I know I should post about the details of the past week, but it just feels a little too overwhelming tonight. I did put a couple of things on Facebook, but thought I’d post here in case anyone has been checking the blog and wondering how things are going. We arrived Tuesday morning, and everyone is well. We are living in a hotel right now, but barring delays (and if you’ve ever lived in South America you’ll know I’m saying that with tongue-in-cheek), we should be able to move into our house this week — possibly Wednesday afternoon. We’ll be camping out with very little furniture for a month or so, but it will still be better than a hotel.
We went to church today. Did you know Mormons go to church for three hours? It feels LONGER when you don’t understand anything that’s being said! People are very warm here, though, and since our children are going to an English-speaking school, we feel good about being immersed in Spanish at church. It FEELS the same, just gives me a headache from trying so hard to understand.
I might start posting every day for awhile, if I can, so I can remember the challenges of these early days. We’re going to love it here, but there are certainly challenges. More coming soon.
