I'm back!!!

Sorry - life got very busy and the house we are in has a few bugs to work out. We've had the house rewired for the 'luxuries' of life now. The previous owners didn't have digital tv or high speed internet. And when we signed up for it through COX, they had to completely wire the house. We had 2 wall fishes and wires everywhere along the outside of our backyard eaves as well. . . . but we have it all now and hopefully no glitches!
We are doing great! Dakota was recently baptized and Jonathan turned 9 yrs. All the kids are out of school for the summer and excited for many things!! First, that they have a house with a pool - it's been used everyday since we moved in. (Geoff loves to take a few laps in the late night alone.) Second, because they are attending Entz Elementary next year and already know who their teachers are and who in the neighborhood is in their class. Maddi is excited for 1st grade (I'm not sure how I feel about my baby being in school all day yet! Bittersweet!) and Kylee is excited for her last year at elementary and being one of the "big girls" on campus in 6th grade! The boys are just excited to be able to ride their bikes to school. My kids just get bigger and bigger everyday and it's fun to watch but frightening how fast it happens. Geoff mentioned at dinner tonight that we could be 10 years away from being grandparents. That's just too close to reality for me! WOW!
I'm off to bed now. Must teach in the morning and then off to rehearsal in the afternoon. I will update tomorrow of other fun things! Goodnight!!
