I suppose I should do an update....

It's only been 3 months since I've last posted. We've been flooded in, some of us have been sick, others have not, one went to Corvallis twice with the Pep Band, one smashed his toe while camping with the 12 and 13 yr old Boy Scouts, I've had a cast on for 5 weeks and now it's been off for 5 days. We've also had a tsunami warning that lasted most of the day Friday. We did leave for awhile since we are right on the river.
Other than these highlights - our family is doing well. Russell finished his master's program and is a free man again. Our garden starts are coming along nicely and spring is in the air!

Glad to hear its been an uneventful 3 months.haha Enjoyed the update, you guys really have had a lot going on. I'm glad your cast is off, now if it could just feel better. I hope soon.

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
