Two posts in two days!!!

Today we had a lovely day! First a wonderful breakfast at the hotel then hours of play on the grassy lawns. Lunch and a little shopping. And THEN we met up with our friend Elena and went to her village, to her house. We met her family and tried on (and bought) some traditional outfits. Her mother, Juana, mom to TWELVE, is the same age as me. The oldest son is 21 and the youngest girl is 3. I cannot even imagine. Juana is beautiful, warm, and welcoming -- as are all her daughter. She told us that she only wants to have 2-3 children and that her husband is content with that. I think she knows how much her parents struggle to care for the twelve.
