We have had a busy weekend. It was fun but busy.
Saturday we went to Puerto Barrios for the fair. It was fun. The pics are of Gabby and Brigham on the ride. Sorry there are so many! They were just so darn cute I couldn't eliminate any. Gabby would have love Busch this year. She is the perfect age for Disney also.
We also watched a few minutes of soccer. It was super hot though so we didn't last long.
We ate McDonald's for lunch. Nathan and I agree that a quarter pounder with cheese tastes better in Guatemala for some reason.
Then we went to the church for youth night and stayed and played kickball, soccer, basketball. The kids are getting really good at soccer. They play a lot with the kids that live near the car lot and then every Saturday night at the church. It is really fun to watch them.
I just got a calling to be in the primary! Is anyone surprised?! I think it will be as a teacher, which will really help expedite my Spanish.
We had a family come to church with us today which was great. They seemed to really enjoy it, then we went to someone's house for lunch and a birthday party for the Primary President. The food was soooo good! It was similiar to a roast with a delicious gravy served with rice mixed with veggies, and avacodo chopped up with lemon. I have to learn how to make it. I was so amazed at how efficiently a meal can be served to so many people and cleaned up in no time flat. We had one table for 8 people and over 20 to serve and everyone had a sit down dinner.
We didn't get home until after 4pm so I am super tired. I just wanted to make sure and put up the pics from the fair before I chill.
The disney shows sound great for Xela but our DVD/VCR got fried in a power surge so now we just have the xbox for movies. We did just get satellite hooked up however so we have Disney now. Thanks for thinking of XeXe. It was so thoughtful and thanks for the hugs.
That is so awesome about Courtney making it into the dance company. She has worked hard for many years to earn it and we are so proud. I am thinking about letting Xela do facebook also but a little nervous. It would be fun for her and Courtney to keep in touch that way though.
If it is ok with you I may have everyone send donations for the orphanage to you?! If not let me know.
Fabric would be fantastic! We are actually learning how to make skirts for homemaking next week. It should be interesting - no patterns and sewing by hand! Anyone want to take a poll on how my skirt will turn out?????
