We were delighted to see her!
Even the dog is beside himself with joy now that his "den-mate" is home.
Stephanie graduated from university with honours last spring, and was uncertain what to do next. She was accepted for post graduate studies in Toronto, but then decided to go and work with my brother Stephen and his family near Torreon, Mexico.
Photo by Paul EllsworthShe has been teaching at their English school, organizing children's breakfasts in a poor neighbourhood, coordinating activities for groups who come from America for short term working holidays, and helping with other administrative tasks. She had studied Spanish in school, and has become fluent in the language this year. Learning to adapt to another culture has had its challenges too. I find it is adjustment to return home to our wealthy country after spending just a couple of weeks in Mexico.
I am going to enjoy the next few weeks, which will be busy in a good way. Homecomings are great!
