Day 4 in Guatemala

Hello Everyone! Today was a very productive day for us, as we managed to build 11 stoves! We had fabulous weather, and everybody is happy and healthy. Colleen and Lizzie went on over to the preschool where they played with the little kids for a few hours. Kari´s group was on their last stove of the day, when they came across five dogs who were not being taken care of due to lack of food. We sent all the dogs over to Mayan Families, where they will be nursed back to health. On a lighter note, today was also Katie´s birthday, so we decided to have a little celebration with our friends at Mayan Families. They were so kind as to cook us Katie´s favorite meal, which was spaghetti. They also made the most adorable cake for us, along with ice cream. We were about to call it a night, when we got a little tied up. That is, in a pinata party! It took us awhile, but we finally were able to break the Minnie Mouse pinata open. Tomorrow will be our last day of building stoves, as three remain to be installed. Thank you to everyone who helped make this wonderful trip possible!
