How do we fill another day in Colombia…
Then we headed to the park & God provided some free entertainment. First 2 boys were there with their remote control car & this kept our children´s attention for over an hour, until the boys ran out of gas for their car. Luckily by that time a large group of teenagers arrived & our kids observed them & their games (lots of capture the flag & freeze tag) for another hour.
We then headed home for lunch & wouldn´t you know that immediately after lunch there was a wreck on our corner, we have now seen a total of 7 wrecks on that one corner. I had 2 kids that were struggling to finish their food & kept on playing but as soon as Mami said, “you can´t go watch the wreck clean up until you are done.” The food was shoveled down fast. Sorry friends but yes this was about a 30min activity, the kids love to watch the police arrive, the clean-up, & then decide whose fault it was. Since it is a 4-way stop with no stop signs this always leads to some great conversations, usually the kids decide that the person with the ugliest car is at fault.
After Darth´s nap we headed to Del Rodeo, not for dinner but to play on the indoor playground. Don´t worry we ordered juice for everybody so we were not free-loaders!
Afterwards we headed to get some Chinese food for dinner, it was the kid´s first time to have it & they all ate it up, the only thing picked out was the steamed spinach.
After dinner a story, bible story, prayer & off to bed.
Praying that this time next week they are all tucked into their own beds with their church clothes laid out for tomorrow´s service at FBC! Get ready there is a van of kids headed your way!!
