We Are Back!

The work monster came and devoured our home computer and now after two years has finally decided to regurgitate it back up, therefore allowing Ashley to update her blog! Life has happened at our house and instead of updating you all we have been barely getting by living it! I will try...yes, try being the key word...I will try and update you all every few months on how our little family is doing in Salmon.
Well, we are busy and well and yeah! Jeremey is working hard as Weed Superintendent...yep, he's the big guy at the weed office now and Ashley is enjoying her boys and having time off from the pool and directing plays. Rowan is learning so much with preschool and is counting down the days till Christmas and Kael bug is potting training and loving life as a 2.75 year old!

Final months of 2011

Busy, busy, busy can pretty much sum up these last few months of
out lives, as I'm sure some of you can relate. Jeremey is still trucking away for the county weed control and is enjoying more responsibility as he is climbing the work ladder. He got his elk in October and filled our freezer, woo-hoo, and now has the itch for whitetail with his bow. When he is not providing for our family, Jeremey loves spending time with his two little rascals and giving mommy me-time.
Ashley tried out for Salmon Idol this year along with big sister, Jenny, and placed third out of all the contestants which was a fun experience and her hard work finally paid off when her school kids performed "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead" in the beginning of December. Ashley is now finally enjoying baking holiday goodies again, spending evenings with the men in her life, and of course, rearranging/cleaning her house after turning her downstairs into a drama shed. She will be back at the drama grind at the end of January and is excited for her upcoming adventures with the ones she loves.
Besides being a ball of energy and Mr. Independent, Rowan is loving childhood (well, hopefully, anyway). His first day of pre-school was on his 3rd birthday which he has been just a thriving at and he seems to give the bus driver a hoot with every short bus ride, or so we've witnessed. Rowan went as our little stinker, a skunk for halloween, and is excited to see what Santa brings!

Little Kael is growing like a weed, can sit up all by himself and is very close to crawling and cutting his first tooth. Like Rowan, he is a special spirit, smiley to all he meets, and is not Mommy's but Daddy's little boy! (Jer wanted me to be sure to mention this, neener, neener!) We hope all of you are staying warm or cold or whatever suits you for the remainder of this year. We love you and hope you keep in touch.

August 2011

Our family, like all of you, have been nothing but busy this summer. The newest member of our family, little Kael, turned four months old on August 13th and is just a thriving. He is getting stronger everyday, is quite the little vocal man already with his goo goo ga ga's, and will be cutting his first teeth soon, (we're sure of it!) Rowan has taken more of an interest in being in the outdoors with his daddy, hiking, fishing, camping, and collecting bugs, the Cyphocleonus Achates to be exact, which is a root boring wevil that attacks spotted nap weed. The other day Rowan spotted some type of noxious weed that Jeremey taught him about and asked me if we could spray it, he he he. He will be quite the outdoorsman we think! Ashley has been working at the pool part time teaching lessons and guarding which has been just about the right amount of "out of the house time" and social time that she needs. Her activities coordinator calling has kept her busy and she has been finding opportunities where she can sing more in church or for the community and will be the assistant drama coach for the school district again this year. Jeremey has been extremely busy this summer with work, work, work and taking people down the river. He can't wait for the hunting season to begin and is perfecting his aim with his new bow. As always, we hope you are all well and we send our love your way!
