First Day of School!

The first day of School was bittersweet! I was excited to see them off yet secretly I miss having them around. The have both been in school this week since Wednesday and I got a taste of what my life will be like....well for the next little while and I have one word...YAHOOO! I think I will be able to accomplish so much of what I want and they will be learning and having fun with their friends at school. What a WIN/WIN situation! This Wednesday I was able to take Zoey to the Rec center all by herself and she loved it! I am glad I have these next few months to give her lots of mommy time before Izzy Mae gets here and hogs me up!

A Secular year ended

Its offical Chazz is done with Kindergarden! I am so proud of him and was near tears at his program today. He had a fashion show where he dressed up in his Jazz gear and had a basket ball and sweat bands on. He did such a great job singing too. He would hate that I said this but I really think he likes singing and is pretty good at it too. He is so excited to go to 1st grade and stay at school all day and eat lunch there too. Zyan is done with the 2nd grade tomorrow. I cannot believe how well she has done this year and how much she has learned. I think I forgot to post this but she made it into the second grade spelling bee. She did so well and made it through 4 rounds. She is great at reading and math and the only thing she needs to work on is her handwriting. She is excited for cursive in the third grade and I hope that she will have more of the same kids in her class again Zoey is longing for the day she can go to school! For now she goes to her pretend school (daycare) 2 mornings a week so I can keep up with all of my Huskiez work responsiblities. It counts for Zo because she gets to pack a sack lunch like Zy (its just her snack!).

14 1/2 weeks!

I went to the Dr. today! It was a normal appointment which is a great thing in the pregnancy world! I heard the heart beat, which was fun. It took the Doctor a little longer than I would like to find it though giving me time to be pesimistic. Then relief washed over me when the hoof beats started! 4 more weeks until we find out the gender, This is starting to become more real for me and I am allowing myself to get excited!!

Playing together!

This weekend Zack gave me some time off from the older kids for a Mothers Day weekend treat. They play in the field behind the shop, they have even made a lean to fort there. The grass was long and green in the field and Zack took some really good pictures on his phone. I love when Zyan and Chazz put aside their differences and play together, I know they will remember the time they share together "working" at the shop with Dad!

Soccer Star!!

Zyan has really started to enjoy Soccer this year. She made her first goal 2 games ago and the last game she scored again. These goals have really boosted her confidence and she is now a go getter on the field! Way to go Zy!

Butch Jr.!

Ever since I can remember my Dad has called me Butch for a very ugly hair cut that I gave myself when I was a kid. Well yesterday before church Zoey gave herself her very own version of a BUTCH haircut!! While I was upset that she did this yesterday amongst other things that she kept getting into, looking at her now you just have to laugh and wait for her bangs to grow back!

A special day!

Saturday April 9th:

Today Zyan was baptized! I am so proud of her choice to be baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. There was such a peaceful feeling as I watched her father baptize then confirm her. I loved the blessing he gave her after that to stay close to the Lord and it would help her to be able make future commitments to Heavenly Father. I am so lucky to have such a beautiful little girl who has a strong desire to do what it right and to obey the commandments. I am also so lucky to have my husband who also has those same desires. It was a great day today to be with Zyan and all of the family who came to support her. I hope I will always remember this day!
