Back to school!

Today's the first day of school so all the kids were out the door bright and early this morning.  They all wear uniforms no matter where they go to school.  We visited some members, Nildo and Silvina Ledesma, and 3 of the 4 children came home while we were there.
Their son's uniform looks like a labcoat doesn't it?  He also has a tie he wears with it.  Then the daughter in the back is also wearing a tie.  It's extremely common to see the school uniforms include a tie for the girls.  With a light blue skirt and a blue tie, she's wearing the colors of their flag.  They're a great family and are a wonderful help to all the missionaries.

Yesterday we had all the missionaries from our zone over for panqueques con dulce de leche/pancakes with a carmel spread. The sisters arrived later but here are pictures of the elders.
From the lower left:  Elder Neville/UT, Leandro - a youth missionary, Elder Puma/Peru, Elder Gossling/GA, Elder Guymon (in light blue T-shirt)/UT, Nicolas - a friend of the missionaries, Elder Bilbao/Chile, Elder Mosmann/Argentina, Elder Bethers/UT, and Elder Hughes/UT

From left:  Elders Auma/Peru, Critchlow/UT, Gallacci/WA, and Correa/Chile.  They'd played basketball for a couple of hours before coming to our home so had really worked  up an appetite.  The one elder we're missing in all the pictures is Elder Egbert/UT.  He was over in a corner and I guess we missed him.  Next time we won't!
