Hi Family!
Thank you Jeff & Laura and all of you for a wonderful reunion! Dad & I marveled how very blessed we are to have such a great family and what a choice time we had with one another. It is such a blessing to see our grandchildren having so much fun together laughing and playing together. Also to see our children loving to be with one another.
Yes, Dad & Mom have returned! Monday after going for physical therapy on my knee & leg we headed out to Moosehorn Lake in the Uintahs. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. The scenery was heavenly! It was cool but we loved it. We came home on Friday as the crowds were ascending. Being out in nature really rejuvenates us. It was the first time we have taken out our trailer other than the reunion this summer.
We are so glad to have this method of communicating with you all. Thanks Jeff & Laura for setting it up. We hope all is well with all of you.
Good luck, Steve & Candee on your new adventure. We would like to hear more about it. We will be praying for you. Dad & I pray every day for all of you in your decisions, that you will be guided and protected from evil.
Melanie and Emily got home from the hospital on Tuesday and are trying to adjust. It is really going to be a challenge for them all. Continue to keep them in your prayers.
Saturday, Sept. 6th will be the 30th Anniversary of the Huntsville Stake formation. You are all invited to the celebration. If you are interested call us for more details.
We hope all of you grandchildren are excited to be back to school! I remember as our children started school you would have a blessing. I know that helped you. We will be praying for all of you. Also good luck Curt with your new schedule 10 hrs. 4 days a week and school.
We love you all and pray for you. We hope to see you soon.
Mom & Dad

Off on my last road trip. Yea!!!! Blackfoot Idaho. Just a few days. Just to let everyone know I have started due dilligence with buying into the Health Care Recruiting Business. I am excited and scared at the same time. The Lord has really helped us with every step though and we know its the right thing to do. I will be leaving LSI in a couple of weeks. I am planning to ask them if I can still sell while I get this going but I am not counting on that. Love you all and wish you the best. See you soon?


PS- Jen loved your update. Its great to share those experiences with you (good and bad). Your in my prayers.
Thanks Jeff! Mom left me a message on Monday and said they would be coming home either Friday or Saturday. I miss them and will be glad to have them home. Are you heading to the cabin this weekend?

Jenny, WOW I hope you get feeling better! Thanks for the update.

Does anyone know when Mom and Dad are going to be home?


We are here!!!

Hey sorry we haven't contributed yet! We too have been very busy. We had a blast at the reunion, a great big thanks to Jeff and Laura. We vote next year to go for a whole week! It didn't feel like quite enough! It was super fun! We said next year even if we have a trailor, we doubt we'd stay in it. We'd miss out on too much (Steve and Candee - flashes in the night that blind you while trying to go to sleep, flashlight dancing, and of course, CODFISH. Jayden's new favorite game!)...Thanks again to all!
Last week, Maddie and Jayden went back to school on Thursday. Yup, our baby girl started Kindergarten and she loves it! When I picked her up the first day, anticipating that she would be missing me, as I missed her. She was happy to see me, but her first reply was, "But I didn't want to come home yet!" Then she told me that she made a new friend. It is so exciting and she looks so grown up in her uniform, her dad says she's a little school girl. She hates the uniforms because they "look like boys!" and there is no pink. The kids have to wear blue, red, white or green polos and navy or khaki bottoms. We love it, it makes it easy to get them ready. Jayden is such a great big brother, he goes and pick her up at her class after school and waits for carpool and makes sure she is buckled in. He loves having her at school with her. He watches the clock at school until she gets there at 12:30. We truly feel blessed to have the two very special kids we have. It is a little sad, I'm quite lonely during the day, so far, it is veeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrryyyyy quiet, my ears go numb!
Yesterday was not a very good day, to say the least. I ended up in the ER. My woman monthly thing and my endometriosis was so painful, I wasn't sure if I could walk, we almost called an ambulance. They checked my appendix, because I was having pain in my side the day before. But after all the labs they said I should see my OB and sent me home on morphine, whoa, that's a trip, and gave me a perscription of Loritab. So, we are doing a lot better today and hope it continues.
Jason is very stressed at work. He is so busy and working a lot and not getting commissions yet, so money is. NOT right now. He has been told after 6 months he will be more than happy with what he makes, but is all the stress and time going to be worth it?
We are supposed to go to the Mortensen parking lot reunion on Friday, but for health reasons, we may not until Sat or Sunday, camping (in a tent) may not work for me!
We hope you are all well and happy and we love you tons!!!

Missing you all

Hey it's Steve. I am in Boise this week and really miss you all. I loved the reunion. Can everyone do another one next week. I have some great pictures that I will post next week. I also want to plead with all of you to use this site. It really is great and can keep us connected especially with our busy schedules. Jeff and Laura thank you for your efforts. If any of you need help I can as well as Jeff and Laura. It's really easy.
Just an update on us. I will be home for 4 days and then off to Blackfoot for 10 days. The kids start school next week. They are all excited to get in a ruetine again. Especially me! Candee is finishing the kitchen this week with the other cabnets and the desk. She would love a call from any of you, she gets a bit lonely while I am gone.

Love you all,
Tesch Tribe

Thanks everyone for a great reunion!! We love you all and enjoyed being with you. We are so fortunate to have such a close family in both relationships and in proximity. I was talking to a coworker and he asked how far family were traveling and from what States for our reunion. He couldn't believe that we all live so close. He also admitted that they don't have a reunion because of some hard feelings that haven't healed for years.

Thanks for working so hard to make it good for everyone. It seemed like we didn't even worry about who was assigned to what, everyone just worked together.

We love you.

Nice photo's Steve. The one with the seagull by Niagra looks like a postcard. Looks like you had fun as well.

Badlands and Reunion

Our Badlands and Reunion Trip

Jeff, Noah and Joey hiked down the spillway. It was pretty cool!

We slept on the trailer. It was an amazing night of star gazing. None of us wanted to sleep.

Auston jumped off the wall at the spillway (cousin peer pressure is pretty strong).

The kids had fun just climbing up the hills.

Tesch Tribune

We are starting this blog to try it as an option for our family newsletter. I feel like we have been losing touch not having our newsletter. I hope this will work well. We can discuss it at the reunion and make sure that everyone knows how to do it.
