Yesterday at the clothing bazaar in ofalu we met the lady who's kids are going to come to English club (remember from the last post, the 9&11 year old?) well she informed me that they are going to bring another kid along next week! they were supposed to come tomorrow but they cant, so all three of them will be there next week instead. its great to have more kids come out, but funny thing happened as i was preparing for this Friday. i was photocopying some worksheets for the 2 kids that i thought were coming, and i thought "i should do an extra one just in case" funny! God already knew there was going to be an extra kid coming. and also i talked to another lady who is going to come learn English 2x a month. its cool how God is bringing these people out, but please pray for us as we prepare lessons, since we aren't qualified English teachers in any way! but pray also that we can share God's love with these people some how through our very broken Hungarian.

well there is one more story that i can tell, since I've gotten over the embarrassment of it! on Saturday kyle and i finally had a day off to ourselves (first in about 3 weeks!) so we were excited to go into Budapest and check out this cool flea market that we had heard of and just enjoy walking about the city. so after a lovely pancake breakfast the kyle made (yup my husband is the best!) we ran to catch the next train to the city. once we were on the train for about 15 mins, i realized that i plugged in the iron but never unplugged it before we left....aghh! i was so mad at myself, but i thought i would call our landlords who live upstairs and ask them to go down and unplug it for us, simple! but they were out and both had left their phones at home! perfect, we had just arrived in the city (35 min ride) and just had to get back on the next one to go home and make sure our house wasn't burned down! well we were 2 stops away from home and of course our landlord calls and says "we are home now and turned your iron off, you can go back" right, perfect timing...so we got off and got back on another train back to Budapest....lots of train time that day! so ya, it was really irritating to me and i felt like i ruined our whole day, since we missed the market because it had closed. but we did end up enjoying the day walking around the whole city basically, it was a beautiful sunny day. above is a picture kyle took from up on the hill on the Buda side. you can see the palace in the distance. we love living so close to this cool city! cant wait for all those visitors (you know who you are!!) to come so we can show Budapest to you too!

You need an iron that shuts off automatically!

I'd take the 3 train-trips over locking my keys in the car any day (yep, did it recently, Grrrrr!). I'm sure you'll be great teachers. I'll be expecting some language story laughs soon from the two of you!
Cheers!
