Madison Laurel was born late Tuesday afternoon June 8th. She was almost 2 weeks overdue.
With the midwife, we decided to help labor along a little with a product called cytotec. Mommy was very happy to avoid pitcocin. We very much wanted a natural childbirth and besides the cytotec we acomplished our goal. My water even spontaneously rapured on it's own! Dad was a trooper and big help at the hospital. And big sisters are loving the new addition.

Just two sisters having fun

Tea Party

Last month the girls asked to have a tea party so this time i got out two of the dainty tea cups I have and do a real tea party, using apple cider instead. As you can see they invited along a friend. The effort was worth it when I saw how happy it made them.

Ben's New Job

We are VERY happy to announce (to those of you that
don't already know) that Ben has started his first
full time teaching job. We thought we were
going to have to wait a entire year for him to be able
to get a job becuase of stipulations on his Social Studies
teaching license for which he is currently finishing up
someclasses, but we were luckily able to find a opening
at a near by high school. He is running the ALP
(Alternative Learning Program) We are very excited.

No, there is not currently any snow on the ground this is the photo from the website.

Go Raiders!!
