Our 4th year in a nutshell

Everyone keeps asking me when and where we're moving over the next year so I thought I would just list it all on here!
Cory will be traveling around the country doing "externships" for his 4th year of school. Basically he is going around to places he might want to do a residency at and putting in some time there. The girls and I will be joining him all of the months he is in Denver and of course when he is home in Idaho for 2 months. Otherwise Lauren and Kristen and I head home in mid-August for Lauren to start Kindergarten!! I can't believe my baby girl is that old. CRAZY! We sure will miss Cory but luckily we will be living with my parents so I will have lots of help :) We are excited to move to Denver in 2 days and really excited to move back to Idaho to spend time with friends and family. Then we head back to Denver in March. Hopefully I will stay sane through all of this...wish me luck!!

This is our year in a nutshell:

June- Denver CO
July- Denver CO
August- Denver CO
Sept- Tacoma WA
Oct- Federal Way WA
Nov- Tacoma WA
Dec- Vacation in Idaho for Christmas!
Jan- Lewiston ID
Feb- Grand Blanc MI
March- Denver CO
April- Denver CO
May- Denver CO

Then off to wherever "Dr. Brown" gets Residency after that for 3 years!

A good day!

Mother's day has been great. I had a wonderful time at church this morning and my girls went to their classes without too much fuss . This is a first for Kristen! She usually screams when I leave her in nursery. She's getting used to it just in time to move and be with a bunch of strangers again!
Lauren made me a really cute necklace in her Primary class. I've proudly worn it all day and she keeps asking if I love my new necklace :) Then we came home and I got to have lots of quiet time and a nap while Cory played with the girls. Then Cory made dinner ,a very rare occurrence in our house, I think I can count on one hand how many times he has made dinner! It was yummy grilled chicken (he made his own marinade and it was good!) baked potatoes, and corn on the cob. Then he cleaned up dinner and the kitchen while I vegged on the couch. Kristen decided to go pee in the potty 3 different times today too. I guess she's potty training herself! It was a great day!!!
I hope all of you Mommies out there had Happy Mother's day!

Mother's Day!

This is for all of you Mother's out there, especially you MOM and Mom DEB!!!

Thanks for sending this to Cory, Keith N. We enjoyed it thoroughly!

TMI warning....#2 did a #2 in the potty!

Kristen went #2 in the potty for the first time today!!! I was hoping this was a start of constantly doing that only in the potty from now on and no more in the diapers like Lauren did at this age, but then Kristen got a glimpse of what was sitting in her potty and freaked! She found it VERY disturbing. Pointing at it and backing away quickly while going no no no no like she thought it was something horrible. We all celebrated the fact though and did the ceremonial flushing of the poo down the big potty and then she thought it was fine. My baby is growing up! :(

Here's a sweet picture of her to get your mind off of the poo...

Girls Weekend

I got to have a fabulous time with my girlfriends this weekend! All of us that have been together here in AZ waiting patiently for our husbands to get done with school, meanwhile we have all become such great friends. It really has been what has kept me (almost) sane in the last few years. We had a great time at a local resort soaking up sun, floating on the lazy river, screaming down the water slide, eating great food, sharing our favorite things with each other, and sharing other "interesting" things with each other, and having people wonder what kind of mischief this fabulous group of ladies were up to! I am so sad we all are about to embark on the next phase of life without one another. Everyone is about to be scattered to all different corners of the country but hopefully we will all be able to keep tabs on each other and maybe get together for another weekend next year?! I hope so! What a freakin' blast!!! I love you all!
