pretty random...

here are a few things that are going on around here,
they are completely random and in no special order...

~ i sat down to see what new pictures i could upload from the last week or so. and i realized i have taken only one photo since jaelyn's birthday two weeks ago. this is the random picture i took since then. we were at josh's soccer game last saturday, this is jordyn inside of the case that holds our fold up chairs! it was raining so she was trying to stay warm. she comes up with the craziest things sometimes! i can't believe that i have been so slack on taking pictures!

~ jaelyn had her one year check up at the end of last week. she has grown 10 inches and gained 10 pounds since the day she was born. she is 30 inches long and weighs 17 lbs 11 oz. jaelyn is in the 75th %ile for height and in like the 0%ile for weight. she is tall and tiny! her head was in the 75%ile, our doctor said that was because she is so smart!!!

~ the big kids are doing great in school. they have adjusted well. i am so confident that we made the right decision to send them to school. i feel like a ton of bricks has been lifted off my shoulders!! i have had conferences with both of their teachers. i am very pleased with their teachers. God completely matched my kids with the best teachers for them. they are making friends and doing well in their schoolwork. they have adjusted to just about everything. getting up early is still something we all are still adjusting to. oh and packing lunches, there is just something about packing my kid's lunches that drives me crazy. we do them at night, but it still is such an ordeal.

~ jesiah is doing good with the big kids at school, sometimes i can tell he misses them being home. but he is such a great kid, and he loves to play with jaelyn. and when he isn't playing with her he will play by himself! he is great at independent play!! and it is crazy to think that this time next year he will be in kindergarten!

~ last week, i attended an information session at a local nursing school, mercy school of nursing. i have begun the process of going back to school to finish my nursing degree. and it really is a process. there is a lot that has to fall in place and has to be decided before i start school. i am not sure of the timing of everything and how it will all line up, but i know God does. i am relying on Him more than ever to guide me in the right direction and help make the right decisions. i know He has given me this desire and passion to become a momma/baby nurse and i really want to achieve it. i just want it to be in His timing. and i know that it is going to be a lot of work, and i want to be able to keep my family first while being in school.

~ i have been fighting off sickness for about two or three weeks. the rest of my family passed around a yucky cold while i continued to fight it off. last week, i ended up getting a cough, but nothing more, thankfully. the cough is really annoying and i am so ready for it to go away. it is almost gone! and i am praying that we all stay clear of the rest of the nasty germs that are floating around out there.

so those are just a few of the things that are on my mind today!
what's on yours?

That picture is TOO funny! Aren't you glad you check your photos regularly? Now you know that you have a gap and can make up for it. Imagine those who never clear their memory card... they might have whole months go by without any photographic evidence! Great update. I know nursing school has been on your heart for a long while. Looking forward to seeing you soon! Blessings!
