It was so peaceful in the mission, and the walls are covered with Saints and Angels. On the picture above this sentence is the Virgin Mary, who appeared near the Mission long ago. We bought prayer candles and set them under her statue. The Mission is a functioning Church that has mass and also a Christmas celebration. We intend to go back at Christmas time.
This is a statue of Saint Frances. People will place small milanos, pictures, even jewelry on his blanket.
The mission is a parish for the Tahano Oodham people. Seeing the lovely mission was breathtaking.

Every morning the kids have swimming lessons, and we are spending time at the library too. I even took them both grocery shopping the other day and they were so good and helpful. I'm having a good summer.
