    SATURDAY SÁBADO

  • Suddenly it is summer, and suddenly summer is flying by. I know it must be August because our annual fun filled invasion of our little people has just occurred.         

    Ah, yes, changes are occurring. It is a different world out there to this old lady. The preteen girls sit quietly on the couch, each with an Ipod in hand, playing games while it rains. The rains let up and boom! They are out the door, playing hide-and-seek.
