I knew I wouldn't keep up with this as much as I thought I would, but things are changing and so I will try to at least jump on here once a week or so.....
We have decided to put Maverick (my baby boy) in Pre-K 3 in August. Yep my little boy is gonng start school ! I am getting all the paperwork tomorrow to fill out and get him registered. I"m so nervous but know it'll pay off in the long run as it has with Kylie. He does the day care thing 2 days a week and isn't learning anything so we figure if we're gonna pay the money let's put him in a private school where they start them off young, 5 days a week, full curriculum, interactions with other children, & learning learning learning. Mixed emotions !
This summer will be our most fun filled summer since the kids are older and can actually remember things and learn from our travels. We will be driving 1,500 miles to Colorado Springs and spending time with great family in the mountains. Then off to New Mexico to stay with amazing cousins and see Indian land & more history + shopping.
Our plans include but are not limited to:
- Pikes Peak, snow and mountain tops are just fascinating & the kiddos are so excited
- Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, love the sport and love the history. Alll wrapped into one
- Royal Gorge, the kids love trains and we love the scenery of mountains and rapids, should be great
- Canon City to see the history of the town
- Albuquerque and it's gorgeousness & great people, not to mention the "Road Kill Cafe" if it's still open
- White Sands, enough said there
- The Billy the Kid Museum because it's one of our fave movies & so much history (been there before)
- Huenco Tanks on our way back into Texas, to climb the huge boulders
there are so many other places we will visit but this is just a few main things we'll be wrapped up in !
Kylie is doing so well in school, she amazes me daily ! She has the whole drama queen act down and plays into it quite often though, let's just say she's already acting like a teen and she's only 5. She is learning to read more and more everyday. Yesterday she brought home a short story and read it to me with little mess ups. Can't beleive she is about to be 6 in June ! Wow
I have begun the surrogacy process ! A good friend of mine came to me 2+ years ago and asked me if I'd be interested in being a surrogate for her and her new hubby. I had a million mixed emotions at the time but it had been something I'd been interested in for some time. I had two amazing babies why not help give that to someone else ? So for 2 years I thought about it off & on, until she brought it up again. At this point I got excited and began researching the process and readying myself for it all. My husband was very supportive "Do what you want to do babe, it's your body" is what he told me. He didn't think it would envolve him so much, ha little did he know. We have done blood test, he is scheduled for his this week, I've started pills to ready my body for an assisted reproduction. I am officially the Gestational Carrier for two great people !
I have yet to talk about this to my children and keep wondering when is the perfect time to let them in on the deal. Implantation should be at the end of February so I'm guessing that's when we'll sit and explain this miracle to them.
We will be getting a new roof and siding on our house ! While we are renting it out to a friend, this work will be done and complete when we do move back in. We are so excited to be getting this done, Thank you storm that messed up our roof, without your help this wouldn't be happening !
My Psych 2314 class has started and our first paper is due this week ! No I'm not ready for it but it has to be done so we can be that much closer to our final goal !
LIFE AS I KNOW IT.... HAS BEEN CRAZY LATELY, BUT IT'S WHAT I WANTED & I LOVE IT
