School mornings can get a little crazy around here (as I am sure is the same in most all households around the world). In the middle of the busyness I had to stop and smile when I walked into the boys room on Monday morning and found them sitting on the floor "reading" a book together. What a precious sight it was to this frazzled mama's eyes.

Later that day we worked on a St. Patrick's Day craft. We made hats for them to wear.
The bedrooms in our current house do not have closets. I have been trying to decide what to do with the boys clothes. After looking around for something to store them in and not finding what we wanted we ended up having a local guy build something for us. We were not expecting it until the end of the week but he called on Monday afternoon and said it was ready. He delivered it to our house and I spent some time that evening filling it up.

Instead of a hanging bar I had it built with all shelves. I figured I could get more in there that way. The bottom shelf will hold their shoes but hopefully not always in such a messy fashion. ha A girl can dream, right?
Tuesday we celebrated St. Patrick's Day. I knew the team would be with us most of the day so the majority of our celebration was over breakfast.

After eating we all dressed in green and took our family holiday picture. It's my favorite thing to do.

my sweet boys later in the day.
We changed from our green because the team was coming and we didn't want to all be dressed alike for our interviews. ha Most of the day was spent with the media team.
We ended our holiday night with a pizza supper at the food court in town.

That afternoon we traveled to the village of Muyurco to lead Bible study.
Here are some of the precious children I get to teach each Thursday afternoon in the village of Muyurco. I just think I have the best job in the world.
I've developed a head cold/ chest congestion that has me feeling lousy this morning. In spite of that I have a million things to get done over the next few days before I leave for my trip. Today I'm washing laundry, making David some sanity notes (ha), and getting my clothes packed for Lima. I'm excited about my trip but feeling a little anxious about leaving my guys behind. It will be a great week though for all of us. But before I leave we still have the weekend. I'm going to be sure and do my best to make it a fun one for our little family before I go.
