Jared turned 30 yesterday! He spent his birthday studying, going to stake conference and oh ya, taking Eliza to urgent care....she managed to fall off the counter and slam her head on the tile. No blood, luckily no concussion, but man it looked like it hurt!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO A WONDERFUL FATHER AND HUSBAND...WE LOVE YA!
Talk about a blogging hiatus. Its been a crazy spring, I can’t believe May is just around the corner. I’ve had a lot of people (mainly outside of the
Jared got a call in March about transfers to
We found out a few weeks ago that the main contractor lost its bid and the transfer was for a subcontractor so the position was canceled. And so we stay put (which is a relief). Jared is tied to his job because they are paying for his Masters, if he leaves voluntarily he has to repay…. so we’ll be here at least until fall. It’s an odd feeling, waiting for the potential ax, but we have faith things will work out – they always do. We do our part and the Lord will do his.
Eliza started with a new speech pathologist last month and is making great improvements! It’s been a long road but she is starting to talk in phrases.
Ike is so close to walking. He likes to push things around the house and now can make it all the up the stairs and does fairly well coming back down.
My garden is in full swing and I have scored of little green tomatoes, can’t wait until June! We finally got our girls camp director last week. We have worked together before and I am really getting excited for YW camp this year.
And out of all of us Jared has the daily grind, Work, school, church, work. The highlight of his week is
Its a week late but we thought we would take photos of the kiddos in their Easter outfits....easier said than done. I don't think any one turned out great, but humorous to scroll down.
This spring we signed Erin up for city T-ball and she loves it (minus that her uniform is gray, talk about a drag). As un-athletic as she is, she has picked it up and has a great throwing arm.
Kallie G. and I took the kiddos out to Frogberg Farms last Thursday. It’s a pick your own Strawberry farm. Last year we picked way too many and canned who knows how many jars and strawberry jam. So this year I was excited to go, but made a promise to myself to keep my pickin’s to 8 lbs or under.
Erin and Eliza grabbed their buckets and started picking (and eating) and before I knew it I was loading over 15 pounds of ruby red strawberries into my van. So Friday was a canning day ; 7 pints of strawberry raspberry jam and 8 pints of cranberry strawberry jam. As delicious as it is I am so sick of it. Guess everyone knows what they will be getting for their birthdays this year
