Ecuador... I am finally here!!

I know that it has been a long time since my last update. Sorry for the delay. For a while I did not have access to reliable internet and then school started so....

Well, here we are after 3 1/2 years of raising support and language school, I am finally here in Ecuador. It has been a big transition but I am loving it here.

In the last month I have:

1. Finished Language School
2. Moved Continents
3. Furnished a house
4. Moved into my house
5. Learned to use a gas stove- I still don't know how to work the oven (I don't know how to light it with a match)
6. Setup my classroom
7. Started School
8. Gotten a parasite
and much much more!

Yes, that's right. On the first day of school, I woke up with a fever. I got a parasite. (Very common here in Shell. I just had to get some medicine for it from the hospital. However, I felt very crummy for a few days )

However, I love my little class. The kids are wonderful. They are so excited about school and even begging for homework (I have 1st and 2nd graders- they will change their opinion soon)

Below I added some pictures of my classroom and my house. Enjoy!
The front of my house.

The Kitchen and the oven I don't know how to operate

Classroom Computer and Cubbie Holes

Word Wall and all of the animals painted on the walls. It's a jungle in there!
