We began our weekend with a trip up the mountain to lead Bible study in the village of Lagunetas on Saturday morning. Here are me and the boys in the car on the way there.

I took this video on the way back down the mountain to show a little of the scenery we get to see each week. It's beautiful! This particular week though we got to see it twice. Just before reaching the bottom of the mountain the family called to say that David had left his Bible bag there. That meant we had to turn around and drive all the way back up and then down again. Needless to say I enjoyed it a lot more the first time. ha
That afternoon the boys bought me roses for Mother's Day. Here they are giving them to me.
I love flowers!
We spent the rest of the day and evening at home not doing much of anything.
Mother's Day morning was festive. I found balloons, streamers, and cards waiting for me when I walked into the kitchen. We had heart shaped blueberry pancakes with bacon for breakfast. It's my favorite breakfast meal!

Each year the boys do a questionnaire for me on Mother's Day. Here are their responses this year. It blessed my heart to see so many answers that revolved around school.
Ben's sweet answers.

I never knew I could love so much until I had these two little boys. They are truly gifts from God.
David taught Bible study in the village of Nearar that morning and afterwards we ate lunch at the restaurant next door. I love their grilled chicken alfredo.

After an afternoon nap we spent some time next door at the pool with some friends.
Those same friends joined us that evening for another visit to the circus. That was a fun thing to do on Mother's Day.

I LOVE being a mom and I am so thankful God allowed me the opportunity to experience it. Raising these two boys brings me overflowing joy. They are precious to my heart and soul!
