Update

So its been a while.We are officially in Spokane!!! Yeah. It has been lots of fun. I haven't taken any pictures yet because we have been pretty busy. Bryce started school on the 21st of September and is doing pretty good. He has 4 classes. American Sign Language (harder then he thought but is doing good), First Aide(probably his easiest) and Biology and Biology Lab (this is his hardest). Biology is kicking his butt. He has a hard time with the way the teacher is teaching. He already thinks he is going to have to take it over again. I have been trying to be encouraging but it not helping like I thought it would.

I haven't been working full time. The schedule that I first had at KinderCare wasn't working plus we don't qualify for day care assistance because Bryce is not working. He is going to school but he is not in a program(yet) that he can get a job right away. The state doesn't count school if you are just getting your associates. You have to be in something that will get you a job right away, and get a degree in something than generals. So until Bryce gets a job, we don't get state aid. Plus KinderCare is not paying me has much I thought it would. I found a call center job that will pay me $.75 more. I have applied to a lot more places, one a dental assistant job that I really would like. I went to WorkSource and applied for it but they didn't give me a number to follow up with, just the dentists name. So I need to find the place hopefully.

Anyway, the kids are doing great. Zoey loves her new house. Anytime we come back home from the store or anything, Zoey says something about her "New" house. She loves having her big girl room and big girl bed. We took Bryce's old bed that his parents had in the extra bedroom. She loves it. Ben is getting bigger and I think he is ready for rice cereal. He loves to sit up, makes high pitch noises when he talks, thought he was going to roll over because he liked to roll over to his side and hang out, but he doesn't do that anymore. Gunner came up a couple weeks after we moved. We had to save up a little bit more money to pay for the pet deposit. He had to have eye surgery again. He had cherry eye(which is when is tear gland swells up and comes out of place). So he had the white collar on to keep him from itching his eye. He likes the new house I think but he can't go up or down the stairs. They are pretty steep but he is kind of a wimp. We have lots of stray kitties that he has run into but they are not intimidated by him at all. It's funny to watch him try to be tough.

Anyway, I will post pictures of the new house and of the kids when I get them. Hope everyone is doing great!!

Ben is already almost 5 months old? What? Thats crazy! Glad you guys are doing well, I'm sure having your own place is wonderful! Tell Bryce good luck with school!

Hi! Spokane, huh? We're in Moscow, ID. Just 90 mins south. The next time we head up there I'll contact you and maybe we can visit a bit. I'd love to see your kids.
