Our lives

Hey all, just checking in. The last few weeks have been just great. Nothing unusual has happened. I am really just enjoying myself. I am in my 4th week of school now, and it has been really refreshing to be back. I think I am looking at it differently now. The first time I went to college, it was like an extension of high school. I never had a break, and I was completely burnt out. I also am a little bit anal about getting good grades, so I always killed myself in order to get them. The problem was, I was more worried about my grades than what I was about learning. This time around, I am really soaking it all in and enjoying the learning process a lot more. It amazes me how much there is to learn in the world. I could go to school full time for the rest of my life, and still have a lot to learn. It really makes me realize the greatness of our Heavenly Father. He knows everything there is to know, and when I think that I have the potential to be like him, it boggles my mind. I can't imagine ever knowing all the things he knows. I am especially enjoying my anatomy and physiology class. The human body it a fine-tuned machine!

Gus is also going to school now...sort of. We are participating in Joy School. It is like a preschool co-op, where you buy the curriculum and then the mom's rotate teaching. He loves it. Mostly, I think he is just so social that he has been dying to get out and interact with other kids on a regular basis. Ever since he got a taste of preschool when I taught it last year, he yearns for that activity with other kids his age. He is a bit of a class clown, although the jokes he makes don't make sense all of the time, the other kids laugh anyway. I just love kids that age.

Paul is really working hard at school. This is his last semester and he has 21 credits. Luckily he got a great scholarship (good job sugar), so he doesn't have to work this semester. What a great guy. I am so proud of him for sticking with it.

Max is not in school, but he is starting to say a lot of words, and he makes the most hillarious faces these days. My favorite thing to do is just watch him when he doesn't know it. He does the funniest things. He loves dogs, and anytime he sees one he says "boo" because that is the name of our dog. Love that kid.

Well adios, hope everyone is doing well!
