When it just doesn’t matter

Our parenting class has had a very low attendance these past three weeks.  While those who have attended have learned a lot, I can’t help but wonder if it was the graduations that kept people distracted or just the lack of interest.  Who knows?

At Play

Our youth won’t rest.  This Saturday began practices for our Vacation Bible school.  That means figuring out games to play with the kids, a choreography to learn and volunteering to assist teachers in the program.

When the party’s over

As the festivities die down, our neighborhood will turn into a ghost town.  Many families will head out of the area to be with grandparents for the summer.  Aside from the visit, most families see this as a time to save money for back-to-school.  At the grandparents’ homes the families allow the grandparents to flip the bill for food during the summer.

One of our Own

Sharon graduated from elementary school and will begin middle school in the fall.  Soon she’ll be invited to our youth group to participate in its activities.  Congrats Sharon!

Graduation Week

The last week saw many young people move on from one school to another as they graduated from elementary to middle schools or from middle schools to high schools.  The streets were filled with well-dressed young people for the occasion.

Youth2Youth 2

Our trip to the Tizayuca congregation to see the youth was welcomed with a small meal of very delicious “potzolle,” a hominy soup normally served at “fiestas.”  We were very surprised and enjoyed sharing their goodies.

Youth2Youth

Our youth group organized a trip to our sister congregation about 1 hour away to encourage and participate in their youth activities.  We had a wonderful time of playing, laughing and learning together.
