Our new car

Well, it's official, I've become a part of the Mormon Mom Club. I now drive a mini van. Thanks Tyler for finding it for me, now we can drive three kids around in one car. I've been carless this whole week. Tyler has had to drive to Salt Lake everyday for clinicals and I haven't had a car, but now....I'm going to be cruisin!

Our new home!

Here is the one picture I've taken at our house, it's been too crazy to think about taking pictures until about now. But, we bought Damon a bike and it's awesome because I don't have to worry about him riding it in the road because we live in this little culdesac, but after getting comfortable on his bike he decided to venture off when I wasn't looking. And just outside our little circle is down hill which he headed down. I started chasing after him (which probably looked hilarious with my big belly) and he was smart enough to turn into someone's driveway, but ended that with a big crash. So, he's been a little hesitant since then to get on his bike. Maybe when his wounds heal, he'll forget about the crash. It's so nice having the freedom to go outside and not worry about the kids too much. I swear it's just what we needed. It's been a cure for the trouble Damon got into in Oakland, shut up in an apartment building most the day. He's a different kid and loves having the freedom to go outside and play.

Poor Damon didn't get much of a b-day this year, because it landed on the day we flew out, so at our little good bye party I brought some cake and we sang happy b-day to him, and his nice friends even brought him some presents. He's going to miss his friends so much...misses his friends so much.

I put my brother J.C. to some good use while he was staying with us, gave him all the dirty work. Try not to notice how dirty the oven is....didn't clean it once when we lived there! EEEEWWW, how disgusting is that? Thanks JC!

Quick Update

Life has been so hectic trying to move. We are moving to Salt Lake today and have had the craziest time. Last night we had a bunch of help to load up our u-haul only to find out that it wasn't big enough, so we loaded the extra stuff into the garage and finally figured out that we would rent a trailer to pull behind it. So all day today, Tyler was at different U-hauls trying to find a trailer. Finally we found one in Alameda and finally got the ball rolling about 1:00 this afternoon. Talk about stress! So, it's about 3:00 pm and Tyler still hasn't gotten on the road. Not the plan at all!!! Plan was to be out by 8 or 9 this morning! Oh well, at least we're finally on our way. And at least I get to fly in tomorrow with the kids after everything has been unpacked:) When I have time, I'll post some pics of our new house.
