Long time no see!

It has been forever since my last post, where does the time go. We are very busy, Kathy Jo is working on her Phd. and I am busy with work and my calling as Stake President. Kathy Jo is currently in Texas to a conference that BYU-I sent her to, and I am in the middle of Ward Conferences. The winter here has a been a long one, lots of snow and cold, i will be grateful to see spring come. This week end we got to have Travis stay at our house overnight while his parents enjoyed some time away, we had a great time, he is really a good little boy and lots of fun. Enjoy the pictures.

Been to long, since our last post, where does the time go? Summer has been slow in coming this year, but the advantage is that the tulips lasted a long time, and in spite of it all the garden is doing well. Included are some picture of birds which are visiting our house last week and of a visit from Ben Erin and Travis. Grand children are so much fun!

Been a long time since I posted anything! A sad happening in our family as the family dog Baden passed away last week. He was a great dog and we miss him. A faulty heart and resulting kidney failure lead to his death. A few pictures to remember him by.

Smokey the cat decided to help me write a letter to Josh, she kept swatting the pen, and laying on the paper.

November 22 winter has arrived.

We had a little Devil named Travis visit us at Halloween Isn't he cute!

long time since

It has been a long time since I last posted anything. Josh is doing great in Chili, he arrived there around the 24 of August. He has a Chilean companion. The language is slowly coming.
On Sept 24, I caught a big German brown on the river about 2 miles upstream from the house, We took its picture with a cell phone camera and turned it loose, we estimate it to have been about 12-14 pounds. Great Fun! Kathy and I are both very busy lots of meetings, school work and such. Seems like there is not enough time to do everything that needs to be done. Have had a beautiful crop of sunflowers this year, I use this picture as a screen saver.
I must mention the thousands of Lady Bugs that we have had at our home this year I take pictures of them and send them to Cornell University who is conducting a research project on kinds and distribution. In August Kathy Jo and I went with the youth from our stake to Martins Cove, it was a wonderful experience to spend the time with the youth of our stake. We pulled handcarts for 14 miles one day and it really brought home in a small way the difficulty the saints had in getting across the plains and the great faith they had.
