Today marks the end of the school year. We have a new administration again for next year (5 for 5 at this school). I helped hire him so I hope that means this one stays. Right...

The last month has seen Wyatt baptised, administration reviews and interviews, an overnight senior trip, talent show, a trip to Creede with students for a theatre review, multiple chiropractic appointments to help correct my hip (have I mentioned I have arthritis in my one hip?), a hit with the flu bug that I'm still feeling 2 weeks later, snow storms, sand storms and semester finals with consequential grade posting. I just have to survive graduation of the class I sponsor and the finishing of the yearbook. I'm so glad school is done for the year.

Now I can go unpack my child again...

My child really enjoys just about and diaper changes. When changing a diaper he rolls over and starts crawling away, laughing like crazy until he is caught - then he screams. When changing clothing he does the same thing. I can't wait until summer when he can just be naked...
As usual he spends as much time as possible with the cat. She just loves him as you can see:

All Grown Up

Or at least he'd like to think so!

What a little man eh?

May 1st

This is what we woke up to. Nice. Doesn't snow all winter and now we get this. It also happened to be Wyatt's baptism (finally!) - but I can't find where I moved the pictures to so I'll get to looking for those soon.

We wanted to go swimming later but it didn't pan out. Wyatt was disappointed since he got ready to go (lol).

Easter dawned bright and beautiful! Wyatt tackled his Easter basket so we put it up and Kahlua decided she was the Easter cat and now practically lives in the thing. I read somewhere that all cats over hte age of 9 have a bit of senality going on. Since she's 14 I think we may have passed that stage. This cat runs the whole household. And she's allowed!

After church we decided to go for a hike. We bought a Kelty baby carrier about a month ago and love it! Wyatt has a blast, its comfortable and has a ton of storage space. It has been well worth the money it cost (use eBay to get it MUCH cheaper than most retail stores have it discounted).

So Much!

There is so much to catch up on! I started Ringo out when the weather was nice and he's doing awesome! He takes everything in stride and has taken a saddle no problem. Promise to get pictures of this awesomeness. Maybe even on me riding him already.

Wyatt has taken after Wrigley, the burrowing dog. He has to bury himself to sleep each night:
He's growing a ton! Weighs 22.3 lbs at 8.5 months! He's in 6 to 9 month clothing, and 12 month clothing is a little large still so as far as I'm concerned he's right where he belongs.

He started crawling one week shy of 8 months and thinks he can walk now. I caught him standing in front of the fridge last week by himself while he played on a Leapfrog game we have on there. He lowered himself into a sitting position without using anything to steady himself. I think I'm in for trouble!

He also cut his first tooth this last Sunday. Finally!

And is learning all kinds of new tricks:

WOW! I was so confused...

My posts and planned post just "went away!" for awhile and I was worried I was crazy there for a bit, but everything (minus the comments that were made) are back. Maybe the comments will come back? If you commented, comment again because I didn't get to read them!!!

Not having internet sucks! I have so much to blog about! Things will be better this summer when I am working at the pool and have access to WiFi there.

I'm in Denver right now with my Seniors on their Senior Trip. We were supposed to see a Rockies game today but it was rained out and postponed until tomorrow. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will go to Elitch Gardens in the morning and catch the game in the afternoon before heading home. Otherwise we drove a long way for the kids to hang out at the mall today like they did since we didn't have any other plans. You know what they say...the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray. Name THAT author. And no, it's not Steinbeck. He borrowed it.

So I'll get a bunch of posts up to run for the next little bit and catch everyone up!

I had feathers put in my hair with my students today at the mall. I don't know if it's 'cool' everywhere else, but it's really popular out here! It's fun!
