I’ve been in Peru for well over a month now, and the mega event Love Extreme is coming to a close. The short termers are close to leaving. Cohort 3 just got super busy with consolidations of the new converts. They are going to houses and talking with the Peruvians who were at the mega event. That’s the best part in my opinion.
I don’t think that I have blogged about this yet, but we lost one of our own in our Cohort. She couldn’t handle the call and returned stateside. This isn’t an easy call, but no one ever said it was going to be easy. Say what you will, but we’ve been blessed in return. A short termer answered the call and is going to be joining our Cohort July 10th. We’ve been blessed with a replacement, but I will not view her as a replacement. She’s an absolutely new gift to us, and she doesn’t have to fill anyone’s shoes.
So this week most of us are going to be getting back in to the swing of things (o my look at the title!) Language school is going to be starting up on Monday. I’m excited to get back into it. I’ve actually learned more, and gotten better at Spanish in these two weeks without school than I have in school. In school, we would speak Spanish for a couple hours then go and speak English for the rest of the day. Since Trevor moved in, we’re going solo Español in the house. This is going to frustrate me so much but it will improve my Spanish drastically.
Just a short little update, everything is going great. It’s not easy but it’s going well. I’d love to have a bowl of crispix right now, sit in my basement or michaels,
pet stupid, and speak english to everyone I see. But for now, and for 26 more months I will not and that’s just fine. PS that’s Mister Ostrich and he changed my life forever.
