I think it is a fantastic idea! So, I'll be the first!

Mark and I have just started a trucking company (since we didn't have anything else to do!) He has been working for other people for a year, and decided to get a piece of the pie! He and his partner have 8 trucks, and February 1 was our first official day!

The daycare is going well, we are getting ready to expand. This will increase our enrollment to 80 kiddos. Pray for good weather so they can go outside and not be locked up in the building all summer!

Calin is still working for Cougar Tool, an oilfield tool company. He enjoys it, particularly the paycheck. He just bought his first new truck, very exciting! Today is his 19th birthday!

Jacob has been busy with band, and his new girlfriend. We don't see him much, but when we do, he usually has a phone to his ear.

Hunter just finished wrestling season, he had a good season, but no medals. He was disappointed, but plans to work harder next season.

I bought a new horse two weeks ago! Her name is Sissy, and she is a beautiful bay. I will be showing her this year, along with Midget. I will be showing both horses in working cow horse and Sissy in team penning along with my trainers wife. Can't wait for the season to start!!

Pray for me to maintain my sanity and at some point in time to get to bed at a decent hour!

Love to all,

Melissa I was so excited to hear all your news. It looks like Tandy wasn't the only one out of the loop. Can't wait to hear more. And, what is all this about Jacob's girlfriend? Hum?
