Happy Valentine's Day

We hope that everyone had a great valentine's day!  Spending it with the one's you love is always the best.  But remember that you do not need to just show them how much you love and appreciate them just this one day a year, show it often through out the year.

Love from all of us!
Mike, Brenda
Tyler, Morgan & Autumn

How time flys

I can't believe how fast time goes by.  I feel like we just got the kids in school and we are already half way through the year.  The kids are doing great, and loving being here in Utah.  They have several friends, and have adjusted really well.  Tyler has moved from the tenor trombone to the bass trombone, and has been asked to be in the honor & jazz band next year.  He is really excelling at it, and loves playing.  Morgan is doing so much better in school and is reading on a six grade level, when we left CA she was reading on a 2nd grade level.  She loves to read now.  Autumn is doing great in school as well and is working on passing off her times tables now.  She is getting ready to pass off 3's this week, and then we will move onto 4's.

I also can not believe that January has already come and gone and we are now into February.  It seems as I get older the faster time goes.
