In the past few weeks......

My precious Isabel turned 7. She picked Cookie Crisp cereal for breakfast and McDonald's for dinner. We had cake at the park with some family and friends, and she also had her first sleep over with some friends from our homeschool co-op! Isabel is so full of life and joy and has such a strong faith in God. It is a blessing to be able to watch her grow up!

My husband became a US Citizen! After 17 years of being in the country he finally had his interview and was sworn in on Sept.25. We had a surprise party for him and ate gorditas and cake. Most people will never know all the miracles God did to bring him to that swearing in ceremony, but let me just say that there were many!

My sweet Grandpa who was so very special to me passed away. This was the first death I've had to deal with since I was in second grade and it has been very hard. He was seriously the best grandpa anyone could ever ask for. He was one of the most loving people I've ever known and I miss him so much already.

Way overdue highlights from our summer!

I know this is late but I finally downloaded our pictures from the summer and I thought I'd share a few with you all. We didn't do any major vacations this year but we did go to a few places like the zoo and the ocean.
