We think that he is a Jedi but that is beside the point. About a month later we visited Ellensburg and Tyson was able to do some recording with friends as we celebrated his birthday at home. Sis Taryn, Aunty Shoo Shoo, Grandma Boppa and Marilyn all visited to meet this little newcomer for the first time. Kai gave his first smile in response to something other than sleep, gas or poo and we caught it all on tape.
The following week we headed to Young Lifes Wildhorse Canyon where Tyson led songs and worship for a large group of First Responder families from the Portland, Vancouver area. The camp was a huge blessing to their lives and we had a blast meeting up with our friend Kacie Walters who is an intern and hanging with Ian E., Sam and Kay; the crew that helped pull whole camp thing together.
Grandma Julie and cousin Jaylee visited from Cali and spent some time playing with Kai, it was a great visit. Memorial Day weekend rolled around the last weekend of May and the Smith fam headed to the Oregon Coast for some camping. All three of us were able to fit in the tent and Kai loved having his his own little sleeping bag.
June has rolled around and Tyson just received a promotion at work he is now the Director of Education and the Evergreen Aviation Museum which is a nice gesture. Tracy started back working about a month after the pregnancy and has the priviledge of working some of that from home and bringing Kai in the part of the time. She is working about half-time from the pre-pregnancy days but gets a good amount of work done on Mondays when Tyson spends the day with Kai. He is currently a Tues-Sat and it seems to work well with our schedule right now. We are excited for the future and what the summer will bring...we'll keep you posted. Thanks for listening in. The Smiths.
