I went to Boston last week with a bunch of other History teachers from my school.  Boston is a great place, full of tons of historical sites.  Here are some highlights (in no particular order):
 Coming into Plimoth Plantation.  We had a lot of fun exploring there!
 The rebuilt Mayflower II
 With the Patriot and British soldier at the North Bridge, where Lexington and Concord started
 Henry David Thoreau's statue reading an iPad.  We think we are funny.  We actually went to Walden Pond with him.  My mom says I need to get a grip on reality.  I know he is dead, but it was really a reenactor.
 The U.S.S. Constitution, which is the oldest working ship in America
I had the opportunity to weave, which I have never done.  I now understand why my mother wants to have a loom.  It is a very cool thing to do!

Why we love the summer

Because we can take an afternoon and go on a bike ride up the Provo Canyon!  Life is good!  You can definitely see a baby bump there--I can't hide it any more!

The news everyone has been waiting for . . .

We went in for the gender check ultrasound today.  We found out that we are not having a monkey, or a crocodile.  We are not having a lizard or an elephant.  Here are some pictures . . .
That's right . . . it's a BOY!!  We are soooo excited!  Chris says that his seed has prevailed. . . he is thrilled.  Chris's mom wonders if she will ever be able to buy dresses for a granddaughter.  But she is still pretty excited.  Chris also claims that he saw the "goods" before the ultrasound tech did, which she swears is not the case.

So, the name of our son will be Davis Christopher Rusch.  We are thrilled, and even started looking at little boy nursery goods before we even got home.  Don't you think he is cute?
