Quite the Wedding

Tia Elizabeth has been an awesome childcare tia at Casa de Amor II for at least five years now. We are so blessed to have her cheerful, positive attitude as she oversees all aspects of our kids' education. On Saturday, June 16, we were blessed to be a part of her wedding, an all afternoon (and almost all night) affair!

The wedding begins!

I teared-up to watch our two oldest boys (both soon to turn nine) walk in very first of the very long wedding procession and do their part so well!
Two of our volunteers, Johanna and Bobbi-jo, were bridesmaids

Most of these children (12, to be exact) were Casa de Amor kids!

During the 2 1/2 hour long wedding and civil ceremony, our kids were so patient - even more so than us adults!

I was curious to see how the day would go with so many children, and particularly so when it extended to more than 8 hours! However the kids did great and it was a fun time of fellowship, being part of Efrain and Eli's special day!
