Grandchild #38

For those of you who are keeping track, we have just welcomed grandchild #38 into the family.  Jesse Mitchell Monsour was born on November 7, 2010 at 9:38pm.  He was 8 lbs and 2 ozs and 20.5 inches long.  He has dark hair and what looks to be blue eyes at present.  His siblings are excited about another brother, but none more than Teddy who finally has a little brother to play with.  Jesse & Mommy are doing well and were blessed to have Grandma Marshall visit after the birth.  She was a tremendous help. Right now the count is 18 grandsons...

You can see some of the photos taken here. There is never a lot of time to catch up on all that has happened since your last visit, but we enjoyed seeing all of the kids, especially the brand new ones - like Caden...

Midwestern Tour, Part I

Here are the highlights from our last Tour in the month of May.  Forgive us for the delay in posting about it. Thursday, May 13... We left a few days early for our trip to Rolla, Missouri.  The car was once again jammed full with instruments, luggage, and other necessities.  Dad took a picture of us right before leaving.  We looked like we had been through the mill already, but that's just part of the process.  We made it to Louisville, KY, that night--where we had already planned to stop and tried to locate a suitable hotel.  The rates...
