Well, It has been a very eventful year it seems. I can't believe we are half way through it. I am amazed at how fast the summer's here seem to fly by. We started school again this morning after our trip and a month off. The kids were actually excited to get after it again. We are going to go outside later and kill some bugs and find some things to look at under the microscope. I am sure they will be excited about that. Anyways, we are enjoying our weather and hoping that summer lingers a little longer this year. I am dreading another winter in Alaska. I would love to move to someplace warm and have a little bit of winter but have four seasons instead of just two. I am planning on getting pictures soon. I mean family pictures. I think it's about time. I'll post some when we get them.

Doesn't anyone post anymore??

Well, I guess I don't have a lot of room to talk. Things here are o.k. We're busy with the boys and life in general. Phil had to go to the doctor today for his back. He hurt it wrestling some drunk guy a while back and it is giving him problems. They won't let him come back to work with out a doctor's approval so he went in today and I will post when I find out what they said. Reuben is fussy today since his teeth are finally coming through. Jonny,Davy, and Jesse are giving me a run for my money today. I am tired and don't feel very chipper. I am sewing a little something for my oldest niece and trying to get my box out today. We'll see if that happens. Anyways, I had better get back at it. Love you all!!!

Well, we have been busy down here since we got here. It has been a HUGE blessing and I am always so glad to get away for a little while and spend time with my parents. Phil and Dad are out fixing the fish cleaning station so that it will drain better. Phil likes to be busy and help Dad out. We went Halibut fishing yesterday and had a lot of fun. I have been so busy that I forgot the camera and was bummed I didn't have any pictures to post. I will have to start taking some before we get home. We are going to the Russian River tomorrow and I am sure that will be a lot of fun. We were going to go stay in some friends Yert but decided not to. We are just going to get up early tomorrow and head out. Anyways, we are leaving to come back home on Friday. I wish we could stay longer but it just isn't possible. I have had a great time and we will see them for a few days in August. Well, I love you all bunches. Jenn

8 Years today....

Wow....I can't believe it's been eight years since Phil and I got married. It has been a wonderful journey and I am so blessed to call him hubby. We had a couple of bad years and many many good years. He is one of the most Faithful, Loving, Smart, Funny, Happy, Strong, and Amazing man that I know. He is always so helpful and if you ever need anything he would help you out. He is always wanting to serve the Lord in teaching and preaching and just general outreach. I am so very thankful that he picked me!! I am soooo very blessed and privileged to be called his wifey. Anyways, Phil's taking me to Pagoda tonight for dinner and his Mom is going to watch the kids. It has been an amazing 8 years and I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for the rest of our lives. I just thought I would share how happy I am to be married to someone soooooo wonderful. Have a great day everyone!!!

Well, as you can see I haven't posted in a while. I have been soooo busy with getting the house ready to show and just in case to sell. We put the house on the market on Wednesday and on Friday we had two calls to come see. We had a showing at five thirty on Friday night and one at eleven on Saturday. We aren't moving anywhere.....we're just hoping to build a place here in North Pole. We are looking for a piece of land to buy as soon as we sell the place and are planning to get it contracted out. We will rent a place until it is done. Everyone is doing much better and we are enjoying our summer. It has been extremely hot and we are enjoying that too.....well, most of us. You know how Phil gets when its hot....unless it's Hawaii....then he loves it!! Not much else to tell....we are going to my parents next week so that should be fun. I will post pictures on Shutterfly when we get back. Have a great week!!!
