We picked up Chuy's for dinner last night.
My dinner dates.
We've had some cherry tomatoes to pick for the past two days.
We have some larger tomatoes that are still green.
Sydney picked two of our largest ones (that weren't ready to pick)
last night and threw them on the ground.
I'm going to have to keep that girl away from the garden.
Potty Camp is going well.
Today started with a few more videos.
Sydney was interested as well.
What are the chances of me training my 15 month old while we're at it?
I'd rather not have to do this twice.
Amelia is awesome at #1.
She has it down.
Took herself to the potty 8 times today.
We had another chiropractor appointment today as well -
she wore panties and had no accidents.
#2 on the other hand.
Not there yet.
She was so upset with me after I threw away her princess panties last night.
I refuse to clean #2 out of panties. *gag*
She was threatening me with telling her Daddy.
All the while, I tried to keep a straight face.
We ended the day with a new cookie recipe that didn't turn out.
So we'll have to try a different recipe tomorrow.
Because baking and potty training go hand-in-hand.
Not sure how many days this will take but I'm hopeful she will catch on to
the #2 thing soon.
And then we will celebrate like we've never celebrated before.
I'm not even kidding.
Potty Camp can be tiring.
This is how she fell asleep tonight.
I found her smashed between the bed and bedside table with her head under the bed.
It's 10:45 PM in Costa Rica.
We just FaceTimed with Alex.
They had a late night tonight.
He's really enjoying his time there.
My nephew shared his testimony last night
and a young man around his age
As Alex shares stories of his day, I can tell he's falling in love with the people there.
He has really enjoyed talking to the local pastors.
To actually make your way to one of the churches, you hike at least 2 hours in the rain up a mountain and then the church is on the other side of the mountain. It was a tough hike.
One of the pastors said they have many members that hike like that every weekend to go to church.
Just to worship with their brothers and sisters in Christ.
He then asked Alex if his church members would do that.
I'm one of those members he's asking about.
And I have to admit - there are a lot lesser things than a 2 hour, muddy hike in the rain, up a mountain that keep me from going to church some Sundays.
The next time I think of why I can't/don't need to go:
TWO HOUR MUDDY HIKE IN THE RAIN UP A MOUNTAIN, PEOPLE.
Good grief, I'm spoiled.
Change my heart, Lord.
I can't wait to go back with him on one of the next mission trips.
Tomorrow is their last day in Costa Rica and then they'll travel home on Friday.
I can't wait to hear all about it and kiss his face.
Love to all,
