Heidi and I went for a hike together the other day, up the hill into the jungle behind where we live.  So nice that the kids are old enough to leave at home alone now.  Also, CPS can’t get us down here…

Giant Wasp versus Tarantula, who do you think won?  This is like a Wildkrat or David Attenborough documentary…

The Hotz family, on their family vehicle, after worship night. There’s room for one more guys, maybe it’s time to get preggo again…

Last night some of the families on the hill got together to light paper chinese lanterns and send them into the sky.  The Alexanders found room in their luggage on their last trip back from the states to bring down a dozen of them.  They nestled the flammable devices in their carry-on luggage, right next to some fertilizer, alarm clocks, wire spools, and blocks of sculpting clay.  They said customs was a breeze…

Oddly enough, several UFO sitings were reported from the small Honduran village of Balfate the night of April 24th, 2016.  Authorities are investigating…

This is will with Mr. Mike, starting some work at the Bodega (the shop). That’s a welding mask he has on. Some of the young men spend afternoons at the Bodega, learning various skills, from welding, to using power tools, to just plain good work ethic.

During the Teeth-Brushing presentation, some of the kids found it a little less than enthralling. Interestingly, this young man was seen in the dental clinic later that day to have 7 teeth pulled (totally a joke, not true…)

Pam (who is also known as Zukie, the wife of my father, the mother of my stepbrothers, and finally she is my stepmother— Stepmother just sounds so sterile and cold. you instantly think of Cinderella or Snow White. Pam’s really a lot nicer then they were) Anyway, she sent me a nice little note with a picture that looked just like her. I thought it was so amazing that the picture bore a remarkable likeness to her, so I said, “wow that’s amazing, looks just like you!”  so she sent the pic above to me. I responded: “I live in fricken Honduras… What the heck is that?
