Now we are preparing to go to Disney World with my folks and all my brothers and sisters and their families. Orlando in August will be hot and rainy, but we are expecting to have a great time. We'll be there for a week, then Sarah and the kids will come back to Magna while I spend five days in Wisconsin for the second residency of my master's degree. I'm hoping to keep the 4.0 GPA intact after my summer research class--fingers are crossed!
We were blessed to find a minivan that we could afford and liked. It is a '07 Kia Sedona; I wanted to buy a Toyota or a Honda but I just couldn't spend the money to do so. This car was a steal, so we couldn't pass it up even though we won't really need it until the third kid shows up in November. Sarah sure likes not having to drive me to work anymore!
Take care and we'll post some post-vacation pix later.

Schiff had Lagoon Day last week. Sarah and I left the kids behind and enjoyed an afternoon and evening together. Nathan had some pictures taken recently because he just turned 2. I've attached them below.

Item: Sarah is enjoying her YW calling very much and is making some great connections with her Beehives. I get to go to certain YW activities since I am assisting the YW as part of my high council duties.
Item: My 4.0 GPA for my master's degree will be obliterated as of next week since I got an "AB" in one of my classes. Never mind that it was a 93%--it's still an AB! I got an A in the other class.
Item: Loranna is doing very well. She continues to amaze us with her vocabulary and understanding. She likes to run around outside and she loves her brother very much. She continually tells us that the new baby will be a girl.
Item: I was being recruited for a process technologist position for GlaxoSmithKline Mexico in Mexico City earlier this year. I had two phone interviews before GSK put a hiring freeze on technical personnel. The freeze could be over as soon as June or as late as September. Since they were looking to hire me for next year, it may just be a bump in the road, or my GSK possibilities may be over. Who knows!
We love you all and hope you are well!
