This has been the busiest week I have had in a long time. About a week and a half ago, Adam and I left Texas and headed for Alpine, CA. We drove all day Wednesday, all day Thursday, and most of the day on Friday - in those 3 days we brushed off the blood, sweat, and tears of the last 8 or 9 months. So far, we are loving California. 1. We have found that in this area, people are very genuine and their honesty is refreshing. 2. The weather is absolutely unbelievable. Warm, but not hot. The other day it was 90 degrees, but Adam and I were neither one hot...I could have sat outside all day(we are going to buy a hammock for our backyard). Next Wednesday night, we are having a pool party instead of Youth Service and it is only April. 3. We already love our students. Last night in Service we had an Air band competition and everyone participated! It was a blast, I think a love affair has already begun between us and them.
All of this to say, things are going very well. We are almost completely moved in to our lovely apartment and are getting settled in nicely. I miss all of you. Please stay in touch!
