This week has been pretty amazing! We have been truly blessed with a lot of answers to prayers, and it all just happened to come in the same week!

First off, yesterday we found out that we are having a baby boy! When the ultrasound tech asked if we wanted to know what we were having, and we said yes, the first thing she said was "well, there is definitely outdoor plumbing". I knew what she meant but could tell Vito had no idea what she was saying so I had to say "So we are having a boy!" and then Vito replies with "Its a BOY!?!"It was pretty funny. He measured a bit big so they moved our due date to July 19th! Vito is ecstatic we are having a boy so he can start building the Qaqa rugby team.

The second big news is that Vito got hired as the AYS manager at Marriott! He has been working very hard trying to move up at the hotel and finally he got promoted! Now with his new job I wont have to worry about working when the baby comes! We are so excited and I am so proud of him!

Our last big news is that we have finally gotten all of our finances in order so we can apply to build our own home! The program is called mutual self-help housing. You are grouped with about 6 other families and you all help each other build each others homes. We are hoping to build in Saratoga Springs. If all goes as planned, and we get accepted, we should start building in about a month! We are so excited! Below is one of the many house plans we get to choose from!

Life is starting to move forward and we are looking forward to what the future has in store for us!
