Oops, I've been neglecting my posting duties

Not much is going on here, other than fighting with my laptop. Chris installed an updated version of Norton and now I can barely get my email, and even more rarely send any out. It's frustrating, so I have been avoiding it altogether. We are going to look for a new ISP, as we suspect that is the real problem.

Troyer is away on a campout this weekend, with his Pathfinders group. He's up in the mountains, so I hope there is some snow for him to play in. The boys have been really disappointed at our mild winter (I, however, LOVE IT!) and whine about no snow. They still have 2 months or so left of winter, so they may yet get their wish.

Today was so nice we drove over to MILs just for a visit, and while there FIL asked if two of the boys could stay for the week. I agreed, as long as Noah would do the school work I assigned him (he has to research snakes online and draw me a diagram of snake guts - we had been having a discussion about it earlier in the day) and read a book and write me a report. Homeschooling is so nice! It's no big deal to just adjust the work when we need to so they can go have fun!

Ok, that is about it, just wanted you all to know that I'm still around!

Hi. I found your blog by way of Chris' blog (The Big Yellow House). I grew up in a house full of boys. I was the only girl, and I had five brothers. So, I've found your blog entertaining.
I currently have two kids, and one on the way. I'm having a hard time coming up with a boy's name. I already have an Elijah Christopher. I saw a few of your boy's names, and saw in an old post the samplers cross-stitched with two of their names. It looked like we have the same last name...except mine is spelled with an -on.
So, anyway, we have a really similar tastes in boy's names, and I was wondering what all six of your boy's first and middle names are. Since we have the same last name, they are sure to sound good with our last name.
If you don't mind helping me out with ideas, I thank you in advance. ;)
