Just a quick update to say that I have spent most of Friday and Saturday entertaining Ludi and Jadzia while Yoli prepares cakes for Leya’s quinceañera.
We have passed the time playing lots of pretend, reading books, watching a couple Baby Einstein videos, playing Mr. Potato Head, doing jigsaw puzzles, cooking, sweeping, and getting the girls’ clothes thoroughly dirty.
It has been very, very cool these two days. Long pants have been necessary. We didn’t bring any jeans for Jadzia, so she wore her pajama pants.
Friday night we attended a chapel service at El Jordán which was very good, and Jadzia and Ludi went with the kids to their classes — so, a brief respite for me! They did well in their classes and got to eat some cake (for someone else’s birthday).
Saturday was much of the same, Yoli working on her cakes, etc. But as usual, Leya’s party (which was supposed to start at 2 p.m.) ran very late. Her mom didn’t get around to picking up Yoli and the cakes until around 5 p.m.
Right now I am here in a small, crowded internet cafe with one girl in my lap and another in the stroller. We went to three other cafes that were all full. It’s been an interesting day. Hope all is well back home!
