Getting Started

Due to the fact that our family is starting to leave the nest and information concerning the family tends to be corrupted by word of mouth we are starting a blog. We have seen it be very successful in other families even among some of our own extended family members.

As introduction we are the Stewart family from Las Vegas, Nevada. I'm Clair and my wife's name is Marlene. Our oldest, Matt, will soon be serving in the El Salvador, San Salvador, West Belize mission for a period of 24 months. This will be his first foray away from home as he explores Central America as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, better known as the Mormons. Jenna our 2nd oldest still attends high school but has ambitions to attend Southern Utah State University in Cedar City, Utah upon graduation. Our other two children, Spencer and Emily, are enjoying middle school still but have plans also to leave the desert after high school. Our hope is that this blog will still keep our family in touch with some of the day to day events happening in our lives without accumulating higher phone bills. That's the gist of our thoughts, we still have much to learn about the information distribution by web.

Yeah for having a blog! We decided to start one for the same reasons plus I figured it would be a good way to keep a journal of the cute and funny things the girls do around here.
In response to the comment on our blog about the name all I have to say is vote! I am trying to beat Tyler out and win with Savanna but I am the underdog right now so make sure that everyone goes on to vote. If you send me everyone's emails then I can send them invitations so that each of you can vote! I believe I sent invites to Jenna, Matt & Marlene but don't know if I have anyone else's email.
