Grease Monkeys

Thatcher has shown the most apptitude to grow up to be just like Daddy. He loves cars and speed and getting greasy. Ian was just in it for the fun. However, these pictures incriminate those two boys for losing an important part to a tool that Rhett rented from AutoZone to change some break pads and we had to pay $50 to replace it. We looked everywhere in the yard for the part, we even had a family prayer, but never found it. Oh well, I'm sure it will turn up some day.

First Day of Preschool

Ian started preschool and LOVES it. He is so excited about preschool that he wakes up gets ready to go even before he has had breakfast. They read the Little Red Hen and then baked their own bread (I wish I had taken a picture). He was so proud of his little loaf of bread. Then they read Little Red Riding Hood and took some bread to a grandma's house. He thought that was so fun because the grandma invited them in and gave them cookies. Next week is the story of The Gingerbread Man, I wonder what they'll do!!


My short lived and pathetic attempt at blogging is very much on hold for now as I am too busy trying to be Mommy to 4 kids and Police Cadet at night. Yes,it comes as a shock to many, I want to be a Police Officer for BYU. So far (2 weeks) I like it and it is really, really hard. I run a mile and a half every day (hopefully in under 14 min.)and I do 25 push-ups (no stopping) and 30+ sit-ups (in one minute) and hopefully I can jump 17.5 inches higher than my reach (I run around the house jumping all day). I'm getting lots of support from my kids and Rhett is still warming up to the idea. There are 32 "boys" and 3 other women in the UVU Police Academy. Those boys almost broke my wrists off in defense tactics the other night, but I let experience the Mommy death grip, and they learned not to underestimate women. I just scored a 96% on my first criminal law test and I was pleasantly surprised that my brain still works. Well, it's a new adventure for me and I am just excited to be out of the house (like a caged bird set free). Tomorrow I have another 8 hours of Criminal Law. YEA! NOT.
