Funny Boys!

We were visiting my parents for this week ( the boys are staying there for a little while). My dad was talking with Evan and asked him, "When do you go back to school?" Evan simply answered, "When we get out of summer!"

Later, mom was asking us if we wanted to go do anything, and wondered if we wanted to go on the free Budwiezer tour - telling Jared it's all the free beer you can drink! Isaac pipes up and says, "He's beer-intolerant - we're all beer-intolerant!"

Thanks mom and dad for letting the boys come and stay!!!

Our Cowboys!

Here are our little cowboys (future film makers maybe?!) Jared took them to Tombstone and to Old Tuscan last summer where the westerns are/were filmed. They had a great time and even made their own western flic.

"I didn't steal a horse!"

They are always spitting in those movies - I imagine it has to land somewhere!!! sorry Evan!!!

"So where are you now?"

"So where are you now?" Between traveling and moving, this is the question we keep getting asked - especially if we haven't seen you in a while!  Our little family has been here, there, and everywhere over the last few years!  For now we are happily settling back in Summerville, South Carolina - again!  We have had some grand adventures and experiences, and don't plan to stop anytime soon!!!  This past year has held a lot of "firsts" for us - Evan started his first year of school,  Isaac won his first pinewood derby, we went up the St. Louis arch, Jared took his first trip alone with the boys to Tombstone (Yes, this ment I got to stay home alone for the first time), Venessa took us to Dinseyland, Jared and I made it to Hawaii for our 10th anniversary, Isaac and Evan learned how to snorkel, I taught my first year at Trinity Classical Academy (this is why I haven't had a blog until now), Isaac was baptized, sold our first house.....    
We have had such a great year or so, and because we are a little late on the blogging train, here are pictures to share - mostly at the request of grandparents, but hope you all enjoy them!!!!

Caught the bug!

Finally!!!  We have caught the blogging bug!!  I just had to stay at my sister's house long enough to catch it!  So now that school is out for the summer, we may be able to keep this updated.  We are in Utah staying at my sister Rebecca's house - who has tied me to the chair to teach me how to  do this.  Once I stopped kicking and screaming - I think it will be bearable!  But for those of you who really know me - it took me 2 hours just to write this!  Ok - slight exaggeration. :)!! But now what!........
