It is the everyday stuff that makes up our neighbourhood and our neighbours. Like back home we lucked out in the neighbour department and have people who bring us fresh fruit and help out when something needs to be fixed.

My heart is also with my family because they have been so awesome over the last 40+ days. Lots of calls on Skype and love sent. Also lots of coordinating of things for our family as well as for my schools here in Grenada. It is amazing to think how little it can take to make such a big difference. Some days I can't wait to call my mom or my twin sister Ceilidh and they always listen patiently while I gush, or vent, or a boy explains how he won a game or drew a picture. It means a lot. In fact I was able to Skype my sister yesterday in her hotel room in Sudbury- the world is an amazing place.
So while I am so thankful for the opportunity to work in Grenada and make a difference, I am also thankful for those behind the scenes supporting us.
We did also make it to an amazing beach today - La Sagesse. It is popular with locals because a river meets the ocean here and creates a shallow pool where non-swimmers can bathe safely. We had amazing luck because there was a thunderstorm right on the edge of the beach but it was moving toward St. George. So while we played in the surf it poured back home! All in all a great day!
