And yet another thing I am not so great at...... blogging

So what have you been up to? Has your life been full and happy? Have you missed us? Well, here my dear friends is a quick update on the comings and goings of the Metzger household.

Joe is still employed at O & G.

It's a long commute, over an hour each way. Not too long ago, I made the mistake of calculating how much more time we would have with him if the commute wasn't so far. It's a lot and I'm sure you will all get sick of hearing me go on and on about it. O&G is a great company and we are grateful for his job.
As previous mentioned Joe attended a lot of Phish concerts this summer. In recognition of this fact, Joe dubbed this summer as the summer of Phish. Being in the presence of these musical masters that much, nearly gave Joe's life enough meaning to make him want to go on.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I should put it out there that I did
have a really good time at the one Phish concert I attended with him. It's amazing how familiar I was with their music. Considering the years of constant exposure I shouldn't have been surprised.
Here we are before the concert. Don't we look happy?

I recently got back from visiting my family. It was wonderful. I do plan on blogging all about it, someday.....

Due to my calling in Young Women's I went to both Youth Conference and Girl's Camp. I still wonder however if they released me from Primary for being a bad example to the kids. I just could not master sitting still.....
My sister Sarah came to visit. Fun, fun, fun. Future blog post about this as well. (It will happen, but don't hold your breath.)

Nicholas loved his first year of Public School. I am so happy that it worked out the way it did. It really was a blessing for this control freak mom. His teacher Ms. Shumans was kind and we will miss her.

Holden just turned 7. I can't stand how fast they are growing up. He LOVED soccer, which was nice because he doesn't like very much.
Matthew's platelets are almost in the normal range. Our last count was 137. (Normal is between 150 and 400) We don't have to go back to the hematologist for 3 months. Hip Hip Hooray.

Well there you have it, a brief synopsis of the Metzger family. Does this mean I am all caught up?

Tied Together With Love

Our 2010 Family Reunion theme was Tied Together With Love. 

We stopped in Utah before we drove up to Idaho and spent some time with family there.
Here I am with my cousin Stephen Hines.  It may not look like it but he loves me.

 When we got to Idaho we spent some time with Family there.  Including having a fun picnic in Victor.
Mine and Sarah's bum.  Nice right?
 After that we all headed up to Wyoming for the official reunion.
