Back to school

This past weekend, we attended a small house church across the bay and met Jose. Jose is an first grade teacher and very enthusiastic about what he does. When a child enters the school system here, most of them don't speak Portuguese, but once they get into first grade, everything is done in that language.

Since we've been looking for a language teacher so we can continue learning Portuguese, Jose seemed to be a perfect fit. He will be coming to our house four days a week at seven thirty in the morning for an hour of lessons. Scott studies with him two days, and I study with the kids and Emily the other two days. Today was our first day and I think it's going to work well.

Update on my mom: We've been calling my mom every day and she seems to be doing well and is good spirits. Tomorrow she meets with the surgeon to see how she is progressing and how long she will need to stay where she is. The facility is wonderful with lots of physical therapy and an atmosphere my mother likes.

Thanks so much for your prayers, emails, and calls!
