Brothers





















They don't really like to play together that often, but at least they are getting to be around each other a bunch and I think that one day they will be really good buddies!!!

Life lately

Well, life has been a little hectic to say the least. We have started a new program within the last couple months. Our kids were eligible for a state funded program where we can have our kids evaluated and based on the results, we can have free in home therapy for up to 15 hours per week per kid. So, this figures to be about 3 hours a day per kid. And so, we have been adjusting to that new schedule. We are so very grateful for the therapists and for their willingness to be flexible with their schedules to coordinate around what is already a busy schedule for both my kids. They are already showing improvement and Owen is babbling ALL the time. No real words with meaning yet (at least not consistently) but we are really getting there. Both my kids are happy and smiling most of the time and that is all that matters to me.

We are also in the process of selling our house (I haven't updated the blog enough). We are under contract as of last week and we are thrilled about it. We have loved our house, we just need a garage.  :) But, before we were under contract, it was the normal crazy with cleaning for showings and looking at houses and just trying to juggle a lot. But, we feel really blessed to not have the stress of having two mortgages while we are in the process of buying another house.

Anyway, aside from that madness, we are just taking things day by day and enjoying the good things and the many many blessings that we are given every day. Zac is getting ready to submit his masters project and I will be so excited for him to be done with school and he is also taking on a side job, and so he keeps extremely busy and still finds time to laugh, and play with the kids. He is too good to us. We are really thankful for the good people around us too. I feel like practically every day someone is reminding me how hard it will be to leave our ward. There are so many kind and loving people around us.

Well, that is our life in a nutshell right now. And here are some fun pictures, just because I like pictures so much.
