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

Gardens, Swimming, Chemistry *shudder*

This whole moving thing has been crazy! I can't find my connector for my camera. So I have no photos to upload. Which totally bums me out and keeps me from posting on here because I LOVE photos. They sometimes tell a better story than I do. We finally planted our garden! I'm super excited and hope that something will actually grow. We're really late in the season, but perhaps we'll get lucky. I have two tomato plants and a cucumber plant that were already grown when we bought them, so I'm praying that we'll at least benefit from those 3 plants. I also have some carrots, pumpkins, peppers, and peas growing! It will be amazing if we actually get anything. I feel that as soon as I see green pop up from the dirt I'm going to be doing a happy dance outside with my kids!

Both the boys are thriving with a backyard. We are outside every day and electronics has become a much smaller part of our life, which I love! I still have my little obsessions.... tv shows, facebook (curse you facebook!), and of course my blog! But now I find myself drawn away from them for the graces of the outdoors!

E and A are getting into swimming again! E is fearless and wants to swim all by himself. We went to a pool yesterday with Aunt M and "Uncle" C (he's actually Daddy M's cousin)  and E was trying with all his might to get out of Aunt M's hands and be free. Little does he know, he would most likely sink like a 25 lb rock. A is more aware of this sinking factor, but it has frozen him in fear of water. He does not like not being able to touch the bottom of the pool. In his defense... who does like that? I prefer having my feet on the floor as well! We just need to get him into swim lessons again, because it makes me very sad that he sits outside of the water and runs for his life as soon as someone comes over to bring him in the water.

On another note, chemistry is going good. I feel like I have a better grasp of it than I did in high school, but I still struggle with the concepts. I just pray that I will be blessed enough to get at least a B+ if not an A-. I love being back in school. It is such a wonderful feeling. Now I just wish I could learn all I need to learn right now to thrust me into a career! I don't want to wait 3-4 more years. :) Oh well, Utah isn't that bad. I can handle living here for a while longer. The people are pretty sweet here too.

Oh man I am slightly envious of you having your own yard, and garden. I would love to have a place to call my own...oh well, someday.

And how funny that Ayden is so afraid of the water. Brynlee is the same way. She used to love it, and now won't get in anywhere she can't touch.

Being back in school is such a nice break from the usual chaos of kids. I love being with other adults and using my brain for a while. Ha ha! Chemistry is a tough one, but I loved it! Which was so strange for me, because I used to hate it! Anyway, summer classes are killer. They move so fast! I'm in anatomy, and I'm trying my hardest to keep my head above water. I took Chem last semester, and it seemed hard then and I had like 3 months to learn everything...
