Brock Student of the week!

Brock is student of the week for preschool. He was very proud of his big poster and more importantly it was HIS and not something he had to share with Addison and Tyler. He got to bring in his favorite book "Danny and the Dinosaur Go to Camp" along with a movie which was Elmo's potty time.
Having multiples creates mixed feelings. You can look at them and see that they have what other kids do not. They will always have not only a friend but an extension of themselves. I could not imagine having that comfort with someone at such an early age and know it will extend through their life. I can tell they get tired of sharing all the time and being together yet if you take one away all they talk about is what the missing one is doing. I often think that their will come a day when I have to split them up. I wonder how will they survive in separate class rooms. Will they miss each other or enjoy being themselves. Right now in preschool they stick with each other like a little clump. I wonder if once they are split up will they constantly look to see where the others are as they do now.
Well those are my thoughts for the day. Just a quick note one the illnesses, the trio seemed to make it through with a very mild case. Adam got it really bad for about 2 days (I mean really bad) and I survived both H1N1 and strep throat together. Did you even know it was possible to have both? Ugg! Oaklen went through with nothing at all although he wished for a mild case to miss school. :) All are healthy now and looking forward to the move!

Swine flu

It's making its rounds and wiping us out. :(

Where are we?

We are very busy. I know that is always my answer but just when I think we can not take on anymore more comes along. I think possibly Adam and I strive on change and constant movement. I wonder one day what it would be like to settle down. Is there such a thing? Adam and I took a small vacation a few months ago and the plan was to lay around and watch movies all day in bed. I made it through one movie and decided I had to get up and get into town. I get bored so quickly maybe that is why we are always so busy.

In November Adam and I placed an offer on a new house. Two months later we got an offer on ours and accepted it. The same day the house we were buying got a back up offer which they accepted. So after spending the day contacting lawyers and the broker to find the loop hole so we could keep the house I finally found it. It was do everything we had listed in the contingency within 72 hours. It was doable, but I decided a house was not worth fighting over. How silly to fight over a house. So we walked away. We now have four weeks to be out of our house and no house to move into. We are most likely going to build and find a rental house hopefully very soon.

Oaklen is still having a few problems in school, but very much enjoying church on Wednesday nights. I think it's what he looks forward to all week getting out of the house away from 3 year olds who sneak into his room and eat all his candy and away from his parents. It's his time to be with his friends. I really wish for him though that school would start to be more enjoyable. We have had a long talk about trying to look for the positives in the situations that seem to drag him down. I am hoping that the whole family including myself can take this advice as we are under so much stress.

The trio are sadly non stop fighting over anything and everything. I wish I had enough rooms to separate them so they could all have their own space. I'm sure constantly being together is tough. They are sooo active. I no longer can get them to settle down for anything. I try all day long just to get them to watch a little tv but they move from room to room leaving a tornado of toys as they pass through. They are still attending preschool three days a week and enjoying it.

The three days of preschool a week gives me a chance to keep up with my school work. I managed a 4.0 last quarter and look to be on target for repeating the 4.0 this quarter as well. I hope to be able to find time to keep this blog more updated. I will work on some pictures in the next coming days.
