Alright friends we are done with our lice medicine & hopefully done with lice while we are in Bogota (wish I could say forever!!). We woke up & again split the kids: girls stayed with Mami & boys went with Papi & Grandmom to the park. After I was finished with the girls I let them watch a chick-flick while I did laundry & dishes. Tia Sara is going to be happy to hear that they were both enthralled with the “Swan Princess”.
Then came the boys, Darth headed for a nap & instead of going to the park big girl asked if she could play a card game with Papi at the house. When I was finished with the boys they watched “The Sword in the Stone”, the boys loved it! Not as much as Peter Pan but it was a close second.
After lunch we all bundled up & headed back to the park to play in the arena, Grandmom brought new toys & the sand pit was filled with castles, cakes, roads, tons of stuff. Afterwards we decided to eat out for dinner & tried a new restaurant serving hamburgers & fries. I am sad to say the our oldest daughter was the only one who finished her hamburger but of course everybody loved their fries with salsa de tomate.
All in all it was a good day. Our oldest had a great day, most times I feel that his actions are only surface level & not in his heart, so I pray for his heart & for a purity to find him & his actions. For our oldest daughter I pray that she softens her heart to our family & allows us to be her parents. She still sets up boundaries for protection & will allow us in but only so far, it will come, I just pray that she is open to the change. Our middle son is having a hard time following directions. He is not mean spirited but hasn´t learned when it is time to stop joking & finish the task at hand. He has a sweet spirit but is a pleaser. I pray that he finds confidence & security in his new family so he can be himself. For our youngest boy, he is pretty naughty, he can throw a terrible tantrum with the best of them but he can also melt your heart with his precious smile. I pray that he finds discipline & self-control and learns how to control his temper. Darth is pretty much a stinker, she is incredibly defiant & fully embracing the terrible 2´s. I pray that she learns how to follow directions & be kind to others.
We are waiting but we are finding a rhythm in our Colombian way of life. We pray for good weather & family moments. We look forward to beginning our lives in TX.
