For those who think I have dropped off of the planet, I probably have. I have just been enjoying everyday now that baby is here. I will try to update photos and such, but it might be awhile as I will have to relearn how to post things once again. I shouldn't let it go so long so I forget, but coordinating everything is still a challenge for me and some days I am still in jammies til lunch or even later. We are as slow as molasses round here, but I will get better. We appreciate keeping updated through everyone else's posts so we will try to return the favor.

A quick glance

It has been forever since I last posted, and I really don't have a lot of time now, either, but I want you all to know we are alive and well. We spent all summer doing as many fun things as possible. We even went camping more than once this year. Now, that school is in session, we are still adjusting to schedules and trying to fit fun in. Don is particularly busy with officiating, but we are planning a little trip soon and hopefully it will happen. It seems either his calling or mine always seems to get in the way of trips that last more than one day. Emma and Ethan started piano with a new teacher and doing awesome. It is nice to have music in the house once again even if we have to travel beyond cross town to have it happen. Emma is not doing dance this year and I am still looking for something to involve her in besides reading. At this pace she will have read the entire library by the end of the year. Ainsley is enjoying kindergarten and would like to stay the whole day, but Linay is grateful she doesn't stay that long and enjoys meeting big sis at the bus each day. Soon she will have a little brother to bug and give her attention to. One day I'll take the time to give more of a detailed update. Til then, know we are alive and well and still going.

After trying to figure out how to fix Ethan's slideshow, I think I finally did it. I was hoping to change the pictures out an update, but as I lost my most recent pictures and time has been short, it will have to wait. Our latest update involves Ethan playing Cal Ripken baseball, Emma's DARE graduation, and her buckle fracture in her wrist. That makes it so Linay is the last to not have had a broken/bent bone. Hopefully she is too close to the ground that she will be least for awhile.

What? How?

I was looking at the blog and noticed a baseball picture included in the slide show of Ethan on the right. That is not one of my pictures. Then as I watched other random pictures have jumped in there. I am not sure what is going on or how as none of these are in my albums anywhere. Also, it is only on Ethan's. Weird. I will probably pull the slide shows in a day or two.

A sad tale

I have been meaning to post more pictures of our life and update everyone, so this morning I sat down and began to transfer pictures from camera to computer. When the transfer was complete, something happened to the picture software and I couldn't access anything. Also, the pictures were deleted from the camera during transfer so no backup and I can't redo it. So, my apologies, but any update will be delayed as I try to re-create some of the pictures...some unfortunately can't be recreated (Emma's dance recital). So, when you see pictures of Linay you can just pretend they were from her birthday...even if they are a week later. And Ethan's pictures will be of his 4th or 5th game, not the first one like originally planned. It is just one of those things you just laugh and move on cause there is nothing else to do.

I know we live in Idaho, and I am used to crazy weather. I must admit the snow this morning was beautiful and this afternoon most of it is already gone. I am getting ready to plant grass and finish cleaning up the leaves. I know Ainsley and Linay look forward to being outside as well.

So, tag we are it. This morning Don went out to the garage to go to work and noticed it was halfway open. Then he noticed that both vehicles had been "rifled through" and they had attempted to force open the glove box on the van which has been locked to keep my kiddos out of it. Normally we keep the van locked, but I guess Don forgot after his evening meeting. Nothing was taken that we can tell either from the cars or the garage. I guess they didn't want the lone polly pocket doll sitting on the seat. Good thing we don't have much of value.
