So let me take this chance to update you on our life. There are a few friends we haven't been in contact with for a very long time, and can't wait to rekindle those friendships. It's been fun to "peek" into your lives through the wonderful world of blogging. This is what has enticed me to give it a shot. I love hearing how everyone is doing and am glad all is well.

As far as I can tell, Jason is finally finished with school. He graduated with his EdD in May of 2007. So far he hasn't asked to go back yet, and now that i'm in school, I'm hoping it will stay this way. He has had much fun with his new found free time, something with held for quite sometime because of school endeavors. He still enjoys teaching seminary and has many great students.

I love my job as a nurse assistant on the mother baby unit. It has only confirmed to me more the desires I have of becoming a nurse. Thus my attempt at returning to school. This has been a challenge and yet uplifting. I was afraid I was too old to go back, but really do enjoy it.

Taylorann and Karson are doing great in school. They both have good friends and wonderful teachers. We are happy to seem them work so hard to earn good grades. They both anxiously await the arrival of their baby brother this Christmas. Although he came as a huge surprise, we are adapting well and getting ready to give the baby world a try again.

Again, it will be great to hear from ya'll. Take care.

Welcome to the blogging life! It's a challenge sometimes, but it helps not to have to tell the same story over and over. I found your blog through Kacie's. It's been nice to keep tabs on everyone at home! Early congrats on the baby. That is so neat! Love Liz Anderson

Hey Kort - Hope you don't mind that Janni (we hooked up on Facebook - she says I need to convince you that it's not an internet datcing scene - it's not - there, are you convinced? You should join!) sent me the link to your blog. It's so fun to see your little family - congrats on the new little one that will soon be here! And congrats on going back to school - funny thing because I'm going back to school too to be a nurse. Just taking pre-reqs right now. I think you can link to my blog from my profile here. If not, let me know and I'll send you the link.
