I know my posting has been a bit intermittent lately, but blogging has taken the backseat to "real life." We have been hard at work on the new house. Right now it is completely gutted. No bathrooms. No kitchen. No nothing (I suppose that technically no nothing means that there is in fact something and technically that would be correct). My dad and Mark have done a ton of work. Melissa's grandpa Herb has been up a few times working under the house. He says he is working on the plumbing but considering the pipes and tools I have seen him take under there, he could in fact be building a bomb. While I am giving shout-outs to those who have helped, I should mention my brother, Chris and Tyler, Travis, and Brent who have all donated their time as well. We are so excited to move in! I have even begun practicing my ghetto slang to use on the hard streets up Dublin. We don't have a definitive move-in date yet, but we hope to be in there soon. Enjoy the pics.

So this winter has been rough for us. We have all been fighting various viruses/infections since December! Tate has been sick almost every weekend for the past month! A cold, a sinus infection (treated with anti-biotics), the flu and this weekend another fever! The doctor said it is perfectly normal for kids to have 7-10 colds in a winter, especially when your parents are teachers. He thinks we bring things home to Tate without even knowing. Poor guy has really been miserable and we hope he gets better soon! Thanks to all of you who have been praying for the little guy! dan will be home with him tomorrow and I will most likely be with him Tuesday. As the pictures demonstrate, Tate has been rather subdued these past few weeks and has spent an inordinate amount of time watching Elmo. It is the only kids DVD we own so it is safe to say Dan and I are a little sick of Elmo. Tate however has watched it several times and doesn't seem to mind! Thanks for the DVD Auntie Lolly and Uncle Paul! Tate loves it! Hopefully our next post will have some better news :-)
