Wow, it's been a while...

Life is so crazy sometimes. September has been particularly busy and crazy.

The beginning of the month brought some news that is now finally sinking in for the whole family. Alexis is pregnant - she's known since May but didn't know how to tell us, so waited until we noticed. She is healthy and baby appears to be also. We had a 3D ultrasound done over the week end. She's having a Girl!

Kassidy made the volleyball team at Sky View. She has practice everyday after school until 5:00. She is improving each week. Her games are every Wednesday at 4:15 pm. We missed the first game when we were in Franklin, MA. Samantha made Baby Hawk which is sixth grade girls who are interested in trying out for volleyball - she practices with the team on Fridays.

Zach turned 18 on the 3rd. The 5th & 6th we went to Tucson and helped Christa with her booth at the Paper Gatherings convention. The girls and I had a good time. Erich and John went to the Missile Silo and Pima Air Park and saw retired airplanes.

The 9th - 16th Erich and I went to visit my sister and her family. Mom went with us. Erich and I did some sightseeing on our own, we went to Salem. We took the train to Boston twice (once with Mom & Tam), lot of walking both days. Erich and I found a little Italian bakerey the one day - great pizza and calzones. Too bad we didn't have room for dessert thay had some great looking ones. We toured the Casin Young battle ship and took a Duck Tour while in Boston.

The 19th & 20th was Crop Girls. We had classes and crops. Busy week end!

Erich started a new job on the 22nd with West Valley Pain Management. Same type of job he left except better hours, air conditioning in his exam room/office, full benefits starting his first day of work, no barking dog in the owner/office manager's office and about the same pay.

Alexis and I started redecorating her room, getting ready for baby. We painted, ripped out the carpet, and bought laminate wood flooring. Alexis and I started laying the flooring but Erich and Michael finished it for us. The room is looking very nice (a little cramped but functional). I'll post pictures when we are completely finished.

So that was our September. October starts out pretty busy with Alexis' OB/GYN appointment on the first, Kassidy's volleyball game and then Alexis & I will be going to her frist birthing class in the evening.
