Pero, últimamente el mundo de los blogs ha cambiado y aunque aún se encuentran buenos blogs para leer muchos de los que yo solía leer han dejado de existir, o al menos, una vez al año lo actualizan, otros son privados y en fin, son muchos los cambios. He notado que el cambio mayor se debe a Facebook ya que muchas han decidido contar sus historias allí. Yo entiendo que es mucho más fácil escribir una oración que toda una historia y eso no se le quito a nadie por que cada uno sigue sus gustos.
Aquí yo puedo leer y ver las anécdotas vividas durante los pasados años. También tengo la opción de imprimirlo y hacer nuestro libro de memorias pero más aún, puedo vivir las experiencias de otras personas mientras leo sus anécdotas diarias. Por eso, el blog seguirá siendo mi número uno.
Approximately three years ago by coincidence I started this blog. It was by coincidence because I was simply searching on the Internet ideas that would helped me with my task of being a mother of twins. It was fascinating to arrive to my first blog (McNulty Quads) and to read and see the things that happened to this parents of quadruplets. From there I found many other blogs in the which the mothers shared their daily vicissitudes and then I started writing mine. I have learned many things through these years in the world of blogs and inclusive, I have had the good opportunity to make friends in spite the fact that we have never seen our faces, ha ha. They have been there when I need an advice, a prayer for the health of a member of the family, to make me laugh, in short, in good and bad. I thank them for being there when I need them although is just through an e-mail.
But ultimately, the world of blogs has changed. Although they are still some good blogs out there to read, many of the ones that I used to read have been gone, or at least, they are updated just once a year. Others are now private blogs, in short, thare has been many changes. I have noted that the greater change has been because of Facebook, since many have determined to write their stories there. I understand that is a lot more easy to write a single sentence than a whole story. I am not against this because each one has it's preferences.
Here (in the blogs) I can read and see the anecdotes lived during the passed years. Also I have the option to print it and to do our memories book, but more still, I can live the experiences of other people while I read their daily anecdotes. Therefore, blogs will continue to be my number one.

Last week both girls received their progress report of last semester. Thanks God, they approved all the skills they gave to them and had an excellent behavior.
Sofi and Pao, daddy and mommy are very proud of you.
It is so exciting to see how well they work and that they love to learn (which they continue the same way during all school years).
Side note: want to document how they are writing right now.

Lunes: fue feriado
Martes: rutina normal de escuela.
Miércoles: las clases fueron suspendidas debido a la falta de agua. Sofía me dijo que los baños estaban bien sucios.
Jueves: la alarma del reloj no sonó a tiempo y por ende, perdimos el día de escuela.
Lo mejor fue que pude pasar todo el día con mis tesoros jugando, viendo televisión, leyendo, en fin, lo pasamos muy bien.
Hasta el momento mañana será un día normal de clases y aún no tenemos nada planificado para el fin de semana, así que ya veremos que ocurre.
Our week was not spectacular, on the contrary, we have been very tranquil.
Monday: it was holiday
Tuesday: normal routine of a school day.
Wednesday: the classes were suspended due to the lack of water. Sofía told me that the bathrooms were dirty.
Thursday: the alarm of the clock did not went on time and therefore, we lost the day of school.
The best of this was that I was able to spend all day with my treasures playing, watching television, reading, in short, we had a great time.
Up until now, tomorrow should be a normal school day and we still have not anything planned for the weekend, so will see how it goes.

Ahora, esperemos que nuestra semana también sea tranquila.
Weekends like this are the ones we truly need most often. Friday the girls no school due to a teachers' meeting. So in that way we started a weekend where tranquility and spending time at home were the order of business. The tasks done during the weekend consisted of sleeping late, patio cleaning, brief house cleaning, fixing the bath, talking, reading newspapers, watching television, board games, laundry, ironing and spending quality time in family. Certainly, we did some tasks but nothing that could take us away from this relaxed and tranquil opportunity.
