Xanadu

So we have been here for almost a month and we have been so busy!! It seems like we have plans every night, but I guess that is good so I'm not so bored while Brien is at school or studying. Last night the school rented out the skating rink so the students and families could go rollerskating and since Avery and Ian kept putting on my skates and would try to skate inside the house we thought we would go. And they loved it. Of course Ian couldn't stand up on the skates so we held him as we went around the ring. At first he would let you hold him up with his legs on the ground but he liked it better when you picked him up because you could go faster. As for Avery, miss independent, she had to do it all by herself. That is until her feet started to hurt then we had to skate around holding her too. Good thing Brien can skate well, he did most of the holding. That was until Jeff came. One of Brien's friends that the kids JUST LOVE. He told us he wants to babysit for us. I think we will take him up on that. Here are some pics of our night.


Other then late night skating we have been staying busy. Brien is of course at school and studying most of the time, but we do see him around 6 and have him most every evening so it has not been that bad. As for me a couple of the girls get together and work out in the mornings. That has been really good because It gets me up and moving and the kids get to play with their friends. We all take one day out of the week to babysit, so it works out great. Then there is a play group, scrapbooking night, and dance classes that keep me busy too. Avery will be starting preschool on Tuesday and she is so excited, a lot of her friends will be in her class. Then in like a week she will start ballet and tap so that should be fun. Other then that it has been going well. I will try to remember my camera more so I can keep you up to date.
