Was chatting Bobber in mini chat this morning and he said Life is what you make it. I replied back something about how I was figuring out what to make next.
It hit me as I was cleaning house – getting a bigger place has been on our minds lately and that is just want I am going to make next. I thought as I was cleaning about how I will get rid of stuff I do not need, organize, clean and physically prepare as if we have already found a place and are getting ready to move.
Capt Jeff just called, they are heading back from a successful morning of fishing with Abel Guerrero – dashing off to Mayan Princess dock to take a picture of a big Jack.
Man what a big Jack it took Capt Jeff about 20 minutes to reel it in. They also caught 3 mackerels and a whack of snapper. Colette and I hitched a ride back through town with Kra-z-k and left Maya and Jeff to watch Abel clean the fish. Back to a bit more cleaning myself before I have to get ready to meet Colomojo and her hubby to take them to the school.
It sure is a a hot one – will be nice to get to BC’s and catch some breeze.
Visit to the San Mateo and the school went well Colomojo and Tracy enjoyed learning about the school and meeting some of the kids. They got to see how useful their donations will be. While there we got to meet a nice group from the states.
Students and faculty from Gainesville State College in Georgia are visiting HC School and participating in a study abroad class entitled “Socio-cultural Perspectives on Diversity,” which aims to teach future teachers how to ensure that all students from all backgrounds are respected and educated in a loving environment.
All 20 students are education majors at Gainesville State College. The students are being led by three faculty members, Dr. Carlise Womack Wynne, Dr. Diane Cook, and Mrs. Valley Rogers. The three professors are working in collaboration with the teachers and staff at Holy Cross to allow GSC students to observe in classrooms and offer teacher training seminars for both GSC and Holy Cross participants. Workshops include Developmental Psychology, Active Learning, and Classroom Management. This is the first visit in what will hopefully be a long collaboration between Gainesville and Holy Cross.
Francis and Vernon oriented the students on Sunday evening with a tour of the school and community. The students from Georgia are so fortunate to be allowed to come and learn and work with the faculty and staff at Holy Cross. Students have been able to work in various faculty and staff roles at the school. Holy Cross was a gracious and welcoming host to our volunteers and the experience that GSC students gained while in Belize was priceless. Gainesville State could not have asked for a more practical and beneficial host school.
BC’s was fun as always – what could be better than making new friends on the beach. Met a few more message boarders boreas, ncrbrew, deadserious and their crews.
After BC’s the gang decided to head down the beach to the Playa Lounge for some cocktails and snacks. While there we spotted someone coming in with their catch – a big dorado. A bunch of us went over to check out the action.
