Cousin Mary made Rainbow Sherbet Punch that was so pretty! I didn't try it but Maxine did, hehe! Grandma was giving it to her and she liked it so much she tried to pull the cup to her mouth for more! She didn't get a sugar high or a tummy ache, just so you know.Raquel socialized with everyone and played all the shower games. Grandpa gave her a mini agriculture lesson in the vineyard. I took several shots of this. I don't want Raquel to forget these things.

A couple of weeks ago Raquel was chosen, along with one other preschool student, to lead the entire school in the morning flag salute. They were the first preschoolers to get this honor. Jose took Raquel to school that morning and asked her if she was nervous. She was SO not nervous of course. Daddy was pretty nervous, though! The video is pretty quiet so please turn up your volume to listen and watch.

I made a small batch of plain cherimoya, a batch of kiwi cherimoya and a batch of banana kiwi. I made several batches of other types of foods yesterday, too. We have a market nearby that has an EXCELLENT selection of produce at very low prices. Many of their items are specialties in cultures other than my own, I guess. I almost bought these miniature eggplant called Indian Eggplant. They are the size of a golf ball but obviously egg-shaped. Cute! I will buy them when I find a good recipe for them.
Raquel is doing fine. She is still her silly self but I bet you she really misses jumping on her bed and playing with the kids at school. Next week is Spring Break so she'll have a good amount of time to heal more before she goes back to school.
Thanks for reading.
