Summer Continues Even When School's Almost In!! :(









I never imagined that I would be freaked out about the boys starting school again...but I am NOT excited! Its giving me anxiety like no one's business! lol Its weird cause I have always just been so excited for them to be in elementary cause it was my fav! I made some of my bestest friends there. But it also means that 2 out of our 3 kids is in school full-time! So freakin weird. And Summer has been so much fun, and we are just NOT ready for it to end. But the truth is we still have some summer adventures left and I am sure when Mondays over this anxiety will begin to go away...or at least I hope. Dominik wasn't thrilled about summer pre-school either...so we are hoping watching both brothers leaving everyday will bring back his want to go to school!

Last week we had a couple of our best friends in town to visit and for their anniversary. Just like with everytime we see them it was a blast! Except they got to see Utah instead of us being in another country or with them in Ohio. And as much as I could put into the 4 days they were here, we did. We went to Wendover, Boating, downtown, and they even spent 3 days in Park City for their actual anniversary. One of the days Val insisted on us going to see Chelsea Handler and I am glad we went, it was a lot of fun! And she was hilarious. It really was a great week and I can't wait till we're able to hang out with them again.

Austin turns 32 next Friday!! And he doesn't want to make any plans. He is the BIGGEST home body I have ever known. lol He did the same thing on Fathers day. But what can you say when its their birthday right?

The only other up-date for now is that my brother Cheyo and his wife Heidi are having a girl. They are planning on naming her Stephanie and she is due in November. Just like with Kai...I cannot wait. At least this time I know what the sex of the baby is! lol

Summer

The boys are having a blast with their summer. We are trying to make it as fun as possible for them. Lots of swimming, zoo, and days at the park. :) The older boys are enjoying the no school but Collin cannot wait to "eat lunch at school". lol Dominik is funny with pre-school. He leaves crying everyday cause he says he doesn't want to go, only to come home saying "Mommy I had so much fun!!!" haha I posted the video of Dom's first time swimming alone, with his floaties of course.
And I am happy to report that Eclipse sooooo kicks the other Twilight movies butt! I think I am going to have to watch that in the theater a few more times.

Talk about 180's...lol

Where to start with everything... well sugar coating it won't help so her a goes... (: Jamo's ended up being too much. It just wasn't worth it in the end. It was hard to leave because I left a lot of people I didn't want to. Including the best cousins. But I needed to come back home. It was rocky at first because it meant rearranging a lot of things with my daycare, but it really was for the best. Coming back made make hard decisions that I should have made and faced a long time ago! One things for sure, I missed my boys and daycare kids SOOOO much! We are having so much fun and learning different things everyday! I don't think I could be happier with how things are going with it.

My boys are out of school and LOVING the later bed time. They think they are so cool! haha Dominik however started summer pre-school this week and also thinks he's the coolest! But who we kidding, they are! lol :) I have been making them read or practice different flash cards for at least an hour a day. They hated the idea at first, but they are starting to come around. Jesse is SUCH a good reader and we are just trying to play on that as much as possible. Collin rocks at Math, so letting them have fun with what they are good at and trying to get them to work on what they are not is the challenge. Overall though I am going to try and give them a fun summer.

My brother Bobby's baby was born on Tuesday! It was a girl, Kai Nicole Baena. 5lbs, 6oz and 18 inches long! She is beautiful! I will post pics when I can. My bestie Heather J got married on May 29th, and my brother Cheyo and his wife are expecting as well! Babies and marriages all over the place it seems. :)

So there have been lots of little changes going on, but we're loving life and getting through the tuff stuff best we can. I will write more when I have more up-dates! I can say one more thing....I AM SOOOO EXCITED FOR ECLIPSE IN 19 DAYS!!! lol Don't judge me. :)

New Jobs, and Fivas Life! :)

Well the kids are doing great! I don't see them much with this new job of mine but they are both doing great in school! Dominik is done with speech therapy and is potty training! He is being stubborn like the Fivas he is, lol. But, he is getting it down slowly but surely. Austin and I have been dieting trying to loose some extra pounds and it has been hilarious to watch how long we're able to stick to our 11 day diet...we usually make it to day 9 or 10...but this last round was only day 8! :) We're horrible. We are on round two for this year...hoping to do better! Neither of us have much to loose, but we want to stay on top of it. I am huge freak about staying healthy. I try not to be but I can't help it. I mean one of my FAVORITE shows is the BIGGEST LOSER and I watch it religiously. If you haven't watched it, you should!! Its the BEST! Austin and I still have had no luck with getting pregnant either. The doctors think I might have endometriosis and that might be the key factor. But I am trying to get this job thing under control before I go doing all those tests and doctor visits!

So the job thing that I keep getting questions about, here's the scoop. My daycare is still being ran out of my house by Gentry and my mom. I still buy the groceries, and do the money books. I try to fill in when I can, but its not very often. I no longer work at Wise Guys either. What is my new job?? Well my uncle James opened a pizzeria/Italian food restaurant called "Jamo's" and asked me to be his manager. It is one of the hardest jobs I have ever had. My uncle warned me he would be hard to work for, and he was NOT lying! But its worth it. I get to see a lot of my family on a daily basis and for the most part it is a fun job too! A lot goes in to it and I haven't got it all down yet, but I am trying. The catch is that it is in Stansbury Park so its 30 min away. However if you think about it, most people are in their cars commuting 30 min just in traffic right? lol. They are going to open another one in Saratoga Springs sometime in the near future, I am not sure if I will have much a part in that one or not. We shall see. I know with this job I feel like I work A LOT more cause I am never home. Thank goodness for Mom and Austin! I couldn't do it without their help and support!

So I guess that's all of it for now. up coming...we are going to celebrate Dominik's 3rd birthday! As well as my grandma's, mom's, brother Chris's, my nephew Ashton's, sister Tasha's and MINE!!! WHEW!!! RIGHT??? lol And I have a couple friends with birthdays that month too!!! Craziness. And as if that's not all enough...Austin and I will be going to spend my birthday with my best friend Valarie in Ohio for 5 days. I am so excited, I can't stand it. We also have a TON of babies on the way around us!! Robin's will be first, and she isn't finding out the sex so that will be fun to find out in Mid March too! My brother Bobby is expecting his second and isn't finding out the sex either. With him they are just weird to me tho. Robin's got one of each already, he doesn't...What do I know tho? I am excited for the addition either way!! :)
