The last days of November and first days of December are the time of graduations here in Honduras. School ends in November, usually before Rainy season starts. This year Rainy season got an earlier start than normal and some kids had trouble getting to school the last two weeks or so.
In the last week, I have had two graduations. One for Sara, my employee Irina's oldest daughter. She was graduating from Kindergarten, which is a big deal here. It was fun to get to spend time with Irina's family, something I hadn't done in quite a long time since she lives kind of far away.

Calix and I were her Godparents for her graduation.
Yesterday I went to a 9th grade graduation for Joni, a teenage youth from the church. I have been in charge of his scholarship at a local bilingual school for the last 2 years. I help him with any school needs he has, as well as sometimes his English school work, or whatever he needs. His graduation was a very formal graduation with appetizers and a full meal and dessert. The decorations were exceptional.
