Trip #2

We made it to the zoo again!  It was a little different the second time around.  A little warmer, a lot more people, and different company.  This time I only took 2 of my 6 (Alyssa and Bryson).  We went with my Mom, Sasha, and Sawyer.  It was a nice afternoon.  The kids loved the animals.  I enjoyed catching up with my mom and getting a little exercise.   Thank you for inviting us Mom.  Love you!

To Be Or Not To Be...That Is The Question

Since the beginning of January, Aaron has been struggling with the decision of whether or not he should go back to school.  He loves being a chiropractor; however, he feels like he wants to do more with his profession.  Aaron went to Colorado over the weekend to try out USAT.  He absolutely loved it!  Guess what that means folks?  You've probably guessed it.  Aaron is going back to school!  I'm very anxious and nervous about this, because there are a lot of things we need to work out.  I just have to keep telling myself that everything is going to be okay.  One day at a time, right?  In the long run, I believe we'll be blessed. :)

Brody's IEP

Yesterday morning I went to Brody's IEP meeting.  I've said this before, but I feel it should be said again.  I'm so thankful for Brody's teacher, his aides,  and his therapists.  They are all angels!  They have his best interests at heart.  At the end of the meeting they asked me if I had any questions or concerns.  My biggest concern right now is how Brody will adjust at Spectrum Acedemy next year.  He has such a difficult time with change.  I really do feel like it will be a blessing though.  -Just got to keep going.

Cute Kiddos!

I think I've mentioned before that I get to watch my niece and nephew a few days each week.  They're the cutest kids.  I'm thankful for the opportunity to be with them.  I took these pictures of them and my kids yesterday.

Sluffing School

I took 4 of my 6 kids to the zoo yesterday.  I think I like the winter time better then the summer.  It was a little chilly and several exhibits were closed, but we had the whole zoo to ourselves.  There was only a handful of groups there.  I didn't constantly worry about where my kids were.   

I loved the elephants!

We saw a baby and mama elephant!

And the baby nursed.

The baby actually got down on his knees.  Pretty amazing.




Lions and tigers.

Abby's favorite animal was the orangutans.

This lil guy was so cute!
