Jeanette is back from her service in El Salvador!
After some affectionate hugs from her two younger brothers,
she got her luggage
filled with dirty clothes and souvenirs
and we headed home! 1:00 am is a little late for the 3 amigos. Funny - they were all wide awake until I pulled out my camera.
A little story about my souvenir. Jeanette was on the beach and saw some shells that she thought would be good to get for the folks back home. Suddenly, a woman with a basket appeared and with a smile announced, "Recuerdos a un dólar." Jeanette bought this lovely masterpiece of birds made entirely of sea shells. The paint was still wet. How awesome is that! And for only a dollar! I'm sure I'll find a perfect place for it in my room that's...lime green and pink!
It's good to have her home! If you go here, you'll see the mural Jeanette worked on for the boys Crisis Center and read a little more about what she did and why. It will be worth 5 minutes of your time.
