We moved!

I am so excited to post that Friday, June 25, 2010, was the huge moving day! We relocated our mobile home to a new unrestricted acre of land. We are exhausted by the move, but excited to have our own little piece of paradise. I have to admit that I just LOVE IT! The air is much cleaner, there is not much noise other than the night crickets and other insects, and the neighbors are superb!

We had a tough day on Friday and, unfortunately, we lost one rabbit due to the stress of the move. Lucky for us the rest of the rabbits and babies are doing well. The temperature is high, but the fans and the a/c is working well for added comfort of rabbits.

I will post pictures once I have them. I will not publish our new address as I am still concerned about our rabbits and our safety. I just am not as trusting as I was before.

I hope to be able to post often once I get settled and relaxed. Only problem is I don't have high speed internet in that area. The cheapest way to get online will be dial-up right now until the subdivision improves with high speed internet services.

Happy Fathers Day

All my 16 children gave me a wonderful surprise on Friday. Since our children from work are heading to the Circus on Sunday, they decided to celebrate Fathers Day early for me.

16 children, yes, 14 from work and 2 at home. What can I say, I'm blessed!

Moving time

We are slowly beginning the moving process. We will be relocating to our new acre next friday and there are so many things to do! I am excited for our "new beginning".
We have been so busy, lately, that I've not been able to post much. However, I hope that once we get to our new location I'll be able to post often, I hope.

I'll see if I can post some pictures of our place, soon.

My first time riding a horse!

Okay, I've been learning Equestrian Therapy, though I do not know how to ride a horse, yet. Thursday was my day for riding Sunny the Horse. Well, it was great using the techniques I've been working on. I see now how difficult it is for the children to control the horse, but it was a great experience.

Martin & Curtis Graduate from High School

Martin graduated from High School today, June 4, 2010. We had the best experience ever! I am extremely proud of my son! Also, Curtis, my "other son" graduated, too, so this was one of the best experiences ever! Below are some pictures and videos. Notice that I am not too good at taking videos with my old camera, however, it is nice to have something to brag about. :)

Visiting my lovely Mother, Tomasa

My lovely mother, Tomasa, has been recovering slowly, but surely. She is demonstrating such strength and will to live and I just love her SO much. It was hard seeing her in her darkest moments, but seeing her now full of live and vitality is such a blessing. She is slowly gaining weight, though she is losing all her hair. She handles it well, though and has a great sense of humor. She continues to undergo dialysis 3 times per week and is such a trooper. I love her so much and I only pray that I have her strength as I grow older.

Martin all grown up!

I am so proud of my son, Martin. He turned 18 on the 20th of May and will be graduating from High School on Friday, June 4, 2010. Words cannot express my excitement. I have been blessed in my life with so many things, but the best is having two wonderful, handsome sons that always keep me going. I don't know what my life would have been with out these two "piggies"--as I lovingly call them. They are truly the apple of my eyes.

We celebrated the events with my parents down the Rio Grande Valley. I was so excited to see my mother doing better and in good spirits. Martin received lots of gifts from his tias (Blanca, Rosie, Lupita, Delmit and Bengie) and as you can see by his huge smile, he was having an awesome time!

Update on our babies

I haven't had time to post, lately. I've been way too busy to blog; however, I was able to take some pictures of our babies, they are now 6 weeks old and look great. Can't wait to sex them and see what we have.
