Juancho in his 'Futbol' uniform - this is the child's version of the futbol jersey for the national Colombia soccer team - The Millionarios (Juancho's favorite!)
I like to call this shot - "Mami means business!" This is me counting up to 5, which is what we do if one of the children is pushing the limits. If they don't stop the undesired behavior by the time I reach 5 (cinco) then there is usually a punishment (time out, loss of privilege, etc.). Lucky for Juancho, he handed me the camera (what I had asked him to do several times) immediately after taking this picture...before I got to 5 (cinco). The kiddos are learning (sometimes through tough lessons...which we believe are tougher on Mami & Papi than they are on the children) that Mami & Papi will stick to their word and will keep the boundaries/limits that we have begun to identify for the children. They are coming along great.
Thanks for all your prayers, encouragement and support - it has meant a lot to ALL of us! Tomorrow the English tutor comes! I'll let you know how it goes!
