So I guess there's no point in having a blog if people keep visiting it only to reread what we did three months ago. So, despite much protest from many of you :) I am posting an update. I have some pictures, but don't have the cables to get them to our computer. But I did take a couple of pictures on my phone and was able to snag them off of my email.

We are now in Indianapolis. We have had a fun time here so far, but miss the family in Rexburg. We try to follow Mom's Hug to keep informed with the family. The house we are staying in is Alanna's brother's. He has been extremely gracious in allowing us to be here. The house is really nice and because he travels so much, we have it to ourselves weeks at a time. We have had a few adventures to go with it. It all started the day the pipes froze during a cold snap. Later that day, the pipes broke, and water sprayed all over the garage. The furnace got water on its circuit breaker and eventually shorted out. So we've had the plumber and the H-Vac out and now the water heater is leaking a little. It is a good experience for us to see some of the problems associated with have your own house.

James is growing up to fast. He has got the crawling thing down pretty well. He doesn't race, but likes to find something small to prop himself up on and he negotiates himself up on to his feet. It is fun to see him try to stand up, but at the same time, I just want to pick him and hold him like he use to let me. Now he just likes to squirm and wiggle. No signs of teeth yet, but he has started to sleep through the nights. He even slept for 11 hours the other night.

My applications are going in and Alanna's schooling is going pretty well. We are just waiting to hear from my applications.
