Our Real First Blog

Jake and Emily at the Ringling Bros Circus

Hey all! Well to update all of you interested readers...we are still just hanging out in Brooks, GA, trying to bide our time before Jake can get into dental school. Not any time soon, however, he still has a couple of years before he'll even be accepted into the program. We think he got a pretty solid offer on a job so we're pretty excited for that. Cooper is doing great. He recently got over a scary flu bug and has recovered to full spirits. He is even happier than before! Today he pulled out a "suitcase" of Hot Wheels and it seems like his mouth has stayed open with awe and amazement ever since. Never get inbetween a boy and his cars! Luke is happy as he can be...for the little time that we see him. The boy eats, stays awake for about 30 minutes and then sleep for 2 more hours. I think Cooper saw him yesterday for the first time in several days. He probably thought he'd become an only child again! We love our two little bundles! As for Jake and Emily...there's not much going on! The homefront got a deluge of rain yesterday and only too late did we realize that the garage leaks from every nook and cranny. We ran out yesterday to find that our nice, nice mattresses were drenched and already molding and rusty. Welcome to Georgia! Emily has been trying to clean the Guest House to move in but that wasps and roaches keep appearing out of nowhere. She's convinced the hundreds of plants in the house are attracting the pluthera of bugs! Jake has been trying hard to find a job and was so relieved to finally make some headway. Now it's time to finish relaxing before his long vacation ends!

Hey guys,
I love the pictures of your boys, how cute are they! Luke looks like he likes to smile. I can't wait to see him and give him some much needed snuggles. We sure miss you guys. Are you going to come up when Ryan comes home?
Hope all is well in GA. I'm glad you're keeping up on your blog

I loved this post. Man, that's a bummer about your bed mattress. Does your guest house come furnished? :)
