So we finally know what we are doing with ourselves after 7 years of school. We are moving to a smallish town in north eastern Oregon where they could really use a good eye doctor. We felt like we have been looking and trying to decide what to do for a while and nothing seemed to be right. Then all of a sudden everything kind of fell into place and we really feel like this is what Heavenly Father wants our family to do. We are sad to leave Ohio but excited to start this next part.
We got to go spend about 3 weeks visiting my mom and dad in Virginia. My brother was getting home from his mission so it was good to be able to see him. It was fun to do something else for a little while.......well, I guess I didn't really do anything different but it was fun to just have a change of scenery. We had fun going to the park, playing at the beach, and eating too many treats. It was really good to see my family and hopefully we didn't destroy the house too badly. Thanks mom and dad! These are just a few pictures that we took there that I think are cute. My mom had a picture done of all the grandkids and the boys had matching clothes. Here is Mason in his little suit.......so cute! He was being a stinker though and wouldn't hold still and smile. I like this picture of Maddy but of course Mason still wasn't holding still. He's not so big on holding still.
Tate and Jack are only about 3 weeks apart. Here they are taking turns chewing on a towel. Hopefully when everyone is done with school we can all live sort of close by so that they can be friends. Some of these are pictures from the kite festival that were supposed to go in the post below but I didn't feel like waiting for 10 years while the pictures uploaded at the same time.
I think we went to the beach about 4 times. The water was freezing but the kids didn't seem to mind. One of our trips to the beach was to see the Kite Festival in Virginia Beach........we were reminded of why we normally don't go to Virginia Beach. Mason loves to dig so he was basically in heaven digging in the world's biggest sandbox. It was fun to see everyone and Maddy and Mason had a good time playing with Grant.
