We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Thanks for the Help

BYUs Decision

I started the application process to BYU around Halloween last year feeling ready to learn and ready to be back in school. It was a slow process and I wasn't really in any hurry to make it to a specific deadline. It took me until the beginning of 2010 to completely finish the process. Needless to say I have been nervous about their decision ever since I turned my application in. The first time I applied, I did not get accepted. Maybe my essay just wasn't good enough, seeing as it was a copy from one of my scholarship essays. haha Or maybe there were other reasons I wasn't accepted. I have come to feel that if it had been me that had been accepted to BYU and McKay to BYU-I, that our little family would have suffered financially, even more so than we do now; because yes we still are poor students. :) The job market here in Provo is much wider than in Rexburg and I would have moved up to Idaho to be with McKay, if that's where he was going to school. But instead we were able to move her because he was already here.

Anyway- after many nervous days when the BYU application popped into my head, I have finally been given an answer.  

AAAAAANNNNND, I have been accepted to BYU!!!!!!!!

About dang time!

I will start this Spring... so April? And I'll for SURE be going part time. As in the minimum amount I can possibly get away with. I'm not sure if I'll take online classes yet. That's most likely what I'll do though, because I'm thinking that I'd have to get a sitter every mon/wed/fri or tues/thurs if I had a class during the day.
