This month has been fun but tiring. We had such a great vacation it was hard to get back into the daily schedule of school and speech. Chad's been so busy with work. Busy is good but again.....tiring. He keeps busy with his church calling and all the other "Dad" and "Husband" things that need to be done. Nicholas has been working hard in school. He loves Math (he gets that from Daddy.) He is also really good at Spelling. Almost every spelling test he's gotten 100%. We are so proud of him. He started in a new class at church and really likes it. He just got his very own CTR ring on Sunday. He was excited to wear it to school today to show his friends and his teacher. He is such a good example to us and his little brother. He also lost his 6th tooth last week. He is looking more like a young man and less like a little kid now. As happy as we are that he is growing up it is also sad since he will always be our baby. Jacob is one busy kid. He really likes preschool. His best friend at school is a girl named Emily. She is a lot like him (more on the quiet side) so they just love to sit together and play. The teachers say that they hold hands almost daily. It is just so cute. He is also keeping busy with speech therapy. I have seen such an improvement in how he pronounces his letters. So have his teachers and other family members. He tries hard and make time to practice at home. Only a few more months and he'll be off to Kindergarten. Chad and I were discussing that the other night and just can't believe how fast the time goes. I am keeping busy. I work two afternoons a week. I also help Nicholas' teacher with all the party planning that needs to be done in their classroom. Young Women's has been getting more and more busy with camp coming up. I know its still months away but there is so much we have to accomplish in the next few months it doesn't seem like enough time. I am so thankful for my counselors. For awhile it was just me and my first counselor (who is just awesome!!) Then in December we were able to get a 2nd counselor and we are all so excited that she is able to be with us. Our Young Women are so great, we all feel so blessed to be able to serve them. Well that is pretty much it. Keeping busy with life and trying to enjoy the ride. We hope everyone is enjoying 2013 so far. One month down, 11 more to go!!
