I am finally back from my trip to the USA. It was great to see my family (Dad, brothers, aunts, uncles, and nephews) and get a chance to help around the house a bit. But 10 days away from my nuclear family was a bit too much. I learned a lot in the Vermont course and it will make me a better school leader.
Above is a photo of Owen. We spent my last day before I left at the BioCenter Guembe. It was a perfect day and I just can’t get over how fast the kids are growing. Owen looks like a “dude” now.
On a side note, while I was waiting in Miami for the night flight to Bolivia, across the street from the hotel was a Venezuelan restaurant/bar. I went over for the afternoon to enjoy an arepa and a chicha. Best of all, I met the Polar Beer Distributor who was there preparing for the big Venezuela versus Paraguay Copa America semifinal game. We drank a few beers and he gave me some Polar soccer souvenirs to give to my kids. I lived a long time in Venezuela and have fond memories of my time there. It was good to reconnect with the country.
I end this post with a photo of the incredible sunset I experienced in Michigan. It was just after a thunderstorm and it was the brightest orange I’ve ever seen. Absolutely breath-taking and this photo is untouched by photoshop!
