- I am a wife and mother of one, I am also a student of God's word, my husband and I have a 10 year old daughter Marisol. My husband and I have been married for 15 years and I fall in love with him all over again each day. I love to read, and am all about bible studies.

What happens when a stay at home mom goes back to work after 13 years? Chaos, my poor Marisol has gone from always being with mommy and learning from mommy on our own schedule. My husband was unexpectedly laid off from his job of 3 years, the whole reason we moved first to College Station from San Antonio, then back to my husbands home town of Yoakum. I first started working at a convenience store at night, boy was that a mistake! After years of trying to be kind to everyone I had to deal with people who were either drunk, stoned, under the influence of another drug, or just mean. I changed jobs and work a more normal schedule. Before starting this job however I was in a car accident, so I had to not only look for another car, but have had to fit doctor's appointments between work, which has proven to be quite difficult. I am now on medical leave, and freaking out about whether or not my husband's income from his part time job is going to pay all the bills. Like I said we now live in a life full of chaos!

Monday I started a bible study of 1 John, using the e-book provided by www.goodmorninggirls.org. Through this opportunity I have meet some wonderful women, who not only study the bible but pray for me and each other. I must admit I was skeptical when I set up my Facebook group page(www.facebook.com/groups/girlsofgod), I figured I would only have my friends be a part of it, I am proud to say that we now have 36 women of all ages and backgrounds. I am so excited to see what God has already shown us, and can't wait to see what else he has in store for us!

It's been a while since I updated my blog, life has gotten in the way as it most often does. Kenneth, Marisol and I no longer live in College Station, we now live in Kenneth's home town of Yoakum. Adjusting to life in a town where everyone has known each other since they were in diapers is definitely a new experience for me. I find myself telling Kenneth that he has to introduce people to me, because unlike him I don't know everybody. We are still homeschooling Marisol and plan to continue, it seems to work for all of us.

Hey Everyone! I must admit when Ken and I first came to check out College Station it seemed like we were in a different country. I have since come to enjoy the town and the friendships I am establishing. The people here seem a lot nicer and more laid back ( I guess they have to be, it being a college town). I am even thinking about transferring to A&M, sorry again all you Longhorn's fans. Kenneth and I have both decided we would not mind living here for the rest of our lives. Which is perfect since we both hate moving=) Marisol is thriving out here as well, and we have fun learning at home. It's nice to know that I don't have to have all the locks on my doors set all day, I can actually leave my door open and not have to worry about someone killing me. I can let Marisol play in the back yard and not have to be paranoid, and the best thing is that I don't have some young teenager thinking we all want to hear their music blaring as they go down the street. We will still be making trips back "home" occasionally but this is starting to feel like our real "home".

Kenneth, Marisol, and I are adjusting to our new life in College Station. Kenneth loves his job, Marisol enjoys having me teach her at home, and I am glad to have a break between classes.
College Station is treating us well, have already met some great people. Can't wait to meet more!
I am posting pictures of Marisol enjoying her new backyard and new room complete with new sheets she picked out all by herself.

Marisol and her cheerleading team had their first performance on Nov.1. The performance was held at the Arneson River Theater here in San Antonio. I hope you enjoy this video, all the kid's were so cute, I just wish we could have recorded all the performances.
