A few weeks ago we were asked if Arias could be a model for her and Ellia’s school promo. We didn’t mind at all. One day after our work, Eben took both girls over to the photographers where Arias and two of her fellow schoolmates (seen above) were given the full photo shoot experience, plus all that in the Dominican heat.

   Fast forward to a couple of nights ago, I was told that the promo ad was finished and was now featured in the Playero parking lot. (Playero is the gringo grocery store here in Sosua, if you want to find anything foreign you will find it here.) Today I brought the girls to see the ad, and Arias was so proud of herself. She will now be a part of this town for long after we leave!
