I know it has been a long time since I have blogged. Seems like when I got home from Brazil, the month of July was difficult for me. I lived in a bubble and didn't want anyone to know what was going on. We went camping several times and to the Oregon Coast to get away. We had a great time, but it didn't take the problems away. Soon after, I decided it was time to get a job and start doing something so I wouldn't sit and think about things. I started working at Purnell Law Offices in Meridian. I have learned so much in such a short amount of time there. There are never dull moments when you practice so many areas of law. (Family - Divorce, Immigration, Corportate, Guardianship, Civil, Criminal, Estates - planning and probate...and more) Gets intense at times, but overall it has been fun. The end of September, my sister LaNae called and asked if I would be interested in working for them doing all the scheduling, billing, and contract work for their alarm system business. I thought somehow I could juggle 2 full time jobs and still manage to keep afloat. I have done this for the past month and a half. I even recruited a friend in Nyssa to come help me with the security system stuff so it wouldn't too overwhelming. Both jobs have been a blessing in disguise and I'm thankful for a loving Heavenly Father that still cares about me.
Sarah started first grade and continues to love school. She is a great reader and does excellent work. She was recognized at the school assembly in September with the achievement award. She got her ears pierced for her 7th birthday and that has been pure drama!!
Sabrina stays home with grandma and grandpa, who are both retired. She is pretty self sufficient in most things so she is easy to take care of. She enjoys watching cooking shows with grandpa and playing crazy 8's with anyone that will play. She even taught grandpa how to play and beats him quite often!! She does preschool with my mom and is learning her letters and sounds.
Naldo is working in Brazil managing a fishing boat during the fishing season. He enjoys fishing and watching others learn amazon tradition. He caught quite a few big fish. I think his biggest was 18 lbs. It was a monster!! I know have a new record to beat!! :)
I think we are all up to date now!! In my spare time, I still sell hats and bows and do anything crafty. I have a new best friend I call Big Daddy - a 48 inch vinyl cutter. If you need vinyl cut, let me know!! I'm your girl!! :)
