Jon entered into partnership with another local carpenter. We went from fairly slow as the economic slow-down hit us to very, very busy. Praise God! God is good all the time! Jon and Jason complement each other very well in their strengths and weaknesses. It is a perfect fit and we're looking forward to what they will accomplish together.
Benjamin celebrated his 3rd birthday and enjoyed a fun little party at our house with his friends. He loved his cupcakes! Then we went to Hanford to see all our family. We had one adventurous afternoon at Kings River with Uncle Dave and the cousins. Also, Anthony taught Caleb the beginnings of riding a skate board. Caleb can't wait to get his own and practice some more. He did really well.
My mom and I took a short trip to Missouri to visit with the Parrs and the Denneys and meet Kara and Jason's new baby, Jude Anthony. That was a great trip and we had a fantastic time. We ate lots of cookies and played lots and lots of cards. Oh, and we oooooed and awwwwwed over Jude lots:)
