Unexpectedly, good things happened on the Third of July. One phone call changed my day! Isn't life always that way?
The phone call was from my son and with that it was decided that Sebastian would spend the day with me. How wonderful! Imagine the surprise when TWO kids showed up and Matilda was
It was great as we had not seen each other since the end of March! Waaaaaaaaay too long.
Yes, both have gotten taller. Add to that, Sebastian is reading like a whiz! Speechless would be an apt expression of my surprise, as a year ago he was just beginning to learn words! He is "off to the races". Since, to me, reading is key to life, happiness reins.
Add to the kids being here, I was finally able to give them their presents that I brought back from Texas! Shouts of glee was their reaction. For Seb, it was a Nerf ball and bat along with a golf club and ball with little pockets to catch the ball. For Mati, it was a craft box of sticky things to make things. The kids played with that for over two hours. It was fun to watch their creativity. Then out came the big blocks and they made a building for the creatures they created. Here are a few photos of that day.
At some point we did stop for lunch of spaghetti and meat balls - home made, along with yogurt and assorted other things that they found in the fridge from time to time!
Then the next day came and the kids had school. After all Independence Day is not celebrated in Mexico. So they all came after school, which was perfect as it gave me all morning to cook and
get ready for them.
