It's the middle of November 2012, which means I arrived in Moropoto about 4 years ago as a Peace Corps Agriculture & Food Security volunteer.
Lenin and I left Nicaragua about the 3rd week of January 2011. I won't bore you with details, but here are the highlights..... Realized I came home a few weeks pregnant; Lenin got his green card on St. Patricks Day; we worked over the summer; Isabel Vilma Torrez-Baade was born on October 17th, 2011; Lenin passed his full driving test just about that time.
Now Isabel is a year old but acts so much older! I am 30 (!). Lenin continues working at the resort. He just requested all of his days that he could and we are headed back to Nicaragua for the holidays.
We'll be here for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. We fly down on December 8th and return January 17th, so about two years after we came home to Missourah the first time.
