On Friday night we drove into town and ate supper at Pollo Campero. That's always a fun outing!

Saturday morning got started normal- as in 5:05 a.m.! There are days when I really miss getting to sleep in. I feel like we are up, fed, and dressed before the average person ever gets out of bed.
Our breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, blueberry muffins, strawberry yogurt, and apple slices.
After naptime we got dressed and drove into town. We had plans to attend the circus. Normally when the circus is in town they have three shows on Saturday and Sunday- 4:30, 6:30, and 8:30. We like to go to the 4:30 time. This time they did not have an early one. We found out after arriving so we had a little time to kill while we waited on the next show. We drove across the street to the mall and let the boys play and we enjoyed some coffee and adult conversation.

"Sally the camel has one hump..." Anyone else's kids sing that song when they see a camel?
Me and my sweet boys ready to watch the circus. It's one of our favorite things to do.
David and the boys
We invited two other missionary families to join us. There were nine kids in all and my boys loved having everybody there together. It made it extra fun.
Sunday morning David headed up the mountain to teach in the village of Nearar. While he was gone the boys and I worked on a few projects. Wednesday (Oct. 1) is "Kid's Day" in Guatemala. It is like Mother's Day and Father's Day but it honors the kids. How fun is that! We made crowns for them to wear that day.
My boys love to paint, draw, glue, cut, marker... all that fun crafty stuff.
After supper we bathed them and put them a movie on in their room. David drove over to the coffee shop in Jocotan and got me and him some cheesecake to enjoy. We spent our evening watching a little Saints vs. Cowboy's football action before calling it a night. Not a bad way to end our weekend, huh.
I've got a crockpot of this BBQ Chicken on for lunch and looking forward to seeing how it turns out. I don't know how it will taste but it smells amazing!!! I'd better go and try to finish up a few things. It won't be long and Cruz will be home from school and then my day will get even busier, ha. Happy Monday Y'all!
