Welcome to the Cartwright Family homepage! 

Greetings friends and family!  After a long hiatus, we have finally updated our website.  As many of you know, it has been quite a busy year for the Cartwright family. We moved back to Austin in February, after finding a house and neighborhood that we love.  We spent a few months renovating the house and now truly feel settled and “home.”  Matt is still with United Road, but now works from home and travels to Detroit and other areas as needed.  Kate is walking (running), climbing, talking, belly-laughing, and letting her personality shine through more and more each day.  She loves music, dancing, play-doh, baby-dolls, blowing bubbles, and eating any kind of fruit.  She is still not sure about being in the car or finger-painting, and downright hates when snack-time is over.  She has grown into a curious and sweet-natured little girl and I am so blessed to be her mom.  Take a look at her first birthday party and some other summer pictures to see what she is up to and how she has changed.   

After what felt like endless preparation, I took my boards in August and am still breathing sighs of relief!  Matt and I celebrated my freedom from studying and his much-deserved vacation time with a trip to Costa Rica.  We repelled down waterfalls in a rainforest, saw a volcano erupt, and came face-to-face with several white-faced monkeys, in addition to relaxing and seeing quite a bit of the country.  Our pictures are posted if you would like to take a look. 

Oliver is enjoying his bigger backyard and warmer climate.  He spends most days sunbathing on the deck between dips in the pool and tolerating Kate’s pokes, prods, and pulls.   

We hope that this finds you in good health and happiness and we hope to see you soon!

Love, Leanne, Matt, Kate, and Oliver
