It was a hot day in Asunción yesterday. The temperature was 99° and the heat index was 108°. (Apologies to family and friends in Chicago where the windchill made it feel like 5°!) We spent the morning playing in the backyard. They boys especially loved playing with the hose. Patrick pretended to be a “bombero” (or fireman). They also had fun with the water table and with the many matchbox cars in their “casita.” And someone was acting like a bear. Yesterday though, it wasn’t Patrick – it was Danny “being a bear.” He has started to imitate his big brother by putting his face up against a wall and growling. When Patrick growls into the wall, he follows up with, “Hey everybody! There’s a bear in here!”
After a busy morning outside, we had lunch while chatting on FaceTime with Aunt Maureen and her fiancé Jonah. The boys were excited to meet their soon-to-be-Uncle Jonah!
