Happy Spring

WE are all looking forward to spring coming. I don't know about anyone else, but I am anxiously waiting for warmer weather and no snow. I was in the valley today and it was so beautiful!!!
Lee will be coming home from Iraq in about 14 days and so we are planning a trip to San Diego to see him. I can hardly believe it has been 7 months since he left. It will be good to have him back in the USA. It has been great having Mattie stay a part of our lives while he has been gone. I love her so much.
Curtis is doing great in Spain. He loves the people and is having some wonderful experiences there!! We are so grateful he is serving his mission! Rachel comes by and sees us every weekend and we love having her still be a part of our family. She is very attached to our hearts so she will always be one of us!
The kids are all doing great in school and I am plugging along. I can't believe there are only 7 weeks left, but I think they are going to be a long 7 weeks. Biology is almost killing me. Our exchange daughter does not have much time left with us either and we will miss her very much when she goes back to Norway. It has been a joy to have her in our home!!

Spring Break

We had the best time in Mexico. We missed Mattie and Rachel, they could not go with us and of course Lee is still in Iraq and Curtis is on His mission. Clint, Shan and Byntlee were not there with us this year either, hopefully next year. I miss seeing Brookelyn every day. Grandma was spoiled by that!!!
All the kids and the Grand baby
