Scotland Here We Come (in 2012).

Calling all McArthurs! It has been suggested (and I fully agree) that we should go do England and Scotland on a family vacation. If we plan on going in 2012 this should give everyone enough time to save up their money. The Olympic Games will be held in London that year so it has been suggested that we go about a month before the Olympics so we can see the structures they will be using but not have to pay the high prices of the actual games themselves.

The photo I have attached to this posting is of Dunstaffnage Castle, this castle located in Scotland is the castle that the McArthur Clan was awarded for it's support of Robert the Bruce. Unfortunately, when King James I attempted to subdue the clans of highlands in the 15th Century the McArthur Clan bore the brunt of his attempt and lost control of the castle. The castle ruins still stand and are available for us to go see.

Let's get saving and see how many of us can go!

HI everyone! It's Andee. I thought I would update you on how our lives are going. We are so happy living in Ferron, Utah aka the middle on nowhere. Lars is loving the UHP, even though times are tough right now. Let me take this oppertunity to say "Don't be a moron on the highways!!" Please be safe, the troopers do not enjoy cleaning up your messes, and seeing families hurt. Anyway, He loves the job and has been busy remodeling our home. He enjoys camping, fishing, and you guessed it, riding motorcycles. He got a Zune for his b-day and loves it too. I am a happy busy SAH mom. I am a Mary Kay consultant, and I think I will soon be doing Scentsy. I enjoy making cards, and scrapbooking. I am the primary chorister and loving it. We have been married for 7 and a half years, and still like each other. Tank is nearly 6 years old! He starts 1st grade on his birthday. He is very smart and loves to figure out how things work. He asks questions and observes everything we do. He loves math, must have got that from Lars, and reading. Kruz is 4 1/2 and our wild man. He goes full throttle from sun up to sun down. He loves to help his mom, and I love it when he helps me. He is so excited for preschool and loves to learn. Both the guys are in our local wrestling program (of course), and play tee ball. They have the best coach, me, like me and Jess had mom and Julie coach us. I am not near as good of a coach as they were, but that's life. Sadee, our little brown eyed Bella, is about at feisty as her namesake. She got attitude, but we love it. She is such a girly tomboy. She loves skirts, and mud. She could melt the heart of even the toughest person, with her beautiful smile. We love to camp, fish, swim, and play as a family. We love our garden, the kids love eating stuff they watch grow. We are so happy and hope to see you all soon.Well, thats us! Good luck Megan with the baby!
