I've been doing it wrong!

I can't believe it! I have been singing wrong for the past, oh, 12 years! I came across a YOUTUBE of a girl giving a FREE voice lesson! It was seriously the most hilarious thing I have ever seen and heard. If you need a good laugh, watch this video. I think I should call her, get some 3 hour lessons since I'm "more advanced". What do you think?

Hello again!

We're back. There is just too much technology to keep up with. Facebook, blogging, texting, e-mailing my head is already spinning! We have had a busy past few months. So I'm just going to post a quick update and I will try to do more later.

In April we all went to CA for the MS Walk. It was such a great experience! I was so touched by having all my family there along with one of my best friends Brooke. After the walk we all went to a park and played, ate lunch and had a little b-day party for Ollie and Sean.

In May we got a dog. His name is Rufus. He is an inside/outside dog and Jessica had no idea she was allergic to dogs until she had the dog inside. So we have to vaccum at least once a day, but on the bright side, her carpet stays vaccumed(I can't say clean because my carpet is ridiculously dirty!) Jessica had another MRI and had a really bad reaction to the contrast dye that sent her to the hospital. By the end of the month she was much better. She also found out the results of her MRI and the verdict was . . . NO PROGRESSION of her MS. Woohoo!

June has been a good month. Jake received a promotion at work, which will help him move up in the company. Yippee! The only down side is he will have to work the weekend shift. We weren't sure which shift he would have to take and it looked like he would still be on a day shift at first, but that abrubtly changed. We still feel that it is an answer from the Lord, so we are praying for his blessings to be with us. Jessica also applied for a music teaching job at a new middle school. We are hoping that she gets hired. She would be teaching choir and band for sure. It would be great experience. If she doesn't get hired then she will continue subbing for the district.

Kurtis lost his first tooth on the last day of school. The toothfairy gave him a dollar. That was more than I ever got for my first teeth. The toothfairy must be getting richer. He has been having fun this summer and rode on a plane by himself to San Diego for the first time this month. After spending a week in San Diego with Grammie and friends, he will be going up to Hurricane to spend a week with Grandma and Grandpa and then he will be off on a family camping trip for 5 days. Talk about fun!

Sean is cute as ever and in the terrible twos. He knows what he shouldn't play with, shouldn't touch and shouldn't do, but he does it anyway. He tries to get mom's attention by doing things he shouldn't. He really tries Mom's patience. He is talking more now, so he screams less because he can communicate more effectively. Mom is missing Kurtis and the fact that he keeps Sean occupied.

We hope you all are well! Have a wonderful summer!

Jess, Jake, Kurtis, Sean and Rufus
