Family Pictures

Izzy is back on schedule with her chemo and almost out of the consolidation phase. The next phase starting in a couple of weeks will be another induction phase that will have her going to the clinic every 10 days for chemo as opposed to every 7 days.

Her hair and spirits are still hanging in there like champs. We continue to feel so grateful for how well she is doing and the great support with which we are surrounded. However, we still have our bad days. We can definitely describe the last few months as the best of times and the worst of times.

We'll be working with a new change in a couple of weeks as I begin my internship in Dallas for six weeks. Family in Utah and Idaho will be taking Lorin and Ryan there for the first four weeks; and then family and friends will be coming to Ann Arbor for the last two weeks to help.

We took some family and Izzy pictures about a week ago that I've posted below. The girls, including Kerri, look amazing.

I can see Lolo will be paying her own way through college with her modeling career. Cory, y'all need to oil yer shotgun. We thought of you yesterday when the kids "interviewed" a new babysitter...a 15 year old boy who did very good barnyard imitations on the trampoline with the kids. He did a sheep, and before I could warn him that my kids only know one way to "deal" with a sheep, Luke grabbed him by the "kack" and tried to lift him! That's my Future Farmer of America! PS...he got the job. Love you guys! Dan and Jess

Adorable! Glad to hear you are all hanging in there. If one of you had to be bald for these portraits, it's a good thing it was the ugliest one! ;)

Love the pictures you guys!!! You make one beautiful family :) I think my favorite picture of the girls is them all sitting in each other's laps-they have the best smiles.
