Britney Spears and Confirmation (unrelated)

Did you guys know Britney Spears was committed?

I did, because I got a fantastic package today from my mom with the February 18th issue of People Magazine.Yesssssss!I also got hair clips AND mini packs of chips ahoy AND Valentines Day cards AND Mucinex (I was desperate for this because my chesty cough has been very unproductive, if you want to know) AND dove chocolate and little Crystal Light water bottle packets.It was a good day.

Before the actual Confirmation and confirmation partying (for those only tuned in to see Teachers, Preists and confirmation candidates gone wild) took place, we had to decorate the church.

Parties!

We were invited to a bunch of confirmation parties in the village, and made it to about 6. I ate 4 dinners, and like, 10 pieces of cake (I took them for the team, okay? It would have been rude to not accept :)

Week six, I heart you

Week 6

I can’t believe I’ve been here for 6 weeks!

And I can’t believe I forgot to tell you that we had a tremor this week. I think it was Monday or Tuesday morning. I got up because i felt my bed shaking, and (funny line of logic here, beware) I thought someone was ironing outside my room, that the ironing board was bumping the wall, and the wall was shaking the table, and the table was shaking my bed. But when I looked, no one was ironing, and the ironing table was about 3 feet from the wall…

Later I learned it was a tremor. That made more sense than an animated ironing board, but, you know, I was sleeeeeeping.

Here are some pics of classes this week.Every morning the kids line up and sing the Belize National anthem while raising the Belize flag.Then they do morning prayers together and begin class.I can almost sing the anthem myself…

Oh, and PS: My phone card didn’t work. I guess on double minute days, everyone tries to call and the network gets jammed :( So much for my $20 worth of happy phone time.
