Jumping on the bandwagon...

So, it seems like everyone I know has one of these and I actually started one months ago but was a slacker and didn't do much to it. My sister inspired me though, so here I am at 2:51AM, nursing my child and typing out my message with one hand... ah the life of a mother. :)

Update time: Jake graduated law school in May 2006 at the University of Utah and we moved to Oregon. He found a job in Klamath Falls and we stayed there for about 7 months. We made a lot of friends and grew to enjoy the area. In May 2007 Jake was offered a job back in Salt Lake with a great firm. He would be practicing environmental law (what he studied in law school) and we couldn't pass it up. We moved back and have been incredibly happy, being back by his family, some of mine, and our friends.

Jake and I have been busy looking at houses and hope to buy one in the next couple months, hopefully sooner! We have a great realtor and are sure she will help us find something perfect.

Ben will be 5 Dec. 16th. He is enrolled at Highland High School's preschool program and loves it. So far he has learned about healthy bodies, sports, fall, kings and queens, and this week it's pirates. He loves pokemon and surfs the internet whenever he can, looking for stuff he can get us to buy him for his birthday and Christmas. He's a smart kid... almost too smart. :)

Emma is 2 1/2 and revels in being a girl. Her favorite color is pink and she loves princess stuff, dolls, dresses, getting her nails painted, you name it. She also loves being "mini-mom" helping (and bossing) Ben and Josh. She's a good hug-giver and has tons of energy, more than I can handle some days.

Josh is our latest addition, born July 26th. He is my easiest baby yet. He weighs about 14 lbs. and smiles big gummy grins constantly. He is Ben's clone. We have found pictures where Jake and I couldn't tell the difference between his and Ben's baby picture.

That's about all for now. I will try and update as we get more news. Keep checking back for the latest happenings in the Schip Family Adventures!

I just read my comment and laughed it sounds like I am glad you started your family-which I am, but I really meant I am glad you started your blog!
