Trying to get back on the boat....

I know it has been a very long time. Just to get you all caught up on things. We live in Mesquite, Nevada. Nate has joined a very fun practice here, and is loving every minute of it. His office web page is http://www.virginvalleysmiles.com/ go take a look and tell us what you think.

The kids are having a blast we swam all summer long, by the end of summer all 3 kids were jumping off the diving board and going down the big slide at the swim pool. Even my baby Cooper was jumping of the diving board by him self "SCARY". We have a big back yard with a basketball court and lots of grass to play on. At night we love to go catch bull frogs in the back yard and and some times we catch lizards. The kids are in heaven. We have made lots of new friends that we just love the be with.

We just love living in Mesquite, we feel that this is were we are going to be forever. It's so nice to finally feel rooted somewhere. However we still miss Ohio. Not that I want to move back, because it just would never be the same. It was the school experience that made it everything it was.

And of course we have season tickets to the U of U football. We have made it home to every game but the last one due to kids pooping and pucking all weekend.

So, anyways I am trying to get back on the ball with things, and keeping my blog up to date. I guess we will see what happens.

April Fools People

I feel so loved with all the e-mails and phone calls. But I guess I should finish the rest of the post. Nate and I are not getting divorced we are just separating for a short time. We are still madly in love. We are coming up on 9 years. The whole story is that Nate is going into practice with a amazing guy in Mesquite, Nevada. However he will start Work the end of April and we thought it would be best to have the kids finish school, soccer, and dance before we move them again. So, we will see how long this arrangement will work. I think I can do it. If Donna and Cliff Clinger can do it, than Nate and I can do it.

This has been in the works for a very long time. Now that everything is official we are letting everyone know. We are so excited to finaly find a place that fits are life long goals.

Sooo....the cat is out of the bag.

Nate and I are separating. He will be moving to Mesquite, Nevada were he will be in practice with a amazing doctor. It will be hard on the kids for awhile but I think that this is the best thing for all of us. Nate will be leaving in just a few weeks and he can't wait. The house in Mesquite is much bigger than the one in Ohio, which will be nice for the kids to run in. By the way I have to say UTAH is over rated and some days I wish I still leaved in Ohio. So there you have. Everyone keeps asking how things are going. I hope this answers all of your questions. So there you have it, the latest gossip on the Harris family.

Easter over the last 6 years

The good old days when life was hard, but looking back they were the easy days..

Jossi had jaundice and slept on the kitchen table for a couple of day. Did I tell you that she was born in Feb. and the awesome apt we lived in had the furnace go out the day we brought her home. So we had space heater all over the place trying to keep her warm. (scary)

This was in are awesome one bedroom apt. at Uof U student housing. Those were the good old days. Wow nothing like sleeping by the wall with blinds hitting you in the face when the ac kicked on.

Don't you just love the cement walls we had. By the way Jossi is was the cutest baby girl.

This was 3 weeks before we moved to Ohio for school. Jossi was 5 months old.

Ute's Parade


The kid's and I went downtown to welcome the Ute's Football Team home. I can't believe how many people were there. One the way home I asked Joslynn what here favorite part of the parade was and she said "duh Mom, the football players." I should have known.

Why is it that almost every time we go out of town someone gets sick. This time we went to St. George to see some friends and with out fail one of the kids gets sick. Joslynn on the drive down said that her head hurt. So I gave her some Tylenol and we though she was fine. We went to a birthday party then to the Dickens Festival. While we were at the Dickens Festival she said that her stomach hurt. We went back to our room and all that night I could not sleep because she kept getting up and going to the bathroom. She was breathing funny so of course as a mother you stay up and watch them sleep. Then in the morning she came out of the bathroom and I just new that I needed to jump fast and grab the garbage can. Let's just say that sometimes it is nice to be in a hotel because you don't care about the bedding the way you do when it's your stuff.
Nate then asked how can you move so fast when you were just a sleep. I guess Dad's just don't have the reflexes that Mom's do.

After that Nate and I took turns keeping the boys busy so that Jossi could sleep. She was so sick and looked like she was on her death bed. She would cry because her head hurt and she could not sit up with out throwing up.

Later we had a dinner to be to so I was going to go and leave Jossi and Nate at the hotel. Then Jossi started to cry because she wanted to go see her friends Aubrey and Emma. I can't believe how resilient kids are. Jossi ran around her friends house like she was never sick. Kids are just amazing sometimes.

On a happier note. The weather in St. George is sooo nice that I think that I just might move there.
