I have been slacking big time on my blog.  That is due to the fact that I have been home in Utah for the last couple of weeks.  It was great to be home for that amount of time right in the middle of my season.  The trip was originally going to be about 5 days to pick up Suzanne and Max and bring them back here to Turkey with me.  Soon after I arrived home, Max developed one of his trademark ear infections and it was off to the doctors.  We were then informed that he needed to have tubes placed in his ears.  The surgery went great and he was a champ, hardly cried at all.  After the surgery, you could see an immediate change.  His nose cleared up and his ears stopped hurting him.  In fact he kept telling us, "My ears feel better."  So I stayed the rest of the next week to make sure everything was okay.
