We had a birthday party to attend on Saturday morning for a sweet little one year old boy who used to be our neighbor but moved recently. It was a really fun party with a lot of activity for the kids to do.

In addition to a bounce house and trampoline they had two four wheelers for the kids to ride. My boys loved that!
They even got to drive the smaller one.
As you can see from this video Cruz drove it much better than Ben.

Pili is Alfonzo's older sister and my boy's favorite friend. They have missed her greatly since she moved.

We left the party and then drove a few hours to pick up our homeschool consultant. She was here to visit a few families and encourage us in our homeschool journeys. She was able to answer some questions I had and give me some pointers and suggestions for the future. What a blessing it was to have her here with me. When we weren't talking school it was just fun having her with us for a few days to hang out and get to know us. I am thankful for an organization that provides us with such great support personnel.
We drove into Guatemala City on Tuesday and are getting some errands done while here.
The boys playing at a mall playland. They love this ball pit!
We all four got haircuts. The boys love sitting in these cool barber chairs.
