a quaint little cafe that someone told us about. it was great of course, i had a sweet potato and pork sandwich and Nate had a Mediterranean pizza. He also got a cappuccino, amazing, and for desert i had a peach shaped marzipan, even more amazing than the amazing cappuccino.
the box that our new oven came in is a hit. We turned it into a small house for Sauvignon and he always invites me over, he is quite hospitable for a 14 month old. He also disappeared at snack time and i found him in his house eating...so cute! Why is it always the free things that they love the most...?
I now hate the color mauve, not that i have ever loved it. I think that Satan himself created the color to torture people here on earth. Nate and I have been painting and it was all going fairly well until we got to our living room. It was supposed to be sun dried tomato red, but it was not. So we decided to go with espresso brown and the accent wall is going to be sliced almond, an off white. The kitchen is a yellowy gold, always happy colors for the kitchen, and our bedroom is a light tan. I will put some better pictures up when its all done, but for now this is all you get.

Last night we went on a family date (that means that Savi came too). We walked about three blocks to this place called Quatro D. It's a cafe and heladeria (gelato). It was fantastic, really cute inside. Nate got the 4d, an espresso with vanilla gelato, and I got a coconut gelato to share with Savi. We also felt like a little something to eat so we got a grilled chicken wrap with spinach, bacon, candied pecans, and some unidentifiable vegetable ( i think that it was steamed broccoli stems). Needless to say, it was really good. We also get a caprese salad which was very tasty. I think that our family will be frequenting Quatro D... just try and say it... its so dramatic in Spanish, rather than just 4D.

the orphanage is beautiful. We were able to get quite a bit of work done, but unfortunately i had to leave a day early with Savi because he got sick. He was so happy when we got "home" though. He is really starting to feel comfortable here! Pray for our team because they are all going up again on Monday for a week and Savi and I will be staying back.

How amazing is my back yard? Every day when I look out my kitchen window I thank the Lord for how amazing He is. We are so blessed down here with this amazing apartment and an incredibly luscious back yard/jungle! God is so good and I am learning soooooo much in my classes right now. Don't we serve an amazing God? This week we are going down to the orphanage that the church has (about and hour away...in the sticks) and we are going to be putting the finishing touches on it AND studying the book of Joshua while we are the for 2 weeks.
