The weather is still a little wintery for April. We’re getting our playset next week and we’re ready to use it as soon as we get it! Jeff and I are way more excited than the kids are. Today we picked the details for the basement; the paint colors, carpet, tile, wood, etc. We’ll have the two boys downstairs, and we’ll keep the girls on the main level. We’ll have a playroom, a school …

I added a link for Holly’s blog. She’s a midwife who is in Africa right now adopting three baby girls. Check it out. Her story is truly inspiring. Our children pray every day and night for the midwives in Africa, and also for the children who suffer so much for lacking the things we take for granted–a loving family, security, health, a home, food.

Julian and Magali are so sensitive! Juli asked today when he was going to see his guardian angel, that he could hear him in his mind. I told him that was the Holy Ghost, guiding him to do right. Isabella gave Magali a little stuffed pig, and she has been treating it like a baby!!!! She named him Wilbur Princess (of course), and sung it a lullaby to go to sleep. We’ve been practicing “Mary’s Mantle” at bedtime, and Joaquin has been sleeping better. I sure think that the song singing and scripture reading at night help them relax and invite “their angel to come guide them through the sleepy starry land” (just like the lullaby says).

Coco had another class today, and he’s improving by leaps and bounds. Luckily one day he’ll stop running away. Areli is losing all her hair! She still has a lot in the front, but the back of her head is almost bold. Talking about Areli, yesterday a mom from Juli’s soccer team called to cancel the practice because it was so cold, and she asked for my baby’s name. She said that her sister-in-law was from Mexico and she was Areli as well. I told her I have a good friend whose sister’s name is Areli. We started exchanging info and it turned out we were talking about the same person! Aline’s sister! What a small world! And that same morning Aline had call me all the way from the United Arab Emirates!

Well I’m going to go. Are woke up. Every time I get ready to post someone wakes up or gets sick or something. Maybe I’ll get another post this week.
