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.

Expo Prado 2017

Renting the upstairs of “The Mission House” – as it has been fondly dubbed for years now – can be an (almost daily) adventure, presenting both benefits and challenges. One of the benefits (from my perspective) is setting the goal of “getting away” to spend at least one afternoon per week as a family of (only) four. The demands of life, immersed in FEBU (the college project), mean we need to regularly make time to regroup with our own two Little People!

Yesterday we got to spend about four hours at the Expo Prado. (We missed going last year due to especially inclement spring weather!) But highlights this year included amethysts mined in Artigas, Uruguay's northernmost department!



The lambs are always a highlight!





A definite favorite was getting outfitted in firefighter equipment!



Educational tidbits on innovation were presented in tour format, featuring James Watt, Louis Pasteur, Nikola Tesla, and Grace Murray Hopper.


All children got gift bags that included pamphlets for review  and fidget spinners (a first for DJ)!


Fun stuff!
