Sorry no pictures to add at this point. I have to wait until I get enough for a disk. Anyway, still wanted to update everyone on our status. Noah started school on Wednesday. He is now in the 3rd grade. He has a great teacher and I think he is going to love it. For the next week and a half he gets out at 1:30pm everyday. That is nice. On Aug 31st he then goes to normal hours which is from 8:25-3:00pm Mon-Thurs and then 8:25-1:30 every Friday. His school has an awesome playground so he is loving that. He is still hanging out with his friend Mason every day. I don't see that changing in the near future. Mason is a good kid and we are glad him and Noah are friends.

Chris started his job today. He is working at the BYU Library. I think that he will like it. It is definitely a change from Ukrops but a job is a job and they give you a raise every semester. Can't complain about that. He is looking forward to starting school back. He seems a little lost without school and a job. He starts school on Aug 31st so then he will feel like he is doing something. He has been a big help around the house getting everything situated and we have been able to spend a lot of time with each other so that has been very nice. That is all about to come to a stop in a week or so.

I am loving staying at home. This is great. I get to see Noah off to school and right when he gets out. Me and Mason's mom are carpooling so one week she takes them and I pick them up and then the next week we switch up. This is going to be nice. I enjoy having more time with Noah and not having to put him daycare. I am going to be watching a few kids here so that I can bring in some money. I start on Monday with one and the other two I start on Aug 31st.

We are still loving it here and look forward to family that can visit. Our place is small but it is open to those that want to stop by.

The Water Park

On Tuesday we went to one of the many water parks in Utah. It is about 10 minutes from our home. We took Noah's friend Mason with us so that he would have someone to play with. Chris and I kept telling Noah to go down the water slide. Noah didn't want to. He was scared. Finally after almost bribing him to go down one he went. Then he didn't want to leave. He had so much fun and now won't stop asking when we are going again. He is so funny. I am sure that we will go one more time before he starts school. In Utah they start on August 19th. That is like a week and a half away. I hope he is ready.

Hogle Zoo

For my birthday, Chris and Noah took me to the zoo in Salt Lake City. We had so much fun. It was very hot, about 102 degrees. We got to see all kinds of animals and learn more about them and how they live. My favorite was the elephant. It was all by itself and had a huge water area to bathe or whatever. It was so pretty. Noah really wanted to see the bears but they weren't out so we didn't get to see them. Better luck next time. I am sure we will go again. It was a lot of fun. Even tough it was my first birthday away from family, it was a lot of fun.

Chris, Noah, and I have been in Provo for about a week now. We have made friends with a great family who lives a couple of apartments down. We are getting closer to finishing packing. We have gone to a Water Park here, we have gone to the Hogle Zoo, and Noah and Chris went on a hike up the mountain with Noah's new friend and his dad. Noah loves it here and is having a blast. Chris has been trying to get familiar with the area by walking around campus so that he doesn't get lost the first day of classes. I have been figuring out the area and I am much better that Chris with directions but not by much. I can get us to Wal-mart, Ikea, University Mall, and the Library. Oh and also weight watchers. I love Utah. It is so beautiful and the people are super friendly. Chris loves it here too.
