Hello again..... I am still trying!

Hello, to those of you who keep checking up with me and my blog, hoping to get an update on my family. Life here is always crazy and fun. We have been celebrating birthdays, blessings and baptisms. Enjoying our lazy summer and then getting back into the daily grind of school again. Adjusting to the new baby and finally getting him on a schedule. Jax is in the fourth grade and is doing really well, he is taking early morning Spanish and loves school, math, drawing and reading. He is about to get his Bear in scouts and move on to Weeblos. Kas is in second grade and she is also taking Spanish, she loves going to school, reading, taking care of the baby and playing with her friends. She started her activity days and enjoys going to those as well. Zak is in preschool for one more year and loves going three days a week. Tuesday and Thursday are a little rough around the house, because he is a little bored out of his mind!!! He is a fantastic older brother and is very patient and loving with the baby. He is a joy to his teachers at school and such a delight to raise. We all know that soon enough they will all be in school all day and I won't know what to do with myself.

Jeremy and I started a fitness bootcamp, and it is fun to workout with him again. I joke in class that after some of the exercises we wont be able to care for our kids and they might wonder why we have signed up for such torture! But it is amazing how you find muscles you never knew you had before! Jeremy is busy with work and is STILL in love with the animals and the business. I am so happy in my life and grateful for the blessings that I have been given.

We just celebrated Zak's birthday and spent the afternoon at Liberty Land with his friends. If you thinking taking one five year old to miniature golf is a challenge, your in for a treat when you try to take five five year olds to miniature golf. After unintentionally soaking Zak's poor friend Drake in the water fountain and harnessing children to climb the rock wall, to the main event lazer tag we had a wonderful time full of laughter and memories.

Kas had an exciting birthday. After going to get her ears pierced for her birthday, she wanted a TOTALLY girlie party and was able to invite a handful of friends to a day spa for pedicures, a fashion show and a cupcake tea party. My camera is broken at the moment and I took pictures on my sisters camera, I don't have them just yet. Hopefully I will be able to post those soon.

Jax just had his check up with the Dr. and is getting ready for his birthday in a few months, we will have a party for him as well. The news from the Dr was GREAT, no surgery of now, we will have another appointment in January and we will see what they think then.

The baby is an absolute delight. He wakes up every morning with a smile on his face and is completely entertained with all the commotion that fills our home with noise and life and love. He laughs at the kids silly rap songs that they make up for him and LOVES his mom. I think I have another mama's boy, and I won't complain about that one!! It was a challenge having the space between him and Zak, but we are finally falling into a normal routine and he is an angel, who sleeps about 10 hours a night, so I can't get too upset.

For a lot of you, you saw the picture of Jax in the BYU magazine. Well after we did that little shoot, all of my kids wanted to look into modeling. Kas has wanted to do modeling and acting for a while, and I have been encouraged to put all of them in by several of my friends. So a few weeks ago I met with a couple agents and recently had my friend take some pictures for me so they could test the waters and see how things go. I will post a few. They are all excited about doing this and we will see how it goes. I want to support them in the activities they would like to try. So, stay tuned....

I hope all of you that might be checking in have a wonderful Holiday season, cause lets be honest, I probably wont be posting again until after the first of year! I know, I know, I suck at blogging, but don't give up hope on me yet! We just had our family pictures done and the other pics. Here a few....
