All about May

We have had a chock full weekend and I hope you enjoy seeing the pictures.
Friday= The first swimming/getting wet spree of the summer.

Enjoying the sprinkler.

Even Shiloh joined in the fun.
Saturday=A mother-daughter tea at church.

Franky sent mother the roses all the way from NJ!!!
She was thrilled!!!


Enjoying delicious food and fellowship with friends and family.
Saturday afternoon= Taking fun, normal and crazy pictures with Friends.

Lizzie, Esp and Bess

It may not be very ladylike to climb trees, but boy did we have fun.

Thinking and talking.

Springtime bliss = Swinging with a friend.

Pictures on the swing set.

Best friends

After taking soooo many pictures we just had to lie down and rest.
Sunday=Mother's day and church.

Violeta

Me, Damaris, Elizabeth and Esperanza

Me and my handsome cousin, Cristian

Me, myself and I

The children love having a swing set in their back yard.

Sunny days, big smiles, spring joys.

Havi, after I did her hair.

For mother's day we invited Abuela and Pablo for lunch.

Victoria was thrilled that I had curled her hair.

She did not want a picture.

Abuela, Aunt Chelin and Uncle Gonzalo

Now for mother's day I would like to share a poem that My mother wrote and that has been a great blessing to me.

~ Someday~

Someday I shall have
A house, oh so clean
Where all is in order
And my soul rests at ease

I shan't have to follow after
Picking up the dolls
Little toys and clothing
Legos, shoes and balls

There won't be so much noise
I'll read a book at peace
Without a single interruption
In concentration complete

I shall sleep the whole night through
Without a single one to call me
To complain of some pain
Or to climb in to my bed

I will not have to look
Under the little beds
And withe trembling, see
To what the Ants may lead

Someday I shall not have
My clothes all wrinkled an mussed
Because they climbed upon me
And made over me such a fuss

I will not be able to hear
The sound of little feet
Coming for the third time
To give me a loving kiss

O Lord hold back the time!!!
And help me to appreciate
The souls You've given me
To treasure and to love

I do not want comfort
If they are not with me
They are my gift, my inheritance
My company, my song

Thank you Father for my home
With it's joyous noise
For my wrinkled clothing
For my children oh dear Lord!
~Lizet Franco~
Happy Mother's Day!!!

Dear Reece-cup,
Thank you so much!!! The poem was originally written in Spanish and it makes me cry every time I read it. my mother has also written 2 other poems called"Voices"(I translated it and posted it on my blog last year for mother's day) and "A time that was" which she just wrote this year in honor of my sisters in law. I'm glad that you and your mother enjoyed it. Love ya'll!!!

Dear Christiana,
I have missed you too in these past couple of weeks. I really missed going to your house for the webinar.
Are you and your family going to be at the recital tomorrow night? I hope you all can make it.
Greetings to all
