First Day of Kindergarten

The long awaited day of Kindergarten Finally arrived. Joshy was up bright and early and could not wait to get on the bus. The bus does not come until 8:45 and Josh had his backpack on at 7:30 ready to go. He kept coming in my room while I was getting ready just checking to see if I was ready to go yet. He was so excited. He said I didn't need to walk him to the bus stop. I walked him to the bus stop and then and I also followed the bus to school. I even got a little choked up as he walked away. I was surprised at that because I thought I was prepared for him to go. He loved school. The only thing negative he said was that the playgroud was to small. However,on Friday he said he liked the playgroud now. He loves it! The pictures didn't turn out the greatest because of the sun. He is not a fan of the sun and pictures. But here they are.

14 Years and Counting

From 2009-08-25 wedding

From 2009-08-25 wedding

I can't believe that it has been 14 years since we were married in the San Diego Temple. We have grown so much and learned so much about each other and about ourselves. We shocked our families when we called to tell them that after knowing each other only 3 weeks we were going to get married. My parents were still recovering from my brothers wedding and now they had to plan mine. Your parents were moving to Texas. But we did it and it was beautiful.
When you think back over what we have gone through in the last 14 years it is amazing. We have both struggled through school, dealt with me being sick the first 3 months of our marriage. Graduated and found jobs, moved, dealt with the heartbreak of not being able to have children. Blessed with the miracle of adoption and our sweet boy Andrew. Moved again. Waited 5 years and again blessed with the miracle of adoption of our babies Josh and Alex. Moved. Started job and then another job. The list could go on and on. Yet through it all the one constant was us. Our love, our faith, our desire, our testimony. We made it. I would not be the person I am today without you by my side. You have picked me up and carried me through my darkest nights. You have laughed with me, cried with me and been there for me. I would not be who I am without you and our boys would not be who they are without you. You are my rock, my love, my life and my world. I love you Eric. I thank my Heavenly Father for you daily. It has been quite a ride and I look forward to even more. I love you always and forever.

FIrst Day of School and ...

Well I sent my oldest off to school today. We had a little trauma earlier in the week when he realized he was on the early start track. If you know Andrew you know he likes to sleep. We changed him to the later start time so that he could go on the bus with Josh and help him. I love this boy and I can't believe how big he is getting. He is in 4th grade!! I hope for him this year that he will continue to learn and grow, make new friends and love learning. He is a smart boy and I know that he can do whatever he really puts his mind to. Have a great year Andrew!! I love you!

We are Alive!!!

I know it has been awhile since our last post. Yes we are still alive and we are finally moved into our house. I love it! Thanks to my mom for helping me get it all decked out. The only thing left to do is find some chairs or love sacs for the theater room. Laying on the floor is okay but not the greatest.
Alex did Itty Bitty Soccer for 6 days and did ok. As long as I was right there and he got a soccer ball all to himself he was happy, otherwise no such luck. So maybe he is not a team player... He is a funny boy and we love him lots. As you can tell from the picture he was thrilled with it. He really was until he walked into the building.
Josh learned how to ride a two wheeler and is so proud of himself. First thing every morning he is out the door riding his bike. He had soccer practice for the first time last night and is excited to see lots of his friends on the team.
Andrew is having a blast playing the WII and hanging out. His friend came over the other day and he was in heaven. He likes to go outside when forced and he will ride his bike.
Eric and I have just been taking care of the boys. Nothing to exciting on our parts.
