Now Abish has been five for more than six months. We had first thought of starting kindergarten when the school, Puebla Christian School, began their classes in August. However, that was not a good option, because by then we were getting ready to move into my mother-in-law's almost completed house. While staying with her, we didn't have an adequate space, or the resources (almost all our stuff was packed), to do school with Abish. Then we thought we would start school in January. By then we had moved ourselves, and lots of packed items, into our mostly finished house.
However January didn't really work, because we were in the States for the first two weeks for my brother's wedding. We settled on starting in February. We couldn't quite get everything ready for starting on the first week of February, so it was the second week when I sat down with Abish at his little table, and we began with a prayer.

Abraham teaches Caminata Biblica, PE, a reading progam called Mas Luz, and also counting from 1 - 20 in Spanish. I am the lesson planner in general and also teach Walk Through the Bible, reading from the book Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, geography, and math. He does not, of course, do everything
every day. Lani sometimes likes to join the classes.

As we do classes, the sound of the workers finishing the second story can sometimes be rather loud. However, they have made excellent progress, and we should be able to use the whole, finished house in about a month.
Please join us in praying that Abish will learn well in school and that the work on the house will continue with no accidents.
