I had a couple requests for an update so here it is.
We'll start with saying that I am purposefully not saying too much with the children because we're worried about their privacy both now and years from now. With everything on the internet lasting forever we are afraid that the children might have problems as adults if their history comes up. It's just the way things are.
Steve is at home all the time now. The work he had building new locations in the oilfields is over at least until oil prices go up again and we all know they will. But for now he is at home every day and that's been really nice. He's out on the ranch getting a lot of things done like a couple new wells and grading and paving a new road to the back of our property. He paved the two mile road from the main road to the house and it's really nice. It's tons smoother than the local roads around here and it's fun to drive on! The kids love having him home all the time and I think they're all used to the idea that he's not going to have to leave for work anytime soon.
Christie is buried in her work and when she is done she and I are going to drive to Arizona for her to do a little business in Prescott but then we're going to see Sedona, the Grand Canyon, and Las Vegas before we come home! I've never seen those places before and it should be fun! Cydne is staying home with all the children and the babies and we have a helper coming in to help out for the nine whole days we're gone! I LOVE my children but the thought of just getting to be me and not "MOMMY!!!" for nine days seems amazing! I will post some pictures when we get back!
Cydne is doing fine and has been having fun starting her own garden this year. I am still doing my quilting work and cooking every day. Christie is mostly busy with work but is trying to read when she can. Steve works all the time but he's also been practicing his shooting more just because he says he is out of practice.
With Steve home I expect all three of us women will have baby news before too long. Christie especially wants another baby this year and both Cydne and I just know it won't be long before we start making plans for new babies in 2017.
That's really about everything that is going on for right now. Just one more thing...
I had a message from a documentary producer and while we will not be doing this I did want to share his very nice letter in case anyone wanted to talk to him about helping him:
My name is Nico, I'm a television producer for PSG Films in Seattle, Washington. We create documentary series for Discovery, National Geographic, TruTV, and others.
I stumbled upon your blog while researching polygamous families for a new TLC series! I'm sure you have been approached before regarding your own family or any others that you know that might be interested in participating in a documentary program, if so, let me know! Otherwise, it would be great to connect with you and speak on the phone. Contact me any time!
Wishing you the best,
