 Today was the long awaited day for James to take his all about me board to class. I knew he loved to hike, he always wishes he could fly. I was shocked to find out he wants to be a cowboy when he grows up. I was thinking, has he ever seen or talked to a cowboy? Has he watched a cowboy movie? I love finding these little things out about my children.

Thanks to Jaden we have a mowed lawn. Dad was great to help out a little. Thanks Jaden! Jaden started out in a button down shirt. Then he was seen in 2 Thomas the train shirts and finished his day off in a Lightning McQueen shirt. You make sure you have your Jr. Ranger badge pinned to every shirt. You earned your badge during our spring break spent in Moab Canyon lands. You're so proud of that badge!

We have a crawler. Last Sunday we came home from Grandma and Grandpa Coles mission farewell.
 I set you down and you started a scoot/crawl across the floor. This morning I set you down and you saw a string across the room and you got on your knees and started crawling. It's funny because you can't sit by yourself for very long. You crawled before you learned to sit by yourself.
Jaden Graduates from The Waterford Institute Pre-school 2011-2012
Ms. Marge and Jaden age 4
Jaden missed less than 5 days of school. He was given a special gift for attendance, which was
a case of learning videos. He was also given a package of books, diploma and cap. Sweet Ms. Marge
cried and told the kids she loved them. This year was a wonderful experience. She always gave
great advise to the parents and was so kind to each child.I will be thankful for the wonderful friendships
formed with the mothers. We have formed a mothers support group/friendship that will hopefully
last through the years.We meet twice a month outside of the preschool. These woman are so sweet
and smart. It's great to feel that support from other Moms. I don't know who recieved more from
this, Me or Jaden?

Blogging is new and exciting. I'm thankful for a place to journal my families lives. 9 of them. Let's see how this goes. With Facebook I would document our day to day life but it was lost as soon as the new posts were up. I want my kids to remember all the little fun, hard, exciting, to day things we get to experience together. Hopefully a great place to measure our kindness to each other and our thoughts of others. We want to be a family that serves. It was a goal Joe and I had from our engagement until now. We want to think of others and their comfort first. Hopefully we will start with each other in this small family, in our home in these 9 lives! Let's see how it goes.
