Having Mike's mom here has been nothing short of a miracle from above! She is so helpful and ready for any challenge like the Bodegona...which is our grocery store of sorts kind of like a miny target but please don't imagine the one on 116th street. Think of things like chocolate sauce near light bulbs and really really weird lunch meat. We are starting to get the hang of cooking here but not exactly. It's really better to buy certain things at certain places. Like bread from a bakery, and meat from a butcher shop kind of thing.

Good morning Melissa, Gavin, Nadia and Nancy. I went to the blogspot and I Love the pictures. I have to figure out how to get the red, white and blue family picture downloaded to Walgreen's so I can make some copies for family. I hope you all are having a great day, we finally have some releif in the weather. It has been 10 days of over 90 and high high humidity. Today is beautiful and dry. The first time we have had our air conditioner off since we have been home. You know that is a record for your Dad! Aunt Debbie is very excited to come there, we went to music under the stars and she was talking about what to pack. I miss you all so much, hang in there you are doing a great job Nadia and Gavin are beautiful and are thriving happily, you are a great mommy. I had special prayer for you all yesterday at church with Pastor Chad. God Bless you and bring you home soon. Lots and lots of Love mom.
