Well I baked it, pureed it, and have used it this week to make some delicious treats.
Cruz on his last morning of school
Here's Ben wanting me to take his picture too
When school ended we picked him up and drove into Chiquimula. We stopped there for lunch on our way to Guatemala City.
my boys playing at McDonald's in Chiquimula (look at those socks!!!!!)
We arrived late in the afternoon just in time to unpack and get settled in before our colleagues David and Glynis Miller arrived to join us for supper. They brought food to us and we ate at the mission house together. Afterwards we had a little team meeting to discuss work. I didn't get a picture with them but we had a great time together.
Despite going to bed much later than normal Cruz was up at 5:15 on Friday morning. The sun was not even up yet! It gave us plenty of time to eat, get dressed, and head out the door for the morning. Our first stop was at the dentist for him to get a filling. It was his first time to have to get a shot and as you can imagine it was not a very pleasant experience- for any of us.
Here he is getting loved on by his little brother after seeing the dentist.
So, you can imagine his response after we left the dentist and he asks "where are we going now" and we have to tell him "back to another clinic to get a flu shot". Yes, let's just have a moment of silence to make up for the lack of silence that I was hearing from our car at that time. ha It was not pretty.

Me getting my flu shot (and trying to look brave for Cruz). I do not like shots!
We stopped for an early lunch and let them play a while before heading back for naps. We were all needing one.
We took this family photo that afternoon at the mission house before heading out again.
Just look at that sweet smile. He's a mess y'all!
We made a run to Pricesmart to pick up some supplies. We take our boys with us everywhere we go. When there's no one to leave them with that's just what you have to do. But, if I've ever made it look easy let me just assure you IT'S NOT! There are days when I feel that my stress level just can't get any higher. One of those days was yesterday.
He is becoming such a big boy!
It's now Saturday morning and we are getting ready to pick up a mission team from FBC Mt. Pleasant, SC that will be arriving shortly. We are looking forward to a week of serving together with them. We covet your prayers for us over the next few days as we share Christ in the village of Chanco. Thanks!
