Been a busy couple of weeks...
Brett has finished driver's ed and now just has to wait 3.5 more months to get his official license. We also have about 46 more hours of practice driving. It has gotten a little less nerve wracking, just a little. He started track this week. This is the first year trying track and so far he's enjoying the practices. He would like to do sprints so is training with that group, which includes hurdles.
Erin enjoys spending time in the kitchen and has helped me make several types of cake pops lately as well as some peanut butter brownies. We are trying different recipes trying to find the perfect one to make for a church dinner in a couple of weeks.
Kehli is gearing up for a dance recital this spring. She is quite flexible and enjoys her Jazz Funk class. She is registered to start Girls on the Run on Monday and is looking forward to Brett being her running buddy for the 5K at the end of the program.
Kendall is also signed up for GOTR and I will be her running buddy for the race. We have a ways to go to get her ready for that!
Evan misses his preschool in Utah and still asks me to take him back so he can learn more Spanish. He will get tested next week to be admitted to the Dual Language program for Kindergarten this fall.
Adam is spoiled rotten...need I say more? He's starting to talk more and the other kids love to show him off after they teach him something new.
Mark is busy at work. I am busy playing taxi driver. We are just about ready to start building another house. We are done with the bids and could go to the bank as soon as we get the okay from the city. Mark spoke to the city planner today to see where they were on the water boosting project. Permit should be issued next week to put in the pump station. It looks like we need to wait another 3-4 weeks before approaching the building department about starting to build and possibly getting our permit amended so we don't have to install fire sprinklers. It's hard to be patient, but hopefully it won't be too much longer and we can be in by the end of the year. Fingers crossed!!
Update on Luke: he is doing amazingly well considering the accident he had. He is beginning to move and say words. He remembers things, but nothing of the accident. He is off the ventilator, but his lungs need to continue healing and he will be in the ICU for at least another 2 weeks. I am on a committee that is organizing a fundraiser for Luke. It is wonderful to have something to do that will help. Up to this point we haven't been able to do much of anything, physically anyways. It will be held on March 24 and will be a spaghetti dinner, bake sale and silent auction. I am in charge of the silent auction so if there is anything that you want to donate for that let me know!
