Seriously!!! As a first time mom with a toddler, I have no idea how to keep either of us entertained when it is so cold and ugly outside. Any suggestions? I can only do so much baking and cleaning, and then its done! Then what do we do?
Right now I'm in a rutt. We are watching WAY TOO MUCH TV. It's terrible. Probably 3 or 4 hours worth a day. ( Which is a lot for us.) It's one thing if its cold outside and we can throw on coats and gloves and play outside. But it's another when it's cold, windy, and threatening to rain/snow any minute. Ahhhhhh!!!!
So, please leave a comment with any suggestions. And if you would like to have an indoor play date, please let me know. Cuz we would LOVE to!

We were just cresting onto the top of a big hill, 400 N., in Logan. Off to the right was one more lane, and a big cliff that drops a long ways down to the houses below. To the left uf us was a middle lane, two lanes going west, and 1000 East. We were going the speed limit, 45 mph, and Ty and I both saw an old Nissan Sentra crossing the 5 lanes and headed toward a small parking lot to our right. I screamed, Bris screamed, Ty yelled. Ty swirved to the right but then straightened back out because of the cliffside and BAM! She ran right into the front left side of the truck. She didn't even slow down or break. She literally didn't see us. (Still don't know why.) We checked Bris out, then checked ourselved out. Ty called 911 and I got out to check the other girl. Her car had spun so it was facing the same direction as ours and was pinned against our truck. She was in complete shock and really upset, but physically ok.
Her car-TOTALLED- our car-UNDRIVEABLE-
So, two tow trucks, 4 cop cars, and my long visit to the ER to check my belly out later, we are all fine. A little sore, but feeling really blessed that it wasn't any worse. That was our day. It's amazing how it happens so fast, and once again you are reminded how precious life is.
The whole front of the truck had shifted. The hood wouldn't fit right, and it was difficult to open the driver side door. Crazy.

Yes, we were living in a hotel. Yes, it was raining. But we still had a fun time! In downtown Nanaimo we watched the flag parade and bought some treats! Don't ask me the history behind Canada Day, because I have no idea. But it was a great excuse to get out and have a good time. (Especially knowing that the 4th of July would be spent moving and not quite celebrating.)
Victoria: Welcome to Victoria! It is beautiful here! The week we moved had to have been record breaking temperatures. We have no AC, and it was hot outside which only meant eating cold treats and playing in the water. We are pretty good at that!

With the approval of the School of Graduate Studies, the Accounting is pleased to inform you that your application has been approved and you have been accepted to begin graduate study at Utah State University. You are to be congratulated for your achievement.
Your acceptance details are as follows:
Starting Term: Fall 2010 Advisor: Richard Jenson
Department: Accounting Program: Accounting Degree: MAcc
That's right! USU here we come! If you haven't heard, it's been quite the stressful process. Back in the spring TyRell took the GMAT. You have to get a certain score to even be looked at by USU, and he missed it by 2 points. Ty had been told by the accounting advisor that he shouldn't even apply because they won't even look at you unless you get that test score right. However, I encouraged Ty to apply anyway because he had already graduated from USU with an above average GPA. His GPA was also well above that of the mini mun requirement. So he did. We have been waiting...and waiting all summer to hear from USU and it just hadn't happened. Last night we were talking and both really worried about where we were going to go. We knew it was decision time, but we just didn't want to make that decision without knowing his fate with USU. So today he called, and the gal told him that his acceptance letter had just been sent. He called me, I cried, but he still made me open his e-mail because he couldn't believe it! We are so excited to be going back to Logan. We would have LOVED to be closer to family at either one of the other schools we were considering and are so grateful for the family members supporting us, but USU's program is just right for TyRell. We are so blessed. We couldn't be more grateful right now! Utah State hey Aggies all the way!
