Suprise!

After we moved back to Colorado, Derrick got put in the bishopric and we found out we are expecting number 6!  I was really nervous that it was going to be twins again (my body is tired) but we found out it is just 1.  I kept saying that 1 would be really easy after having twins, but I am sure that having kids this close together will be challenging.  Sawyer and Briggs will be 17 months old when we have our new baby.  I feel like this is something that we can handle without me going crazy, but do you really know you are crazy when you are?  I may already be past the crazy part.  Overall, I am feeling pretty good.  I am tired most of the time, but I think that is just part of life right now.  I feel like we are definitely being blessed a lot and am excited to see what great things are going to come!

Life is great.  Homeschool is going well.  We are learning a lot about work and working together as a family.  It is a lot of work day in and out, but I think it is paying off.  We are planning on continuing homeschool through the summer to get ahead a little bit.  I am sure that we will take some time off when the baby comes.  We found a great program here in Aurora called Options.  It allows the kids to go to school 1 day a week from 9am to 3pm.  They do music, art, P.E., language arts, and science.  They attend with only homeschooled kids and I am very impressed at the level of things they are doing in science and the fun things they are doing in the other classes.  The boys are loving it and it is nice for them to get a little "class" time with peers.

Wow! Baby #6?! Congrats! Heavenly Father obviously knows what great parents you are and wants to bless another one of his children by sending "it" to you guys! What a great family you are! 17 months apart is exactly what we've got with Hazel and Max. As everyone says, there's no doubt I've got my hands full, but there's nothing I'd rather have em full of!
