May cheer!

May is here and we want to share some cheer! We are expecting our new addition to the family the beginning of December! We are so happy for this pregnancy.

Its rainy season and there has been lots of thunder. Our dogs are always outside except when there is thunder and they are inside on the kitchen floor.

People are like garbage trucks. They carry frustrations, disappointments and anger. Soon it gets all piled up and people feel like they need to dump it on someone else. Don't take it personally. Don't let their garbage get on you or let it fall on others. Learn to smile and let it roll off you. Be like a duck in the water and let the water just roll off you back. Let the garbage, words and actions just roll off your back.  Shake it off. Smile, Love those who treat you right. Pray for those who don't. Life is 10% what you make of it. 90% of how you take it. Stay positive. 

This week Cornelio and I took the government’s highest certification test. The test involved going into a room and two teachers role played as students. I was given a subject to teach and had 40 min to write a lesson plan and then had to present the lesson and teach for 30 minutes. To pass one has to score at least 90% It was the biggest professional challenge I have ever had. Lots of interaction and feedback. Praising God we both passed the test and the government has certified us to teach all levels using their material and we can now offer this at our school. In the future some students can get a government scholarship to take classes. This is a huge step for the school and we are so excited. Please pray for all the upcoming paper work and upgrading of the school to meet codes and requirements.

Cornelio, Cailene and Mekhi
