Today was a honest to goodness rainy day. It was beautiful in the early morning, but by about 10 am, it started to rain... and it hasn't really stopped all day. It's so very rare that we have all-day rain. And it was chilly, too... I was chilled to the bone. We had a fire tonight for the first time in months... it felt nice and cozy.
This afternoon, I was a judge for a Spelling Bee contest at the Copey elementary for grades 4, 5 and 6. Twelve students participated and it lasted about an hour or so. The kids were so excited and most did particularly well. The three finalists will be moving to the regional Spelling Bee... and then the nationals. I was joined by the two Peace Corps volunteers, Eve and Joseph, who will be moving to Copey in early June. They'll be here for two years. And Manolo, the head honcho of the public school system in the Los Santos region, was on hand to help as well. The kids had a great time... and so did we. It was nice to be able to help Catalina (the English teacher) out.
