The Catch Up...again!

My board-ness today has sent me to blogging. No school and no car with the lack of ambition to clean lead me to get a little caught up on blogging. So what is up in the last oh 8 months? Lots!

First off, I don’t work anymore. This has been great for school and the kids. I have had time to work more on my studies and have really been trying to get things done for the kids. Although I am pretty sure we miss my pay check. I think that has been a hard adjustment for us.

We recently just bought a house and we love it! We put tons of work into before we moved in. We are still working on a few things, but it is sooo close. We live in the mountains and it is so beautiful. I will even take the feet of snow we have! We have great neighbors and we could not have made a better choice.

Umm, I changed my major. Yes believe it or not I have made a full turn for something completely different. I decided I am done with health care and I am going to do something different with my life. I should have my business degree by the end of next summer or fall at the latest. Then I am off to the U of U, GO UTES! I am thinking engineering with an emphasis on alternative engineering. My only other thought is to stay with business and have an emphasis on project management. I think I am going for nerd and staying with engineering! School has been great and I love it. I wish I had not done it he hard way, (having kids first) but it has been so worth it.

Eric works his little butt off to support our family and helps with the kids while I am at school. I am a lucky wife and my kids have a great dad!

York is growing up fast. Although sometimes he makes me want to pull my hair out, he has turned into a pretty good young man. I think we are pretty lucky. He is a great brother to his little ones. He has found some really good friends around our new house and the new school, although new, he seems to have really adjusted fast. Of course we are now in the stage of girl friends but I think he has a good head on his shoulders. I don’t worry too much and I always get to meet the girls.

Mason has the best teacher this year. We love her. She has really helped him get his reading going more and, of course, loves him. She always tells me she wants to take him home. He is such a sweet boy! He has made a few new friends also.

Cache is Cache! He is always an adventure. He is such a funny kid. We were very fortunate this year to get a new teacher. She has been so fabulous and has really helped Cache. She has given all of us hope that one day he will be able to verbally communicate. She says he is the best kid in her class. He has now started therapy outside of school and we are pushing hard to get him to his aged appropriate levels. He has physical, occupational, and speech therapy on a regular basis. His heart has seemed to be fine and has had no shocks from his new and improved defibulator. He has had no signs of another seizer and we do not think that he will.

Dylann, my little princess is such a fun girl. I love having a girl. She is growing up fast too. She is learning lots and almost has her numbers down and we are working on her alphabet. She loves princesses and fairies and goes crazy the second she sees one anywhere. We did have a scare with her this summer while in Disneyland, California. That is probably a whole different post. I really should post about it and maybe I will next. But to make it as simple as we can, we found out the hard way that her medication can cause low blood sugar. She was near death by the time we got to the hospital and they worked their magic and saved her life by giving her dextrose (sugar) through her bone marrow. I think out of the all days I have had, this by far was the scariest. God was defiantly watching over us that day. I feel pretty blessed to still have her. She has only had 1 episode since and we caught it in time and gave her that yummy dextrose gel. Other then that she is great!

Wow, that is a lot to write! I wish I had more time to blog. I am really going to make it a goal this year to at least post once a month. It is such a great way to journal and share. Life is good, hard, but totally worth it!
