The only 4Th of July Picture I have
I have been such a slacker lately with blogging. But scroll down and you can find out what we've been up too.

Back to School

So for any of you that don't know this already, we are not moving to Utah. I have such mixed feelings about this. I am the biggest mommas girl in the world. When we moved out of my parents house and down the street I cried. So I don't really know how I thought I was going to be able to move to Utah, but I kind of felt like I could do it. So when things didn't work out it I was way more emotional about it than I thought I would be. It's weird because when you pray about something and ask for things to work out you always add at the end of that, "if that's what we are suppose to do." But than when it doesn't work out, its hard to remember that part.
But honestly I am so excited to be staying in California. Not excited to be paying what it cost to live here, but what can you do.
So on to the next chapter of our life. I have decided to go back to school. Jared and I have gone back and forth on this about a million times. I love Jared with all my heart and he is an amazing dad and husband but him and school don't mix. Now, this was not Jared's idea. He would continue to go to school for as long as it took to finish, but together we have decided that this is the best thing for are family. I am taking advantage of my mother in law being the dean at a community college in Santa Clarita. In 1 day she had me all ready to go in all the classes I wanted. I am going to be taking on-line class for now and continue to do so until I run out of options. I am going to be going for my Business degree in Human resources. As much as I wish I could be a stay at home mom for the rest of my life, I know I am doing what is best for my family. If Jared wasn't so amazing with Connor I could never do it in a million years. He is the most attentive dad in the world. He watches Connor like a Hock. I am taking 9 units this coming fall. My OCD of course says I should be taking way more. But I figure I better start out with that and make sure it all fits into my day. Mommy during the day Student at night. I am really motivated to make this work and balance everything at the same time.
Now for a Connor update: Of course he is still the love of my life and the most crazy insane wonderful boy in the whole world. I always say to him, "I've never meet a baby like you." He has mastered not walking but running. Decided that he no longer rides in the cart but wants to walk. We are working on holding mommies hand and not running away. He is starting to kind of talk. He has his own baby language and will talk to you for minutes. His hair in crazy. I know I should get it cut but there's no way he would sit still. He is almost 16 months but at his 15 month check up he was perfect. Perfect weight, height everything. We are so thankful for all of are family and all that they do to support and help us. Connor is so lucky to have all of his Grandparents so close.

Where did June go???

Well I can't believe that it has been a whole month sense I last posted. June flew by so fast which doesn't hurt my feelings because I love the month of July, its my Birthday month!!!! Connor and I have had a lot of fun trying to keep busy this summer. Some of the highlights have been the Zoo with Breanne and her kids, lots of trips to Legoland with the cousins, the park, the pool, and of course are favorite place Costco. Connor and I love to go to Costco. You can get a yogurt and a soda for $2.10 whats better than that. Connor is so BUSY!!!! This has so been the hardest stage so far. I remember my mom telling me last 4th of July that this would be my easiest year with Connor for 4th of july festivities. At the time I thought no way. I have a 3 month old baby, it can only get easier. Gosh was I wrong. There is no way I could take connor this year. The whole time I would just be chasing him around and it would be so hard. So we will be celebrating the 4th in are own way. Still fun but it will be a lot easier for me.

Now for some news. We may be moving. Its not for sure yet, but Jared has applied for a really great job in St. George Utah. His really good friends live there and they were able to give Jared a heads up on a police dispatching position. Jared has already been up to St. George and was able to meet with the Supervisor and really get a feel for the job and the city. He loves it!!! Thanks to Kristin and Jon he had the best experience there and really feels good about everything. Again nothing is for sure yet but it seems like things are going in the right direction. I obviously hate the idea of not living 3 minutes from my mom, but it would be so good for my family. The job pays more than he makes now and has great benefits. The biggest plus is we pay 1140 for are 1 bedroom apartment and in st george we can get a beautiful 3 bedroom 2 bath home for 900. You do the math, better paying job and cheaper rent. Its hard to not go along with it. I'll keep everyone posted. It seems like if everything works out we will be moving maybe mid August. For the time being Jared is spending all his extra time learning the dispatching codes. I made flash cards for him because there are 100 codes so I actually no them all too. Thanks Kristy and Jon for all of your help with this whole thing!!!!
Here are some pictures from some of are summer fun so far.
