I don't know why I put this off for so long, I check out other people's blogs almost everyday. I just don't really feel like writing when I am feeling so negative right now. I have been such a complainer lately, and haven't had my girls nights to get it all out, you know.
We seem to have finally figured out our pool, still a few quirks, but at least it hasn't turned green lately. I love having a pool, so do the kids. Its so nice to go and jump in after I have been in the garage or yard sweating to death, and then cool off so quickly. Thankyou Jeremy for only letting us look at houses with pools.
Caden just turned 5 last week, he loves telling people he is 5 now. I finally found the cord to post pictures, but I have not downloaded them yet so next time I will make that a priority. His cake was a baseball decorated with licorice as the stitching. So easy, then Ella tells me for her birthday, next week, she wants a barbie cake with the barbie in the middle. Which I have done for her but she was only 3. I said, can you choose a cake that is a little easier to decorate, so she said awl right. Thank goodness, just because I know how to do it doesn't mean I want to.
Ella has been going to school this week hasn't missed a day yet this week. The first two weeks it was such a struggle to get her to go. I talked with the principle and she was very understanding. so Monday she started in her new first grade class, which was a substitute for two days. Thank goodness she really liked the sub. Today the regular teacher was back, and Ella seems to like it. She wants me to take her to school everyday, so our next step is dropping her off without me having to walk her to class, then hopefully soon after she will take the bus. Lots of drama from this little one.
Night times have been my enemy lately. Jeremy has been working night shift going in at 5 and getting home around 7:30 or so. Only two more nights.Its crazy, it throws everything off for him, he averages about 5 hours of sleep and then eats two meals a day. I can't tell you how much I dislike the whole night time routine with my kids. It has never been heaven trying to get the kids to bed. Now I can't even describe it, I keep deleting everything I write. Ella is terrified of being alone at night. We were out of town she saw a scary movie and has not been the same since, and is rubbing off onto Caden, its totally lame.
Anyway, I know my girls all know what its like with our intern husband schedules, life gets a little stressful. I am looking forward to this one being over, but is ob going to be any better next month, we'll see.

New Changes

Well we have been living in our new house for a little over a week now, I love our new house. It's very roomy. I love our pool but hate the learning curve that comes with it. I just went out to turn some stuff on and what I thought was pigeon poop this morning looks a little more like black algea tonight. I tried to scrub it up and its stuck good. Black algae is the worst kind to get rid of, so I am learning. So we haven't really been able to use the pool this weekend.
The kids have started school. Caden is in the same pre- school he was in last year, so he really likes it. Today was his birthday, so he was spotlight at school, he loved it, and he warmed up a little to our new primary yesterday, when they sang Happy Birthday to him. We just had a quiet little b-day party at home, and my brother and his family stopped be at cake time. since some cousins were there I think he felt like it was kind of a birthday party for him.
Ella started first grade last week. She is at a new school this year. THe school had a lot of late first graders sign up so they had to open another class. Her class has a long term sub until they can get a surplus teacher in the district for her class. It's not really working out for Ella. So hopefully we can do something about it soon and she'll be happy to go to school, instead of dreading it.
Taylor is jibber jabbering a ton. It is so cute. He loves it when he sees animals. He kind of calls everything a puppy. There was a young looking bird on the step right outside of our back door, that wasn't getting scared away. he was so excited about it, He kept making his puppy sounds. THe kids even had time to name it, he hung around for so long, they named the bird Zeke.
Jeremy's schedule continues to be crazy. He is working nights for the next couple of weeks.
As for me I was still unpacking our stuff, when I was called into YW's. I am sure it will be fun, especially when we get a little more settled in.
Life has been full lots of changes in the last little bit, but we are up for the challenge.
