Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

“¡El camino es la recompensa!”

To quote Maestro Tabárez, national team coach and principal inspiration for the writing contest E participated in:

“The journey is the reward!”

We’re extremely thankful for our Loving Shepherd’s grace to our family in helping our Little People adapt to learning – and, in E’s case, excelling – in another language.

Matías (from AUF) was the main organizer of the contest.

At yesterday’s awards ceremony, seven finalists were recognized in each category and then the winners were announced. E was in the top seven in the 3rd & 4th grade category. Finalists were given vouchers for four tickets each for the Uruguay vs Colombia Game (which will be held in mid-October). And the seating will be right down by the field – far nicer than we’ve ever been in before!

The jury, along with representatives from the sponsoring groups
(AUF and Cámara Uruguaya del Libro), presented the awards
to the finalists and winners.

Yesterday’s experience was definitely a highlight for us as a family.

DJ enjoyed the book fair!

He’s very proud of his Sister!

We celebrated with our favorite ice-cream!

Our schooling journey (at first on the road and now across languages) has definitely involved speed bumps and potholes and detours as well as moments of felt frustration and even tears. Yesterday’s experience was *a hug* from our Loving Shepherd. He knows our need; He is lovingly leading – as He always does – in righteous paths. For His Name’s sake! Even His rod and His staff (instruments of discipline!) comfort us. We can affirm with the psalmist that we shall not lack anything...

What a God we serve!
