Bash's first day of 2nd Grade

Today is Bash's first day at Timbers Elem. as a 2nd grader. He was so calm and collected despite all of the chaos, and I unexpectedly was too, when I realized that he was like "Mom, I got this....." It's going to be a great year!

Mark, Leti, & Alondra's visit from Florida

We had such a wonderful visit with my brother Mark, his wife Leti (and baby on the way), and my niece Alondra. After staying in Corpus for a few days they stayed with us here in Houston. Bash got to swim with his cousin and went ice skating at the galleria, and we all got to catch up after almost two years of not having seen eachother. I love you guys and cried like a baby when you left. It was awesome having my "big brother" around! We rented movies, went to dinner, joked, and laughed til we couldn't stand it. It was a pretty scary time for me because it was really hitting me that I was not going back to Corpus any time soon and Houston is my home now, but having you all here comforted me because I know my loved ones will always be there when I need them. The Lord works in mysterious ways.

Baby Ririe "Craisin"

This is the latest image taken Aug. 7th of our lil one. Sebastian and I are convinced it's a boy, but John says he still can't tell. He was kicking up a storm and waving at us during the ultrasound. You can see his lil foot to the left and his hand in motion.
