Vacation so far...


Since the children started their summer holiday, we have done so much to mention! We had a lovely sunny week and that was every day/all day outdoor activities.
I have had a bit of holidays myself as I refused to cook and we went out for dinner every day! That is the way!
We have had as well a fantastic time watching the London Olympics and we are now convinced that we would like to attend to the Paralympics games, soon after the Olympics. That would be so much fun for the children!
I have experienced the tremendous joy of watching Team GB winning 17 GOLD medals, placing them 3rd  - position  right after USA and China. I get the thrill of listening to the National anthem and I get so emotional, those athletes have worked so hard to get there and Gold is the recognition of their careers, making proud a whole nation. Well done Great Britain, I salute with so much respect!
* By the end of my blogging I was watching the men's vault and I saw the Chilean gymnast Tomas Gonzalez competing for my country; among the best, he ended up in 4th place and my heart went crazy... I guess I cannot denied I am Chilean at heart!

Desde que los niños salieron de vacaciones de verano, hemos hecho tanto que me parece difícil enumerar!  Tuvimos entre tanto una semana soleada, de esas únicas! Y todos los días hicimos actividades al aire libre. Me he dado también algo de vacaciones en mis obligaciones, y no he cocinado para nada, restaurantes y comidas para llevar! Así se hace pue’!
También, hemos tenido el mejor de los momentos viendo los Juegos Olímpicos y el equipo de Gran Bretaña ganado 17 medallas de oro hasta ahora, colocándolos en el 3er lugar después de EEUU y China. Me emociona oír el himno nacional inglés y pensar en todo lo mucho que han trabajado esos atletas para llegar hasta ahí. Medalla de oro es el reconocimiento a sus carreras, llenando de orgullo a una nación entera. Muy Bien Gran Bretaña, te saludo con mucho respeto!

Justo al final de este post estaba viendo el salto en el caballete y aparece frente mi, por la tele, el chileno Tomás González compitiendo por mi país, se me arrancó el corazón! Quedó cuarto desplazado  por la increíble actuación de un coreano. No puedo negar que mi corazón es Chileno!
























Sushi time.

Agenda para mis dos hijos y para mí. Debemos comenzar el ano académico muy organizados. El menor solamente tiene 5 y ya maneja su diario muy bien!

Agendas for my 2 children and myself.. we need to start next academic year very organized.

Even though is summer holidays, children still need to do homework.
Aunque estemos en vacaciones de verano, lo niños aún deben estudiar.

  1. Hi Lorybella, looks like you are having a fantastic summer. It must be so exciting to have the Olympics so close to home, what a privilege. I haven't been keeping up with it very much this time around, I've had a lot to deal with lately. But I will tell my hubby about the Chilean gymnast, he would love to keep up with that. GO CHILE!!!!

    Your flowers are beautiful, and as usual your children adorable. When do classes begin in the UK? My grandchildren start on the 15th of August ( for private school) and one of then starts the last week of August ( public school).

    Enjoy your little ones for what's left of the summer.
    Cuidate XOXO

    1. Well Angie, it really interests me the political/economical situation in the Middle East. From the Occidental perspective, one tends to put them all in "one bag", I get that a lot with LATIN AMERICA, when in fact are different countries, even though Latins. I guess is the same in The Middle East Arabian. It concerns me, Palestine and the injustice, and Syria fighting Syrians; really sad. I am happy that all is sound and calm for you and your family! xx
