The students were singing along and listening to every word Cakito and the boys had to say. I think they were a bit speechless for awhile. They had no idea what was coming! To finish up things in the classroom, we turned on "Teach me how to Jerk," and Joel and Johvanny did a bit of break dancing. Once this was over, we all went outside to play a game of soccer in the mud…hilarious. Johvanny fell twice. Overall, I thought this was a great experience for the kids to see older boys they look up to, having fun in a good way, enjoying each other, and sharing about Christ. Hopefully I can do something like this again in the future, si Dios quiere :).

We have a hole in the screen above our kitchen sink that a rat likes to crawl through and come steal food at night, mostly avocado. Who would've known that a rat would like aguacate? So Tuesday night at around two Cara woke me up scared that there was a person on our back porch. I woke up and heard the noise. We thought it might be a person, doing who knows what, so I turned on the light thinking maybe they would leave if they knew someone was up. I was not about to walk back there. When I did this, we heard a shuffling noise, and at that point I thought for sure a person. We both freaked out, without making any noise, took off our flipflops, ducked low and crawled out of the room so the "person" wouldn't see us. We called several people who were obviously asleep at this time and finally got a hold of Johan. He came over and thought we were talking about our front porch so texted me when he got back to his house saying, "It's clear." Ahhh, we can relax...ya right. We heard the noise again. At this point, we don't want to call Johan back and annoy him, but of course we did anyways :). While waiting, Cara opened one of the back porch doors, and I grabbed a butcher knife, haha. We walked out, turned the corner, and saw the filthy critter trying to escape out of a bucket that was randomly placed under the screen window (while crawling out of the hole in the screen, it fell into the bucket). It couldn't get out, and it just kept sliding back down. Johan finally got to the house, half asleep with two different colored sandals on (you can see in the pics) and covered the bucket so the rat could not get out, and a friend disposed of it the next day. The end...I wish.
The next night we had friends over cooking and another one popped his head out of the cabinet. Of course us girls screamed running out of the kitchen, only to let it escape out of the screen window. Bleh. We know have two sticky traps and are waiting for the nasty thing to come back.
