What is Summer without Idaho?!?

Estella will be one on the 22nd of this month...so hard to believe!

It was so strange for me last Summer to not come out to Idaho(because Estella was born). Idaho has just always been the place that I have spent summers...and we are back again! It is so good to be "home" although I am feeling very ready to see the sunshine any day now! What is with all this rain! Guess we needed it! Anyways....we will be in Idaho until the second week in August (when we move to Missouri). We are so excited to be here to spend time with family and friends and really get plugged in at our different church families in the area. It seems like it has been too long since we got to spend some real quality time with people that we care so much about. Sometimes distance makes communication so hard...even though that is no excuse! For now we are living with Craig's parents and trying to get plugged into the church body at both the Paul Congregational Church and Burley Baptist. We are super excited to see what God has in store for us this summer and in the future. We are putting together our first newsletter (WAY OVERDUE) and if we do not have your contact info and you would like to receive it please email, call or facebook us so we can make sure you get on the list. Either your email address or mailing address will work! Thanks so much! Here are just a few pictures of us hanging out on a somewhat sunny day in Idaho :)

Our little monkey is almost one!!!

clapping her hands
learning to share
taking her first steps
our beautiful little girl is growing and changing so much everyday!
Some of her new favorite things include raising her arms above her head when we ask her "how big are you?"....she loves animals (especially cats)....not to mention her new found attitude when things do not go her way! Oh the joy of parenting! Estella Mae we love you SO VERY MUCH!
