Rumor control

First, the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated!
Although it would be hard to tell from the utter silence at the blog over the last year.
It has not been high on my list of things to do, but I miss it somewhat and do enjoy reading your blogs, so I must keep up my end of the deal.

What have the Bergers been up to for the past several month?
Here is the short and sweet version:

Last Fall, Christin and Todd became GRANDPARENTS!

Keaton James Rietz was born November 20, 2007.

Here are the proud parents, Cody and Maggie, back in December when we went to visit in December.

Maggie says that he is already trying to walk! More pictures to come...

Other news, we are well on our way to having a petting zoo here in Minnesota.
(We had to give away our dog, Skip, because he killed our first batch of poultry.)
We currently own:
7 cats
2 fish
1 pigeon
13 ducks
26 chickens
3 guineas
1 bottle pig

Most of them are 4H projects, but the chickens will supply us with eggs, and the ducks and pig some meat in the fall. The guineas are supposed to be good bug eaters and don't let strangers on the yard without making a ruckus, so they earn their keep, too.

One other major development in our home is in April, Christin began working for Avera (a large hospital system in Sioux Falls) and Todd is now the stay-at-home parent and home-school instructor. big change, but working out.

Please come back and read again, as I will update the blog more often!

I am so glad you are alive, you have no idea. You should be on Facebook, super easy to stay in touch. Remember Antun Zvonar "tuna" we found him there!!!!

Glad you are doing well. Do your kids have any idea how awesome their zoo keeper, er Dad is. Sounds like fun. I read your post aloud and my kids said "where does he live?" "can we visit him?"


We leave for Montana this morning.

Love to all!

Todd -- so as I was leaving work I scrolled through my "friends blogs" favorites list, just in case you might say hello. And I see that you did! (albeit 3 weeks ago....)

I thought for a scary moment that you and Christin had become parents yet again and wondered how on earth you'd be managing....but congratulations on, probably, being the first '95 Cobber Grandparent!

Meanwhile, do go to my profile and look. I have been blogging now (on my singleness and dating attempts) for about three months. If time permits....

(and I agree with Jen. Facebook is way easy and it is SWIMMING with Cobbers. I have found everyone I probably want to find.....including Rick Simonson from Mean, Lean, Club 15.)

Hugs to all Bergers.
