The road we are living on is under construction. How appropriate as our lives are also under construction right now. Every part of live is changing. Adam and Ben have been sick for several days now but are at the end of it. The big kids are also healing up from their coughs and stuffy noses and I am trying to fight the cold off. Because of this our plan to begin a normal daily routine went out the window! We have been managing the energy of the big kids while trying to let those who are sick rest. Our travel plans were also halted due to sickness. It’s is the unexpected pipeline we hit in the construction zone.
We went to a real Latvian Tex-Mex place today. I had potato pancakes and a delicious latte – very ‘Tex-Mex’. LOL Adam had chicken stuffed with something and a side of spinach/broccoli potatoes. Well, we will give them one star for even trying. Nothing about this place was Texan or Mexican. The food was good though!
In matters of heart, we are growing. It is easier in some ways than others. I did get to the book store and explained to the kids that books in Latvian are few in America and so we started a small home school selection of math, reading comprehension for the big kids and some Latvian for us beginners. The kids are understanding almost everything we say and big brother is translating more and more now for his little sister. Anyhow, I need to go spend some time playing chess with Ben. Atta for now!
