Our Up and Coming Jedi

We took Pedro's cast off and his arm appears to be all better, thank goodness. I think my regular maid will be back later this week. Even though she tries to sell me crappy, overpriced sheets, I still like her. For now.

Pedro felt so much better that he picked up light saber and started dueling with his brothers.




We are all about Star Wars these days; it's kind of an obsession at our house. It's pretty much all Julio (7 years) can think about, talk about, or draw about. He is constantly quizzing me (and anyone else who will listen) on Star Wars characters, lines from the movies, colors of light sabers and other topics of which I know very little about (I only ever really cared about Han Solo). It's a quality that I really love about Julio-when he is excited about something, it becomes his whole life and his enthusiasm gets us all involved.

I even had a dream the other night that I was pregnant*; in the dream some man touched my stomach and said, "You are caring yet another Jedi Knight". :)

*No, I'm not actually pregnant, but if I were, I am quite certain that it would, indeed, be another little Jedi

Go, Pedro!! Of course he feels better now that he can wield a lightsaber again. I mean, who wouldn't?

What a hilarious dream!

Pokemon, Transformers, and Star Wars take turns dominating my house. I would definitely take that dream as a sign!!! kidding.

Oh, that dream made me laugh!

I miss Jackson's obsession with Star Wars. He still loves the movies but he doesn't really participate in Jedi Training with the cousins when we get together anymore.

What handsome boys you have! :)

In the second picture, Pedro looks so cute and proud to be playing with his brothers. I'm glad his cast is off and he is all better. :-)

LOL. My boys go through various obsessions also - and I have to know as much about them as they do or we can't have much of a conversation!!!

Dear Gabriela,

I am glad that Pedro and Guapo are doing fine. How are you holding up with so many Holidays and this amount of rain in this city??
Yes I am here and I am working even if it is a local holiday.
