I Am So Behind Posting Here

I have been so busy lately getting a few websites up and going. Life just keeps on flying by! Here are just a few things that have happened since I really wrote last:

We went to our family reunion to the San Bernardino Mountains in California! This was so much fun! We went swimming at the pool and lake and played a lot of games! Below are some pictures of the event.
Jed went on his first waterslide!

We went to the Hopkins family reunion in Honeyville, Utah. It was so fun to see everyone there.
We also went and visited my sister right before school started in Idaho! That was fun!
School started!! Jedidiah started third grade and Elise started first. I can't believe they are getting so big.

Ian is growing so quickly He will be one years old in two weeks. While at the reunion he learned to crawl. He did the army crawl for sometime and now is up on his hands and knees. At his nine month well visit the doctor said he is a little weak (muscle tone) and we need to watch him. So I am anticipating he will not be walking for a little bit. He does cruise along the couch really well and he will sometimes let go and hold his own. Below are a few recent pictures of him.

Lauren turned three and three days later Charles and I celebrated our ninth anniversary on 09/09/09! Another number thing...Charles turned 33 on Sept 3rd and three days later Lauren turned three! We have some number things going right now!

We have officially started canning. Okay well Charles has! He canned 21 quarts of peaches in September and a few weeks ago he canned 21 quarts of applesauce! He did a great job!

Our last news is not great. We were suppose to leave for California yesterday for a river trip down at that Colorado river. We are most likely not going to make it. We are waiting for a final confirmation that Elise has the Swine flu! Yep H1N1! She has been wearing a mask for almost 24 hours now. If she has it she will wear masks for another six days. She will be contagious for a while! We are sad and disappointed that this has happened but I am so grateful she got the symptoms almost 12 hours before we were scheduled to leave. It wouldn't have been fun to be sick on vacation! Lauren doesn't quite understand yet. She keeps asking "When are we are going to the water?" or "When are we leaving to California?" So unless the strep culture they took comes out positive we will be staying put in Utah!

Great way to catch us all up to speed :) And look at all that canning, way to go! I'm so sorry about the flu, that is no fun, and a bummer about your trip. I love your take on it though, it's better than getting there and then finding out, being sick on vaca is the worst. Hope everyone is healthy soon!
