 Friday, May 16th  

Time just doesn't want to stand still, does it?  Today we are celebrating Joshua’s 11th birthday.  He asked for scrambled eggs for breakfast, homemade napolitana empanadas for lunch. potato soup for dinner and pumpkin pie for dessert. 

Here’s what my Thursday/Friday morning looked like:

2 pumpkin pies made (Joshua birthday dessert request)
30 empanadas made (Joshua’s birthday lunch request)
A big pot of potato soup made (Joshua’s birthday dinner request)
2 loaves of bread rising on the counter (to go with the soup)
24 cinnamon  biscuits made and a big bowl of fruit salad chopped (for Saturday’s breakfast with company)
65 shish-ka-bobs made (for Saturday’s lunch)
2 9x13 dish of mandioca made (for Saturday’s lunch)
Three party signs painted and tons of balloons blown up
Plans for a smashing baby reveal shaping up

House semi-cleaned, guest sheets washed and dried
Saturday.  We had a “progressive party” at our place with all of our rural team mates.  We celebrated another team mate’s birthday, Joshua’s birthday, and our team mate's baby reveal.
