Palencia School Celebration

This morning, we joined my cousin Naomi to celebrate the opening of the new school in Palencia that she helped create. It was a huge deal and we were very happy to be able to join her as family to celebrate. There were many, many speeches of which we understood very little except that everyone is very optimistic that this will help to improve the lives of the children of this town and that Doctor Naomi is very very respected in Guatemala...for good reason. It was a very special morning and we felt like honored guests. The children were beautiful and we really enjoyed watching the kids standing for 3 hours of speeches. They were adorable and fidgeting and playing the entire time. One this is for sure and that is that children are the same everywhere.
