Link to Sunday fill in

I get my "Sunday fill in" from
I don't want to take credit for other peoples work. :)

Sunday fill in

1. Birthdays are fun when little, dreaded when older.

2. Spring is my favorite season because it is warm, not hot. And because everything is fresh and new.

3. I feel my best when I have accomplished something. Even if it's just a simple task like cleaning my house.

4. There are too many to have a my favorite food!

5. First impressions are overrated. (What if you are nervous and totally don't act like yourself?)

6. The best piece of advice I ever received was save your money. (Too bad I don't know how to use it.)

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to Eating Navajo tacos, tomorrow my plans include Cleaning the house and Sunday, I want to be lazy!

Need to think things through...

So, I have come to realize that I need to think things through before I act. I had an embarrassing moment this week.

I decided the girls needed a swimming pool to cool off in. I refused to buy another blow up one that they would pop in a day. So, I set out in search of one of the hard plastic ones. I finally, after going to every store in Payson, found one at Rite Aid. I was so excited that I just hurried in and bought it. Once outside with our new pool, I realized there was no way it was going to fit into the car. So now here I sit, on Main street, with an empty swimming pool that my kids are insisting on sitting in! Oh the looks people were giving me. I quickly called Cameron to come rescue me. And of course, he is out riding his 4 wheeler. But none the less says he can come get it. So, we sat on main street, the girls jumping in and out of the pool like it already had water in it, and waited for Cameron. It took him about 1/2 hour to get to us. I had never been so happy to see him, until I realized he had a friend with him. I am sure they were both laughing pretty hard at the fact I had tried to get this big pool into my car. None the less, Cameron got the pool home for us. And I can't seem to keep the girls out of it. I will have to get some pictures and post them.

Living without internet...

I would like to know how people survive without the internet...oh wait I do know since we haven't had it since October! But that is no more, we now have internet and I can finally stay in touch with everyone again.

An update on the Family-

CJ is still working for Wencor, although he was promoted from CMM machine operator 1 to CMM Machine operator 2. Which means he now reverse engineers the parts instead of doing quality checks. He seems to be enjoying it so far.

Kirstee has graduated from Pre-School. She claims she hated it because it was boring. In the last 4 months, she has taught herself how to read and how to ride a bike without training wheels. She is very excited to go to Kindergarten! I just hope she gets Aunt Clea so that she will be challenged. She is having fun with what little warm weather we are having. She loves to be outside and is always begging to play in the sprinklers. We have great hope that the weather gets warm soon!

Makadee thinks she is as big as her sister. If you ask her how old she is, she will tell you she is 5. If you try to correct her she just gets mad. Makadee is truly the light of our lives. She is always doing something to make us laugh. Nothing stops her! She is always on the cupboards or into something you wouldn't think she could reach. She definitely keeps us on our toes. She is potty trained!!! About 3 months ago she decided she was big like her sister and wanted to use the potty. It took her a couple weeks to really get it down, but I am loving not having to change diapers!!

As for me, I worked as a Star Tutor and Kindergarten Tech this last school year. And am currently teaching Kindergarten for our summer school. This has been a little stressful, but with the help of the Kindergarten teachers, I was able to make some fun plans for my class. I still love to scrapbook, read sappy romances and spend time with my family.

That pretty much sums up our lives for now. Hope all is well with you and your families!!
