Stars are pretty tonight

Hey! Hope all of you are doing well! I can't believe I'll be leaving Ecuador next thursday. The time has gone by so fast! And I have done a ton of things so far! I am thankful that I didn't only come for 10 days, that would have been way to short of a time!

Today was another busy day! I was able to help with therapy all morning! And this time I actually felt like I know what I was doing which is always a good thing!

I was also able to take a few of the kids in a double stroller that CDF has for a walk! Man it is ever beautiful here! The greenery and the trees are just breathe taking! I enjoy going for walks with the kids. The little guy that I had in the stroller Saultin it was his and his twin sisters Yarina's 1st birthday today! During our walk he fell asleep! He was so cute!

For lunch I went to Alexandra's! Where I went the first day at CDF! I had sopa which is Spanish for soup!!! And of course chicken and rice!

I was iMessaging Shawn yesterday telling him I could really go for a big juicy steak and a slurpy right now lol that's is one craving I have!

After lunch I went upstairs at CDF and sorted and did inventory of shoes! Wow there were a tons of shoes all different sizes! It took me all afternoon and still not finished! And I actually saw a cockroach...I didn't kill it I kinda screamed and Melissa killed it lol On a side note did you know that there are cockroaches that have wings and fly...I had no idea! Gross that is all I can say! Ok so back to what I was talking about, I was sorting! And I'm not even finished and I was up there for two hours!

At the end of the day I went into the baby room and held a few of them before I went home! Needed to end on a good note!

So when we got home I was checking Facebook and my emails and the next thing I know I woke up with the iPad on my chest! Like an hour later!

Then I had a tuna sandwich! And watched a movie on Netflix! Then I took Melissa's puppy for a walk to the gym where the dance therapy was happening! The walk was so nice! So peaceful, and the sky was sooooo clear that you could see all the stars!

When I got home I ate papaya!!! Soooooo yummy! I had never tasted papaya before it was amazingly good!! Mi gusta!!!

My legs are doing better, they are still itchy but manageable! And I've been putting on bug spray in the mornings and it seems to be helping!

I'm not sure when I'll be heading to Quito...before may 3 that's for sure! Please pray that I can find a ride to Quito! Thanks everyone! Can't wait to see you all and to talk to you about my time here!



  1. Hola Miss Carlita! Your posts are starting to "sound" like you live there! :-) This is another quick hello to let you know I stopped by to check up on you. You remain in my prayers. Oh, I have to tell you one more thing. At work J is learning about Father Lacombe and the Grey Nuns. You know...Father Lacombe was one of the early missionaries who was on a mission in this area 150 years ago. When I told J that he himself knew a missionary he didn't believe me. You should have seen his eyes when I told him it was you!! Well my friend, time for bed. Hugs! Prayers! *Anne*

  2. Sounds breathtaking :) I am glad to hear that your legs are doing better and that you are enjoying your time there. We are praying for you! Lots of hugs from all of us!

  3. Jas got a weird unexplainable itchy rash on her shoulder and I used that baking soda paste on it and it worked great! Can't remember who told me about it though :)
