Tuesday Letter....

Dear Boys, You will be the death of me if today is anything like yesterday. Please, be good!!!!! Dear Body, please stop hurting and get better soon!!! Dear Bek and Jeremy, I sincerely apologize before you get here for anything my boys may teach your girls. It's their Dad's fault! I also apologize for the little house we will all be crammed into.....it will be fun though. Dear Clinic, Please call me back saying my prescription for antibiotics is ready!!!! I feel like I have double pneumonia my back and chest hurt so bad! Dear Self, QUIT whining already!!!!! I'm annoying myself. Dear Husband, I am sorry for not being more sympathetic to your growing arm disease. It's yucky!

So Phil started playing on a Softball Team here a couple times a week to spend some more time with some of the guys. They won the game last night by one point but they are pretty good over all. Here are some pictures I took!

Dear Reuben, How I long for the day when you are past the fit throwing! You are wearing me out Goob! Dear Housing Office, Thank you for clearing everything up and getting me a house in two working days! Dear Husband, You might want to stop spoiling me before I start getting used to it!

Long time no post!

Life here in Washington has been BUSY! We had Ty and Shannon here for almost a week and then the next week a surprise visit from my parents! We are gearing up for Phil heading out and we are getting closer and closer to that happening. School is done for the boys this week and I am just as excited as they are to have some time off! We are expecting Bek and Jeremy next month (if they ever buy the tickets)!!! HINT HINT! I know they will be here but I'm a little anxious for it to be set in stone!!! THAT will be a blast! I have still been having a bible study once a week with two different ladies from the neighborhood. We are done until after Phil leaves. Then we are going to start up again with a new study. I am really excited about it too. We are going to do the ABC's of Christian Growth which I haven't done in a long time so it will be nice to do them again! I am also doing a study with my Mom long distance which will be good for both of us. I am trying to get the boys enrolled in sports this Fall. I know it would be a good distraction for them. We will be starting school up again in August and this year Jonny will be in 5th. grade, David will be in 3rd. grade, and Jesse will be in Kindergarten. It is shocking that I have three kids in school! It will be nice to be busy though so we are hoping to start wrestling then too. Jesse is going to be baptized soon and we are all looking forward to that. We are looking for a place to do the baptism and I will definitely post pictures. I have been terrible about taking any this Summer. We are on the waiting list for a bigger house on North Fort Lewis. We are tenth on the list and our lease is up on our current house the end of this month. If you could all pray we get a newer and bigger house before Phil leaves it would be MUCH appreciated! We definitely need some more space! I am planning on posting more regularly every week. I am working on doing the weekly letter, a Friday post, and probably one other day. It is difficult some days to have the time to post a long update but I think it will be good for me! Anyways, just thought I would update on our life since it's been forever since I was one here. You know it's bad when your sister-in-law tells you she doesn't even look anymore since you never post! I've been there for awhile now. Trying to snap out of it!
