Home from Alaska

So Jared, Evelynn and I went to Alaska to have a bunch of meetings. We were there for a week. It was a fast trip. Evelynn did great thou.  In the meetings we covered health care, housing, community, school, and Jared's work responsibilities. It was great all the information that the camp gave to us. I see changes at camp and how God is working in people there. It was hard to leave camp this time and I can't wait to call it home. It is funny how every time we go to camp we take less pictures because pictures can't even come close to the real site.

The older kids stayed with the grandparents the week we were there. They were happy to see us when we got home. I can't thank everyone enough who has helped with the kids and with bring meals with us having the baby.

Baby is Here!!!

She is here!! Yeah
Evelynn Grace
Lynn is after my mom's middle name and older sister's middle name. Grace is after my Grandma's middle name.

We went in on Saturday the 30. She finally showed her face at 6:09pm that day. She was born 9 pounds 12 ounces, 21 inches long. She was 15 days early thankfully. The other kids were very excited for her, but the sure did miss mom being home. I came home on Monday May first and Jared started a project of new sink and faucets in the kitchen. So he stayed home the next day to help me and finish the project. It turned in to new plumbing for the kitchen too. Oh so interesting beginning a project. I remember when our oldest came home from the hospital it doesn't  fell like that long ago. Wow the kids grow so fast. Now we are a family or 6 crazy busy but worth every lost second of sleep.

The kids are fighting over who gets to hold Evelynn first. It is cute!

So I am very grateful for everyone who has offered to help. I got out of the house today by myself and it took forever and when I got home I needed a nap. So with Yes I am very great for the help. Thank you Thank you
