Finally, an update!

For those of you wondering, yes, we are still alive.

Since our last post at Christmas, Ethan has experienced so many new things! Including sitting in fire trucks, bull dozers, semi's, riding mules, playing in the snow, eating snow, swinging on swings, jumping on trampolines, going to school, eating american food, and so much more!!

We are all doing well. Ethan is the most wonderful child! Just to catch you up, we have been very busy. Ethan has been seeing a specialist about his feet and has since been wearing casts on both legs for the past 5 weeks. He gets a new set every week. The dr. sounds hopeful that we can avoid surgery by doing this casting procedure. Next, he will wear braces for an undetermined amount of time and then he will have a minor surgery to move a tendon in the top of his foot to help with flexibility.

He hasn't let the casts slow him down one bit! I have really bulked up though! He feels like he is 10 pounds heavier with those casts! He still does what he wants to do, it just requires a lot of lifting on our part!

Ethan goes to preschool 4 days a week while I work (in the next room over!). It is only about 13 hours a week, so it is almost perfect! The only downside is that it is an hour from home.

Ethan loves all of his grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins and sees them often. He especially likes being outside! He already has a light tan from being outside so much!

Perhaps we'll update again...maybe before Ethan goes to Kindergarten! HA HA

The family picture was taken at Easter...notice Ethan's camoflage casts!

Yippee!! I've been checking a couple times a week and figured you'd decided to quit blogging due to the demands of parenthood (believe me, I would understand!) It's great to see some new pictures though...I keep hoping to run into you so I can meet the little guy at church when we're home, but you must go to the earlier service.
What a handsome little man...he SO looks like you both...isn't that amazing? Hope all goes quickly and smoothly with his casts and surgeries...I know that must be tough for an energetic little one!
Love you to you three!
Molly, Myron and Betsy

Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to understand so
much about this, such as you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you just could do with some % to drive the message home a little bit, but other than
that, that is magnificent blog. A fantastic read.
I will certainly be back.
