Good news!! It looks like we will get to go to the Fuentes reunion. We will leave on Thursday evening when I get off work and come home on Sunday. That's the weekend when Brianne will be here. It's been quite a few years since I've gotten to go to a reunion. It will be great!

Then on Saturday we will be flying to Detroit where Marc and Candace will meet us and take us to their home (I hope LOL). We will come back home on Wednesday. It will be great to see them and spend some time with them. It's been quite a while since we've seen them. I love them and miss them.

What is your goal?

Benjamin Mays, mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King, said "The tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It isn't a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for." No matter how discouraging things may seem, in the world around us, or in our own lives, it's important to have a goal... and to teach our children to set goals. Then press on, every day, to reach them, supporting each other as you go.

Nat and Ling

We are losing our girls tomorrow(6/8/09). :( We are going to miss them. They are special young ladies. They have been a great help around the house. We don't have any dirty dishes. They do the dishes every day, they've helped dinner and even made dinner when mom couldn't. They've become good cooks. They are both friendly and outgoing. They've made a lot friends at school and at church. They've attended an english class with the missionaries and have learned more about the church. They learned how to pray. They even say the blessing on the food they prepare each morning. They have told me that when they get home they are going to contact the missionaries. I think I will send the missionaries to them. I've grown to love them just like my own family.
