Every Saturday afternoon, the oldest kids from the Baby Home and I go to Horita Feliz (Happy Hour). The kids LOVE it and look forward to it every week. The tías try to use it as punishment ("Hannah won't take you to Horita Feliz if you keep acting like that!") on Saturday morning and the kids freak out if they think they might have to stay home. As I will be traveling home to the States this coming week, today's Horita Feliz was our last until I get back. Carla Booher leads the women's class and we have been reading in the Bible about Noah. She asked me to come up with a craft for this week (she knows I love them!), so we made our own Noah's Arks. As a treat, I also made rainbow cupcakes to remind us of God's promise made to Noah (to not destroy the Earth again like he did with the flood). It was a fun "last" Horita Feliz!
Dressed and ready to go! It's always hot when we leave the house, but cold outside by the time Horita Feliz is ending… I've forgotten to bring jackets for the kids for the last several weeks but remembered today… And wouldn't you know that it didn't get that cold!

She kept saying "Beli, saca mi foto… foto para el face!" ("Belinda, take my picture… a picture for Facebook!")
He loves snacktime after Horita Feliz!
Although you can't tell from the picture, he really wasn't so happy about having to eat that banana… He wanted his chocolate milk!
She did so well this afternoon!
We finished off our snacks at home and had a few babies join us!
