If you can hear me screaming!

I would not be a bit surprised. Actually the noise may have died to a low groan right now. I went to my ED class last Wednesday and found out that the class was going to be ending a week earlier then I thought. To top it off another assignment was added to the workload. I know had 5 assignments of different lengths to get done in about 6 days. I freaked out !!!! It is Monday night right now and I still have 2 of the assignments to polish up a little before turning them in by midnight tomorrow. Needless to say it was a really hard week for me and at this point I am not a nice mama! Everything is getting on my nerves! Thanks goodness once this class is over I will be done for the summer.

Updates for Us!

Well the weather has been so nice we haven't been spending a lot of time in the house. The kids play outside and we go for walks almost every night. We did get a visit from the State Troopers this week which was interesting! Eli found one of our old cell phones in a drawer and had asked if he could play with it. The kids had a great time taking pictures all weekend with the camera feature. Even Peachie got in on the action and was constantly asking Aaron and I to pose. She even took a picture of the cat using his litter box!
Monday night the kids were messing around with the phone again while Aaron and I were working on dinner. Aaron's current cell phone started ringing and it was the Police Dispatch! Apparently the kids had dialed 911! So we of course were surprised because we didn't think you could do that. This phone has no service! I guess because we didn't change the cell number when we got the new number or something. So we took the phone away-then later a state trooper showed up to make check everything out. EMBARRASSING! He was cool thought I suppose they have to make sure that it really was an accidental call or something.
I don't have any pictures right now because I need to work on a better way for filing them on the -puter and Aaron is as work today.
TA! TA! for now.

Here's Whats Happening In Our Neck Of The Woods

I know it has been a while since I put some new pictures up on the blog so I decided to do one big post and get everything caught up. So much is going on right now that it is hard to know where to start. This time of year is really hard for me. Everything (as in the kids school, my school, AWANA and Children's church) is winding down and I justit all to be over so we can slow down a little bit. Yet I still need to put it the same amount of time and effort to fulfill my responsibilities. I can't wait for "summer" to come.

Caleb has a killer sense of fashion. He picks out his own clothes every morning for school and loves to dress up Peach in her play clothes. Caleb and Peach are actually pretty good budies.
We have caught pictures of all of the kids in crazy sleeping positions at one time or another. Here is Peaches contribution to the family timeline.

Peach and I went to the Wildlife Refuge for their FUN day. We had a lot of fun and even got cozy with a big Kodiak Bear!

We started out Saturday with a trip to the ER. Aaron and Caleb were wrestiling or something and Caleb hurt his arm. We thought for sure he had broke his arm by the amount of pain he was in.

It turned out he had something called "nursemaids elbow." They did take an x-ray an were able to pop in back in place. He was fine by the time he got home. Aaron had treated him to a new Webkinz for being so brave.
We did alot of other fun stuff this weekend and had a great dinner with the Kodiak Koehlers. Beth has all the pictures on her camera so hopefully she will update her blog soon!

Perks of taking online classes!

It is Tuesday and that means its time for my ethics class. I need this class as one of my last General Education Requirements for my degree. I am always nervous when Aaron is not home on class night and try to have a new movie for the kids to watch. I went to the library today and got the kids the Pixar video with the shorts on it. I think they must have liked it because they didn't come interupt me until it was over. I am grateful that they have reached an age where I can lock myself in the bedroom and keep one ear open for them and one ear in class. I get the coke and chips to munch on during class. I usually play a little Majong to get me through the lecture as well!
