Happy Father's Day to my Dad and Mark. I love you both very much and wish you the most relaxing/chillaxin day today! You both deserve it.

2 more days and we can all enjoy dinner together! YEA.
There comes that time in the life of every child.

You know there will be pain involved but as the parent, you also know the pain is unavoidable.

As much as you try to protect, guard and help.........there are still tears and that look on their face of "why me?".

That time came for Olivia today........

that's right, she learned to ride her bike WITHOUT TRAINING WHEELS!!!

She did awesome!

HOORAY...I have a stove! I have been so excited digging through my cookbooks because I can BAKE again.


poppy seed chicken (baked in the oven)
creamed potatoes (fixed on the top of my new stove)
and best of all....I made a turtle cheesecake (by special request from the family).

God is so good!

My little Claire is sick today. Poor thing......headache, nausea, no appetite, fever, and fatigue.

Don't know if we got the flu or what but whatever it is.....we want it to go away~!

On a good note, Olivia is officially on summer (or winter for us) break from school. WOOHOO!

We are super glad to have her home during the day.

Lovin' on my girls............

WOW....thanks to Mark, Marilyn, Morgan and Megan Black from Sheridan, Arkansas for the awesome box of goodies! It was Christmas in June. We were all so excited to get the velveeta, rotel, tootsie rolls, gravy, newpaper (I loved that) and all of the other great stuff.

You guys are incredible friends and we love you!

Un beso!!!!!
Here is the quick run down of updates:

1. Claire has an amoeba (don't know how to spell it) in her poo and I go tomorrow to see what we do about it.

2. Olivia is still in Uruguay according to Immigrations and has been since MARCH however she finishes first grade this week here in Argentina.

3. I still do not have a stove.

4. Mark, Claire and I got our temporary resident visas today. WOOHOO

5. Claire officially is accepted for kindergarten. I can't talk about this one because I cry everytime I think about my babies growing up.

6. Mark has GOLF CLUBS in the crate and my bicycle is still sitting in Arkansas because we had to prioritize our stuff. Ok, that one has nothing to do with anything else just had to get it off my chest.
