School has started

Well school is back in session. Which is really weird that I have a kid in school, which is a whole new experience for me. Trystan is in 5th grade a Wilcox elementary. He is also in football this year. We run from school to home to football and back to home. Our afternoons are crazy busy these days. Gary's business is going good. We added a new contract to the mix. He now has three employees and two trucks one Pocatello and one in Twin Falls. We have been a week into the new contract, it is a little scary. We have had some trials and some chances for learning. Lets just pray that future weeks go a little smoother. It is teaching Gary a lot about patience and understanding. We have two really great employees and one questionable one. It has brought on a missionary experience and many other blessing. I just hope the blessing out way the trials. The little kids are doing really good. Rylee is turning out to be a super sister she is learning how to share and how to handle situations where all she wants to do is hit. Dalyn is almost two and learning how to talk. It is fun to watch him learn how things work. He has learned so much in the last little while it is a miracle. All and all life is busy and stress but really good.

Summer 2009

Wow this summer has been crazy. I feel like it is almost over and we have only been camping once. Gary's new career has been crazy and now he only has sundays off for us to go do stuff together as a family. We have been on lots of little trips this year. The kids and I went to Oregon for Dean and Lisa's wedding. It was fun we camped on the beach it was so nice to spend the time together as a family. Rylee loved to swim in the ocean but she said it was really cold and tasted funny. She is growing up so quick it is amazing. We also have gone to yellowstone park twice this year. We went one time with our friends the Gaddy's from Utah. It was their first time to the park. I went with Rylee and my friend Kristi Casper. That turned out to be a great day but we had some trials. We got a flat tire in the park and so we pulled off where we could and went to fix the tire and realized that when I got new tires from Les Schwab they didn't replace my spare. So we were stranded. It was so scary. Luckily the lord was looking out for us that day and he sent us some help in the way of two wonderful construction workers. They were able to pull my tire off and fix it. They wouldn't accept money or any kind of payment. It was so wonderful to get help from a very unlikely source. I am truly thankful and I can't wait until I can help someone like they helped me.

A little insight into our world

Hi everyone this is my first day of blogging, should be interesting. Well I want to do a update about the things that are going on in our world now. So here goes..... Gary and I have been married for 11 1/2 years. Wow that is amazing I can't believe how fast time flies. We have lived in a few different places throughout our marriage. We started out in Pocatello Id. until Gary joined the military then we got stationed at Ft. Bliss Tx.. For everyone who doesn't know that is in El Paso Tx. which is pretty much the arm pit of Texas. Gary's little brother Kendall moved with us to Texas. He lived with us from 1998 until moved in with his wife Melissa in 2005. We lived in El Paso until 2003 then we moved to Denver CO. for me to go to school at Bel Rea Institute. Erika moved in with us that year to go to school in Colorado. We moved from Denver in 2005 back to Pocatello Id. We came back to adopt our baby girl. Rylee was born on February 2nd 2006. It was a very exciting time in our lives. When Rylee was about 7 months old we took became foster parents for Gabriella to be with us. We had her in care for a year. She went home to her mom and they are doing really good now. In January of this year we got our foster care license again and we welcomed two wonderful boys into our home. Trystan is 10 and Dalyn is 1 they are a fun addition into our little family. This year has brought us many changes and many wonderful opportunities. Gary and I both started business this year. My mom and I have vinyl cutting business and Gary is leasing a truck and has a contract thru Home depot to do all of their deliveries. Life is very exciting right now and a new experience around every corner.
