Global Legacy Programs visits Guatemala.

The Global Legacy Programs group visited us this week in Panajachel. They brought with them sewing machines that are greatly valued. These sewing machines are delivered to our sewing group. But they also found time to have fun at the Mayan Families Panajachel Pre-School.
They helped give out donations of clothing that we had recently received . All the children received clothing.

Mireille, the director of the Global Legacy Programs quickly made friends with her balloon talents!

Lining up , with balloons in hand, to receive clothing donations.

The visitors were happy to give out donations of clothing that we had recently received.

The main room was cleared for games and dancing!

Members of the Global Legacy Program took part in the dancing competitions!

Yesterday, was also our daughter, Aleeya's 5th birthday. She celebrated in the morning with the children at the pre-school. There were games, a pinata, candy, cake and jello. A good time was had by all!!

There was a pinata and candy!

Singing Feliz Cumpleanos a Aleeya!

Aleeya had the Guatemalan tradition of taking a "bite" of the cake and then gently getting your face pushed into the cake. Sometimes people forget the "gently" part!!
