Been Here 3+ weeks!
« on: May 05, 2014, 03:47:51 pm »
Well I finally got around to paying the $165 Immigrant fee's today! We have been super busy. I enrolled the girls in school and they LOVE it! They have started in Kinder and 2nd grade and we are going to hold them there in the fall as well so that they can hopefully start speaking English soon! Well the girls have had a lot to get used to! For instance, we have power 24/7. The first couple of days they used to say we had a VERY GOOD inverter. When we were getting ready to wash clothes, we put the clothes in the washer and the youngest saw the water coming out of the washer and said WOW, THERE'S ALREADY WATER IN THERE! In the campo my mother in law has one of those Japanese washers where you have to put water in it with a bucket. My husband is amazed at how much people eat here. For easter we had a get-together at my sisters and everyone took lots of meat and rice and beans and tortillas and chips and A LOT OF DESERT! he couldn't stop talking about how the barbecue was on the whole day! lol. Another thing my husband is shocked by is that people keep coke's in the fridge. He went with my cousin to help set up a trampoline yesterday and they offered him a coke, he's like people around here have coke, beer, juices in their fridge all the time! Grocery shopping is also new for my hubby and the girls. In the campo they eat by the day so it amazes him that our fridge is always full. The weather is North Dakota is super cold, but the girls are adjusting fine. My husband on the other hand will not take his sweater off until it's time for bed. I introduced my hubby to Garage sales and he LOVES THEM! It's spring cleaning here in town so a lot of people are throwing out old TV's, desks, motors of all kinds and lots of other stuff so we're having fun going around picking up junk. He's in shock that people throw out good things. I taught him how to say "CAN I TAKE THIS? FOR FREE?" haha Over all we're all settling in very well. It was hard for me to get used to having people living with me (i'm a neat freak) but my husband has been super helpful. Overall we're all super happy because we are finally all together like ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY!  :domrep: :2faws:

I am so happy for you Clary. Its good to hear that everything is going well. During the summer you should put the girls in a summer camp. They can make friends, experience American culture,  get out of the house and learn English.

Clary, I wouldn't worry so much about summer school. It won't help them that much language wise. It took or son who started in 1st grade about 6 months to pick up English. Within a year he had even lost his spanish accent. Since then, no one has the slightest idea that he is from another country.

  :-\   I am mum.  :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

No wonder Pablo wants to come and live with me so fast. You don't give him anymore attention. Too many changes in his life. He needs someplace more stable.
Thats it. I sending him a ticket on the sunrail for this weekend. I will wait no more. :yeah: :yeah:

It's so new they probably still have no rules yet and can't say a jackass can't ride it. I will buy 2 seats for him so he will be comfortable.


Clary, I am still waiting for you and your family to visit me one day. You can spend the winters with me, and the summers in North Dakota.    :luv:
We will all have a great time. I promise.  :banana: :banana:

LOL about the yard sales. My husband loves them and has a calling in life to drive men nuts over his obsession with coffee mugs!!!  :mur: He's obsessed with coffee and has like 123490871234 mugs. Each time he comes back from a yard sale, he has a new mug to add to the collection.  :slap:

^ :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: That's AWESOME!

I kidnapped 2 boxes worth of them and hid them in the garage. Guess what he found this weekend?  :mur:
