Final Day

This will be our final post from Guatemala. We had a great day in Antigua today. We left our hotel in Santiago about 9 this morning. The streets by the hotel were about a bus and a quarter wide, so it took a little maneuvering to get through town, but we were soon on our way around the lake. It was a bright sunny day so we had some fabulous panoramas across the lake and surrounding volcanos.

In Antigua the students had fun shopping in the market and practing their Spanish and bargaining skills. At the end of the day we headed into Guatemala City to the Hotel Pan American for dinner and early bedtime. Its 9:30 now and everyone is in their rooms and hopefully getting to sleep, although a few are still working on getting everything fit back into their bag...

Tomorrow we are up at 3:30am in order to get to the airport departure of 6:30. Sound familiar? We will have some time in Houston to get reaquainted with bathrooms where you can flush the paper and all our favorite fast foods. The first group is scheduled to depart from Houston at 1:40 and arrive in Minneapolis at 4:29 (Continental 2950). The second group is scheduled to leave Houston at 3:40 and arrive in Minneapolis at 6:32 (Continental 2001). Please check with the airline to confirm arrival times. The kids will be excited to see you when they come down into the baggage area at the aiport.

Thanks again for all your support! See you soon!

Due to the travel day we only had a few minutes to take popsts from the students so here is al we have:

Hey Mom, Dad, family and friends,
Sorry I haven’t written on the blog in a while it is a daily struggle to read the blogs posted from you, let alone fight for a time to write my own response to what I read. Dad- I’m really glad you liked our father’s day present and thank you for praying. Mom- I got your message and I’m a little concerned as to what your “adventure” is…just kidding. I can’t wait to hear more. R & R is going really well! The resort is really nice! Unfortunately, we are all a little gassy so it smells more than it would were we all feeling the way we should. I can’t wait to see you soon. I love you all and thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.

Hey Mom, Dad, Jess, family and friends,
Thanks for all of the blogs…It’s so nice to hear from you guys! I can’t wait to see you when I get back tomorrow! Wednesday was our last service day, so we went to a really nice hotel at Lake Atitlan for rest and relaxation. It is so beautiful here! Too bad we have to leave soon…I’ve bought some things already…they are really cool! Well thanks for all of your prayers! I can’t wait to see you soon!
