Cleaning and scrubbing will wait ’till tomorrow, but children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down cobwebs! Dust go to sleep! I’m rocking my baby. Babies don’t keep. – Ruth Hamilton

Caio! (revised due to spelling)

We started off early in the morning and took a flight to NY. We were supposed to have a 9 hour lay over, but the airlines messed up (even though these tickets were bought 2 months ago), so most of us got on an earlier flight, and the rest came on another flight.

It was a an 8 hour flight -we had a lot of time. I sat next to a man from Rome and he talked a lot about his country and luckly had children. In turn, he was very forgiving of mine! Mack did alright and Avery was okay! They had major break downs on the flight, but Italians are really great with them.

When we arrived in Rome only 6 bags arrived (because we changed planes). So it is Sunday evening and they have still not arrived and no body here really cares:) The ride was about 4 hours from Rome and after 2 the driver pulled over for his break! haha that is why they are stress free here.

To get to our villa you have to climb a mountain with a one lane road (and our bus was huge!) we are on top of the mountain with an amazing view. There is a pool on the side of the house over looking the whole town.

There is no air conditioning because you can open every window and everything chills off. Last night it was rough with the babies, so we are hoping tonight will be okay. I will try my best to keep this updated! For now Ciao!

Having lunch (pasta and hotdogs)

We had nice local ladies prepare dinner for us-it was about 5 courses!

No clothes equals naked babies (p.s. did I mention we have a washer, but no dryer-everything goes outside)

He has fit in well

This out our front door

This is Avery after our flight-she made it! Whew!

She had to swim in a swiming diaper-and eat a peach

Will Write Soon!
