I hate to break my promises, but you might not be seeing the pictures just yet. I've been sitting at my computer for the last 20 minutes trying to upload some pictures, but it seems to have gotten stuck on 16%. Do not fret though, I'll keep trying.

In the meantime an update for what happened today. We awoke this morning and had a delicious breakfast at Pops (for all you frederictonians, it basically sums up to a Belize version of the Cabin on the Woodstock road). We then headed out to St Hilda's for our first full day at the school. After setting up the Puppet theatre, We traveled from class to class in 2 groups, teaching the basics of puppeting to the children. We had a amazing lunch (if you have noticed...good food is a recurring trend here), which was followed by, what could only be described as the most chaotic tickle flight known to man. To sum up, 80% of the children attacked us in a huge swarm of tickling. While this sounds rather foolish, it was the greatest thing that has happened so far. the connections that were made between the children and our team was so heart warming. From that point on, the children were 100% comfortable around us, none showing any shyness at all. I thoroughly look forward to going back tomorrow.

We then spent the afternoon doing the Jonah Show for each of the classes. We were tuckered out by the time the bus rolled in to pick us up at 330, but I don't think any of us would have traded today for a chance to sleep in and relax. Since coming back from the school, a few have gone shopping, and then got ready to go eat. I'm currently sitting in our supper destination, Flavas. Once we're done here we'll be heading back to the hotel where Bev and I will be doing our bible study/devotional time on 2 Corinthians 12; 1-10.

anyway, time for supper, keep an eye out for the pictures....they'll get up eventually.
