We will remain confident in the Lord's direction for our lives....

It has been a while since I last blogged, so I thought I should get something down before I get harassed.  

Not too much exciting new to report with the Aldrich family.  All the boys have been dealing with croup.  Dylan got it last week and then Jaydon and Garth both had it over the weekend.  We were hoping to go on our first camping trip, but obviously that was postponed due to sick boys.  Hopefully, we can go this weekend.  It should be interesting since the most camping I have done is in an RV. And I consider roughing it if my dad doesn't turn the heater on in the RV.  I'm sure I can brave the elements for a couple of days.  Besides Dylan is so excited about the thought of camping.  I will definitely post pictures and details later if we get the chance to go.

Garth is well.  His only complaint really right now is his commute to and from work.  He has to get up at least by 5 am every morning and then it takes him about an hour to get home in the evening.  He doesn't like it, but we appreciate him making the sacrifice so we can live here in Temecula and allow Dylan to go to one of the best schools.  Thanks, honey.

Dylan is still adjusting to school.  This week he is Student of the Week.  He gets to be line leader, take up attendance, etc.  Mon. and Tues. were no cry days, but today I left him with a few tears.  I was hoping things were better.  He has made a new friend named Louie.  That has to help things a bit.   He still loves riding his bike, skateboard, and scooter.  He has found a new love for drawing and coloring.  It is really neat to watch it develop.  It has been too hot to ride MX, but hopefully we will return to that soon.  We love watching him ride.  

Jaydon is two now.  I took him for his 2 year check up and he was 31 lbs. and 35 1/2 in.  He is still a big boy - in the 80%.  He enjoys playing with his toys and going to the park.  He really likes to read books.  He will bring me a book and say "Iwanttoread".  He will run in the other room and sit down and we enjoy some book time.  He is also becoming a parrot.  He repeats alot that is said.  For instance, this morning he was watching Dora the Explorer and at the end they sing "We did it."  He chimed right in singing and dancing.  He also loves watching Sesame Street.  We love Elmo.  It is so fun watching him grow and develop.  It needs to be though, because it has to make up for the times he can be just a nasty 2 year old.  :)

Well that is all I have to report for now.  The weather is beginning to cool off now.  You almost need a jacket most evenings, but the days are still nice, sunny, and warm.   On that note, I do want to mention my pals in Corpus.  IKE is headed their way and they are getting ready to evacuate at I type.  We are praying for them and their safety.  You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Till next time.....

Glad to hear you guys are settling in. Cooler temperatures sound so nice right about now!! I'm sporting quite a tummy these days as I just passed the 21 week mark and pregnancy in 100 degree weather is not pleasant, but thank goodness for A/C! Love the posts!!
