Crazy Colors

I had this idea in my head.....

Needed Materials:
- Book Shelf
- Duck Tape
- Paint
- Paint Brush

After a bit of time and a lot of patience.....

Look I painted a shelf! 

It may not be perfect but is still way cool

When working with someone with autism you just have to know how to ask the question.

Case and Point:

Campers got a chance to get treats at the beach.
One student got a large, blue snow cone. So you can imagine how much ended up in her mouth and how much end up on her face….

Here is what happened when we got back to camp:

Counselor: ‘Student, did you have a snow cone?’
Student: ‘No!’
Counselor: 'Are you sure?’
Student: ‘It wasn't me!’
Me: ‘Student, what color was your snow cone?’

Student: ‘Blue.’ (said with a big smile)

Sergeant Pepper

I adopted a guinea pig! 
His name is Sergeant Pepper but you can call him Pepper.
I was told he is five years old. 
He is from a family in Wisconsin. 

He loves to eat hay and to explore.

Spiral Graph

Remember spiral graph??

We have a swing hanging from a tree in our back yard
It was too plain...

So my mom and I painted it yellow and spiral graphed it! 

Now it is even more fun!!

Beach Fun....?

It was a hot day so we took a family to the beach. 

It was beautiful and so fun. 

That is until I felt a 'rock' hit my foot
I saw blood in the water so went to clean it off
It didn't look bad but hurt a lot

Then realized I was stung by a stingray.
It was so painful!!

Now that I am back in America, I went to the doctor and taking antibiotics and even though it still hurts a bit. it is getting better. 

Lesson is: shuffle your feet a lot when in water with stingrays.

An Update

Thank you to everyone that made it possible to get a new computer.
I am back online....
Even without a computer life still went on and rather fast
In a short summary here is what has been happening: 

We are now back for the last term of the school year. 
Everyone is studying hard

My mom came to visit me in Rwanda!!
We went on an adventure and had so much fun

My housemates and I moved out of our house and sold everything: even the chickens 
God has called Liz and Joel back to Australia
God is leading me back to America for a while
(If anyone has further questions please feel free to contact me) 

Africa has been a big part of my life for a long time and I feel God has a big plan for me and Africa will always be a part of it in one way or another. 

This month marks 20 years since the start of the genocide in Rwanda. 
We took time to remember the lives that were lost and learn from the past. 

I will be more regular with my updates so feel free to check it out.

Happy New Year

I just wanted to update everyone:

- My computer, among other things, was stolen. I am working on replacing those things.
- For those of you that have been following for a while now you may know Bella, my guinea pig who meant so much to me. She passed away but I know she is in a better place now.
- My car was hit and needed a bunch of repairs but it is now working well.

I had a great Christmas in the village of Kenya :)

It is hard when so many things happen when you are just trying to do good but I know God has called me to do what I am doing and will continue until He says otherwise.

December was a rough month for me but God is good and He continues to be in control.
