After bedtime

Well, Thayden went to sleep about 30 minutes ago and I feel like I finally have a break. I've been meaning to catch up on blogging and let everyone know whats been going on. We have about 3 weeks left in the semester, as of tomorrow! I will graduate in 10 school days! Can you tell I'm excited? I picked up my cap and gown last week and its hanging up in my closet. I'm totally nervous about everything that has to go on between now and then; pack up the apartment, a final, and 2 projects due.

I was fortunate enough today to make a photo shoot with some friends. The theme was Doll Face, it was really fun. Shane put my hair in curlers again so it would be all beautiful and full. The twist to the theme was that after we took beauty shots we got struck by lightening! Black makeup and crazy hair. I feel so grateful to have great friends around here to get me out of the monotonous routine I'm in.

Thayden is getting his first tooth. I can feel one that has poked through and I'm eagerly awaiting more! My little baby is becoming a little boy! He is also standing up on anything that will hold still and loves to eat anything we do!

I can't wait to see my family and to be officially done with my degree. Ohh...and the summer!

Shane thought it would be really funny to let Thayden empty the ENTIRE contents of our entertainment center. Luckily I was gone and it was all cleaned up by the time I got home!

5 weeks until graduation!

Ok, well, I am still alive and we are still here in rexburg. Thayden has been keeping me extra busy the last few weeks. He's gone from army crawling to crawling on all fours to standing up on things and it is just going so fast. He got his first ear infection 2 weeks ago, probably the first of many knowing how many Shane and I had. He is so adventurous and wants to know about everything around him.

Shane and I are doing well, we have both been really busy with school. I'll graduate in 5 weeks! I still can't believe that my secular learning is near an end. I absolutely love school and being able to continually learn new things. I'm extremely sad to see so many of my friends moving away. We're just doing a fake out! We'll be moving out for the summer but back for 1 semester this fall! Ohhh yah, did I tell everyone?? We're going to NORTH CAROLINA! Yahhhhh! This will be our 3rd year with APX, and we love it. All the new adventures and moving, what a better time than when our family is small!

Shane is still finishing up his school, we're hoping he'll get an internship for next fall/winter and be able to graduate. He's really liking the business side of construction management. He's put together a mock business plan for a company he wants to start. I'm really hoping we'll be able to put this all to good use in the future!

I absolutely love being a mom and all the joys and anguish it brings me. I truly wish my family was here closer so I could have a hug and smile when I need them most. Every time I think about NC I get butterflies in my stomach for the great adventure I'm sure we'll have this summer. I hope this finds you all well. We love you!!
