Sonidos Serranos

Sonidos Serranos: Sounds of the Sierras...
Reflecting some of my family's interests: God's wonderful creation (especially mountains and hills!), music, and language...

Psalm 121:1-2 (NASB)

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;
From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,
Who made heaven and earth.

Family Outing!

One of our favorite activities as a family, especially on special occasions like birthdays, is to take a drive, enjoying Uruguay’s countryside. One week ago the occasion that allowed such a drive was the wedding of former students in Paysandú.

These weeks of camp and prep for the fast-approaching school year have been intense. So we enjoyed the two days “away” as a family. We had hoped, on the way back to Montevideo, to stop by the Nature Reserve in Trinidad; however, the park was closed for remodeling.

We still got to interact with a coatí or two – or more – that eagerly climbed over the fence, hoping for hand-outs.

They’re so cute!

We stopped before crossing the Río Negro to try our hands at skipping rocks. (I got one to skip three times before sinking!)

Nature Boy was in his element...

We enjoyed the summer flowers along the way, including the ceibo, Uruguay’s national flower.

The little zoo in San José de Mayo was a highlight!

So were the playground and old construction machinery!

Days like these busy ones – and the ones that let us stop for a breath – make us thankful for blessings big and small...
