Ok, thinks that have happened the last couple months

-San Diego, always a blast, I may post on that later.

-Started school (work) again and love my staff. Since working at the school district I have come to discover what I am really good at. It's the people skills that I am having to work on.

-Pregnant, having a boy in January. I am excited for this, but trying not to think too much about it.

-John is going to school full time at CAC. He is going to go into computers. We have talked about it for years so it is great to finally have him do it. It is amazing what a job you hate will motivate you to do.

-We are homeschooling Addison for preschool. We couldn't find anything affordable that fit our scheduals so we are taking it into our hands. She loves to do her homework, and I think that its the only time of day when she is quiet. She also loves to draw. Very good at it too.

-I'm still working at Brownies, just taking a break. I am too tired. The plan is for me to come back after the baby is born and help run things. I just hope buisness is better by then.

-Addison is excited to be a big sister and have someone to play with. She keeps talking about when her baby brother comes. She says things like, I wish he could come out now. Also, she knows we are going to Disneyland after he comes, but I don't think she knows what it is.

Life is simple and to an outsider probably boring around here, but we love it.

This summer I have been taking care off my mom's flowers.  She has been gone and I don't have a cool setup like she does.  Well, in the front I planted some morning glory because I love the flower they give.
  If you know anything about cotton you know that this is one of your worst enemys.  Our family has a cotton farm that my dad grew up working on.  Todd and I both worked on it as well.  My job was to chop the morning glory before it got big enough to start vining its self around the cotton plant.  If it did, it was a pain to get it off without destroying the cotton.  The problem of it lies in this.  The vines grow and spread over everything.  They then clog the picker and slow org even hault the harvesting of the cotton.  To say the least, farmers consider it a weed.
My dad came home earlier this summer for the weekend and saw the morning glory growing happily in his flower pots.  I think it took every fiber of his being to not pull it.  this last saturday I went over and pulled all dead flowers from the pots because I lives in arizona and everything dies in the summer here.  in the front where I had planted the morning glory, it was the only thing left alive.  I just had to giggle a little over it all.

I love you dad.

John took addison bowling a couple off weeks ago.  Today she miraculously found the bowling set that has been in her room for the last six months and decided she wanted to bowl in the living room.  Oh, and she was wearing her swimming suit most off the day.  John has a very elegant and unique through.  This is addison trying to bowl, just like him.
