Hail in Nejapa

    One of the kids’ favorite things to do is to play in the rain.  We have a rule that they can play until it starts to thunder and lightning, which is what happened today.  Soon after they came inside it started to hail!  I couldn’t believe it.  It was the first time I had ever seen hail in El Salvador.  The kids were pretty amazed by ice falling from the sky!  Daniela and Michelle went back out into the rain to collect hail for the other kids to hold it in their hands.



We are still enjoying the last month or so of mango season! We have this really long pole with a little basket attached to it that is used to pull the mangos from the tree and then you lower them to the ground in the basket. They are so good! The picture with Jeremiah holding a mango is probably the biggest one I’ve seen here at Love and Hope. The kids love the mangos so much. By the afternoon most of their shirts are covered in mango juice! The avocados are also in season and the kids love to eat them with Tortillas and salt.
