He Is Here!

It feels like it has been 2 months since I last saw Kirk!
We could not get to the airport quick enough!

I was so happy to have him here with us in Argentina.
(after it took 3 days for him to get here)

Kira was almost as excited as I was to have him arrive.

Sergio, was just a little nervous!

Life IS GOOD...

It is hard to believe that it has already been 8 years since this horrible day.

One thing I have learned in the past month and a half that I have been out of the country is we as American´s LOVE OUR COUNTRY...we fly our flag... and we fight for what is right.

Today not one time did I hear...do you remember...

I will never forget that morning when I watched the 2nd plane hit while watching in horror on TV.

and never prouder than when that all the flags were flying...and churches across our country were full...and we as Americans were kind to EVERYONE.

I wish as we say...I will not forget...we don´t forget what we did the next day!
