Time is flying by.....seems like just yesterday that the school year was beginning and we were struggling with Justice going to Kindergarten without understanding very much of anything and speaking even less.
Now, with only three months left of school, he's not only surviving in our precious little Portuguese Kindergarten in our village, but he is thriving! He speaks fairly well, has many friends and is sort of the cult hero of the small school being the only foreigner with a goofy Mom and really cute older sisters.
Next week, the school will be closed for three days for Carnaval. (Mardi Gras) Then at Easter they get another two weeks off. School is out for summer the middle of June but we will leave for furlough at the end of the first week of June.
When I start to consider that time is winding down...school is almost out and we will be leaving VERY soon....I get overwhelmed.
This will be the first time that our family has returned Stateside in 3.5 years. It will be a shock for most of us, especially the younger kids that don't remember much of our time there.
I need advice.
Any of you veteran missionaries reading this.....any information that you can share with me will be greatly appreciated.
I'm looking forward to spending some time with friends and family, but there will be extensive traveling done to raise some much needed funds. We have a lot to accomplish is a very short time.
