Hey there

The last few days we have been out of town. We went to Villacarrillo, a couple of hours away from where we are, to spend a few days with my sister and her family and my dad. We took advantage of them traveling so close to us to go and see them.

I am preparing a post about Easter here in Spain, Catholic Easter, funny (not so funny) fact about Spanish Easter, catholic easter that is, is that is called Semana Santa "Holy Week" and goes from Palm Sunday all the way to Easter Sunday, but almost everyone considers Semana Santa to end on Friday. Easter is not really celebrated.

Until then though, I am going to share some family photos from the last week. Enjoy them!


When we were inside the Alhambra, there were some people resting in this "bench" area (this one was american). They were all taking naps there in the sun. Noelia was concern about this one. She kept going and watching him, I wonder what was going on in her little head. We were all laughing because she was so funny. Everyone sitting around were also laughing and taking photos of her.

Noelia checking on that man is too funny! You can almost see her leaning over looking into his face to see if he's okay...so cute!

Looks like you guys had a great time....we were wondering where you've been the last few days!

Love the last picture of you and hubby!

I'm with you on the time management thing. During homeschool, I actually have to shut the computer down. I have found that if we stay focused on something, it will get done better and faster. I am also taking a try at the Flylady agenda. Have you seen that? And... making chore charts for the children-with pictures for those that cannot read. I am continually looking for new ideas to be a better wife and mommy for the Lord.
