We have made a new friend with in the past few months. His name is Freddy and he is from Del Carmen, Mexico. He is working as a pipe fitter in the small town near us. He goes to church with us. We pick him up every Sunday. I love talking to him. Well, I try to talk to him. My Spanish is really rusty. But he is very forgiving of my poor Spanish. With in the last three Months, Freddy has really come a long way with his English. He can carry conversations and he is getting better and better at understanding what we are saying. Here we all are after Church last Sunday. I love Little Cowpoke laying on the bottom. This wasn't supposed to be a "sexy" family shoot, it was just a regular family shoot. Big Cowpoke was trying to get in on "bringing Sexy back" too. Boys are so silly. Cowpokette really likes Freddy and Freddy really likes her too. He keeps telling us that he wants to take her to Mexico. I just smile and say, "No way Jose!!" Freddy just laughs. He loves her blonde hair and her blue eyes. He wanted a picture of her that showed her eyes, but it was way to sunny out. I will have to print one from a while back that shows her blue eyes. Freddy has six kids of his own. He said he also has three grand babies. Freddy is going to be going back to Mexico in a few weeks. But he is only going back for about three months. Then he will come back and work some more. Freddy is a hard worker and we will miss having him around. While he is gone I will have to get some Spanish tapes and listen to them. That way I can impress him with my eloquent speaking when he gets back.
