Catching Up

Okay, so I have to apologize for being the worst blogger known to mankind. Seriously, it has been quite awhile since I blogged. But I am going to try to do better. Now whether this will actually happen is another story all together.

Life right now is going really well for me. I have my struggles and my short-comings but I enjoy life. I am still loving the opportunity to live with Melissa's family. Her kids are amazing and make me want to have a big family one day. Now don't get me wrong... they are still kids and sometimes I really like when the house is quiet. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to live here and am so grateful that I have been able to do so. I have really made a special bond with Kaelen since moving out here. When I come home from work he comes running over to see me. I love it. He is one of the sweetest/cutest/helpful kids I know. Okay well maybe not so helpful... but he does try to be.

I get the opportunity to room with Cambree and it has been fun to room with my twin. She is just like me when I was that age and sometimes I just have to laugh. I can remember have the same frustrations or trying really hard to put a dramatic eye-roll into my sentence. It is fun. In fact because she is so set in doing an eye-roll, we have had eye-rolling classes to teach her how to get the full effect.

Jorden and Taylor are such munchkins. They are always trying to find some new way of making life interesting. They also come up with the funniest sayings. Those two can always make me laugh.

Living with Melissa, I think has made us closer. It is nice to be able to talk to her all the time and to be a part of her life. I think it amazes people that we are actually 12 years apart.

I miss certain things from back home. I miss the rest of my family. Right now is basketball season and Mikkel is playing on two teams. It is killing me to have to hear about the games secondhand and after-the-fact!!

Living out here has definitely been a growing experience for me and I am so grateful for it. I do wish it could snow a little less though or maybe even be a little warmer. I can't complain though, compared to last winter this one is amazing!!

School is going well for me and I am grateful for that. I have been working really hard to get ahead again in classes and will hopefully be able to just coast from here on out. Don't get me wrong I will still work hard but the stress goes away when you turn a paper tonight that isn't technically due until next Saturday.

I still love my job. It makes me laugh sometimes. I always get the funniest assortment of kids or people there. I love it. I love that not only do I get to work with little kids but I get to work with big kids too.

I hope this blog finds you all doing well. I will try and do better at posting on a more regular basis. Lots of love!!!
