Hello World

In the past couple of weeks, Hope has officially turned into a toddler. What I mean by this, is the defiance has come out...Andrew actually started calling Hope - Defiance for a couple days. She's gotten sassy - she thinks it's funny to be told no. She keeps getting sillier and sillier. Anyhow, here are some recent pics - the first few are from us at a wedding.
Hope is having fun dancing with the big kids.

Shala and Jazzlyn came to visit and Hope was so enamored with Jazzlyn. She kept checking on her and trading toys with her. Pretty amusing.
A note on life with the Ringleins - okay, so it's totally fun to talk about Hope, and she does take up a good percentage of our time. But there are other things. Andrew is still playing poker professionally. It's got its ups and downs, but ultimately, it's such a blessing for him to work from home and have extra time to spend with our family. Angela is currently organizing a student exchange for a group from France coming to the Bay Area for a few weeks this summer. It's pretty fun. She also got released from her calling in Primary after 4 1/2 years and then promptly got called into the Relief Society as a secretary. It's been a lot of fun so far, and more fun to look forward to. Wishing you all lots of love!
