Greetings all- Sara here. The last few weeks have been fairly normal for us down here in sudamerica. We have been working and spending time with friends.
Last weekend, I celebrated my 28th birthday with parties, cakes and lots of chocolate. First thing in the morning my wonderful friends and carpool buddies, Maida and Marita, picked me up with a car full of celebration- they had sweet treats with candles, presents and lots of singing. It was a great way to start the day.

After the meeting, I knew something fishy was going on in my classroom since all the lights were off and the children were screaming- it was a surprise party! The kids completely organized the party themselves with costumes, snacks, decorations, music, the works. The parents told me that the kids didn't want their help and that they wanted to do everything for the party themselves. They did an amazing job with everything and really made me feel special. Though 27 8-year olds hyped up on cake, chips and soda made for an interesting rest of the day. They seemed surprised when they starting getting headaches and tummyaches- lesson learned, maybe.
