(no subject)

I've never, to my knowledge been tagged for one of these before butwhistlererin tagged me so here it goes.

1. Post the rules on your blog.
2. Write six random things about yourself.
3. Tag six people at the end of your post.
4. If you are tagged, JUST DO IT, and pass the tag along.

Okay, hmmm... six things.

1. I hate roller coasters. They terrify me beyond imagination. I did not know this about myself until Dan and I went to Silverwood for our 4th wedding anniversary in 2007. I had watched a bunch of the TV shows about roller coasters and thought they just looked so fun. So we got to Silverwood and Dan took me on Panic Plunge and that wasn't too bad. Next stop was the Corkscrew, also not too bad. And then came Tremmors. As we climbed to the drop I knew I was in over my head but it was too late! I screamed the whole time out of sheer terror. Dan said he looked over at me at one point and he knew I wasn't having fun. I was shaking for at least half an hour after the ride was over. I still went on Timber Terror but only because I wanted to say I had ridden them all. I didn't enjoy it either. And I will absolutely not be going on the new one just to keep the streak alive. No more for me thanks!

2. I am a video game junkie. In fact at the moment I am playing a game with Dan and blogging and trying to do some homework at the same time.

3. I LOVE college football. The TV is always on all day on Saturday. It doesn't matter who is playing I will watch any college game. We took the boys to their first Vandals game earlier this season and we have tickets to next weeks game and the Boise State Game. 

4. M&M's are my absolute favorite candy. I could finish a whole bag in a day all by myself. When they are in the house Dan has to hide them from me and ration them so I don't go overboard.

5. I used to play flute but haven't touched it in years!

6. My husband and I play rock, paper, scissors to make decisions because neither one of us is decisive.

I'm not tagging anyone specific but if you do it let me know!

Its been a long time

So school started and I kinda droped of the face of the planet. I'm enjoying school this semester. My classes are ok but what I really love is my practicum. I'm in a 6th grade class and I LOVE it. The kids are great, very respectful and really funny. My cooperating teacher is really cool. She has actually asked me to student teach with her next year. My practicum partner is a piece of work. She 24 years old and her husband is a senior citizen who its blind. Bizare. She has almost no social skills what so ever and actually can come off as very rude to the students and teacher. I'm working hard and trying to ignore the fact that she is bizare. She is actually considering dropping which would kind of put me in a sticky situation with my part of our partner project but I'll muddle through and get it done.

I have made a lot of really fantasic friends. There is a group of us who have all 17 credits of our cousework together. Its been really cool to build a community and very nice to have a close group of friends who are going though the same things I'm going through.

Other than that I had a terribly frustrating experience with another Dr in Spokane. Jason and I went up to have his circumcision evaluated as well as his hydrocele. (I you don't remember what I'm talking about check here and here) Anyway I got all the way to Spokane on Monday Sept. 15 and found out that his appointment had been moved to the next monday. They had sent a letter and I never got it. I was really upset because I had to drive to Spokane and back alone, TWICE! But when we finally did se the Dr all she told us was that he would indeed need surgery but the scheduler was on vacation so I won't be able to do that until mid October. So basically they didn't tell me anything I didn't already know so it was really frustrating.

I also threw Dan a suprise bithday party but that will have to be another post cause I have to get to class.

Not Me



I found this I idea over at my charming kids and I loved it so I jumped on board! Feel free to join me.

Saturday I did not let Jonathan have cake and ice cream for dinner because it was easier than arguing the benefits of dinner in front of a house full of guests.

I absolutely did not surf the internet and blog avoiding the journal article review that is due tomorrow morning in math class. I am far too responsible to ever do that.

I did not go all the way to Spokane for a Dr's appointment only to get there and find out it was canceled. And upon finding out that I had driven to Spokane for no reason I most certainly did not flip out at the male receptionist who was not the least bit understanding as to why I was frustrated!

Tummy Time

Mommy decided it was time for a little tummy time... Jason apparently had a different idea...

Opinionated

Jason has developed a few strong opinions. One of these opinions is that he does not think highly of being left out of things. He likes to be around people and squawks when left alone. This has made dinner time a little interesting recently. Normally one of us ends up eating, or attempting to eat, one handed while he squirms around on our lap. Tonight I decided it was time to pull out the high chair. While he is still a few weeks from eating any solid food he does have good enough neck control to sit very well supported. So tonight we ate dinner with both hands and a happy baby.

Growing Baby


Jason has a Teddy Bear name Kodiak and we take a picture of them together every month to see how Jason is growing. We don't have a picture of Jason and Kodiak when Jason was born because we didn't build him until Jason was born so they could have the same birthday.



One Month - May 18, 2008



Two Months - June 18, 2008



Three Months - July 18, 2008



Four Months - August 18, 2008

4 month stats
17 pounds
26.5 inches

We finally got the referral to the Dr in Spokane who will fix his circumcision. They have decided, for now, that the bleeding must have been a fluke or something. All of his blood work came back normal but they will want to recheck later in life, probably when he turns 2 or so. He also has hydrocele that will probably have to be surgically corrected. Our Dr said they should be able to correct both at the same time but only the specialist will know for sure. Our appointment is on September 15. I'll probably end up having to go alone because I don't want Dan to take time off for an appointment knowing surgery is coming sooner or later and I'd rather him save his leave for that.

Please Pray

I have been following the story of Nathan, Tricia and Gweneth Lawrenson for many months now. Tricia has Cystic Fibrosis and is recovering from a double lung transplant in April. She has also developed Post-Transplant Lymphoma Disorder and is currently going though chemo. Their story is a beautiful story of the faithfulness of God. They would love prayer. If you don't have time to read their whole story here is Nate's fast track update. If you do decide to read their whole story grab a box of tissues, you'll need them.

Thank you for praying for this family.

God Bless!
