I'm Back!

Hey everybody!! So sorry for the horribly long break since my last post, my laptop cord broke about 3 months ago and i didn't have the patience to type on my iPod. :)
So anyway, I guess I'll just update whats been going on in our little corner of the world, even though things are pretty much the same as they were 4 months ago when I last posted.
Austyn is wrapping up her last month of first grade and I absolutely don't have a clue where this last year has gone. She is anxious for summer and has decided that she is going to play soccer and take dance and swimming lessons. I'm thinking that its going to be a busy summer!
Peyton turned one on April 11th and is walking all over the place, terrorizing anything that is under 3.5 feet high. He loves having "conversations", rambling on and on in his baby gibberish. He and his BFF Lilly keep my life busy, constantly fishing random things out of their mouths and saving them from all kinds of horribly near traumatic events (ex. running out of apple juice or dropping toys to the extreme depths of the trashcan.) :)
Wes is staying really busy, working a ton building his bosses house and helping another guys build his house on the side. Maybe one of these days I will be lucky enough to have his fine craftsmanship on a house of our very own :)
I am just doing good as usual, still loving running my daycare and keeping up our home. I am starting online classes the end of this month and I am so excited to get back into it again. Hopefully when Peyton starts school, I will be done with my degree and be back into the workforce. I'm so blessed to be able to stay home with the kids and I wouldn't have things any other way right now!
Okay so now that this post is starting to feel like a bad Christmas letter (not to mention a ridiculous number of smiley faces), I will sign off and try to do a better job at keeping you updated!
