By the way...

If anyone has any quick tips or hints about using blogger please help me! I am no good at figuring this one out. Especially how do you find people you know who blog? Is there a search or do you need to find out if they blog from them? Thanks! Also how do I upload pics that I already have in Picasa?

Its about time...

It is so time for a post! I am terrible at this! I truly love reading other people's blog's, but find my life so uninteresting that it is hard for me to do it. I am so often inspired by my sister-in-law and yet discouraged because she is an excellent and truly interesting writer. But then again no one is here for me - they want to see the kids! Which why not - I am so prideful about how beautiful my kids are!

At the moment we are coming to once again another change in our lives. Possible new job, another move - that will be the 6th move in 5 years, but all of these things lead to good news! Brian may be able to finish his bachelors in one year! It seems so impossible to be true! We are thinking of moving back to BYU housing this time into the older section as we were so rudely kicked out of our wonderful Wyview to allow single students to live there. (I will always be bitter!) Its about half the size of our current living conditions but the price reduction will allow Brian to work less and school more! Which is necessary to get us out of Utah ASAP! We are both actually very excited about the idea of moving back to student housing. We loved our experience in Wyview and the closeness we felt with the friends we made there - our new area has not been as warm (for lack of a better term).

We never felt accepted into our most recent married student ward.  It was so large that we didn't know anyone - it was very intimidating. We felt unwanted because we had two kids like it was time for us to move on.

So yes we are moving again, happy and sad about it, but so excited to just get done!!! Then Brian will potentially be onto Grad school. Ugh! We will not be done with school until our children start! I am sure of it! But I want Brian to truly be happy in his career and be able to accomplish all of his wild dreams on whatever scale he may wish so we push on...

Someday it will be my turn to go to school...

For now I am in the process of training for a 5K. I am so out of shape its not even funny - its almost painful in fact! But I've been loving it and so have the girls. We bought a double stroller finally and we walk 3 -5 miles every other day! I look forward to it all day long! The girls nap or Naomi will dialogue for me - making sure I see the tree or the water or the dog walking by. We all come home so much happier, as I practically limp up the stairs to our apartment. Its the one time I don't mind Naomi walking as slow as a snail!

More Gnomes and Penguin pics will be coming shortly - I have filled up my entire picasa site so can't load anymore at the moment!
