Well, here we are in our 3rd month of marraige and we are still going strong:) We have been very busy lately it seems. Andy's business is still doing very well. It seems the more jobs that he gets, the more jobs he receives. People are so happy with the work he does that they are eager to send him to their friends. He is constantly learning more about the business and techniques. Lately, the santa ana winds have proven to be a bit of a challenge. Those are the best days for office work. All in all, he is working very hard.

Katie is still working at the Doctor's office. The commute has become a bit of a chore so she is currently in the hunt for a new job. She has a contract with a rubber stamp company, illustrating animals to be made into stamps. The first set is in production right now and should be ready for the market very soon. She continues to try to find her way into the children's book market.

We have just become members of a church just a mile away from our house. It is called Summit Ridge. It is a new church plant, so it is smaller, but that is one of the reasons we like it. We have been able to join a small group that meets on Thursday nights. That has been nice to meet new faces. Everyone has been very warm and welcoming.

The pictures that you are seeing are part of the opening night of the Ontario Reign. We were able to get season tickets to the new local minor league hockey team. Andy played hockey we he grew up, so it's always been a big part of life. Katie didn't have much to do with Hockey before, but she loves sports and this one is really growing on her. The arena is brand new and very nice. If your ever in the area, you will have to join us for a game.

Chongo is doing well. He takes frequent naps and eats his food. He likes to remind us that he is here by leaving his hair EVERYWHERE!! His new game is to not let us type on our computers while we are working by nudging and flicking our hands with his muzzle.

All in all we are doing very well. We miss all our far away family and friends. Much love to everyone.
