Hi, I'm so sorry we haven't been posting. I'll do better! On April 1st me and the kids went to California for spring break, to visit my sister. She just moved there so we were very exited to see her new house. The kids loved playing with my neice stella whos one in a half. We went to Disneyland two times in the two weeks we were there. It was so much fun to see the kids playing and having fun with there cousin.

Welcome to our family blog!

Welcome! I am new to this whole blogging thing but after countless threats from my daughter I decided to give in and start my own. This way my family and friends who live elsewhere can stop bugging me to fill them in on my awesomely perfect life!!

Connor, our oldest, is now 11 and his life consists of football and girls. He is absolutely girl crazy. I swear I did not expect this to happen so soon and I had no time to prepare. The other day we were shopping for classroom valentine cards and he threw a box of chocolates in the cart. I picked it up and looked at the box which read "Fallin 4 U"!! I almost peed my pants I laughed so hard. I can totally remember 5th grade and all the drama the whole boyfriend girlfriend thing was. I asked him if he asked her out and he looked at me like I was an idiot. I guess they dont do that anymore.

Lexi, now 9, is our oldest daughter and is full of spunk. She is totally obssessed with cheerleading and has forced me to become my worst nightmare, a cheer mom!! I really never pictured my life to be this but honestly it is not as bad as I would have thought. The competiotions are another story, the movies cannot come close to doing it justice. I think I have seen many of the people there in the pictures on! Next month I will be taking Lex to nationals in Disney World the pictures I post from there will be doozey's and guaranteed to make your week. Elle, 5, is our youngest. Her life consists of playing, playing, and more playing. Oh and I can't forget Taylor Swift. She can sing every word of every song. Her favorite thing to do is hold "concerts" in her room by herself. If she ever catches me "spying" she gets furious, which is just as funny as her actual dancing and singing. She is going to preschool at Challenger, a private school where I teach, and is trying to get her blending badge. I have offered to buy her the zhu zhu babies to go with her other zhu zhu pets when she gets the badge but she has decided no prize is worth the pain and agony of having to sit for 5 minutes and blend words like ob, ack, ed and so on.
Mike is now back at work with Storesonline but is no longer travelling - yee ha! I cannot believe that I survived the last five years. I swear I was a single mom of three children with some strange man that came to stay with us every now and then. Mike loves being home and to be honest I love him being here as well. Everyone told me that it would be very hard to get used to having him around all the time but it was not at all. There was no real adjustment period so I guess we were lucky.
I am now working at Challenger and loving it. I teach preschool children and have so much fun with them all. Outside of that I spend most of time in the car. Connor has football practice M,T,W,TH,F,S Lex has cheer M,W, and some saturdays and Elle has gymnastics on Th. After all that is done I get to spend time helping my kids with thier homework. It is really fun to try and pretend that you know what you are doing when they ask for help. I helped Connor with his math homework the other day and told him that I could not understand why he could not do it himself cause it was so easy. He came back 2 days later and every problem I helped him with he got wrong, OUCH! I guess it was not as easy as I thought. Dont worry though, for those of you who know me well I still find time to watch all of my great, inspiring, educational tv shows. Just a quick update: I love andrew on american idol (straight up guy), I think the Bachelor should not try and do the exact same thing they did with Ed and Jillian, I still have my Christmas lights up and died laughing at this weeks Cougar Town episode and blah, blah, blah. It would take hours to list them all.
In a nutshell that is our life. I know pretty amazing huh?
