Welcome, Emma Grace

Katie delivered at 5 pm yesterday. Lovely Emma Grace weighed 5 pounds and 15 ounces and was 19.5" long. Mom, Dad, Baby and Grandparents are all doing fine. I'll post a picture as soon I receive one.

Happy Birthday To Me

It's late, but I want to post some pictures taken on my birthday. Tom planned to give me a surprise party but decided he'd better tell me about it the day before. I'm glad he did - to begin with, I don't much like surprises and my house was in no condition to have guests.
Kevin, Mike, Jeannette, Jarrod, Benjamin, Audrey, Greg, Jack, my neighbors, Joe & Shirley Lockwood and our friend, Duane Foist were all here.
The kids were so much fun that I forgot to take any pictures of the adults. Sorry!


Erin is due to leave on a trip to Israel with her church on September 1st. This is another trip that I can hardly wait to hear about and see the pictures. I have to travel to foreign countries through my nieces because I would be too scared to go on my own.


As you all probably know, Elizabeth is in South America. If I understood correctly, she and her roommate flew into Lima, Peru on August 10th and after several days there traveled on to Bolivia on Saturday, August 19th. The trip from Peru was a 7 hour bus trip, a 2 hour taxi ride, then a WALK across the border! But she said it was so beautiful and peaceful, she didn’t mind. They were to stay in Bolivia for maybe 10 days or so, then on to Argentina. I got this info from LaDonna not long after Liz left. I can't wait to see her pictures and hear all about it when she gets home, which should be around the 10th of September.
