It's that time again.......

Makayla and Landon are official volunteers at the Utah Humane Society. They enjoy it so much..... when we go we are usually there for at least a couple of hours. Of course we have to have the "no, we can't take all 50 dogs and 30 cats, 7 rats, 9 gerbils, and 5 rabbits home with us" talk each time we go to leave!

2 weeks down.....

The last two weeks have been really great! Getting back into the groove of going to school and having an actual dinner instead of smores or hotdogs! Lan and MJ have finished their first two weeks and so far absolutely love it. Their teachers are wonderful. MJ has been recommended for the excell math where she will go 3 times a week to a advanced level math class..... not sure where she got her math smarts! Lan is enjoying his 1st grade class and loves homework. His testing shows him to be reading on a 2nd grade level and 3rd grade spelling. Very proud! LC has started her senior year at Bingham High School. She is loving her classes and has said on several occasions she loves her Seminary class..... WWHHHHHAAAAATTT? :) I survived my first week at work. I absolutely love it! It's tons of fun and the kids are great, of course we have our "attitudes" but they all seem to be adapting to the rules of the playground! I can't believe I am actually getting paid for laminating, copying, cutting out, and running the playground..... WOW! Friday night lights have officially begun in the Beehive state.... not as glamorous as football in Texas but it's fun to watch. Lan and I went to the game while MJ went camping in Manti and LC with friends (of course) at the game then to a sleepover. Alan working as usual but is excited about the 3 day weekend. We may head to Idaho to see his Uncle Billy and Aunt Sheryl.... we may head to Park City to hang out with our friends!

What a day.....

Today was a big day for a couple of us in the fam!!! Today Lauren started her senior year at Bingham High School. She was up bright and early this morning anxious to get out the door in hopes to score a really great parking place! She is very excited about her class schedule which includes Anatomy/Physiology and Fashion Merchandising! She has begun to request college info which is quite stressful.... for me that is!!

And I, the tdchavis, started my new job today at the new elementary school. It was tons of fun, a little unorganized right now but it is only the first day and the school is not complete yet. I'll keep you posted!!!

A Ray of Sunshine.......

We have a new addition to our family..... well, until the 25th! Derick is here visiting with us while his mommy and daddy are taking a little vacation! We have had so much fun with him. He has made lots of new friends and already the kiddos come over and ask, "Can Derick come and play"?!! The kids were excited to get online and learn a few "signs" so they are able to speak to Derick. He loves the mirror and making everyone laugh. He loves to dance and sing to the HSM Wii.... hmmm I wonder where he has heard those songs before? :) It's so much fun to watch Landon and Derick interact...... Landon can't wait to go in his room in the morning and start their day of play! Derick absolutely loves Roxy dog and Roxy adores Derick.... He loves to sit with her and lay on her belly! She is just excited to have so much attention! I love the random hugs I get just for smiling at Derick. He is an amazing little boy with a really big heart. Our family is so blessed to have Derick in our home for a bit..... he has made such an impression on the kids not to mention Alan and I! Derick ROCKS!!!
