León, Nicaragua - Sunday, April 1, 2012

We have made it through our first month and are really starting to feel settled in and a part of things. We are really enjoying our new congregation and are starting to get to know the young crowd - and there are quite a few of them.

Last night we held a "Pass the Pigs" tournament. We've had this game for a long time but hadn't played in a while but since it was small and compact it fit into our suitcase. Rather than dice you have two little pigs that you "roll". Depending on how the little pigs land is how you determine the points for each turn and therefore the winner of the game is the one who first accumulates 100 points.
Pat explains the rules

This morning was a huge cleanup at the Kingdom Hall in preparation for the Memorial on Thursday. We met at the Hall at 8:00 am and were assigned the job of sanding down the window frames. It was so hot today that by 9:30 Pat and I were so hot and tired we couldn't do anymore. We felt like we had accomplished a fair amount though since we had sanded two windows.

Tomorrow is our 29th wedding anniversary and we are still in the process of deciding where we want to go for dinner. I have a feeling that it is going to go a long way in busting our budget....... though Pat disagrees with me.....
