Ok so I know it had been a few weeks since my weekly update so sorry about that. I went to my sister Ida's one weekend and then last weekend was mothers day so I enjoyed being spoiled, but I am back!
Last week we got Tolson
registered for school. He will be in the dual language program at the school
which I am very excited about. They teach half the day in English and half in
Spanish and they have it set up so that the ESL kids can learn English better
and the SSL kids can learn Spanish better. I am really hoping tat the few years
we have down here will help Tolson really pick up the language. He was very
excited about getting registered for school until he learned he needs a TB test
(they kept calling it a shot) and now he says he doesn't want to go. Hopefully
he will live!
Here is the fun we had this week. (well as much as I can
I don't really remember what days we did what so I am going to
just tell you all the fun we had. Tolson started preschool this week. I met
this super nice gal here that does a preschool in her home. She just moved here
in Jan so she doesn't really know anyone and only has one other student
other than her own daughter. She really want to get more for next year but
doesn't really know very many people. (she is not BP or LDS) She offered to
have Tolson come for May and June for half the cost if i would please share with
my friends about her school. So tolson went and had a wonderful time. Its only
one day a week right now and he wants to go everyday!
We went to the
pool probably 3 times this week (once inviting his teacher and her kids) We LOVE
our pool. Its a splash pool with lots of kid friendly features. Two different
parks and the library once. We also went to story time at Chick-fil-a. Jason
started working the midnight shift so he gets home about 9am and goes to bed. I
try to get the kids out of the house for the morning so he can have it quiet, so
we venture to lots of random places. We drove through downtown this week and it
is like we are in puerto pinasco. But it looks like there could be some fun
shopping down there. I am not sure I would go until I learn a bit more Spanish
but maybe when mom and dad come we can go. (maybe)
Anyway our life
has been different with this shift change but not as hard as I thought. Jason
is up about 3 or 4pm and plays with the kids and helps with dinner. We put them
to bed and then he takes a nap until he has to get up and get ready for work. I
like it! I get to see him for several hours during the day and get the evenings
So nothing really exciting to report. I am full swing into
my calling in Primary. We have several positions that aren't filled so mostly I
am running around asking people I have never met to come help with nursery or
teach a class, but its good! I actually feel very adequate here. Most of the
members are young in the church and don't have a lot of confidence in themselves
but its fun to help where I can and try to take them by the hand and help them
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying life. I am sad I
will miss my nephews arrival home from his mission but I will hopefully see him next month when I come.
Until next week!

A cool dude in Hummer jammies and some red sun glasses!
The library had a story time "graduation" for the kids which I admit is weird but still a fun party. they had little hats, goodies bag with a new book in them and a certificate for each kid. They fed them lunch and read a story and did some songs. The kids had fun and got a free book so no complaints from me!!!
Seriously so cute! She is such a fun a goofy girl! We love the little girly girl she is becoming with her obsession with shoes and all!
We have been searching for a Laredo TX post card to send to friends and family but cannot find any so we decided to make our own. We found this cool landmark thing at a travel center outside of town. So some of you may be seeing this in the mail soon!
Tolson also wanted to take a picture next to the water fountain so here it is! Love these crazy kids of mine!!!
While visiting the Ewings this past weekend, Adalee got into Delaney's room and found her makeup. I must say at least she put it on her face in sort of the right places. If she was going for the clown look she was spot on!!!
We had a good week! got new carpet put in the apartment. has story time graduation and then took a fun weekend trip to San Antonio to hang out with Ida's family! We love living close to them and will be very sad when they leave us in a few months! Oh well! See you all next week!
