This is what greeted me when I walked out of WalMart the other day. It has rained daily since I arrived.

Back in Monterrey

I arrived back on Sunday and was excited as I drove closer to Back2Back. I had to go around first thing and say 'hi' to all my friends on campus and meet the other teacher, Hope. When I opened my apartment, I was greeted with notes and verses posted everywhere including up the stairs, in the microwave, etc. My church group that came in July had blessed me with these and I loved it! The next thing I did was check my whole apartment for spiders...haha...thankfully, there were no big ones. The rest of my week consisted of unpacking, cleaning my apartment and my classroom and now preparing my classroom and planning for the school year.

Summer in Indiana

I spent about 6 weeks in Indiana in July and August to see friends and family and fundraise. It was a great time of reconnecting and having fun with people!
I went to Camp Adventure the first week as a counselor for my 7th year. It was awesome again!

My parents came in from PA to visit with me.

I spent as much time as I could with my niece, Mia.

About 50 people came to my fundraiser and saw pictures from my year and listened as Heather Merrill and I spoke.

Some of my wonderful friends I got to hang out with!
