The Black Fairy

We loved Vedauwoo's Halloween costume!

Friends in Ohio

We moved into a ward where each of the kids have 6-10 kids their age to do things with which is incredible. They have had instant friends. We have loved one family especially - they are the ones that hooked us up with all the right people to be able to move to Centerville. Kenzi and her 2 friends are here bathing the dog in my bathtub. Okay, that was a big mistake! I had hair 2 feet up the wall in the entire bathroom. I'm really not liking the indoor dog thing! Boyce and I have so many friends here because everyone is overly friendly. We have 10 doctors in our ward now, and 7 of them are residents or barely attendings, so they totally understand the family life of a resident - little money and little time to do anything with family and a butt-load of student loans - uggh! We basically have a resident wife support group which includes working out, volleyball, or lunch! (I tend to do be doing more eating out than working out though.)

First Day of School

This was a scary day for the school, new state, new everything. It's hard to be the new kid, but they have adjusted well. The kids have been really nice here, so they have all had plenty of friends to do things with. We have been very happy about our neighborhood because there are several kids the same age. Kenzi has a little girl across the street in the same grade, and they are so much alike. (They both are a little strange haha) It's nice that she has a bus buddy. I didn't have to work the first day, so I worked out, went to lunch with a friend, and then went shopping! I haven't had the kids at school and me at home ever, so I celebrated! It was really strange not starting the school year with a classroom though. It's a lot less stressful when all you are worrying about is your own kids! Kenzi (2nd), Davin (6th), Kaid (8th), Bryce (11th) Can you believe how old they are? I'm not ready for Bryce to be leaving for college!
