So much has happened in the last several years (yes, years!) since I blogged. I want to take a quick minute to let you know that we are indeed alive and well! Here's a brief synopsis of what you've missed while we've been gone:
John graduated from BYU with a Bachelor degree in Nutritional Science. I graduated from the University of Utah with a Masters degree in Social Work. I'm now a real live therapist. And I never have to go back to school again!
We found out we were expecting a baby, I had an emergency appendectomy at 16 weeks, and while at the hospital we learned that the baby would be a boy!
John is attending A.T. Still University. He is currently working on his thesis about periodontal disease. He loves his program, the faculty, staff, and university.
On August 31, 2012, after a tough time getting here, we welcomed Colt Marvin Harper into the world. We feel so blessed to be his parents and to have his sweet spirit in our home. He is a very good natured baby and a great sleeper! It really doesn't get any better than this.
Lastly, to our friends and family members in Utah and Idaho: we miss you! I am so grateful for google+, Facetime and other modern technology that helps us stay in touch. We absolutely love our life in Missouri and know that this is where our family is suppose to be, but we really wish we could have brought all of you with us! So just remember that we are a mere 90 minutes from Nauvoo, the Mark Twain Museum, and more amish country that you can imagine....and we love having visitors!
