Armed and ready!

This girl has more mousetraps and is ready for some more friends! I came home from an ice cream dinner with Erin and found two mice hanging out on my stovetop. Erin let me borrow some glue traps until I get back to the store! Real friends share mousetraps!!! Ha

Anyway, this weekend was pretty great. Both Friday and Saturday night we had movie night with the kids. We watched both "Letters to God" and "Ramona and Beezus". Loved them both! Definitely recommend "Letters to God". It is based on a true story about a young boy battling cancer and letters that he puts in his mailbox addressed to God. These letters are his prayers. It was interesting watching movies with the kids because they were so loud moving chairs, walking around, etc but it didn't phase them because the closed captions were obviously there way to hear it.

Yesterday was very hot! We played on the playground for a bit with some rabbits that the kids just got as pets. I had a pretty bad headache so I stayed in and tried to read and hydrate myself to get rid of it.

Today, I went to JDV (Jamaica Deaf Village) for church. It was nice to get off campus and see that part of the ministry here on the island. They sang some songs that I had learned how to sign this summer, so that was nice. I was able to get in front of the church and introduce myself in sign which felt good. My sign is definitely improving everyday! The sermon was definitely god for me to here. It was about time and living for today and not yesterday or tomorrow!

Erin and I will probably go to Kingston next Saturday for the day to visit my friend from home, Blake, and his wife, Tashi. It will be nice to spend some time wit Erin off campus and see Blake and his new wife! Also, Erin and I discussed having a beach day sometime while I am here up in Montego Bay (about two and a half hours away). While we are in Kingston and Montego Bay, we will visit the other CCCD campuses.

Our evening wrapped up with an ice cream dinner date! Thanks Erin for getting me off campus!

I am really sorry, but I will not be able to post pictures on my blog. I know that it is boring to look at a blog without pictures, so for those of you following my life in Jamaica- THANKS!

  2. I am so happy that you had a good weekend! I don't know how you have learned to handle mice sitting on your stove...I would scream for help. Also happy that signing is getting easier.You have been blessed with a wonderful adventure...this is a time in your life you will tell your children and grandchildren about, so enjoy every minute, make some wonderful memories, give it your all, so you won't miss an opportunity to give or receive a blessing,a smile, a laugh,or some love! You are missed and covered in prayers, Mom
