Exciting and Scarey!!!

Well here's the news: I'm going to be a third grade teacher and I'm a little nervous, ok actually WAY nervous! I got hired the day before we left on our cruise, so I have been trying to not think about it too much. After teaching Kindergarten for seven years and then teaching 8 year olds. That's a big difference!! I am very excited, just nervous about leaving my kids all day and finding a sitter!!!! Anyone up for babysitting??? lol Let me know if you are!

Assistant Teaching Job

For all of you who have not heard! I got an assistant teaching job last week at Ashman Elementary in Richfield. I am very excited! I am a little worried about leaving the boys that long. Assistants here work a lot more hours than in Cedar. I will work from 9 to 3:30 everyday. Oh well I guess! That's what I have to do to get my foot in the door! I know everyone keeps asking for pics of the house but I keep 4getting my camera down at the house. We are still living with my parents while we continue to paint, paint and paint some more, we are getting new carpet in the bedrooms on Thursday and then hopefully by next weekend we can start moving are stuff in and DECORATING! Watch for pics to come soon!

For all of you who have not heard, WE ARE MOVING! Yes, it's finally true! We are moving to MONROE, UT. Jav got a job for Christensens Arms in Gunnison UT. We are so excited. Here's how the story goes. He applied almost two months ago and then we never heard anything so we just assumed that he didn't even get an interview. Last Monday morning Jav called me at work and I could tell that his voice was different and something was wrong. He told me that John Mogle had just called him and told him that he had an interview. He had to be to Gunnison that following Friday. Scared and excited all at the same time he went to the interview and felt VERY good about it. They told him that they would let him know by Tuesday or Wednesday either way if he got the job or if he didn't. So we hoped, we prayed, we fasted and it seemed like forever. Tuesday came and went and NO phone call, Wednesday came and almost went, and then at 8:30 that night, Jav got a phone call and they wanted him to come back for ANOTHER interview on Friday morning to meet the Christensen family (the owners). I had this idea pop into my head that we should have some people that Jav has gone hunting with around the world write letters of recommendation so he started making phone calls and he was able to get a hold of 5 people to write him letters of recommendation and have two people call and talk to the President. Everything seemed to be falling into place. Jav went up again and felt AWESOME about the interview. He got along great with the owners. They told him that they would get a hold of him sometime that same day, with an answer. So he drove back here, was only home for about an hour and got a phone call that changed our lives FOREVER! We are so excited. He will be in the sales department for Christensen Arms. THank you so much for all of you that have called us and congratulated Jav! We really appreciate it! We, especaially Jav have had a really hard year, and so this has been a VERY positive and happy thing for us. We will truly miss Cedar City. Our friends (like family) have been amazing! You have made memmories with us that will last a life time. And don't forget you can come visit us whenever you want. Jav is moving next week and I am moving in three weeks as soon as school is out!

HIP, HIP, Hooray! Happy Birthday!

Krew turned one on March 24th. I can't believe it! IT seems like it was just a blink of an eye and now he's one! Where does time fly? He is such a good boy. He just walks around and smiles with his 4 front teeth. He sleeps good, (even though he drinks all night), he naps good, he lets his big brother haul him around and he loves his daddy! What would we do without him? Last weekend all of Jav's family and my entire family got together at my moms to celebrate Jaggar and KRew Bears birthday since their birthdays are so close. That's what Jag calls him "KREW BEAR", but he can't say his R's so it's soooo cute! We had such a great time bar-b-queing, opening presents and watching the boys blow out their candles! Thank you so much everyone for coming and for the FUN gifts!

Yes, he loves oranges! I know you are probably thinking oh my gosh he is going to choke but, don't worry, I watch him the whole time he sucks every last bit of juice out of the orange! I just love watching him eat it! It makes me laugh! :)

Jaggar and Krew's newest most favorite thing is..... being pulled by me in the WAGON!!!

Krew absolutely loves things that open and shut like cupboards, drawers, doors and especially cell phones. He opens the door and watches his brother outside and gets soooo excited. He just wants to go out there and be with him soooo bad! It is so cute to watch!
