with kids with colds.
Pray for the boys’ safety as they play rugby- where there is lots of tackling but no padding involved!
