Blog #1

hello family
mom is still trying to figure out this new world of technology. i would hardly call 10 years old new. through the many frustrations we have managed to load a picture and start typing our first blog. what an accomplishment. all is going well and we are tired of the 90 degree heat. we had the record most consecutive days over 90 degrees. we are ready for fall. we took family pictures and this was one of the best. sad huh? Dave (Penn State) Ben (Senior Year) are both busy with school. Jon and Brian are busy working in the Grand Teton National Park. Stephanie is working and enjoying the single life (see adjoining blog). Kristie is busy working for Dad while her kids stay here with Mom, who is the new relief society president of our ward. we have made this new blog to increase family communication, but this is not going to be a one way relationship, right? we expect to hear from all of you soon.

Blogs - to keep everyone updated

'Blogs are such a great invention. It can be an anonymous thing, a personal thing, or a very public open thing. It's a wonderful way to keep everyone updated on the goings on in your or your family's life without them having to join some "Space" or "Book" to do so. So whether or not you have your own blog, you are still able to read all about the Ader Family in this blog.

Mom will probably be the one that updates it most of the time - the rest of us hardly even get the chance to catch up with each other. And since Mom is not the most technologically advanced person - yet - please be patient. :) We'll teach her how to learn all the great computer tricks, but it will take time.

Be sure to let us know what the goings on are in all of your lives as well. Either start your own blogs, or just e-mail us periodically to let us know how you are doing. We love to keep in touch, but sometimes it can be difficult with so much going on all the time.

Please feel free to e-mail me if you would like to keep in touch as well. I would love to know what's going on with my family (I haven't even met all of the extended family yet).

Please check back again soon, as Mom will probably give you a rundown of what's been going on, where everyone is in the world and such soon . . .

But until then - mark this in your favorites and plan on visiting frequently. (Pictures will also be added periodically, just to make things exciting.)'
