Let's Review!

Things they do better in the DR:

  • Christmas gifts from students (I think I had a suitcase full at Christmas)
  • Croquette- no Michelle this isn't dog food- it's fried pureed chicken motz sticks
  • Quiznos is better here
Future Plans:
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11... to be continued! :)

That's a year in review- I'll go back in later and put some links in to people's blogs and events. I'm signing off from the DR until early August. I am headed to Michigan for ~5 weeks... you may continue to see a few posts from "Life in GR", during the break.

This blog will be back in action ~ August 2010. See ya then and have a great summer!
