Guns, Tag, Blessings, and 'Happy' pictures

You all are probably wondering about the 'Guns' part. Last night I was sitting in the guest house, when I heard very loud 'popping' noises. At first I thought it was some boys trying to shoot birds with their plank guns, Next I thought it was fireworks. (Like they'd shoot off fireworks for "the October 13th"!) Then I heard Mom yelling at Dad and Samuel, who were on the roof, to get down and I got scared. They ran into their house and I called to them from the guest one. Dad said to be quiet and stay inside.


 After what seemed to be a long time, the shooting stopped and Dad came into see me. He told me that there's a man who sells drugs just up the hill, and men who take drugs sometimes go up and shoot at him. Dad says if it happens again tonight we'll move somewhere else...I hope we won't have to move, I like being close to the beach. Anyways, that's the gun story. :D

Bye for now! In Christ,
