My oldest daughter and I had a chance to travel to the country of Guatemala in Central America during Holy Week back in April. It was truly an amazing trip to experience all the color, faith and culture of this country. Being avid admirers of nature and including nature studies as a core part of our schooling; we particularly devoured the natural sites visited. We wanted to include some photos of our trip and give you just a little background about them. I won't post all at once about our visits, but look out for them here and there.
