Easter Egg Hunt

First thing Sunday morning the kids wanted to know if we were going to have an Easter egg hunt in the afternoon. The kids got the eggs down out of storage. Pamela and Ana after church stuffed them full of goodies. Then Pamela and Ana went to hide them. Although four eggs we couldn't find. I guess the kids will find them in the days to come. 
Olman and Josue enjoying their treats from their eggs.

After the Easter egg hunt I told all of the kids I needed a picture. Getting a picture with all of them together is very hard task. All 23 of them plus Korbin!!!
All of us at CdE wishing you a late Happy Happy Easter!!!!

Sewing class

The girls are getting sewing classes. About a month ago they had a weekend long of sewing classes. Some of the girls caught on better than others. Although the girls are super excited to be learning. This is the first of many classes they girls will receive. Thank you Donna and family for investing your time and energy to show the girls. A few of the boys even jumped in on the action and sewed a few stitches. When this is all said and done hopefully they will be able to make many things.

new swim suits

 During Holy week many people take trips to the beach, swimming pools, or the river to go swimming. The kids went and spent the afternoon in a water hole about half an hour from here. The kids were super excited as they got to try their new swimsuits that were donated a few months ago.
Even though we didn't take any "big" trip I still think the kids enjoyed their afternoon at the waterhole.

After 6 months of therapy and getting help Antonio graduated from the program he was in and is back home with all of us at CASA. The the kids are so happy to have him back home and all of the adults too. The boys had a party planned out for him. The boys with their money bought pizza and coke. Matt bought a cake that all of the kids got to share in the celebration. The pizza and coke was the boys private little party. They had the room all decorated and were super excited to have Antonio back home with them. 
Sunday morning we attended church with Antonio. They prayed over Antonio and presented him with a certificate showing he had completed his 6 months.
We are very proud of Antonio and how far he has come. Praying that he continues to stand strong in HIM.

belated birthdays

It's never too late!!! Happy very belated birthday to these two. Some how my blog for their birthday slipped by me. Any and Josue turned 6 the end of Feb. They are both in first grade this year. 
Josue excels with his school work. He usually can do all of his homework by himself. There are a few little errors he makes we make him correct them. Any on there other hand is slow and takes her time doing her homework and needs lots of help from the staff to make sure she is doing her homework correctly. We love you Any and Josue!!!!!!
Happy happy 6th Birthday!!!!!!!

It's really hard to keep everyone well here at CASA. When one kids gets sick it usually means there are a few more who will get sick.
Two weeks ago Korbin got a high fever and an infection. We got him on meds and quickly got it under control. Well a week later Olman, Yair, Any, and Lupe got sick too. They all got over it quickly except Olman. I took him to the dr last week and they changed some of his meds. Well he seems a little bit better but still is pretty miserable. And now his brother Josue is sick too. Fevered and infected throat. Also four of our staff have been sick. There also is a whole other handful of kids who have colds.
Hoping this all will pass soon. We are going on week three of the kids being sick.
Korbin is on his second round at fighting this stuff. He has a fever and is sick again.
Please pray for healthy kids. Hoping this too shall soon pass.
