WOW.....I just realized how long it has been since I have blogged. Since my family left in January I have done a few things. I signed up for school. I have always wanted to be a teacher and just never had the time or guts to go back to school. It has been 10 years since I have graduated from high school and so going back to school is kind of scary for me. I am going for a degree in Elementary Education. I started February 8th and take 2 classes every nine weeks. I will be done with my degree in 4 years, if I go straight through. I am doing them online right now with the University of Phoenix. So far I am really loving it. Right now I am taking English 101-Effective Essay Writing and GEN 105-skills for learning in the info age. It's not to bad....YET. I am glad that Chris can help me. He is so smart and is so excited about me going back to school. I have a great support team. I am still doing daycare during the day and am loving it. I try to go to the Temple every Friday (because I have no kids on Friday). This has been great. I love it. This weekend Chris and I actually get to go to a sealing in the Salt Lake Temple. I can't wait. I am really excited. I haven't been to a sealing other than my own and this year I get to go to two. My brother, Josh, is getting married in May and so we get to go to that one as well. Chris is still maintaining his 4.0 average in school and loving the ROTC. He really has fun with it and likes the guys he works with. Noah is making awesome grades and is doing well with school. He is taking piano lessons from a lady that lives under us and is doing a great job. I just signed him up for Spring Soccer and Baseball so we will be busy this Spring. We also got passes to the Seven Peaks Water park here in Provo for the summer. You know me...gotta find water and sunlight. I LOVE it. Too bad there are no beaches. Oh well. We are enjoying our time here in Utah a lot and keep finding new adventures. It is hard to believe that we have been here almost a year. Time sure does fly when you are loving life. We are so glad that my brother and soon to be New sister in law will be living out here. It will be nice to have some family out here too.
