Nicaragua!


During my freak-out session on my birthday post, you might remember me saying that I was going to Nicaragua for a week. Well, the time has come! Today, I'll be driving four hours with my group to Orlando, where we'll spend the night. Then at an ungodly hour in the morning, we'll be meeting at the airport with other groups to fly to Nicaragua. We'll actually be staying in the capital, Managua. (And I really have a feeling I won't be able to pronounce anything.) 

We can have our phones to take pictures, but I probably won't be able to update or tweet (I haven't been doing a good job of that in America either, sooo). We'll be doing projects and VBS for the kiddos during the week THEN our free day is Saturday. The agenda: zip-lining, visiting a volcano, and shopping (aka where I spend a fortune on souvenirs for my six-person family). 

Ultimately, I'm hoping for safe travels, a great time, and to make an impact and to not push my traveling companions down the volcano


I get back the following Monday (8/11) and while I may be exhausted, Top Ten Tuesday WILL be up thanks to pre-scheduling (okay, I HOPE it'll be up). I do know that I'll be extremely happy to be reunited with my brand, spankin' new laptop...and to talk to ya'll again of course.

  5. THE JEALOUSY IS REAL AND I WANT PICTURES. I hope you're having so much fun, and I'm sure you're making an impact - just try to keep that impact positive by not pushing anyone down a volcano. :)

  9. Have a great time! And don't worry about pronunciation. Just take a box of cookies to VBS. You will quickly start understanding the children's Spanish. One phrase that is: "Una más!" ;)

  10. I've loved seeing your pics on Instagram! I hope you have a wonderful time but that you're safely back home now and resting. My BIL just got back from a mission trip to Haiti. But he didn't do anything cool like ziplining or pushing people into volcanoes...er, I mean, VISITING volcanoes, lol.
