Miracle of the moment

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog!! I'm glad you stopped by for a visit. I really miss you all back home and I'm looking forward to sharing all of the little things that happen in our family with you.

We had a great day. Little Julio had a pine derby race with this boys club that he is in. It's called Contenders for the Faith and it's sort of like boy scouts, but along with learning all of the "manly"things that every boy should know they also learn Godly character traits and have to memorize bible verses. It's a really neat program. All of the boys that are in his club are homeschoolers and they meet at our neighbors house every other Friday. The Dads teach the classes and they built their own pine derby race cars for their woodworking lesson. So tonight was the race. The boys had a race and then the Dads raced their own cars. My guys didn't do so hot but they had fun. Afterwards, the kids were given all of their pins that they earned for the year. Julio was very excited that he earned 7 pins. I am so proud of my little man!

On the way home we decided to go to this park near our house. There was a band playing there and it was such a perfect night that we just didn't want to go home. So we picked up some fast food, laid our blanket on the grass and had a wonderful time. The kids were hilarious. The band was playing country music and Julio, Marina and Michaela danced the night away. They didn't care who was watching them. Usually Julio is a little reserved, but not tonight! He was doing some moves that we never saw him do before and wouldn't you know it the batteries in my camera ran out just as they started getting really into it. I did get a few shots and I'll try to post them for you to see.

So, needless to say, we had a beautiful day. The Lord has blessed me with 3 awesome kids and a wonderful husband. I am truly greatful for all he has given me and I want to make sure that I take in every moment because I know that each one is a miracle. That's why I named this blog "Miracle of the Moment." My babies are growing up so fast and I don't want to miss a thing!

I saw your post on Angie's blog...I love the name you have chosen. I only have one little boy who is two come May 22nd and we have one on the way...but it seems like we brought him home from the hospital just yesterday. Impossible that my little boy is soon to be two! I know there are so many moments Im bound to forget but I try to cling to them all knowing I will want to pull those memories back out over and over when hes 20!
