Major Update

So much has been going on-
We had a super fun filled summer with:
-Lots of camping

-Huge Zollinger Family Reunion, bummed that I didn't get a lot of pictures :(

-Lots of extra little ones running around my house

-Preparing for our first official year of homeschool

-Taking care of my lovely veggie garden

-Treking with the youth in my stake

-and so much more......................

Needless to say we have been busy, and I have not really had the desire to blog during all of the craziness of summer- but now that fall is setting in and things seem like they are slowing down (I am sure that is really just wishful thinking on my part :) maybe I will be able to get in a few more updates here and there!


Some pics of our summer adventures-

Long time..... no post

Things just get crazy! But we are always having fun! Things we have been up to since I last posted. We celebrated Aleck's second birthday- time flies..... I cannot believe he is two! He has been talking more and more each day- we were so worried for awhile but he has speech therapy now and is doing great. He is such a fun little guy to have around he keeps me on my toes! Valentines........... My two little leprecons..... What a wonderful life I have!

It's raining babies.......

You know when you want something so bad, and everywhere you turn everyone has that something that you are wanting.

This is when infertility is the hardest.

I was shocked when I found out that I was pregnant last June- and all too suddenly it was over- by the end of July the baby was gone, never to feel, or know if it was a he or a she.

I really feel like I handled the "loss well", all things considered. Now as my would have been, due date approaches I don't know how to feel.

Some days I am just sad and other days so frustrated- and then on others I just try my best to not think about it.

And then I see him-










and him-


And I remember-


I am blessed with two beautiful children who are incredible
and bring me so much love and joy.

All is Well.

Preschool

Aleck started preschool the last Monday in February, I don't think I was ready, but he seems to be just fine:)
Today he was going crazy waiting for the bus to come and get him, he was so excited!
These are pictures from his first day of school-





He has started saying cheese when I take his picture
{if you couldn't already tell}.


He had to show off his backpack.

I felt so bad on that first day, he had been so excited to go on a bus, but I didn't tell him that I wasn't coming. When I handed him off he looked so scared, it broke my heart. I am so glad that he didn't start crying, I don't think I would have let him go if he had.

He would hardly look at me as they were buckling him in.




At this point I was holding in my tears- so I wouldn't make a fool of myself in front of my neighbors.

{Oh boy, I sure love this kid}
