Friday and Family

The school and work week has concluded.

Oldest Son did receive a 100 on his Mexico History test so he was very proud. I believe this week of exams all in Spanish has propelled Oldest Son forward in so many ways in both Spanish skills and life skills.

I returned to Mexico this afternoon. The scene right now:

Sitting on back porch with the sound of surf ...

Oldest Son reading Crane by Jeff Stone (4th in the series: The five ancestors). I brought it back this afternoon and he will finish tonight ...

Youngest Son deep into "play" with the ants ... his most recent fascination. He read me Inside an Ant Colony by Allan Fowler (Rookie Read-About Science) earlier this evening ...

The gecko is crawling along the wall making his distinctive chirping sounds ...

It is cool this evening and the ceiling fan makes a little breeze ...

SLAP! Oh and the mosquito just bit Oldest Son - always the jolt back to reality.

Nice to be with my family.

I am so proud of Oldest Nephew! Like his cousin he is so smart he's rarely had to study much. I know how you worried this week, just as we did when his cousin first had a class that required her to really study. This is a valuable learning experience that will benefit him for the rest of his life. Saludos!

HS: I often see his cousin in him -a look -the smile especially, the sincere, logical and intelligent way of speaking. This son definitely has the stronger Husband genes.
