On Monday, December 5, the staff of Clinica Luz y Esperanza went to Aquatica Nautica, a local park beside a beautiful lake, for Staff Day, while former staff (who’d come for Johanna’s wedding) took care of the clinic. Eric and Dad had left that morning for Uruguay, so I was left with little choice but to enjoy their day with them 🙂 It was a very relaxing day for everyone, with good food and good company and very little stress to mar the day. We also had very much fun in the water, and right after we got there, Phoebe and Isaiah jumped into the lake as if they hadn’t a moment to lose! 🙂

Here’s a few of the amazing staff at Luz y Esperansa:
Phoebe got her hands a li’l dirty playing with mud 🙂
And Amy didn’t appreciate me trying to photograph her siesta time 🙂
After we all did our own thing for a while, we had a dee-licious lunch grilled by Jay…
…then we all sat back while Brenda read us a storybook to us. The book was called Good Old Archibald and it was very interesting! 🙂
Then the committee disappeared to rig up a piñata for us:
After many, many! tries, we finally got the thing popped and got to chew on all the goodies.
After that, we start playing EckaBalla on the beach, and somehow we all ended up in the water! Unfortunately, we had to end the fun and pack up to go home, dripping and cold but happy 🙂
And here we is! back row L to R: Jay, Maynard, Cynthia holding Lily. middle row: Dorcas, Brenda, Priscilla, Elsie. front row: Isaiah, Kelly, Maria, Amy, Charlene, Phoebe.
That was Staff Day!
