Life takes its turns

Here are the latest pics for my class. Well, some are just of Tys and I on a picnic we took Josh on. Tyson gave Josh a stick and rocks to teach him to be a man. So Josh learned to skip rocks, well, kind of. It was soooo cute! So life for our little family has been great. Last night though we found out that my Grandma has a tumor in her stomach and she is getting surgery to remove it. I guess it is really bad, so if you get a moment, please pray for her and my mom. They need comfort. Thanks.

P.S.- The little girl is one of the kids I babysit and in one of the fabulous pictures of Josh, yes he is wearing my socks on his hands and his pants on his head. This is what happens when he plays dress up with Daddy. ;)

A New Life

So of all my phases in life, this is the busiest, and the most rewarding. Can I just tell you how much I love it? Every day I wake up to either Josh or Tyson, (both favorites), or both. Josh has been really cranky lately, he just got his fifth tooth and now we are pretty sure he has an earache and he didn't sleep much last night. I have to admit, that is probably the hardest part about being a parent. Even with the wishing I had more sleep or more alone time or one trip to the bathroom by myself, the one thing that kills me is when there is nothing I can do to help. But the cool part about being a mom is no matter how useless I am, just my presense makes him feel better. So I am taking a photography class and a writing class. Both are going really well. I love being back in the learning circle. I am working in the afternoons, I pick up a 3 year old from school and so we have two carseats in the back of our 2 door car now. :) I take her and Josh back to her house and watch her and her 2 older siblings. It is going well, but I sure am worn out by 5. So Tyson and I try to invite people over for dinner to be more social, so I have dinner to cook and prepare when I get home, then when Josh goes to bed, we always relax and watch movies or play Mancala or Battleship (my personal fav). Well, anyways, gotta go, the munchkin is awake, like I said, 5 more minutes. But hey, who wants em when you got such a cute snotty little kid? :)
these are some shots that I took for my class. Enjoy.

Happy Birthday Hannah (Goofus)!


Wow, you are 13, I can't believe it. You have grown up so much in the 2 years that I have known you. You are so fun and sweet. Thank you for all the omelettes you have made me and for making me feel so welcome in your family when I was such a new addition to it. Thanks for helping take care of Joshua while we were out there, that was so nice of you. We love you so much and are so thankful for the wonderful person you are!

Sorry this is a day late...
