The Monterroso Family

As I mentioned in a previous post, we have a wonderful family staying with us for the summer ~ the Monterrosos! They are originally from Guatemala, and have been living in Spain as missionaries for the past five years. Prior to that, they lived for a year in this very house, before we were here, of course. We have been having a wonderful time with them! Edgar and Rosa have three beautiful children: Sebastian~17, Isabel~15, and Sofia,11.










A beautiful couple!















Sebastian has been playing this for our home group worship times!













Israel just loved playing this drum!


















Last Saturday they made crepes for us for breakfast!










The Crepe Chefs, Sofia and Rosa




















Rosa enjoys volunteering to hold Israel when he is sleeping. :)
















The other day Fabio had a day off and so we took them to Fair Oaks Dairy Farm. Neat place! If you've never been there, I recommend it. It is one of the largest dairy farms in the country and they give a fascinating tour.








The milking carousel, otherwise known as the dairy-go-round....

Sebastian having an udderly good time.

So, if you dont hear from me on the blog too often, this is my current excuse! We've been having lots of fun and there is a lot of activity going on around here all the time... :)

We love Fair Oaks. Actually we are annual members! Don't they have the best ice cream!! All of you puns were fabulous by the way.
I can't believe how big the Monterroso's kids are!! They were so little last time I saw them.
Israel is adorable!! Such a roly-poly!
