There's a new kid in town!

Emily and I went to see the latest Truitt addition last night. He is really a beautiful newborn! Jenn is doing well and Troy is , you know, just Troy! Emily really wanted me to just drop her off at the hospital today so that she could just "stay with Aunt Jenn". (I'm sure she would be so much help) Ha! It was pretty special holding a tiny baby again.........however, I think I'll just be content to share in the Truitt's joy this time around. Troy is a little bummed that we're messing up the Truitt-Boardman ratio by not doing six for six! Oh well..............................

Happy girls at the baby shower!
It was special being with Dave and Brit. Her Mom watched her kiddos and June Robinson watched mine. Thanks Girl!

Surgery Day! We were tired!

Emmy climbed up by Papaw and didn't want to leave.

My year so far!

Wow! What a crazy three weeks! On January 9, my Daddy had open heart surgery. I left Josh at home with Dave and took a flying trip to Louisiana for five days. It was quite a traumatic thing seeing my Dad in ICU. He is home and doing very well. Mom told me yesterday that he walked a 1/2 mile. Thank the Lord!
I came home on a Monday and helped with Jennifer Truitt's baby shower on Tuesday. Emily was thrilled to be able to attend this "big girl" function. No peas up the nose this time! Thank goodness!
On Wednesday, we entertained Bro. Will Byler from Lebanon, PA. He is the president of an organization called Mission Helps. They assist missionaries in several ways; construction crews, deputation vehicles, laptop computers, a prayer ministry, lodging, and healthcare. He came to discuss the possibility of Dave joining the group as a medical consultant or caregiver. Dave is really excited about it!
School is back in full swing. Josh is leaving me in the fog in his Algebra. In fact, I'm going to let our friend, Dharshaka (Sri Lankan) tutor him from now on.
I found out today from Pastor Truitt, that I am the teacher for the teenage girls again at youth camp. If any of you have some favorite resources or websites, please share them with me. This is my third year and I would like some fresh material.
Until next time,

Josh, you just thought you were getting a widescreen for your computer!
Merry Christmas, Emmy!
We are enjoying a few more days of holiday break before it's back to school and back to the grind!
Our trip to Indy for the Boardman reunion was a blast! Thirty-two cousins, brothers, sisters, parents, and grandparents in one house for 4 days is bound to be exciting if not a little scary! We had some wonderful meals (Cincinnati Chili, homeade Belgian waffles, ham and potatoes, broiled roast beef sandwiches,,,,,,), played a fun Boardman Trivia game, and spent the rest of the time enjoying each other. I sure married into a terrific family!!!!!
