He has shown you, oh man, what is good and what the Lord requires of you: to walk justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

A Winter Week in Paraguay


Green and pink trees,
Not a snowflake in sight;
Flowers blooming everywhere,
The sun's hot and bright

Winter week in Paraguay
What will you get?
Some days are hot
And some days are wet.

Day number one
is a beautiful day
Tee shirt and jeans
It feels like our May.

Day number two
gets hotter yet.
Break out the shorts
And don´t get upset.

Day number three
hit 40 Degrees
For all you in Fahrenheit
That's like 103!

And just when you think
You can´t take anymore
Here comes the rain
A crazy downpour!

Thunder and lightning
storms into the night
But I LOVE storms like this
They don't give me a fright.

Day number 5
I can't remember hot weather
All the clothes that I brought
are as light as a feather.

Friday let's go
Buy scarves, gloves and a hat
At school today a moth
was as big as a bat!

Saturday day seven
the sun has returned!
It's back to the flip flops.
See how much you've learned!

Hanna and I (from my Spanish school) stopped to warm up with
a cup of hot chocolate during our recent excursion around Asuncion.
