Its been awhile since my last post, so I thought I'd do a little up-date.

Brian & Ginger-
-Brian got a new road bike and is planning on doing a BIG week long bike ride with another teacher this summer.
-I got a new sewing machine! I'm so excited to start some projects (note that I said START.... I haven't had a chance to do much with it :)
-I started working on my garden. I planted a few spring plants, like peas, spinach and onions.... I'm looking forward to planting more when it warms up.
-We both recently started working for the 2010 Census. It will only last for a few weeks, but we are excited to earn a little extra summer money. It's also nice that we get to work together.

-Callie's room got a makeover. Its not quite done yet.... I'll post some pictures of it after its done.
-Callie got braces! They look so cute on her.
-Callie is doing 4-H again this year and will be getting her pig this Friday.

-Baseball season just started, so Tyler is busy with practices. He will be playing his first game tomorrow.
-Tyler is going to do a pig for 4-H also. This is his first time being in 4-H, so he is really excited. He is quite the busy boy now, with the pressure of having to pick out the perfect pig name and all ;)

-Eric is obsessed with the movie, Sandlot. So he spends a lot of his time wearing cleats that are 5 sizes to big, a batting helmet, and a baseball glove. When he's mad, he tells me that I play ball like a girl! He also tells almost everybody he talks to that, "Chaw is yucky"......It makes you throw-up, like this see, oolllwww". Probably not the best thing he has ever learned from a movie!
-Last week I took Eric to a pre-school screening. It was fun to watch him do all of his little "tests". Today I found out that he didn't qualify because he did so well. Which is fine with me. I'm planning on starting a little preschool program for him this fall at our house. I might do it for one of the kids I babysit too. I'm excited to use some of the things I learned while in the teaching program.
-Eris had a birthday! He is three now! I'll post more about that later with some pictures.

-Jacob has six teeth! Four on top and two on the bottom.
- Brian and I took Jacob to a specialist in Tucson about three weeks ago to find out why he has had so many breathing problems. I really liked the Doctor we saw. Jacob was given some medication that has really helped. In a few weeks we will go back for some more tests. I'm so grateful for modern medicine!
-Jacob is still really chubby, but he has finally started to stretch out a bit. So to me, he looks a little less chubby.... (He's still huge though!)
-Jacob has finally started to sleep though the night! I was starting to think this day would never come.... Now that it's here I couldn't be happier!

Well if you are still reading.... I'm sure I've bored you to tears :) but that's what happens when you are a slacker like me and you only blog once every few months!
