Last weekend we took a trip to the zoo with Julicia….well, I’m not
sure how to spell her name. She is one of Brian’s friends from his
language learning route. She works at the National Theatre and is an
art student. She’s also studied tourism, so she knows a lot about the
city and took us to some great parks and shared pieces of history about
buildings too. She’s really sweet and is great with kids, so she loved
being with our boys. The zoo was small, but fun to see something new
and practice spanish too. Here’s some pictures…….
This is one of the great parks she showed us…it had a little bamboo forest…..love it!
This is the sign for a building I didn’t post a picture of.
Grammy made these super hero capes for the boys and their friends to play with. This friend is Olivia…she’s our new neighbor downstairs, along with her family Jeff, Tracey and Sawyer. We first met them at MTI in November in Colorado. The boys love having playmates downstairs….it’s fun for Brian and I too.
These are the boys new quilts from Grammy!!! She first made them as curtains for Malachi’s room in our Philly house. I wish I had a picture of them in their original state. She turned them into quilts. The valance is now Zekey and Elijah’s pillowcases. Malachi’s was originally a pillow that my mom made for Malachi’s room. This print was inspired from the quilt Brian and I had picked out for Baby Malachi….Zekey is using that quilt now, but Grammy knows she has another project ahead of her for Zekey. =) They are so beautiful and I love them so much! She also made those other little pillows on the boys bed…..Elijah picked the monkey pillow, Malachi the Cars pillow and Zekey has Thomas. Cute, cute, cute!
We started our classes. My new teacher is Laura…she’s great. She knows Grammar really well. She’s really easy to talk to. I’m so very thankful! There are some not so easy teachers to talk too….and who don’t correct you at school or who make you feel bad when they correct you. SO that is why I’m so glad I have her!
Yesterday Brian and I had a date. We saw the movie PS I love You. I cried and cried and cried. Brian and I ate yummy crepes and coffee afterwards and had some great conversation. One of my fears is losing him to death……do any of you have that fear? He asked me if that was a normal for a person in my position……young kids….etc. I try to plan what I’d to support me and my boys and where’d we live…….anyway. Just wondering if I’m alone on this. Just realized this last week how I often live my life out of fear, I DON”T WANT TO LIVE THAT WAY. But this is one of the top on my list. It’s opened my eyes to how I need to trust God more. I don’t mean that in a trite way either……really all out trusting him so I don’t live my life in fear of the unknown.
