Whatever you read from this point forward (at least in this entry) is not a complaint. I want that up front so no one thinks I am wingeing – Australian whining – about the events of life.
It’s beginning to look like there is an epidemic encroaching on our land. Everywhere you go there are people who need to have their gallbladder taken out. This week it was our little Jenny so we have had Tanner and Hayden with us for the past few days. They are really fun (except Tanner likes to scream in the high-pitched, piercing way he does) and have been very little trouble. Jenny is getting better and will probably be back to normal in a few more days.
BTW, she is a lot tougher than I would be. Way to go Jen.

Josh went to China for a work ‘activity’ and has been gone for more than a week. He Skype’s the kids every afternoon about 5:30 pm (7:30 am China time). They don’t last long but it is fun to see out his hotel window.

Good ole Brian went to Boston earlier this week for a convention thingey. He had to sit on a panel (boring) and schmooze with upitty-ups from around the country. He also discovered he didn’t like… well I don’t want to get him in trouble so I won’t say what he didn’t like. His sweetheart wasn’t feeling well but her mom came out to help.
It’s girl’s camp season so Heather got to go out with the YW in her ward. She seemed excited and I expect she is having a blast. We have Matt and Emma to keep Tanner and Hayden company. It has been very exciting come bath time.

Lastly, Missy is doing better and seems to be on the mend. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then I didn’t say anything.
I guess this is just a normal week in the life old folk and their growing family.
Sure beats the other option.
