Darts, Wildcats, Spartans and Chargers! that summer's come and gone we find ourselves back in school and back in school we are. This year we are at 4 different schools!

Jason got transferred this year and will be teaching at Davis High School, he's the dart!! He's had fun getting to know the kids as well as the staff. This is the largest staff he's been with, 16 teachers and 2 secretaries. We all like that his commute is so much closer!!

I'm back at Weber State University. "GO WILDCATS!" I see a small light at the end of this tunnel. If I play my cards right, I'll have my associates this spring! This is exciting for's been alot of work! I really should've figured out what I wanted to be when I grew up, BEFORE I grew up!! Oh well...we've made it and now we'll just wait and see how long it takes to get into the actual nursing program. Once that starts I'll have two years and be D.O.N.E.

Taylorann is this family's first Spartan!! She's in her first year of Jr. High. She's really luck cuz they just rebuilt the new South Ogden Jr. High. It's a beautiful school. She's already tried out for the softball team and was actually really happy she didn't make it cuz that meant she could try out for the school play!! She's such a positive, happy person!! She is having such a great time meeting and making new friends. She made me laugh the other day when she told me how shocked she was to hear so many boys with "deep voices". lol!

Karson is a big 'ol third grader! His teacher is a new teacher at the Charger's school and she seems really strict and really fun. Funny, I'll never forget my 3rd grade teacher, Mrs. Burquist!! boy was she strict!! Karson's happy to be back into the routine of things. He started his first year of tackle football and needless to say, has loved every minute of it!

Jaxon...cute little jaxon is just along for the ride. He loves to be on the go wherever everyone else is. He's so content to ride in the van and be bounced from one activity to another. We almost had him enrolled in a daycare program right by our house, but...well...this mom wasn't ready for that yet!! Knowing he's our baby, I wanna hang on just a little bit longer!! Once I get into the nursing program we won't have a choice but to send him to school all day, every day, so for now...we'll just make things work!!

As crazy as things are right now, I really love where I'm at. I'm proud of my kids and the choices they make. Could they make better ones, sure, but couldn't we all. It's so easy to let the day to day things overwhelm and exhaust, but in the end, what's really important!

Things get so busy sometimes, there are days where jason leaves for work, I leave for work before he gets home, work a graveyard and come home just in time for him to leave for work. He gets home just after i've left for school, a few more days/night's like this and before you know it, the week is over!!

Hang in there...
