Update from Sunny, Hot, Buggy Hoduras

Well, the title pretty much says it all ~ the bugs LOVE our bug repellent...they lick it off of us and commence to biting.  Got some hydrocortisone and all is a little better.

We went to a new church this morning for VBS and had 95 children!  That's awesome! All were attentive, participated, very polite and had lots of fun.  This afternoon we went to a Boys Home right outside of town.  These guys are in this home by court order ~ could be neglectful parents, or they could have been homeless, or some kind of run in with the law.  We had 75 boys & the staff at the home.  ALL ages, 7 or 8 to 17 or 18.  They all listened, enjoyed the craft & loved the candy we brought. 

In between the 2 we had a couple of free hours in town ~ Greg, Amy and I hit the streets...we shopped at the fabric store, found a great little sewing/craft notions store and hit a few others.  The sewing notions store had great prices on sewing machine needles, lace and beads.  I got 3 packs of needles, 7 yards of lace and 2 long strings of beads + individual beads for $6.  I had figured out what I wanted fabricwise on our first trip into the store, so todays expedition was relatively easy.  I got about 14 yards of fabric for $40.  All the fabric is 60 inches wide ~ one of them is 92 inches wide!  And I've got some $$ left, so I may go back there too! 

Here are some pictures!

Greg found a "Bob Ross" happy tree in Honduras!

Our frosty treat indulgence only came in Vanilla ~ they were out of chocolate!

And what is happening at home while we are here ~~~~~ its SNOWING in Mississippi.....Amy is a bit peeved that she is missing that fun!  Angel is saving Amy a Ziploc bag full of snow, so she can at least see it in person!
