Schools Out for Summer!!

It is really strange for us as we sit in the middle of April and everyone around us is talking about what they are doing for summer break. As y'all know, summer in the states is June through August. Typically schools are getting out for the summer in early June and returning again for another year in late August or Early September. Here, our summer runs from April to June. This is our hottest time of the year so it makes sense that the kiddos are not sweltering inside of a classroom all day. We enjoyed graduation day on April 18th and were so proud of the preschoolers and 6th graders that walked across the stage in their cap and gown. Children of Hope school only goes through the 6th grade. 7th grade though 12th grade then goes to school at one of the christian schools in Cebu. We are excited for the "summer" activities to start up such as soccer camp, basketball camp, or swimming lessons. Each of the kids aged 10 and above get to pick one fun activity to participate in during the day for the summer weeks. Isaac, Carter, and Mady are looking forward to picking fun activities to do along side the CSC kids too! It will be hard for Isaac, Carter, and Mady,  I am sure, to stay focused on their school work. They will not finish the year until June 9th. There will be a little overlap in summer breaks but not much. Please continue to pray for the kiddos (and me) as we finish our school year strong! God bless you all!!

A few prayer requests...
-School: We (our family) are on an American school timeline. Please pray that we are able to balance everything during these summer months here while participating in the fun and also getting done what we need to get done with school.

-Summer Activities: That we will find the things to do with the kids at CSC to help keep them busy. As parents, we all know that the beginning of summer is awesome and great but as the summer goes on, it gets harder to find fun things to do for the kids to keep them busy.

-Health: We have been doing great! Continue to pray for health and praising God with us that we haven't had many "big issues".

-Safety: Always. We thank God that so far we have never found ourselves in a situation where we felt unsafe. There is a little unrest around us though so keep praying for safety. Thanks!

**I have been trying for a few days to add some pictures. Our internet has not been working the best lately so no pictures today. Sorry.
