In the past several weeks, we have had the pleasure of several of the older girls coming by our house and the visits are getting more frequent. They act quite shy but they come and sit on our porch and just spend time for a hour or more at a time. Janet just turned 17 with her daughter Helen now 6 months, Myra is 16, Chelly is 15, and Delmy who is 12.
We invited them over the other night to introduce them to s'mores. It was a little mess but was enjoyed by all..
Also pictured is Paquita, the young girl who lives with us and help me with the household chores and Kelsey who has joined us thought the beginning of July via the mission minded agency www.missionnannys.org. She going to be working with our kids on several skills; writing, spelling and Spanish as well as going through the parables of Jesus. They kids love them both and they are enjoying the extra attention.
Johanna is seen here with Abby on her lap and Paquita has Jaelle.
Here is the work we have been putting in this month.
