About Us

Andy and I met on a blind date in Dec. 2005. One of my 7th grade students was his neice, and she set us up. Go figure. We saw each other every day after that! We were engaged by June and married in September of 2006. In January, 2008, we welcomed little Ethan into our home, and in August, 2010, little Addison arrived.

Andy is a diesel mechanic at Kennecott. I taught middle school science for ten years, and am now an evidence-based learning specialist for a school district.

Potty Success

Since I've been at home for a few weeks, I decided it was an excellent time to start potty training Ethan! He'd done super good. We've had a few accidents here and there, but for the most part, he lets me know he needs to go potty!

He chose his outfit this particular day. Notice the big boy underwear, and remember that he's got on a fleece pj top in July, with Buzz lightyear shoes! :) Lovely!

She better be an angel . . .

All I have to say is that this little one better be an angel when she comes for all the heck she is putting me through :)

Summer Update!

We have had a great summer so far, and have taken Ethan to do a bunch of fun things, but shame on me, I haven't taken hardly any pictures. So, here are a few to catch you up on our summer of fun.

Ethan is loving to swim this summer and we have been over the rec center countless times to let him enjoy the water. He's had a ball, and next year I will hopefully have time to put him in swimming lessons. I think he'll love them by next summer.

Last week when Andy was off, we took him to the petting zoo at Thanksgiving point, and then over to Pirate Island with Grandma and Grandpa T. It was a ball. He enjoyed the pirates, his dinner, and playing all the arcade games. Andy and Grandpa T enjoyed the arcade games as well. We couldn't pull them away from some sort of shoot 'em up game that they were interested in.

For the 4th of July Weekend we did oodles of fireworks, went to the Riverton parade and carnival, and watched the Riverton fireworks. I think Ethan had a ball. Like I said, I didn't take great pictures, but here are a few of the carnival.

Thanksgiving Point

I took Ethan and his cousin Charlotte to the Thanksgiving Point Dinosaur Museum today. They had a great time, and as an added bonus, it was the Museum's birthday, so they had all sorts of extra games and activities to do. He got a fire breathing dragon painted on his face, and they were able to go through a scavenger hunt through the museum.
