We also spent a lot of time outside playing. Cruz wanted to practice kicking the soccer ball. They also rode their bikes and played with their remote control car.
Here's a little video of them playing. They loved to pretend that the car was chasing them.
I also mentioned in my last post that we were having a Friday morning visit from our Ag partners Dan and Noe from Honduras. They spent the morning meeting with David and then we all went out for lunch at the mall food court. Over lunch we discussed an upcoming IMB Media Team visit that we are having next week. They are coming down to do a story on the Ag work in Honduras and also about our partnership with it. They will spend a few days here with us in Guatemala interviewing our family and visiting in the village of Lagunetas where we have an ongoing agriculture partnership project. They will then spend several days in Honduras interviewing and filming there. How exciting! I can't wait to see how it all turns out.
Ben, Dan, David, Cruz, and Noe
That afternoon we spent a lot of time on our community playground trying to burn off some of the boys energy.
Isn't that sky beautiful!!!
We grilled hamburgers for supper and then spent some time playing Uno.
Saturday was a lazy day for us. We all got up and got dressed as if we had somewhere to go but never left the house all day. We laughed when we realized that we had not even unlocked the front door from the night before until around 4:00 that afternoon when we took the boys out to play. Being lazy is not always a bad thing. Sometimes it's just what you need.
Here's a video of them on Saturday afternoon.

For our supper I cooked chicken and rice, English peas, and another pan of yeast rolls. I am trying out a few different recipes until I find one we really like. I made a lemon cake for dessert. After eating we played a few rounds of Dominos before putting the boys to bed for the night. Game nights are my favorite and we are trying to incorporate them into our weekends when we can.

I just love the smell of them baking in the oven!
David taught Bible study in the village of Nearar on Sunday morning. He took a missionary friend of ours with him to let him see what we do. The boys and I ended up visiting a local Baptist church in Chiquimula. We had asked another missionary friend about some taxi recommendations and were given two names of trustworthy people. I called one and they picked us up and dropped us off at the church. The boys LOVED riding in the taxi. Ben kept telling me "mama, this car is cool!". ha

I am definitely thinking that is something we will do more often in the future. They have a great class for the kids to attend and I get to sit still and be a part of a service. I left feeling very refreshed.
Our service went much longer than normal but David's Bible study ended earlier than normal. Because of that he was back in town before we got out of church. He slipped in and joined us. Afterwards we went out for lunch at Pollo Campero. Yum!
Well it's Monday, again. They just seem to keep rolling back around. We'll start our day off at the dentist getting our teeth cleaned. Who schedules dentist appointments for first thing on a Monday morning??? (I'll give you a hint- it wasn't me). After that it's grocery shopping and clothes washing. David will be back visiting in Lagunetas on Tuesday and then we have Bible study in Tunuco Arriba on Wednesday and Muyurco on Thursday. We are anticipating another great week and are praying God's blessings over all we do. Would you join us in praying for that? We would appreciate it!
