Hi, everyone! Well, our last blog, Fox and Amy in Japan, just didn't seem fitting now that we're in Utah. So, it's time to update. And I have a feeling that we'll be in Utah for quite a while, so hopefully I won't have to do this again soon.

As most of you know, we're here while Fox attends Utah State University. He is going for a Master's in American Studies with an Emphasis in Folklore (with an emphasis on pop culture with an emphasis on comic books with an emphasis on post-911 hero worship in comic books--whew!). He also has a job teaching two sections of freshman English and is making blood money on the side (that's plasma, people!).

Amy (well, that's me, so I will just say "I" from now on) is busy keeping Cash away from the cats and trying to live on a very limited budget. I am also growing a baby girl, who will make her appearance in November. In the meantime, I am trying to figure out a new hobby, besides doing health research and the occasional business venture online. Japan has cured me of my movie and magazine addiction, so I am going to attempt to sew, I think. And take guitar lessons, if I can find a guitar teacher who wants to learn the piano.

Cash has just starting talking--a lot! He loves to babble and sing. He'll repeat any words you say and loves to point out colors. He is now a Raffi fan, thanks to the Logan library's gigantic children's CD collection. Cash is working on anger management, specifically abuse of kitties. He's making progress! He is also now an occasional cloth-diaper wearer, as his mama decides if it's actually cheaper to cloth diaper (verdict is still out, since I have to use coin laundry).
So, we look forward to keeping you updated as we brave our first winter in Logan!

We're glad you are so close to us now. We will have to find a way to get together some time!
