Free Day in Paradise

Today everyone got to do whatever they wanted. From zip lining and sand volleyball to massages, shopping, and tanning by the pool, we had fun. The adventure-seeking members flew across 6 zip lines, swung on a Tarzan swing, and repelled quickly down a tree. The beach was a slight disappointment. Instead of gorgeous white sand, it was muddy and rocky. But not everything can be perfect, right? After attempting some pool volleyball (which the girls lost by about 50 points) we tried sand volleyball. That went much better. We visited the nearby town of Jaco and ate lunch there. We quickly found KFC, Subway, and a little pizza shop. Definitely a nice break from rice and beans. We did a little shopping and found some sweet souvenirs: dresses, jewelry, t-shirts, and wooden trinkets. After returning from town, we played a little soccer match. Brian G1 (aka Brian Gray) caused injuries on the field. From nailing Elizabeth in the stomach to hitting Kristin in the head, Brian was kicking butt and taking names. He scored three goals, tying with Gustan, our soccer-loving tour guide. (He calls it football and says that our football should be called "rugby lite".) Surprisingly, it did not rain today. We ended our activities with supper at the Mariott. Today was "super fun" and we really enjoyed our day of relaxation at the resort!

Pura vida,

the Penguins

My son just joined this year the FFA at Roseburg High school in Roseburg, OR. We found ourselves flipping through our Direct TV and found ourselves watching the National FFA convention and the tail end of the awards, FFA Choir and then "PAUL" FFA National President.
His presentation had us in tears. God Bless the FFA,
And God Bless you Paul. GREAT Presentation.
We all need to See people more clearly. You are right, it starts here and now.

Mrs. Smith and Justin
