A World without walls
everyday life while homeschooling overseas
This is what protesting looks like in Bolivia. During the three weeks of protests and road blocks after the election, this is what we found at almost every intersection. I found it fascinating, though, that it was so peaceful! The people were so happy to be there! They sang songs and waved to us when we walked by. They were trying to show their feelings and their displeasure with their government in very peaceful ways. It was amazing to me to watch. There was an incredible feeling of unity!
Life has definitely been interesting the past few days. People are very angry about the election last Sunday. There were apparently some riots downtown here in La Paz and in other cities around the country. I'm really curious to see if things will just calm down, or if it will get more heated? Only time will tell.
This has been my dream for so long!! My children playing together!! I was playing with them, too, but I had to stop and take a picture of it, because it's just so cool! Claire and I were playing some Celtic duets, and we played some Christmas music together. It was super fun and we have lots of plans to do more together! :)
These two always have SO MUCH FUN together! They're always baking and making inventive things for everyone...and there's always a lot of giggling coming from the kitchen! :) This time, they made a fudge pie and a real British Trifle! I heard nothing but super amounts of praise from everyone who got to eat these deliciously beautiful desserts! :) A lovely feast for British Day at our house.
Conference Weekend is always fun. We eat a TON of candy...ok, the KIDS eat a ton of candy. They get rather silly, too...like sticking Pixie Stix up their nose and sleeping with giant plastic bags on their faces. Whatever. Besides, look who's finally home! It's so fun to have Josh home again after such a long time away!
I went to the RS president's house to watch the Women's session and it was a lot of fun to be with my Bolivian sisters and listen to the announcements and exciting changes that are going on. I loved conference so much this session. I always do, but there was just something so very special about this one. I'm grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I'm grateful to be a woman and I know that I am a special daughter of God who loves me. Life is hard and full of trials and things that can make us cry, but there is peace in knowing who you are and in having made covenants in the temple and knowing that families are forever. <3

by Dan Brown
I like that the plot twists and turns a lot...and it makes you think. However, I don't appreciate Dan Brown's endings in his books. I find the endings incongruent with the rest of his stories--why make it a romance for the last chapter...
I loved this book. I'm a sucker for fairy tales/fantasy. This was so well written! I can't wait to read all the rest of her books!
I'm reading this one again. I liked it the first time I read it. I'm still liking it for the second time around. I like all of Shannon Hales' books. **Still lots of fun the second time around! I do like this book for a comfortable...
