Welcome to my world

...come on in!It has been a rollercoaster this week, last week. The ups and downs of development work definitely feel like a rollercoaster sometimes. DOWN. One of our classes has to be re-scheduled because our teacher's daughter got sick and she couldn't leave her at home or bring her with as she lives more than an hour and a half out of town, up the mountain. UP. We celebrated with one of our literacy groups, for finishing their 3 month classes and improving on their exams, with a very, very big lunch. DOWN. Another class was (not so strategically) planned on the same day there was a transportation strike and we had few participants come and make jewelry. UP. Tula and I found a new, motivated family to replace a family that dropped out of the health project due to lack of motivation and family initiative.

I am ready for a roller coaster break this weekend. Some time to be still and not move in one direction or the other.
