Boy oh Boy have things been a little crazy around here. In order to not get really behind (well more so than I already am) I want to just update really quick on everyone in the family.
This has been a big time time in his life. He has learned so much in the last few weeks! He is taking about 10 steps now. He just laughs so much while doing it! He is also talking quite a bit too he now can say uh oh, hello, hi, dad, mom, bye-bye, thank you, kitty, tickle-tickle,wow, whoa, and almost grandma. He will even say meow when you ask him what a kitty says and oo oo oo when you ask him what a monkey says. (That is his favorite) He is still really good. He is very content to sitting back and watching what is around him an rarely cries. He is pretty shy too. But when you get him laughing it is hard to get him to stop. He's a pretty funny kid.
What a sweet thing she is. Determined, but sweet.She still brings me flowers ever single day. I can't believe how thoughtful she is sometimes. She has learned a lot in the last school year. She just finished her pre-school class last week and was so happy to show me what she has been doing all year. She did great! Her dad and I are really proud of her. I am amazed at her ability to draw. I have a feeling that she is going to grow up to be very artistic. She is learning how to ride her bike and how to jump rope and still goes to gymnastics every week. She stays pretty busy. Her favorite thing to do is play with all the other kids outside but she almost always is barefoot.
Little Dude just graduated from pre-school last week. He too did awesome this year. He is very excited for Kindergarten. I can't believe that he is old enough to go. He is growing up to be quite the comedian. He loves to make people laugh and tell jokes. (I wonder where he gets that from? Not me for sure, but he is a lot like his dad!) He absolutely adores his little brother. Every chance he gets he wants to help out. The other day we discovered a hidden talent of his that since we have been working on. He is awesome at hitting a baseball. When he first picked up the bat I thought I would see what most kids do. But he can hit almost every ball thrown at him and can hit it pretty far too! He loves to be outside riding his bike, playing with friends, jumping on the tramp or inside with some art project of some sort.
He has been so busy holding down the fort here while I have been gone. I have been really proud to see how well things have been going because of all his hard work. He has been really busy at work and with the EQ Pres. at church. As if it wasn't enough his mom has been sick and in and out of the hospital. He has been stressed, but is handling it all very well. He has always really liked working in the yard and since the weather is finally better he has been able to spend more time on his list of projects out there. He has even found time for a new hobby. Paint balling. Even will the bruises all over he still likes it!
I graduated from my JetBlue training class last week. No more working every night until midnight. I started my shift on Sunday and so far I like it. I am really worried about working every Sunday, but I have a feeling that it will work out. I got released at the Secretary of the Young Women Pres. and was called to be a Mia Maid advisor. This change is actually bitter sweet for me. While I will spare you the details I will say that I do know that there is purpose behind everything and that the new Presidency will do an awesome job.
To celebrate all the happenings in our lives lately we went out to a movie the other night. We went and saw Speed Racer and ate dinner there. It was a REALLY cool movie and we all enjoyed it. It was really nice to spend time together as a family!
The kids got to spend the night with their Grandma and Grandpa the other night and had a blast! It was nice for me too! I got to go to bed early and sleep in late so I could catch up on some much needed sleep! We spent the rest of the day cleaning the house and preparing for summer.
Even though there is lots going on in our lives I feel stronger as a family and am happy with all that we have all accomplished! We truly are very blessed!
