It’s official, after 6 years of dating, Jeff and I are married! You can now officially call me MRS. Bomba! Crazy! The festivities took place at a friend’s farm, outside, in the wonderful 106 degree North Carolina heat on June 30th! It was one for the books and a “barn burner” to say the least. Thanks to the Maury family for all your well wishes and loving vibes sent our way. Although I don’t have any official pictures from the wedding to share yet, I promise I’ll post at least one once they’re in for you.
In other news..I miss my students!! Even with the pleasant distraction of the wedding and honeymoon, I am still having withdrawals from teaching and seeing the kiddies every day. I have proof of this because while in Colombia for our honeymoon, I couldn’t help but snap shots of school children–especially a group of four year olds at the Botero Museum in Bogota! There is nothing like 4 year olds learning about art, in Spanish, in matching sweat suits, at a museum, to tug on my heart strings.
Lunch time! Students walk home for lunch in Villa de Leyva
I hope everyone has had a productive beginning to summer. I wanted to share a few summer happenings with you all in case you’re looking for a way to beat the heat.
