Spending time outside

These are some things I have been thinking about recently, so I thought I would share them with all of you since I haven't blogged for a while.

Now that the weather is nice, we have been outside constantly...except when the wind is too strong. My calling as an assistant scout leader has been keeping me busy too, and I just remembered I have pack meeting tonight.

Among other things, school has been going well. I turned in a rough draft of my final paper last week, and it was already 10 pages, with my references and a few paragraphs in each section. I am three weeks from being done, and I can't wait.

I just turned in a job application for a position with Health and Welfare in Twin Falls last week. I have been applying for jobs since last January, and I feel like this job is it. It fits my education, and my career goals...even though I believe a job is just a job. But it would give Brady a chance to stay home with the kids and finish his Master's degree, and since he has to do clinical's full time around January, I need to have a job anyway to pay the bills. So this is a great opportunity for our family...not to mention the prospective getting out of debt sooner than we hoped. BUT, they have to evaluate my resume packet and call me for an interview first...and I sincerely hope I get a chance to do that and not be rejected because I haven't worked for five years. It's overwhelming to think about, especially since I am very attached to our life in Idaho Falls with family close, a great ward, and great neighbors. I guess what I am saying is that we will go where the Lord wants us to go. I just hope and pray I don't get another rejection letter in the mail...

Ammon started preschool a couple of weeks ago with one of our wonderful neighbors as his teacher. Julie has been doing a great job, and already Ammon can write his own name and almost cut paper in a straight line. He loves to go to school! It's nice to be able to trade preschool for food...since we have more than enough of that to share.

Zenock has learned to pedal Ammon's tricycle, and thankfully they share it really well most of the time. Later this summer he gets to learn to use the toilet like a big boy!! I hope he gets it as quickly as Ammon did! It will be nice to save some more money by not buying diapers!

I think my favorite things about nice weather are Otter pops - especially the green and blue ones, sandals, and shorts/capris. It's so nice that I can now do all of these things without being cold all the time!!
