Our Banana Mama

Our banana mama tree kept making babies but no bananas, so Dan had to cut her down. We should have done it a while ago, but it was hard let her go. Ethan had fun cutting the trunk, and then they all painted the leaves. The trunk is edible and the ducks were happy to have some too. Its amazing to see how perfect this world was created, making every part of it useful and necessary.

What she left behind

Beautiful Words

Back Outside

The evenings are getting more pleasant. The kids are more willing to go play outside. Its so nice to see them enjoy the little bit of nature we have right in our back yard.

Puppet Theater

It needs a little work, but they are having so much fun already.

Ethan was sick, and Bianca wasn't feeling well, which makes for a very loud and unhappy little girl.
That is how the weekend began.

Saturday was Chilean Independence day, so Sunday evening we had our empanadas.
I had mine with tea,the Americans them with coffee, and apple juice, weird.
We sat on the back porch watching our happy little girls looking out into the water after running around and enjoying the grass, the breeze, and in Bianca's words, the beautiful ducks.
It was a great end to the weekend.
