The kids are out of school this week to celebrate Semana Santa (Holy Week). It should be a fun week. We are in the dead of summer here, it has been UNBELIVABLY HOT, so we bought a couple of small swimming pools to help keep the kids cool. They are loving the water. In the mornings we are going to do craft projects to ocupy some of their free time. This morning I decided we would paint, they really had fun, but it sure did make a big mess. Nothing that couldn't be cleaned up with a few trash bags and some soap and water though.
