Our dogs "Miracle" and "Max" are only 5 and 6 months old. They are learning so many tricks and have become such a part of our family.

Our children were excited when the Circus came to our town. It's easy to get the "valley syndrome" if you're not careful. Jon calls the "valley syndrome" the time in which a person gets stuck in a rut of doing the same things over and over and not knowing of what is outside of the valley that our town is in. There is so much more to life than what is in your small valley.
It was fun to go to the Circus together as a family. We enjoyed the clowns, acrobatics, monkey, tigers, jugglers, and more.
Time together as a family.....Priceless and precious.
The Puma Restaurant is by far the best in the valley. It's a special treat to go there. They have a heated pool and a playground for the children, as well as some of the best food and atmosphere for all to enjoy.
Our family took the Mexicans along with a Peruvian family to visit the Inca Ruins called "Sondor".
Our girls decided to lay on some rocks where the story is told of where they would have sacrificed things years ago.

Jon finds ways to interact with the Peruvians.
Pray for Billy who after salvation was getting a lot of pressure from his family to not participate with the church. He was wanting and receiving counsel from Jon, but became overwhelmed by the pressures from outside of the church and we haven't seen him in a few weeks..
Jon needs special papers still for our mini-van because of the tinted windows. It took him awhile to get all the forms prepared but ready to be submitted. The problem now is that the forms need to be submitted in another city four hours away.
Day of the Angeles! In the main downtown plaza they took a day to celebrate "angels". Each child dressed up in an angel costume and the band played different types of songs. Granted it is hosted by the Catholic church but I thought it was handled much better by the city than the other worldly methods. I happened to be going into town at the time of the celebrations and took some pictures.
The church takes the opportunity to run some fund raisers to raise money for the teens to go to summer camp. We ran one of the fund raisers by selling Nisha's home baked cakes (tortas) and cookies (galletas).
