Why no more summer vacations?
Why no more snow cones?
Why am I staying up till 11:30 or midnight?
Why do I not get to see Case everyday until 9:00 at night?
Why am I having cereal or something made in the crock pot every night for dinner?
Why am I feeling stressed and overwhelmed?
Why is all the money we have saved gone?
Why? Why? Why?

Because summer is over and were back in school.

I'm a new aunt and Case is a new uncle to...
Landon Terry Hess
7lbs. 3 oz.
19" long
Proud Parents: Jared and Amy Hess
Proud and Excited Sister: Lydia Jane Hess

He has lots of hair on the sides, but little hair on top

It's so fun to have another little baby in the family, he is so cute and I think I have even seen him give a little smile. I just think he is happy to belong to some of the best parents in the world and to have such a helpful older sister.

Congratulations Hess Family!!

We Love Elder C

Today my cousin Scotty is leaving on his Mission to the Philippines. The time Scotty would leave on his mission I thought would never come and now that it is finally here, it has struck each and everyone of us pretty hard. For the next 2 years we will not see Scotty running through the field, we will not see him riding the lawn mower to mow the field, and we will not get annoyed by him when he just walks into the house without a knock. Although the next 2 years will be hard without Scotty, we all know that he is going to be in the right place at the right time. We all know Scotty is doing the right thing. For the next 2 years Elder C (Elder Crandall) will be having the time of his life.
