Help!!!!!

Wendy and I were watching a show tonight after the kids had gone to bed...then suddenly we heard the bedroom door open. We hear the pitter patter of feet run down the hall (which is not unusual because Katherine and Ethan wait too long to go to the bathroom and end up dancing in front of the toilet). Then a few seconds later we hear someone running up towards the kitchen and we see Ethan prancing like a horse and simply said "Help!" while running around the kitchen in a circle. I jumped up and escorted him to the toilet. From Wendy's previous experience, I SAT him down on the toilet instead of letting him stand up. That's another story for another day.

School is around the corner

Well, school is just around the corner and Wendy is shopping for school supplies one child at a time. She claims that it is less stressful and I guess it is. I come home from work and see bags and bags of stuff. Wendy has her trusty little sharpy handy and writing names on all supplies - one at a time, even each crayon. I am glad I didn't have to go through that when I was a kid. Ethan is skeptical about his first year of school, but we are trying to persuade him little by little. Sometimes he says he doesn't want to go. It will definitely be different this year. Three children will be in school and one at home. Wendy will be in school, too. She has four more classes to go. It should be a breeze for her. I wish there was a button I could push to keep her from stressing so much about school. She always does really well in her classes.
Jamie will be in the 4th grade, Katherine will be in the 2nd grade and of course Ethan will be in kindergarten. I usually don't go to work until all of them are on the bus the first day of every school year. We start out with a big breakfast and we take pictures of them by the wall to show their age and height. We also take a picture of them standing at the bottom of the driveway waiting on the bus and getting on the bus. I have to remember to give each of them a Father's blessing before the start the school year.
Wow, the summer passes so quickly. It always seemed that we were out for 3 months when I was little, but I could be wrong. Everything was slower and bigger back in those days anyway. I will make sure that I post a picture or two.

Family History

Hey Guys just wanted to let you know that I got on the new family history site tonight and tried to do some research, especially on Mom's side, and finally made some links to some ancestors that I knew were already out there. I still have to do some more linking later, but at least I've done this much. There are some more paths I need to try, too. If you haven't already looked at the new family search website, you need to do so, because it is really neat.

Journal Entry

Well, I decided to go ahead and make a blog like my brothers (or their wives) so that I could see what all the fuss was about ...and it was fun! It is a place where i can finally put pictures that we take and everyone can see them. I am still figuring it out but still have a long way to go.
Jamie along with other valiants, sang today in church. She sang real well. Jeffery still won't stay in nursery for a long period of time without making a major disturbance.
We just got finished with the Glenn Family Reunion. We had lots of fun and each family had their own color of shirts made. Our color was iris blue. Each shirt had on the front "In the Glenn Family... and on the back "Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city. That's why we have family reunions".
