Día de los Niños

In Mexico, the month of May is full of holidays: Mother's Day, Teacher's Day, Worker's Day, Student's Day and, yesterday, Children's Day. Kids all over the country receive candy and gifts and numerous parties and celebrations are held. We made a special trip to Cartonlandia, where we give out the Saturday breakfasts, to give out chocolates to the children to celebrate this day.

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matt. 19:14)

May is such a bustling holiday month (except maybe where Dad -- Nathan -- lives.) I hope you have a lovely one!

Thanks for your good wishes. I kind of laughed when I first heard of all the holidays coming up - it's so different than in other places, where people seem reluctant to take time off. They're not just days off for the sake of having days off, though; they really celebrate important people or events, and I appreciate this just as much as the break in routine!
