The Adventure Begins...
As I’m writing this I’m sitting in my living room in Guatemala City overlooking beautiful mountains and volcanos…somebody pinch me! I can’t believe this is my life right now. It has been just over a week since Neva and I arrived to Guatemala to join Joe and Adilia on our year adventure and what a busy week it has been.
School Started last week and Neva has been absolutely loving every second of it. Being here her Spanish has really taken off and her aunt Rebecca (also English teacher at the school) says she even answers questions asked in English in Spanish. Adilia is still adjusting to going to school every day. Drop off and pick up right now involve lots of tears; but, each day seems to get a little bit better.
Having the opportunity to decorate a space again has been so much fun and our apartment feels more like home every day. We were so busy running errands last week that it still didn’t feel real. This week though I feel like we are all getting into our routine and settling into a groove as a family. The best part about this, my creative energy is back and I’m dying to get back behind the camera!
Tomorrow we head out on our first adventure as a family outside the city and we can’t wait to share the journey with you.
