School is Starting Again

Out with the cows

So school is starting in Brazil again.  But it works a bit different here than it does in the U.S.  Usually, school is only like three or four hours.  Kids go to school in the morning, or in the afternoon, or at night.  So it is really quite different.  However, now the kids will stop flying kites in the streets. (Kite-flying is very popular in Brazil amongst kids, and lots of adults as well.)  And kids will, in general, be a lot less present from now on.  
The week went well for us.  This week we are going to work even harder though. That is always nice. It is better to just work harder I think.  
In other news, we have begun to use some trails lately because they are a lot faster to get from one bairro (neighborhood) to another sometimes.  I included a picture with cows.  I don't think I have ever walked through a cow pasture before and when you have to go everywhere in a white shirt it makes every nature adventure just a bit more risky.  That is always fun.  We really weren't expecting the cows to be there because they had never been there before, but it seems like the cows weren't expecting us either because a lot of them looked at us rather startled.  The picture is a bit strange but whatever, I'm sending it anyway.
The week was a good one.  I love you all!
