a fresh start ?

Ok, it's been waaaaayy too long since I've done the blog thingy. It's time to start again. I was going to catch you all up on the last few months, but have decided to just start fresh with today. . . .

We are still trying to sell our house. The market is finally coming to life. There is hope. I hate that Nathan has to drive so far every stinking day, but I really don't want to leave South Ogden.

We fixed our lemon of a car. Fingers crossed (and a couple thousand dollars), it should work good now. When we got it back yesterday, Marlee said how much she likes the car. I told her it was a good thing, since it will probably be her car when she's 16. (Heaven help me it's only 6 years away. it's really not that far!!)

The kids are doing great at school. The boys have done great this year in separate classes. (I'd like to think I have done great with them in separate classes too. LOL) Marlee is doing great too! She's smart, responsible, kind, and helpful. What more could I ask for?! Tama (Elijah) is learning his letters. He asks me everyday how to spell "awesome". I'm not sure why that's such an important word for him, but it is a daily question.

Nathan's loving his new job. Only 2 weeks till the Luau that he's in charge of, it's quite the event!. We're all excited to go and see it though. It should be fantastic. He is really enjoying the advising part of his job. It's been a big change, but one that he really loves!

Yes, I am pregnant. Starting to really show now. Hopefully not just looking "heavier". I am due mid September, but we will be having this little baby a few weeks earlier than that. We'll find out the end of April what "flavor" we are having. I have been looking for my maternity clothes for 2 weeks. Last night I found one small grocery bag that consisted of 1 pair of pants that need mending, a sweater that might fit Marlee, and 2 shirts that are 10 years old. NICE. (sarcasm) Then I remembered that after Elijah, I sold my stuff, thinking that IF I was to get pregnant again I would just get new clothes. Smart idea? Not so sure. ;)

There ya go, a "quick" update. Keep checking back. I promise to write more . . .
