Los Griegos Del Burque

We would like to use the form of communication to reach out to the world as say "Hey, What's up". As the world changes we must learn to adapt without losing the beautiful things that make us who we are as a people. Adaptation without Assimilation.

It has been many months since our last update. We are doing great! I (Joaquin) just wrapped up my classes. I had two 20 page papers due. Needless to say it was a blast writing them. I just got back from Denver where I was helping my bro and his familia move from Kansas City. I had a blast cruising through Kansas with him to Denver. Nachooooooooooooooooo. They have such a beutiful home in Denver and now my Hijado will be able to run around in a cool yard. They will be driving up to Vegas for the Holidays in a few days. We are all going to be together wich will be awsome. I hope it snows.

Meriah and I are planning our annual X-Mas Paaataaaayyy. It is going to be off the hizzoook like always. We figured, we got a carpet cleaner, we might as well use it.

Love you all and see you all soon. Joaquin

Here are a few photos from our house. We have been working a lot on the yard. It is what keeps us sane these crazy days. We planted a little grass, our desert plants are a'blommin' and we built a raised garden bed. We have an aprocot, cherry and peach tree, tomatoes, chiles, radishes, peas, squash, gords and sunflowers. Not all in the same bed of course! We are enjoying our home with good food and even better company.

Don't make fun of our lawn!!! It is precious! Love, Mer

Good morning!! This is the first morning in a few weeks that I have ten minutes to write a little something. We (Albuquerque Community Schools Project) are about to present on our projects. I will present on the Santa Barbara/Maritneztown Learning Center with a special emphasis on the garden. Yesterday, I spoke about the New Mexico Civic Engagement. Next Wednesday, I will be speaking in Vancouver regarding The Chicano Mexicano Paradigm. Fun stuff. Meriah has been on the road for three weeks and after next weeks travel to Canada, I too will have 3 weeks under my belt. Maybe I will go to the doctor while I am up there!!!! No but serio, we love you all and we will post some pictures on our next blog conversation. Siempre, Joaquin

Dad even let us watch him throw some pottery!!! It was cool to see the Artist Formerly Known as "Dad" in action. He even sent us home with some cool pieces (He charges alot for them now!!) Mom worked wonders with her art with numbers...she did our taxes!!! Thanks Mom!!! Love you guys.
We are heading to DC tomorrow. We are so excited to spend time with Los Griegos de DC. We will take lots of pictures. Following that we will be in Philidelphia. Then JoaquĆ­n will take off to Vancuvor, BC for another conference. What a month!!! Love, Mer

Here's a photo of the lovely ladies at the COOL Conference. They cam back with lots of energy and tons of great information. We had a blast. Thanks to Mom & Dad for host a few of us. We enjoyed the home cooking and hospitality. The girls are working on some awesome projects to address poverty, hunger and traditional agricultural sustainability. They are truly inspiring! Love, Mer
