Pics galore!

So, we are going through changes in just about every aspect. Last month I found out I'm losing about 10 students for the summer, which freaked me out a little. I've signed on 3 new students and have 4 more that have shown interest, but I'm praying I can fill those 10 spots! Not only were we hit there, but Scott lost his job last week. While it should freak us out, we have both been very calm about it... It has truly been a blessing for him to be out of this job! While we are diligently praying that he can find a new one quickly, we are enjoying our time together and getting a lot of things done. We've redone our front yard, we're making plans for our house (though we can't do anything until we find another job), and we're walking often :).

Here are some pics of the beginnings of our front yard:

In between the driveways used to be just a weed patch. We dug it all up, planted bushes and put bark down. It made such a huge difference!

 This used to also be a weed patch... not anymore :).

As you can see on the right side, there's a dirt patch in our grass... There are actually 2. They used to have a whole bunch of random things planted in them with rock CEMENTED in around them. I swear the guy who lived here before glued EVERYTHING! In fact, we call him Elmer. We've planted grass in these patches and it's coming up nicely.

Just another view.

On another note, Jayna is growing right before our eyes! When she woke up Sunday morning, we both turned to each other and said, "Did she just double in size?!" No joke! Just last week I could almost fit my fingers around her thighs and on Sunday I only made it about 2/3 of the way around... Incredible! Her hair is coming in like crazy and she now has 4 teeth. She's got a ton of energy and wants to be mobile, but still hasn't figured that one out... Whew! She giggles ALL the time! We love it. She's such an extrovert and goes crazy anytime she's around kids or other babies. All I have to say is that at some point I'll have to get a nicer camera because when she's happy and awake, I can't get her to stay still long enough to get a quality picture... Bluriness everywhere!

Notice her legs aren't touching the ground... She falls asleep like this all the time! It's hilarious... Talk about abs of steel!

Love these cheeks!

Loves her books!

Right after waking up... Absolutely LOVE her!!!

This is the day I swear she doubled in size!

Check out her legs in this one!

She now fits into her Easter dress from Grandma Cox (this is when we had a hard time getting a still picture)
 ...So I had to hold her

So, she can now move around in her walker and she always ends up turning away from us, but still has to see what we're up to... This is going to teach her to walk all twisted up!


  1. Your yard looks awesome! And Jayna is so stinkin' cute!!

  2. Thanks! Now if we can just keep up with the yard ;)...

  3. Your yard looks wonderful! Good job!
    Jayna really IS growing leaps and bounds! I'm not even going to know her. So cute.
