So, the rain here is sooo weird.. they have a lot  of electrical rain and when it rains it just pours! This is what happened before we could even get out our umbrellas! sooo ugly.. lol but it felt soo good!

This is a dead spider... haha it is the size of my hand.. so scary! And me holding a puppy at a members house! it was sooo cute and it followed me everywhere! the other is me walking on the side of the road! this is a pic after it rained! Gorg!

This place is beautiful! I know! haha

This is more scenery! and that ice cube in my hand came from the sky! This is the size of hail that they get here! but don't worry when it hails we have to stay under a covered area!!

This is me at subway! I know right! and a super huge butterfly! and the beautiful scenery that I get to look at every single day! lol be jealous!

These are pics from the baptism of Jackson! He is 15 years old! Adorbs! And I made him brownies! Brownies is not a huge thing here! but everybody LOVED IT and asked form the recipe! lol It was funny! and the other pic is of a roach on our wall! he was the size of my hand.. no joke! hahah

pics are of my tan lines from week one and week two... lol
This is our apartment here in sao leopoldo! yikes I know! but we got new beds that I had to build... because no other sisters know how to look at a piece of paper and put together a bunk bed.. it took me about a week because I could only build them between 930 and 1030 but i did it! Thank you Daddy for showing me how to do that! lol I used your wisdom on this. It was only hard when I didn't know a word in Portuguese!

The one in the purple was my trainer. and i like her but not as my trainer. the other one is sooo funny and thats Sister Mariz. she is my companion now. the photo is a form the elders that lived here before us.. goofballs!
