An Update From Cindy & Her Family!

Buenes Dias,
Como estan?  We trust you’re all doing well.   We are settling into a more normal life that now includes furniture and belongings.  We feel so richly blessed to be allowed to enjoy these luxuries and remind ourselves often not to simply take them for granted.
Please excuse us for being out of touch for the past two or so weeks.  Our computer decided to take a vacation and we had to take it in for overhaulin’.   Sorry for any emails that were redundant or have gone unanswered.  It was quite a mess and is taking a while to get straightened out, to put it mildly.
We had a very nice visit last month from Michael’s parents.  They came for two weeks and got to see firsthand what life in Honduras is really like.  Alex and Natasha really enjoyed their time with Grandma and Grandpa and really miss them now.  One of the fun things Alex got to do for the first time here was play golf again.  Wow, was he excited!   Natasha got to play with Grandma every morning, while I was teaching English at the school.  She loved the extra attention.  The day Michael and Natasha drove to San Pedro Sula to pick them up at the airport, there was a teachers’ strike.  (I forgot to get in on the fun!)  They had blocked off a bridge that they needed to cross.  These strikes can go on for most of the day, so Michael set off trying to find another way across the river.  Some guys helped them find a way to forge through the river and then they had to drive through some fields to get back onto the main road again.  With lots of help from the locals and tearing off part of the front bumper, they were back on their way to the airport. 
Last weekend was very special for us.  We were able to spend the weekend back on the island of Utila !  A friend of ours there was nice enough to let us stay in her house while she was away.  We got to revisit some of our favorite spots and snorkel again on the beautiful reef.  It was a much needed time to relax and have some down time together as a family.  There are always so many kids around, that there are times we don’t give our own two children the attention they need.  This was an “undivided attention” kind of a trip for both of them and was just what the doctor ordered.  God knew and provided and we thank Him immensely.  
We wish all you mothers a very blessed Mother’s Day!
 
With all our love,
 
Michael, Cindy, Alexander and Natasha
