familyline.co

Christian just launched this new website . It's a seven generation fan chart you can create of your family. They are really cool. We have given these enlarged and framed as presents to in-laws and parents and they all loved them. I figured if I posted this to all my wide, large, growing daily readership blog then maybe I could finally get one. Right Christian? We'll talk.



By the way, you know you live in Logan, ut when your 3 year old asks you on June 22nd with not a cloud in the sky and the sun blazing down if it is going to snow today. I told him it wouldn't but I'm still not holding my breath. We are starting to get used to it being always winter and never Christmas around these parts.

Our Summer, So Far


Sorry we've been gone. We've been really busy. Spending about eight + hours a day in the bathroom. Who knew potty training was a full time job? Oh, I guess everyone who has kids. We are hanging in there. CJ is having no accidents (except for five in two hours when there is a babysitter....oops) but has a hard time with the "big messy" (coined by ceej). I'll just say we spent hours in the bathroom until both of us were crying (not soren, though. He was just screaming.) It was awesome.

Then we set up a chair in the bathroom with netflix and an ipad. And I am feeling less like a crazy, hysterical maniac. Thank you Backyardigans.

Soren has been a pretty good sport through all this. His hobbies are climbing on my lap and screaming for attention, pulling the flowers out of my pots with a huge grin on his face, riding his plasma car around the cul-de-sac over and over and over and over, and folding his arms and saying "amen" repeatedly while someone (usually cj) is praying. He likes to keep his prayers short.

Other than that, tball, swimming lessons, insisting that I turn on the sprinklers (but refusing to get anywhere near the water), lots of popsicles, and bike rides, we are just waiting impatiently extremely patiently for baby sister to get here. Wish us luck.
