I know it's been a while since the last time we updated this, but here's the latest: Josh has a new job at Hanford through CH2MHill as a nuclear chemical operator and started last week. The training is a bit slow but he's working through! He's enjoying the new job and is looking forward to the end of the training period.

I passed all of my classes this semester and am out of school for the summer. I am planning to work for the larger hospital in our area which is also down the street from us as a nurse technician. I will basically be a little higher up than a CNA, but not at the nurse level yet. I have an interview June 11th, so we'll see what happens! School will start again at the end of August and I'll graduate in December! Then I'll have to join the real world of working people!

Gabriel turned 10 months on the 13th and is doing wonderful! He is crawling and pulls himself up on anything close by. He walks with assistance but is starting to stand for a few seconds without holding on. No teeth yet, but we can see them under the gums so we're expecting them soon! He's a very busy and happy guy.

Gabriel and I went with my family to California this last week where he experienced his first plane ride! My dad is recording a new album in the LA area and my brothers and I sang the background vocals. Josh had to stay this trip becuase of the new job, but he was missed!

Gabriel did fantastic on the plane, he was not bothered at all by the take-off and landing. He played and slept and only got a little irritated that I wouldn't let him down to crawl. We spent the week at my brother's house so Gabriel got to enjoy his uncle Scotty and aunt Juliann.

I think that's all for now, now that school is out I should be able to keep up a little better!
