Welcoming baby Lucas

Last week Nolan and I went out to my sister's in Tacoma, Washington. We went mainly to search for possible summer jobs out there but it also happened to be the same week my sister was planning on having her second child. We got to spend a ton of time taking care of our nephew Bobby while his parents were in the hospital having the baby. Joseph Lucas Clegg (calling him Lucas) was born in the morning on Wednesday May 12. Everything went well, and everyone was healthy. Bobby had never been separated from his parents before so it was pretty rough on him at times, but he became really attached to Nolan and myself and I think it was a big help that we were able to take care of him and dote on him while his parents were gone and the new baby was coming.

While we were there we were able to go down to Portland for a day to see Nolan's parents. They were very generous and welcoming to us. They took us out to dinner and we had a lot of quality chatting. It also turned out that Nolan's dad had to go up to the Tacoma area for the weekend for work. Kim came up for the weekend to stay with him, and on Saturday she was able to come with Nolan, my dad, Bobby and I to the zoo. It was so much fun.

I did get a job offer in Tacoma, however we're still waiting to hear back about jobs out there for Nolan. So were still not very sure what we'll be doing this summer. We're still weighing all of our options and also waiting to hear about some jobs here in Logan. Who knows where we'll end up. At least we have a break from school. It's very needed at this point.

That's exciting that Vanessa & Christian had another boy! I didn't know she was even pregnant! I think I am officially out of the loop being out east. That so fun that you were able to be up there to see Bobby and their new baby. Good luck with the job hunt!
