I can't believe another week has already passed. Our time seems to be going so quickly here. Amanda, who works with Kathy and Halle and is their neighbor, had a beautiful baby boy last Friday night. His name is Anthony John Guiterrez and he's perfect. Drew loved holding the little baby. I was really excited to be around to help with part of Amanda's labor and give some advice. She had a successful natural VBAC and was very happy.
Drew has made a habit of going to the preschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays for playtime and feeding program. He enjoys playing with the younger kids, but especially likes lunch time... a boy after my own heart!
The kids waiting to wash hands before lunch.
Our other big adventure this week was that we were without water from the city for three days! We took showers using a bucket and a wash cloth. Nick and Halle spent most of a day getting water from nearby in several runs of two 55gal bucketfuls at a time. It was long, slow, hard work, but we eventually had enough water to wash dishes and flush toilets. Still no "real" showers until the city water came back on the following day.
But at least they didn't have to get water like this guy...
And, in our "spare" time... we've been practicing our verbs in the library with Rosmery.
