Can you believe that we have been here 2wks! Today was great we left the house at 10am & didn´t get home until 6pm! Yep an ALL DAY outing & it was so great to be out of the apartment! We stopped by La Casa in the morning to drop off the pictures & sign some paperwork, as always they were lovely to our kids & the students were excited to see their amigos. Then we were off to Mount Monserrate. It was beautiful, I love how much my kids LOVE Colombia, they sing a sweet song about the ´bandera de Colombia´ all of the time & are so proud to be from this beautiful country. The view from the top of the mountain was spectacular! Our oldest didn´t get to enjoy it very much, he has become VERY disrespectful & unwilling to follow any instructions from Papi y Mami needless to say he hung out with Papi for the second half of the walk. But all in all it was a great trip. Then we traveled to “Old City”, also beautiful, full of history, lovely architecture and lots of pigeons. We had a Colombian feast for lunch & walked it off going up & down the streets of Old Bogota.
Prayer requests: our oldest is pushing every limit that is set, he smirks when he is being disobedient, he is disrespectful to all of us & fights every step to have things his way at all times. Please pray for his attitude but also for PATIENCE & UNDERSTANDING for Tyler & I, it is so easy to react out of anger & we want all of our reactions to be out of love & remembering where he came from. Please pray for mom, she had a rough day & spent most of our outing in the car, she is now running fever & pretty exhausted. We are still waiting to hear our next steps & pray for peace while we are here. Thank you again for all of your support.
