Last week found us with twenty-one girls heading out to the island for a three day retreat. This was a special group with about ten young ladies from one school of our little hometown. These ten along with about that many from another nearby town were to participate in our first ever ESL event on the island. Stories were told in half English and half Portuguese. Choruses were taught and sung in English. Counselors were English speakers from the States. All in all it seemed to go well.
Sadly, I've been super busy all month getting ready for this retreat and the restart of my ESL classes this week, and now I have the start of homeschooling looming in the near future. Will try to post more retreat photos and a little story later this week!
