Wow I can't it's been so long for me to update! Just want to let everyone know Dalton and Jolinna are doing great. Dalton is finishing up 2nd grade and Jolinna 5th.  He has been pretty healthy this year except for having pneumonia this winter and ear infection.  He will be going down to the cities this summer for his annual check ups. He is getting excited to play baseball again this summer. Well I hope you all have a great summer!
