The Nicaraguan ABCs: K is for...

Kiddos

First, there's kiddo #1 in our life that we haven't met in person yet, but with whom we're already smitten!  "Must be the water," some Nicaraguans say..."I tell you, Nicaragua is a fertile land," others say.  Our pals here are pretty proud that this kid has a little bit of Nicaraguense in him...well, not really...but he could at least claim that he's "Made in Nicaragua."

Secondly, there are the ESL class kiddos, the ones who are responsible for driving us nuts.  They've also given us a lotta laughs and learning experiences.  When we started promoting English classes around here in March, we sorta scratched our heads when the majority of enrolled students were 10 and under.  Duh!  It seems like a no-brainer, but we've been working with adults for so long, we hadn't even thought of the possibility of teaching a kids' class.

Well, why not?  we said.  So the class began...as well as the mayhem every Mon/Wed/Fri from 5 to 6pm...but that's another story...

  1. I sure miss all those kiddos. It was a blessing to be a part of their world for a little while.
