So today we once again just hung out at the hotel. Josh's friend Kewin celebrated his 5 birthday today so Josh had a great morning playing soccer, basketball and golf with him. The sad part is that Kewin and his family left today for Bogota... we are thrilled for them but know that Josh will truly miss his new friend.
In the afternoon Jonathan and I took Josh to the gift shop here at the hotel to pick out a toy since he was so amazing during the Casa de Maria visit this week. Josh picked out a Monster Truck which cost 12,900 pesos which came out to about $7. I laughed because in the gift shop there are Thomas trains, but they're really expensive!
Today was an important day in Colombia as the new president, Juan Manuel Santos (no relation to our good friends the Santos family... hmm... or maybe?) began his term. Of course that, coupled with Medellin's festival of flowers and everyone's festive around here. We've had fun watching some of the festivities on TV... we were told it's much less hectic to watch on TV than to go in person. Either way, we do hope to catch some of the gorgeous flowers and exotic birds featured this week next week when we go to the Botanical Gardens.
Jonathan's doing great. He is feeling much better and his demeanor shows it. He's much happier and laughs and smiles ALOT! He napped this morning but took a short nap this afternoon. Because of that he was totally wiped out at 7pm tonight. Let's see how tonight goes. I had a hard time sleeping last night because the club downstairs had the music blazing and you could hear it through the windows. We've been keeping our windows open to avoid turning on the A/C because the Casa de Maria nurse suggested it would help Jonathan's respitory system heal better. It's not bad... it gets a little hot during the day, but otherwise the breeze is nice.
Well, I leave you with three videos to enjoy today. One is Josh making Jonathan laugh... we discovered that today while playing. Another is of Jonthan's "airplane" trick which also gets both boys going and the last is of Jonathan's walking progress. Love you all! Much love and blessings! xo
