Random Happenings

Ok, so blogging hasn't been on my list of things to do lately. My list is just too dang big and updating our family happenings is on the bottom of the list. The kids are napping and I have no desire to do anything at the moment so here I am. I have been horrible at taking pictures lately. So my goal since the holidays are right around the corner is to be better.

Me and Chase have started school this semester. Yes, me too!! Chase is at ASU finishing up his pre med stuff. He takes the MCAT this summer and we start the application process. Crazy it takes a whole year to do. But I'm excited that this chapter in our life is finally coming to a close. Next chapter.... MEDICAL SCHOOL!!!!
We had a goal of staying driving range of no more than 14 hrs away from Mesa, AZ so that we can be close to family. So that really help narrow down the massive list of schools we had to filter threw. We have a good count of 10 schools right now from California to Nebraska to Texas. Our obvious first choice is to stay here in good ol' Arizona. U of A has a Phoenix campus and a Tucson campus.... ugh.... We would like to get into the Phx campus so we don't have to move but we will suck it up and go to Tucson if need be. I'm dreading Tucson because it is seriously such an ugly place. :( I know I'm mean but really... ask yourself would you move there?! Really? Anyways you can't beat the great tuition price we would get if we stayed in-state, and less debt is a big plus! We haven't really decided on a second choice yet. We like Loma Linda, CA; Aurora, CO and Omaha, NE. I know, really.... Nebraska. Well the reason behind that one is they have a campus here in AZ so for two years we would live in NE and then move back to AZ for his 2 clinical years. But that's a lot of moving too. So who knows where we will end up. All I know is we will eventually have to move. Because when he does his residency there are no options in AZ and not a lot of openings anywhere else. So we won't get a much of a choice. We'll gladly take anything.
Then there's my school. Good ol' MCC. I'm learning how to become a professional seamstress. I'm only able to take a couple classes since Chase is in school full-time. But I really love my classes. I seriously love sewing and constructing clothes. I've been told I have a real talent for it and it's something I could do from home. So I'm super excited to learn more about it. My classes are so stinkin' easy I'm annoyed I didn't do this sooner. I'm just so excited about it though!! My great grandma was an amazing seamstress and I feel honored to have gotten some of her talent and put it to good use. Any one ever want to learn some basic sewing let me know I can help you get started it's so fun!!
Then there's the pregnancy. Let's see.... I was shocked about this one. We didn't expect it this soon. And it's the worst timing too. But we will manage. I'm due April 26th right at Chase's finals and I won't be able to go to school next semester because I'll miss the whole last weeks of school. So that's a bummer but other than that we are super excited to have another adorable munchkin running around to had to our craziness. I love being a mom! Seriously it's so fun. We are such a circus and life seems ridiculous at times but we have fun.

And proof of our crazies is this little girl. She is seriously a handful. She can destroy my house in no time flat all by herself. She causes more destruction than the rest of us all together. 
But really she is the cutest thing ever. Both of them are. They have such great lil' imaginations. Like, Claire the other day told me some wild story about a monster and a spider, and they bit her butt so she ate them and then spit them out and gave them back and shared them with the nice monster. Weirdo.
Oh no worries Kael tells some awesome stories too. I love listening to them play pretend. 

My kids are goofy. Just like mom and dad. But we have fun together and we love each other (most of the time). 

Well the kids are awake time to get back to damage control.
