Catch Up- April

It's a good thing I have all my photos organized by Month/Year so I can know what I have missed on this thing. Life has been good and CRAZY. The end of April and Beginning of May were probably the CRAZIEST but it hasn't really died down since.

 I am constantly amazed with where we are at in life. There are so many days when I catch myself silently thanking my Heavenly Father for bringing us to this point, even if it took 3 LONG years in searching for jobs.

 In April, the elementary school kindergarten classes do a Zoo program and then they head to the zoo. It was so much fun! I was able to go to the zoo with Cayten and we had a BLAST! Of course, I pulled out the video camera to record his zoo program and the stupid thing didn't work. I've only got still pictures. I was pretty bummed.

They learned so many cute songs for this program.  I found myself tearing up because I can't believe I have a little boy old enough for school programs.  These thoughts always get the best of me.  In 6.5 years he went from baby to this and that seems like yesterday.  In 6.5 years from now, I will have a teenager.  HOLY CRAP!

My Carsyn has been learning going up and down the stairs.  It took him a while and a few bumps and bruises but he finally has it down.  This cut looks a lot worse than it is.  The skin didn't break and it never bled.  It was more like a giant blood blister.

The last week of April I did the HARDEST thing I have EVER done.  I let my son (Cayten) go to Florida with his grandparents for 2.5 weeks!  It was so hard for me but he had a blast.  I am grateful he had the opportunity to go and have the time of his life!  Here's a picture just before going into the airport.

These next photos are from the zoo trip.  We went to the zoo the same day Cayten left for Florida.  I was grateful for the extra couple hours I got to be with just me and him.  There were days when he was gone that I felt as if he had died and I was never going to see him again.  It was so hard!  I love my kids!

In April we also painted our upstairs from a peach color to turquoise and grey.  I was scared at first but I LOVE it.  I still need to find other ways to bring color into my house.  I've got  the decorators bug!

We also had fun going mini golfing, to the aquarium, and many other fun activities!  Here's a picture of my cute boy!
