Yesterday started at 2 a.m. for my cinnamon roll making husband, Rudi! Yep, you read that correct TWO in the morning! It was the beginning of a very busy day for all of us. Rudi made over 100 cinnamon rolls to be sold at the Saturday market off of Avenida America. The locals here will know which market I am talking about!
We had decided the night before that I would go with him, along with Myles, Clancy, Clara, and our guest for two weeks, Joseph Lawrence. Emily would stay home with Ruth and Paula. We loaded up our truffi with all of our stuff and headed out to the market around 6:45ish.

After we got everything set up, we left Rudi to man the booth and went down the street to the SIM Annual yard sale. We ended up being down at the sale during the "rush" time...oops, sorry about that! I did find shoes for all three of the children we are adopting though, so it was worth it!!
We ended up selling out around 11 a.m.!! Thank you to our "extranjero" friends for stopping by and saying hi and supporting us! We think we sold somewhere around 80 cinnamon rolls, because we sampled out quite a lot. Not the best income for eight hours of work, but it could build with time! We are selling the cinnamon rolls for 6 b.s (.85 cents) each. A little less than the $3 we get for them at our coffee shop at home!

While he was gone, I scurried around doing some general clean up and also making a stew that could sit on the stove and cook while we were gone to the Horita Heliz and then to a piano recital after that...whew... I told you it was a busy Saturday!!
As you all know from previous blogs Saturday is our big Horita Feliz day. This particular Saturday we celebrated the upcoming Mother's Day here in Bolivia. There were at least sixty mothers present for the special time that Gladys and the H. F. Team had prepared for them.

~~~The following pictures are of the group that made a wall hanging, from Miriam's key verse in Exodus 1, to be given to the ladies. We got together and made them them the week before on a Sunday afternoon. We had a great time making them and I think they turned out really nice. There were four different styles, all designed by Emily. We glued the verse to some heavier colored paper and then put on a ribbon for them to hang from.
