The Quick Summary

OK- now that I have this up and running I thought I would give a "quick" summary to bring everyone up to date about what was going on with us.

We are currently stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina as part of the 82nd Airborne. We have been here for about a year. Living in the East and the South are new experiences for us but we like it here. Despite the humidity, heat, and bugs.

Derek is currently deployed to Afghanistan. He left in January and we expect him home some time next spring. He was home for his R&R at the end of July. So he was home for Brian's birthday. The time together was wonderful but not long enough. We look forward to his return!

I (Jodi) enjoy staying home with the boys. They are very active and keep me very busy. I am also the 2nd counselor in the primary presidency. I do a lot more dreaming about than actually doing many of the things I enjoy like scrapbooking, sewing, reading, and crafts. Someday!!

Brian just started kindergarten. He goes all day. The bus picks him up at 8 am and drops him off at 2:50 pm. He loves it and can't wait for the weekend to get over so he can go back. When's he's not at school he also likes to play Playstation (Star Wars Legos II), ride his bike, and wrestle with his brothers.
The boys do love to wrestle, all three of them-- but they really do love each other too.

Andrew loves books and puzzles. He will play with a puzzle all afternoon. He is only 3 but that doesn't stop him from doing the 100 piece puzzles labeled "ages 6 and up." He can do them too, he's amazing. He likes to help his mommy too. He especially likes to help me cook.

Timothy is now 14 months old and is real little "Curious George." He runs everywhere and is always getting into everything. I got so tired of him always getting into my kitchen cupboards that I got out the drill and put the child locks on myself. I have never used a drill before, that's supposed to be the Dad's job-- the things you get to do as an Army wife!! He is also proving to be a climber. We are always finding him up on everything. His two favorite places are sitting in the bathroom and kitchen sinks. He can turn the kitchen sink on so that one makes quite the mess.

Well thats the quick run down. It didn't take as long as I thought it would!
