Getting ready and a few photos

The last couple of days our house have been getting ready for our trip. Tomorrow we are heading to Madrid from where we will get our flight to the States on Tuesday. Please pray for traveling mercies from us if you would think about it, and also for health.

I am sure I won´t be able to get in here until wednesday so I am leaving you with a few photos from the last couple of weeks hoping you enjoy them.

We are all excited, we are so looking forward this much needed vacation!!!

All of us in the Alhambra while the first group was here. Can you believe that I sat my purse next to the chair I was sitting in and then forgot about it and left it. It was a good 10 min before I realized I didn´t have my purse. I went back thinking there was no way that it would still be there, but praying it would. Praise the Lord there was a lady sitting in that chair. She said that as soon as she saw the purse she sat down to make sure no one would take it and got her husband to call security to find the owner of the purse.

I am not much of a hugging person but right there I hugged her!! I was so thankful praise God!!

My cute girls and me! Yes, I know today is Father´s Day in the States but here in Spain it was in March and I don´t have one of Matthew and the girls!

My sweet Noelia on friday! She is growing so much and she is sooo beautiful! Just like her other two older sisters.

This was taken on friday also right before her graduation, as you can tell :)

On friday night they had a little party. Nicole was suppossed to dress up like a cat. Her class was going to sing cat songs for the parents in the party. She even had a tail!

Nicole with some of her class all dressed up.

Havew a great day everyone and remember the giveaway!!!!

Such joy, I can only imagine the fun filled atmosphere as you prepare for your trip. My family has instituted a packing day, always the day before we leave (for outreach or back to the US) So, sweet one I will be praying for your packing day and all the days to follow.

Hugs from Costa Rica,

PS I love the book you are reading .... If you like A Woman After God's Heart you should get her Wife one. Both challenged me, but the wife one really shaped me into the wife that my hubby truly needs.

Great photos and the girls are beautiful. Keep on getting ready to go.

Hi Pilar,
I'm praying for travel safety for you all. I hope you are feeling better.
I'm sure there is a time difference, but God knows our prayers before we even speak them. So if I'm late, God already knew what I would pray for you.

I'm grabbing your button today.
Have a good stay in the states. More later,

Pilar, I know right now you're making the incredibly long trek back to the US with three children and are just exhausted, but I wanted to say thanks for posting the pictures...they were adorable. I hope you have a wonderful vacation.
