You know your in Mexico when... (Part 2)

I had to add to what Charlsie started,

You show up at least 30 min. late and you are the first one there.

You have to go to three different stores to get tortillas, bread, and milk.

You can buy a phone card, antenna for your TV, and floor mats for your car all at an intersection, while your windshield is getting washed... whether you like it or not.

Some of the best places to eat don't open till 8PM.

You can travel within 2 hours distance for about 20 pesos or $2.

You are never really in a hurry.

and my favorite

When relationships are more important than your schedule

Please feel free to add to this.

You Know You Live in Mexico.....

When your daughter holds up a My Little Pony and says "Donkey"

When you carry toilet paper in your purse because the bathrooms don't normally have it.

That's all I could come up with right now but I'm sure there will be more to come!

I know I KNOW....It's about time

As my cousin pointed out to me the other day, "It really is about time you updated your blog."
I have also been told by several other family members to update so I am finally taking their advice. I have come to realize that I will never be one of "those bloggers" you know the ones who update their blog every day, sometimes even more! Yes I love the feedback I get from the blog but just don't seem to have enough to say to update tooooo often.

I'll catch you up on our family. I am feeling much better and am 13weeks pregnant. The nausea is gone but I am still pretty fatigued. The belly is growing and I have been in maternity clothes for some time now. We checked in on the little person, via ultrasound, and everything looks good. We are thankful for that and are praying and believing for a wonderful healthy pregnancy and birth.

Michael has finally been able to get some rest after our 3 back to back teams. They were such a blessing as they treated peoples eyes, dug wells, and worked on teeth. He is busy scheduling teams for the summer and fall.

Micah and Maddie continue to take swim classes, Micah is swimming from point A to point B and really is a fish. Maddie's favorite thing is jumping into the water. She has no fear which of course can be good and bad. Micah is asking lots of questions now and some of them amaze me! Maddie just likes to talk and will do so really loudly. It is nice being able to communicate though!!!!

I suppose that is it for now. I will try to get some pictures up soon.
