Sunday, July 31, 2011: Hi Sam! Time flies doesn’t it Princess? I am so sorry. Before we know it November 10th will be here. 3-years since your abduction. Suffice it to say, we had a great day despite all this. We spend most of the day painting shoe boxes. I forgot how fun that was as a kid. We painted ‘Samy Stadium’ out of one box for you. In it was a soccer game when you opened the lid. You loved it! It was a lot of fun. With the two boxes you painted houses for a couple pieces of painted bread that went along with a handful of painted grapes used as eyes. It was absolutely adorable.

You also taught me the “egg game” where we tried to take plastic eggs away from one another. You were funny and cleaver with your strategy. Then we climbed into the hammock Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) had stolen from me. You fell asleep on my chest for a brief moment. The cackling chickens waking you up after several minutes. It was a moment I will cherish forever. I long for more them.

Oddly enough I receive a text message from Adriana at 4:20PM. At the same time she called the house three times to see if I was still there. In her text she tells me she misses me and asks how our day went, but when she called she never asked to speak to me. Read into that what you will.

I LOVE YOU SAM! KISSES!
