Filing N-400 Application for Naturalization.

I finally sent my application for naturalization or the so called application for citizenship. It is about time that I need to apply to avoid any hassles in the future. I should done this a long time ago but I was slow and didn't think of becoming American till this day. I heard the application fees will increase every year, so I thought I would not wait any more time to file the N-400 form.

Most of my friends already have their American passports which is more convenient to travel. I remember my last trip to the Philippines - 2007 I had to wait in a long line to get through and that kills me especially when you have babies with you. It is a big difference when you travel with an American passport. Anyway, I am hoping that the process will go smoothly.

For more information on how to file the N-400 application for Naturalization visit the uscis .gov website.

Kids Gymnastic.

I can finally say that we get things settled after our three week summer vacation. My little girl is enjoying her first week in her first grade school and her little brother is always fighting to get up in the morning. He knows that we will take his sister to school and that makes him upset knowing that he has nobody to play with.

We enrolled them in gymnastic and it seems that they are enjoying every bit of it. Their desire for gymnastics started when we visited our folks in Alabama when they attend classes while we are there. It is a good thing for our children. We introduced several activities that might interest them and help develop their ability. It is also a good way to inter act with different children to gain confidence. For my children it feels like a new door of life has opened so wide. I can see the excitement in their faces and their smiles hold no price that money can buy. I know how much they enjoy the experience of learning.

I am Glad to be back Home.

There’s no place like home…an old saying; when a person is away from his or her own nest. I am so happy to be back home from a three week vacation; our annual visit to hubby's family. We arrived home safe and sound late Sunday. It was a very exhausting trip since we had a delayed flight, but we are lucky to arrive on time. It surprised me though because right after we got out from the plane it feels so much better knowing that in 25 minutes will be driving back to our own house.

My girl was a week late starting school. Plus bills are waiting to be send and a hundred emails that were waiting, and a house that needs cleaning. This was my thoughts that played in my mind while I was in the car headed home.

The first thing we did right after we rest was to fill up the pantry and buying school supplies for my princess. Of course hubby couldn't wait to cook so we had grilled steak for supper. He is not tired when it comes to cooking for his family, which is one of his passions. I still have a lot of things to do and it will take a few days to get it done.
