Mombacho Sneak Peak!

What a day! Our student bloggers are all tucked in, but they will deliver our full report tomorrow. Expect to hear about ghosts, a monkey surprise, and 100% participation on over eleven canopy ziplines! Incredible.

Thanks so much for all of your wonderful comments - we read them aloud each day after every evening meeting - your words of encouragement and support mean so much!


  1. Hi Guys,
    I can't wait to hear about this one from you all.. The expressions on your faces are priceless! You all look like your having such a blast. Inders I hope your taking lots of pictures too...yes I said Inders, I didn't want you to feel left out :)) Keep up the writing we love hearing your take on your amazing experience...miss you xo

  2. Good Morning Loganberry, I really can't wait to hear about the zipline. After that experience you should have no problems with roller coasters. LOL You and Ahmirah look like your having lots of fun together but you both also look exhausted. Take it all in and make sure you write about everything in your journal. I can't believe you only have two more days. Make the best of the little time you have left. Have a great day. Love Mom

  3. HA! Bel, you look positively terrified. I would have been too!I'm so proud of you for doing that and can't wait to hear all about it. I'm sure it was exhilarating once you were doing it. Daddy says hi and he misses you. Jesse says it's nice and quite without you but I suspect he misses you too. Elijones misses you too :(

    Can't wait to see more pictures and hear more about your adventure!


  4. Hi Logan I see your having a blast with experiencing the culture in Nicaragua!Take lots of pictures and continue to enjoy your adventure!

  5. Good morning Tinkerbell :) I can't wait to hear about zipline. I must agree with mom lugo you guys look a little exhausted but in a good way. Enjoy the day sweetheart! I look forward to hearing about zipline later. I love you always.

  6. Hi Mimi!
    You probably thought you were safe with your nickname.... We miss you, but following you and your group's experience, we wish you could stay a few days longer.

  7. Hi Eamon

    We are enjoying the posts and photos. The zipline looks amazing. As afraid of heights as I am, I probably never would have been able to do it. Wish I could say its been quiet here without you but Filomena is more than compensating for your absence in the noise department. I guess she misses her brother and can sense that her mom and dad do as well. Enjoy the rest of the trip. Take LOTS of pictures for dad and bring something cute for Mena.
    Love you.
    Mom, Dad and Filomena
    (and of course Big Boy)

  8. Wow, you guys!! How fun!! Can't wait to hear about this one!! Alex, what's that face? How was the zipline? It looks incredible! Love youuuuuu xoxo

  9. My dear Logan,

    I hope that you are enjoying every moment because it looks like you and your classmates are having fun. ENJOY!

    With my love,

  10. I am loving reading this blog! And I cannot WAIT to hear about the ziplines. That is something I have always wanted to do. Actually, I'm jealous of just about every one of your adventures I've read about so far. Savor every minute of it!

  11. Hey guys it looks like you guys are having a great time I wish i was there. I just got back from Costa Rica but we didn't get to visit and participate another school which seems totally fun!!!! I miss you guys sooo much!!! I hope we see each other after this and talk about our trips.

    Miss you guys,
    Olivia H.

  12. Hi Logan, looks like you are having a great time can't wait to hear all your stories this does not happen every day so take it all in and enjoy .

  13. Hi Bella!
    I can't wait to hear about all of the interesting food you're trying. I miss you tons. So does kitty.....just kidding, she doesn't miss you but Eli Jones does.
    I am so proud of you and love you tons!

  14. Bea's Knees!:) Grammy and Grampa have been watching the blog and send their best and will tell you themselves if they figure out how to leave a We will be going to Lancaster for Easter so you can tell them all about it. This trip blows my trip with Girl Scouts to Wyoming out of the water. I got to sleep in a tent and take 3 minute showers and get a sore butt from riding a horse all day. I would have been the first one on that jealous! Also, I replied back to your retirement comment..Love you much, Mom

  15. Hi Ky!

    Just a small note to say I can't wait until Wednesday, then I can hear all about the fun you're having in person!! I'm sure the zipline wasn't a problem for you, in fact I'm sure you probably wanted to do it again! It must've been great zipping through the beautiful trees in Nicaragua. Hope you were able to take plenty of pictures of the hike. Everyone sends their love & well wishes & we're waiting on our postcards!! :O) Can't wait to see how dark you've gotten...the pic above makes it seem like you've gotten quite a suntan!!! I love you to pieces. See ya soon. *smooches*

  16. Celia,

    we made cascarones today and went to the garden. I made 3 gimp bracelits. LOVE HOPE. How was the zip line?

  17. Dear Celia, I'm wondering how you're doing out there. Is it as hot as it looks in the photos? Because it looks really HOT. I'm imagining you'll receive this message before bedtime so sweet dreams Celia. I love you.

  18. Your last post was so beautifully written that tears welled up in my eyes (sniff sniff)! The way you have been describing your experiences makes me feel like I've been along for an amazing ride. I can tell by your posts that this has been a life-altering experience for all of you and I'm sure you have deeply moved the people that you've met while on your journey. Congratulations to all of you for representing ICS and the US of A in such a thoughtful, warm-hearted and intelligent manner. Well done Take Flighters! Safe travels home.
