We’ve finished up our first week (gotta love these four day weeks!) here at Sahuarita Christian Academy. This is a new school – I think this is only it’s second year. When it began, it had 40 students (K-12) and was totally contained in this building –
(This is actually the rear of the building – it’s the view we see from our parking place.)
This year they have close to 140 students, and have put up three temporary buildings next to our RV sites which now house grades K4 through 6th grade-
The guys have been working on constructing a fence around the area between the school and our sites (which hopefully will become a construction fence when they break ground for a new building. Of course the new building depends on funding, permits, God’s timing……). Gary’s also been doing some routine check-ups on all the A/C units in the buildings. We ladies have been working in the classrooms – tutoring, grading papers, organizing lessons for the rest of the year. It’s been fun to interact with the students and get to know some of the dedicated staff.
And we have been loving Arizona! We’ve stayed pretty close to home this week, but with the weekend ahead, I’m sure we’ll be exploring some of the sights. We already have a field trip planned to go see the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum with the other Sower couples on Saturday. There is so much to see and do here – I’m working on a list to try and keep track of things we really want to do. If you have any suggestions, let me know!
But even though we haven’t had the opportunity to be out and about a great deal (well, we did make it to the laundromat in Green Valley tonight), many lovely sights are just outside our door……literally!

Oh – and did I mention that the weather this weekend is going to be sunny and bright and in the mid to high 70’s. Yep, we’re lovin’ it!
