A Glorious Day

Today was one of those days that it would have been easier to stay in bed than face the world.  But that option was not available.  Karen and Dorian were leaving at 9:00 and I had to be at Casa by then. 

Because I forgot one of the gate keys, the kids and I were a few minutes late to church.  A few minutes after that, Matt and Nicole and the girls arrived.  They normally go to church somewhere else.  That brightened my day.

I soon found out that our Fernando was being baptized.  That certainly put a big smile on my face.  When it came time for the baptism, I found out that not only Fernando was being baptized, but Adonis as well.  Remember Adonis that used to live at Casa.  And Adonis' mother was being baptized.  The day had certainly improved.

There was a reason Karen and Dorian left early this morning.  After six months in a treatment center, Antonio was coming home.  Karen and Dorian were going to church with him and the preachers were going to pray over him before he left.  Everyone here was excited about his returning.

The other boys were so cute.  They had planned a welcome party.  Jose had save his money and planned on buying the pizza.  Yesterday, he lost his wallet.  Brayan bought the pizza.  They all spent their own money.  There was cokes and bread and cake.  Matt bought the cake.  They decorated their room.  They did this before and after church.

Karen said they would be back at 3:00.  Right at 3:00, we heard Dorian honking the car horn.  Everyone ran toward the gate.  I was so happy to see that boy.  The boys let Karen and I in so we could each take one picture.  And, then they shut their door and had their party.  Everyone got a piece of cake.

Congratulations Fernando and welcome home Antonio.
