Hi, everyone! We've been having problems with our computer for about 2 months now. I am not able to upload any pictures, so that's my excuse for not updating our blog. I know that it's not always necessary to post pictures, but I like doing it.

We are all doing well. Briana starts kindergarten tomorrow! I can't believe it! She will be 5 on September 2nd. Michael just turned 7 on August 1st and will be entering the 2nd grade. I can't believe that, either! I will only have my little Alexa at home with me. (At least until Thursday when I start babysitting my friend's 2 year old daughter!) Alexa is 18 months old now. Talk about growing like a weed! She's getting so big! She is into everything! She's a very busy little person. I love to hear her laugh. She just brightens my day! I am so thankful for the husband and children God has blessed me with. Too often I take my family for granted, and I'm praying that God will help me to cherish them and every moment He gives me with them.

Speaking of family, I am very excited and proud to announce that on Friday August 22, 2008, my Dad was sworn in as a United States citizen!!! He came to the U.S. from Lima, Peru on August 17, 1972 when he was just 20 years old. 36 years and 5 days later, he stood with his right hand over his heart and pledged allegience to the American flag! Praise the Lord!

Thanks to all of you for checking our blog. I know it's been a long time and I'm glad you haven't forgotten us!
