That being said we headed down through California. I don't like California nor do I appreciate California drivers. Enough said. When we got to Arizona we were able to spend a couple of days with my Grandpa and Grandma Franklin and my Great Grandpa and Grandma Liddle. I love that they got to see all the kids and meet Justin. New Mexico was gorgeous to drive through and Texas was pretty decent. Oklahoma and Arkansas are two places I don't care to drive through again. It was such a great sight to see the Welcome to Tennessee sign.
Our home was bigger than we expected and our front and back yards are huge. The boy's schools are great and we love the town. Justin was blessed with finding a job right away and he's been busy ever since. Nic and Jaime moved here a month or so before us with her parents and they happen to live right down the road. It's really nice having them so close. Another great thing is they are expecting a baby boy in August! So exciting! Oh and Trent graduated from kindergarten!
School is out for the summer and now the fun begins. Camping, fishing, swimming, lots of library time, a new nephew, and my parents coming to visit and possibly my grandparents. Oh and did I mention I'm supposed to be getting married and my 7 soon-to-be step kids are spending the summer with us. Plus over here school starts on August 6th. Yeah that's how we role. Busy, busy, busy!!!
Before the pictures here are a few funnies from the kids:
Kris- Who made stop lights turn green?
Trent- God did. He turns them green so mommy can get home to make daddy dinner.
Kris- Mom I have an owie on my little foot?
Me- Where? I don't see it
Kris- Right there on my little foot. (pointing at his little toe)
Me- You mean your little toe?
Kris- (thinking) I guess is can be a toe
Kris- ( after putting a pair of socks on) I'm a genius
Trent, Kris and Marley chose to have huge temper tantrums after I told them to go to bed one night. Jakob heard their crying and screaming and came out of his room to investigate. Upon seeing them all throwing a fit he walked over in front of them, started shaking his finger at them and yelling really loud. They all immediately stopped, got their jammies on and went to bed. :)
Trent was the only student in his class to spend all day crying because school was out for the summer. He made his teacher cry several times because she felt so bad.
