4th of July and other stuff...

This Fourth of July, Heredes and I joined some of the FRC Doral team for a parade. It was so humid! It was about an hour walk, but we did get to pass out a lot of flyers for our Extreme Week camp in August. After the parade, we drove to Granada to watch my cousin and some friends play for a picnic. They did so great! When that was done off we went to the Doral park to pass out more FRC and Extreme Week flyers.
We had a great time meeting families and kids. I had this bean bag toss game and it was a hit! I have to give props or recognition to my husband, number one, for helping me and supporting me and to TWO special little girls that just rocked my world. Mia and Vicky- they are my little missionary girls. Mia is going into 2nd grade and Vicky is going into 4th grade and they passed out flyers and talked to kids with no fear and with such passion. Watching them share their faith by inviting a child to Extreme Week and church through a flyer was so encouraging.
The remainder of the day, we quickly packed up all our things to run to our car before the rain caught us. The ugliest storm brewed up- with purple lightning and grey clouds. We didn't see fireworks, but we did get to pass out lots of flyers and God's love and go home to shower and sleep.

On another note, I leave to Lima, Peru this Friday to do some training and meeting our Lima team. We had our meeting today and it is going to be so much fun. I am very excited to meet the team and work and grow with them. I also get to stay one extra day to see my family. Yayyyayayya!!! I am so happy and grateful for this opportunity. That's all for now.

Lima!! That's awesome. I'm so glad you get to see your family especially your grandmother. I'll be praying for you.

You should send your hubby to help Dave take care of the boys because I'll be in Orlando from Friday until Weds :). They can keep each company.
Have a blast!!!
