Hola Amigos y Familia!!
It has been forever since last I blogged, but I wanted to give a quick update to let you guys know that life in the DR is pretty bueno. I cant believe Im coming up on finishing my TENTH month here. I go through stages of thinking that that is a really long time and remembering that I still have a long time to go, depending on the day. Palo Verde is treating me well, but it is flippin HOT right now. The mosquitos have also started to come out in larger numbers so that combo can make life pretty miserable.
As far as work goes, I just graduated a group of youth (I dont like to say "youth group") from a Healthy Sexual Decisions course I was giving. The plan is that now they are going to go out into the community and teach what i taught them to other youth, but I need to remember that they are 15 year old girls, so they are also very interested in boys and straightening their hair, so we´ll see how that goes...
Im also working with a group of Haitians and teaching about a different health topic every week. The biggest successes so far were the ¨Condom on a Plantain¨ presentation and the ¨Plastic Water Bottle Turns into a Man With Diarrhea¨ special effect. Oh how true it is that necessity is the mother of creativity!
i hope I get to see EVERYBODY when I come home in LESS THAN A MONTH (omgomgomgomgomg). I absolutely cant wait and i want to go see movies and eat delicious food and drink cold beer and iced tea (not at the same time). Ill be home the afternoon of the 6th of july and im not leaving until the evening of the 13th. i miss and love you guys SO MUCH and I cant wait to see you!
Love, Mole

You went to do good, stayed to do well
Molly, you be careful down there!

We miss you. I don't think we'll get to see you July 6-13, because we'll be travelling ourselves.

Spenser is spending two weeks in Minnesota, then a week in July fixing up appalachian shacks in Tennessee. He'll be a senior at MHS starting 08 Aug.

Sissy is chilling this summer, and practicing writing on websites such as fanfiction.

Andrew's graduation was fantastic. Betty was there, as were Xaxa and Spenser, Pody, Will, and me. Not to mention your parents. You should be proud of your brother.

Please let us know if we can send you anything.

Uncle Steven
