Our family has gone through some changes this summer. Mark turned eight and was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Mark also started Cub Scouts and has enjoyed scouting activities this summer including Day Camp.

Gwen learned to swim this summer. She is a little fishy. We also had fun on our new boat. Kevin worked hard to fix up our boat and we all enjoyed staying cool in the water this summer.

We welcomed another beautiful baby girl into our family. Tess Joy Christiansen was born on August 1st. She was 7 lbs. 10 oz. and 20 inches long. She is beautiful and sweet. Kevin and I are tired and my house has seen better days. I recently tried to remind myself that I can do this and I will survive. :)

In the middle of all the family changes, we had a summer packed full of fun! And now it is back to school!

Oh my goodness! How exciting! That makes me realize how long it's been since we've talked! :) Tess is beautiful. You have such a cute family! I can't imagine how busy you are with 4 little ones. Mark looks so handsome- congrats on getting baptized buddy! And Gwen has totally grown up! I would love to see you sometime, so if you ever want to meet up somewhere in the middle (Thanksgiving Point or Sandy area?), please let me know! And, how fun that you guys got a boat!! I bet you had a fun summer playing!
