Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our family blog. This may be your first visit here, or you may be a friend from across the globe, or family that we have just seen. Who ever you may be, thanks for taking the time to read about our little family, and all we are learning on this adventure the Lord has called us to live! Here you will find, the random thoughts, funny stories, prayer requests, and the journey our family and Jack is on with his battle with Leukemia.

We live.. I promise!

I have been taking a little break from blogging the past few weeks. Between sicknesses, my allergies, trying to enjoy summer to the very last day, and just being tired... there has been a lot keeping me away!

But we are alive and life has been full! Jordan took me to Le Mis at Wolf Trap! That was so much fun~

Jack had a mysterious rash, that had me quite freaked out. It started out small, but then one day he woke up from a nap looking like this. I had already taken him to the Dr. and they did not know what it was.... so I had to wait it out. Poor little guy. It took over a week for all those awful spots to finally go away!

In the meantime, I felt like people looked at him as if he was a child with some plague! Tyler got it too, but not as bad! Then, on top of it all, I got some flu thing at the same time! That was a rough week at our house!

To make summer even longer, we have been using the sprinkler! Tyler loves it so much. I love this shot, because he looks like the little boy I think he will be one day- he doesn't look like a toddler, but a boy...

And now we are up and running again... Jack is over 9 months and crawling everywhere! Always in motion!

He has 4 teeth and one more on the verge of breaking through! He seems to have slowed down in growth. At his 9 month appointment, he was 20 lbs 9 oz, and 29 inches long. Only in the 75% for height (down from 95%) and 50% for weight (also down from 90%)!!

And now, this Sunday, we are off to Corolla North Carolina for a 2 week vacation with the Kauflin side of the family! Can't wait to be with my honey and our family for 2 whole weeks of vacation!

I will try to post again before we go, and MAYBE get one up while we are away- for anyone who might still be reading this almost dead blog!! :)
