PR Vlog #5: Helping Others Reach Out

by

The week of October 9th my phone was finally saturated with videos and I couldn’t really record much. It was a very encouraging week, however, because we finally found a way to do our laundry that didn’t involve me washing them in the bathtub.

We also made friends with a family at church that has a custom home in Isabela and builds custom homes for others.

PR Vlog #4: Can You Hear Me Now?!

Grocery stores were again filled to the brim with people stocking up on water and canned goods. Meanwhile, I was once again refusing to accept the reports and going about my days as usual.

PR Vlog #1: Our Week of Normalcy

by

The first week we arrived in Puerto Rico was consumed in acclimating and dealing with Hurricane Irma, so the week of September 11th (oddly enough) was our first “normal” week. We got into a rhythm, found our routine, figured out how life was going to work here and felt like we were flourishing. That is when I began vlogging. I was ready to get back into the swing of things after being here a week without working or Homeschooling at all. It felt good to be productive, while still fitting in the things we had come to love about Puerto Rico the most: the outdoors! Continue reading →
