As you can imagine from the photo below I was second guessing my idea to purchase Ben a Lightning McQueen stamp pad kit for his birthday when he came to me earlier in the week showing me what he had done. Obviously the idea of pressing the stamps into the ink pad and putting it onto paper was a little boring for him, ha.
Let me also add that it did not come off easily.
Cruz has been begging me to let him get his hair cut so that it will stick up. Many of the boys in his class have that hairstyle. Cruz calls it "fire hair". I am trying to postpone him as long as I can. One afternoon this week David and the boys were playing around and he styled their hair like "fire hair". They were both tickled and loved it!
I needed to pick up a few grocery items this week so we waited until late in the day to go. Our grocery store is inside a mall so while I shopped David took the boys upstairs to play on the playland and ride a few coin operated rides. They also played a few games and got tickets for their scores (like at Chuck E. Cheese). They cashed in their tickets and both picked a slinky. The idea was fun at first but it was short lived. Ben's lasted about 10 minutes before he tangled it up and Cruz's lasted about 30 minutes. I cannot tell you how many times we have untangled those two toys this week!!! I have a headache just thinking about it.

On Wednesday morning we headed to Tunuco Arriba for Bible class. We had 60 kids total that day which was great. But, what excited me most was the 16+ mothers who came and stood around to listen in. Many of them stayed for both classes which meant they heard the story, memory verse, and songs twice. How great is that! It was our best Wednesday there yet. Please continue to pray for the people in this village and the weekly Bible classes there. They do not have school this coming Wednesday so we will not be meeting but Lord willing we'll be back there on the 6th of May to share again.

Thursday afternoon we traveled to Muyurco to do Bible study. It's my favorite study of the week. I just love the sweet family that hosts us. They are precious! I had 16 kids this week learning the story of Moses.
Here are Cruz and David hiking back to the car. My boys love crossing the creek every week.
our delicious supperThey usually come served with a cabbage slaw on top and a tomato sauce but we asked for them plain because the boys eat them better that way.
But, before that we have a few other commitments to fulfill. I anticipate a lot of fun for our family over the next several days. I'll be back soon to share with you all about it.
