Today we visited a community of indigenous Paraguayan people. It was very interesting to see and experience. The first picture is of some of the students here at the school and the rest are ones we took when we were out with the people.

Here are some pics from the day! We are in Cerrito which is a small community about 40 miles away from AsunciĆ³n. The school here is amazing. The weather is so beautiful! We have our own little house for all the BYU interns and it is really great! Except for the frogs in the bathroom.... haha. Tonight we played ultimate frisbee with some of the students!!! It was so fun! The kids have never played ultimate frisbee and they caught on SO FAST it was insane! I was so impressed. Anyways here are some pictures!

Me and Jar :)

Estoy Aqui!

We made it! It was a loooong day but we made it here with no troubles! Our luggage even made it with no spills or anything! We are currently in the capital city of Asuncion where we are just staying for the night. Tomorrow we will head to the school where we will be working for the next three weeks!We have been told that there is reliable internet access where we are staying so I should be able to get on pretty often! Here are a few pictures of my trip so far! None of them are actually of Paraguay because it was practically dark when we got here!

This is a view of the sunrise on the plane on the way to Chile!

Jarilyn asleep in the Santiago airport. We were there for 6 hours.....

My view of Chile from the airport.

I will try my best to keep this updated and post some great pictures!

I think it is finally hitting me....

What else could bring me to the verge of tears since the minute I woke up this morning?!

I am graduating. From graduate school. In 3 days. I am 23. My family is coming. In 3 days. I have missed them.

I haven't had / given myself the time to think about how big of a deal this is. Well, as soon as I woke up this morning it kinda all hit me at once. Now I can't stop thinking about it. And it makes me cry.

No, I am not sad. At all. Just nervous/excited/anxious/nostalgic/happy/ other feelings that words don't exist for. These feelings can become overwhelming and make me cry. But it's ok! I was wondering when I was actually going to have feelings about this!

This is going to be an interesting week indeed!

I am so so SO happy right now! Also, I am slightly nervous/sad to be leaving a certain someone in a week. I am so glad it is only for three weeks.
