Here I am again

I’m back. Like I was saying in the little post below, we are now disconnected and that means updates will be less frequent, though I’d like to make a goal of one a week. What’s new in the Lotz family?
I’ve read a few good books in the last 2-3 weeks, Fahrenheit 451, Liberalism is a Mental Disorder by M. Savage, and last week I finished 1984. I purchased Liberty and Tyranny by Mark Levin 2 weeks ago and in the few moments I’ve had with tax day I’ve read a couple of chapters, He’s right on the mark. Joe started it and was stopping every few minutes to read a passage to me, it’s awesome. I’d recommend those as well as Christlike Parenting by Dr. Latham, what a wonderful scriptural based parenting book.
What else? Oh I had been working a few days a week at the same tax office I worked at last year. April 15 has come and gone, thankfully. Cassidy would either go with me to the office or Joe would take her with him. I can’t tell you how stressful it was when she was with me, trying to keep her occupied and trying to get her to sleep in the server/back room and trying to get taxes assembled and answering the phone. Oh my goodness, Cassidy LOVED the phone cord. So much so that she became the recipient of the extra phone’s cord. It was cute. I think that now that I’m done with working, she’ll still go with Joe to his office every so often. It’s a nice break for me and a good bonding time for Joe and Cassidy (and Grandpa and Cousins Brian and Theresa who also work in the same office).
Speaking of taxes, Joe and I took Cassidy to the tea party held in Pleasanton Wednesday. What a fun time. The people there were so nice and the signs were a hoot. I think my favorite was “The constitution, another document they never read.” Funny thing was that my YW president was the one holding it. We also ran into Grandpa at the rally. I wish I could have held up a sign saying “Not the governments’ ATM machine.”
For all you California residents, here is a link to information about the propositions up for your vote on May 19. I thought I would link the info because most of the literature coming out isn’t explaining ALL that passage of these propositions entail. PLEASE read this if you care about what happens, either way, in our state.
What else? Here are some new photos of Cassidy and us from the last two months. She is getting so big and yet when people guess her age they often think she is 5-6 months old, so I guess she looks little to others. She’s a champion eater. We’ve given her: carrots (her fav), broccoli, peas, green beans, potatoes, sweet potatoes, cheese, bread, butternut squash soup, and applesauce. The only food that she has spit out was the canned peaches. I tried one, they weren’t very good. Often we can’t feed her fast enough. It’s adorable. She’s adorable. She’s starting to learn to pull herself up. If she’s on my lap she knows how to grab my shoulders and pull up. Oh and she’s learning how to feed herself bread and Cheerios. I can’t believe she turned eight months on Monday. Crazy.

She sure is cute! I think it's great that you are going without the internet at home- I'd die.. but that's probably why I should do it... huh. :) I know Bry would appreciate my attention more on him when he's home... I miss you guys- and the beautiful weather there.
