Throughout our travels we've seen some memorable, and sometimes funny, signs. Here are a few that jumped out at us when we were browsing through some old pictures.
Last week was Environmental Week (think Earth Day for a whole week) at the kid's school. Each grade in the school had multiple field trips and assorted activities to learn more about the environment and how to protect it. Tag's class visited our town's Bomberos (aka Fire Fighters). This was not a field trip I was going to miss. And in true Guatemalan style, this is one field trip where the US cannot compete.
Tag ran his first 5K with Ken (it was awesome) and the next day Ken ran a Half Marathon winning 2nd in his age group.
