cinco de mayo

I had hoped that today I would be posting about my fabulous Mexican feast from yesterday. However, it didn't quite live up to expectation. I attempted to make homemade tortillas, and it was a pretty big fail. Sarah liked them (God bless my wonderfully non-picky child), but they made a horrific mess, frustrated the daylight out of me, and generally just weren't very good. I think buying tortillas is a perfectly reasonable option. I liked last year's Cinco de Mayo (at a restaurant, with live music) MUCH better.

On a different note, since I "told" on Natalie's bad behavior, I'll be fair and tell the good stuff too.  Every day, school begins with prayer, Bible, and a book to help children learn parts of the Westminster shorter catechism.  Big Truths for Little Kids: Teaching Your Children to Live for God Natalie is present during all this, and apparently a little bit of it is "sticking."  She frequently tells us, "God cares me!" or "God cares you!"  And last night while she was in the tub Nelson overheard, "Pray Mommy, pray Daddy, pray God, amen."  So there is a silver lining--and a pretty big one at that.  :)

Too funny about the tortillas! We make homemade tortillas very rarely - it's quite an ordeal with young children! :)
