So, it's been a month (how did that happen) since my last post. We've been so busy, work, school, homework, sickness, bad renters..it all takes time.
One highlight I have to share, a week ago Friday was a national holiday- Revolution Day!
All the kids dressed in period clothing and paraded though town. Lyle loved his costume so much that he has been wearing it for the last week, I finally had to wash it and it shrunk 2 sizes! He's heart broken, as he thinks it's the appropriate attire for any dinner invitation or restaurant outing. I guess we'll have to buy him another one.
On the Saturday after the parade the mom's hosted a fundraiser in the jardin. The mama's love it when I work these events, I'm an endless source of amusement for them- they speak no English and I speak ok Spanish so I just do what they say. My duty was selling juice and taking orders from gringos!
Wife and mother of a little boy. In 2007 we lived in La Manzanilla Mexico for 2 months and decided we wanted to stay. In 2009 we made it happen and moved to La Manzanilla. My blog started out as way to promote my website www.VisitLaManzanilla.com but has turned into a blog about raising a gringo kid in small town Mexico.
