Last night, Jen and Dave Hessenthaler invited us over for dinner with some other couples that live in Byron, and we had a blast! Jaran, usually the extremely less social one, said that he really enjoyed himself, and how great the guys were... and all of us girl migrated to the other living room to leave the boys to their talk on politics and other boring subjects, while we talked about babies and family issues and high school! Besides Jen and Dave, Josh and Shelley Sanders, Caleb and Lexi Sanders, Brandon and Serena Hessenthaler, Adam and Ranae Clark, and Heather and Cody Wagner were there. I was completely opposed to living in Byron until last night... now I almost want to! Part of that reason was thinking that it was just a bunch of old people in Byron, and I didn't want to go to church with a bunch of crazy old people... but now I'm okay with it. Problem is- there is NOWHERE to rent around here. We need to get home and get the house finished so we can get it on the market, but after that- there is no reason to stay there. Both Jaran and I are really starting to look forward to getting here as quickly as possible and starting over! So wish us luck. Here's to hoping it will all work out!
The Baker Gang, the fantastic five, whatever you want to call us! Well, not whatever, only if it's nice! We are headed by Jaran, who will turn 31 on the 20th of September, I-Shannon- am 26, McKie is 5, Brensyn is 3 1/2 and Ansleigh just turned two in August. We are currently residing in Byron, and Jaran is busy building houses! We are renting our house in Three Forks, and hope that the renters will buy it at the end of two years!
