Friends

Our families have been here to visit.  It was great to have them here.  But no visit made us miss being in Austin more than when Matt and Joel came to stay for a while.  We were used to only seeing our families every few months, but these guys were people we used to see on a weekly basis - shooting pool, going out for a beer, goofing off.  They had lots of news from home, like which roads were now finished, who all of our friends were now dating, and how our dogs were faring under foster care.  Good thing they came when we had just over three months left here.

They braved our house in Cantel before going with us to Lake Atitlan and Antigua.  In Cantel, they helped us plant our final crop of corn, which is now growing nicely.  Who would have known they had the magic touch?  Afterward, we cooled off in the pool hat sits next to the public bath house.  It was a good time for the whole family.

If you have seen any of our pics on this site, you know that we have been to the Lake and Antigua a few times.  Still, every time is an adventure.  Guys, thanks for coming.  We'll see you soon!
