It's been forever I know

I was told by my dad the other day that it has been forever since I have updated my blog.  He is right.  A lot has happened since the last time I wrote on here.  I will update you on the big things that have happened in the last year and a half.  Where to begin....

First, on July 7, 2011 I became an aunt for the first time.  Matt and Natalie had a beautiful baby boy Maxwell Oscar Spring.  He was 9 pounds 10oz.  I am just so in love with this little boy.  He makes me smile every time I see him.  Matt and Natalie moved to St. George in October so I don't get to see him as much but when I do it fills my heart up with more and more love for him.

Now Max is getting so big.  Wow how the time flies.  This is Max at about 6 months.

Awww he wasn't very happy in this one.

Now Max is almost a year old.  I can't believe that time has gone by so fast!

The next big event that happened in our family was that Kim and Kyle told us in December that they were expecting a little one.  I was so happy that I was going to become an aunt again to another bundle of joy.
This was the first picture of Kim and Kyle's little peanut.
Look how big the little peanut is getting!!
This was the most recent picture of Kim and Kyle's little girl!!!

These are just a few pics of Kim and her cute belly!!!
You can't even tell that she has a baby bump!

This was her at 28 weeks!! Super cute!

This is a sneak peak of her maternity pictures.  I can't wait to see the rest!

Now about me and what has been going on.  In January I foreclosed on my condo and moved in with Kim and Kyle. This has been the best blessing for me.  I have been able to save money for the months to come where I will be unemployed.  Also, it has been a blast hanging out with Kim and Kyle.  I hope they feel the same way.  I am so glad that I am living here so that I will be able to be a part of "Baby Millett's" everyday life.  She is going to be one spoiled little girl!! Also, I hope that I can be of some help to Kim and Kyle while they gt use to have a little bundle of joy around the house.

Her is what is going on with my schooling.  Well, this year I finished up my PRE- student teaching in a kindergarten class.  This was nice because I was able to do this in my classroom while I worked.  I will not be that lucky with student teaching.  I had to put in for a leave of absence starting on August 27th.  This is the first day of my student teaching.  Scary and exciting all in one.  I can't believe that it has taken me this long to finish up my degree but it will be so nice to be done.

Last week I started summer break.  This was exciting and scary also.  It was exciting because I was working with a hard group of kids for the last half of the school year.  When I started out this school year I was in the special education Pre- kinder class at Clyde Cox.  In January I had to go my pre student teaching and it had to be in Kindergarten so they moved me into the special education kindergarten.  I stayed in there for the rest of the year. The students in this kindergarten class were very difficult.  I would like to think that I have quite a bit of patience but not with these kids.  We had hitting, destroying the classroom, throwing tables and desks, and using inappropriate words towards other students and teachers.  So yes it was hard to get up and go to work for awhile but I had a great team that I worked.  We were all counting down the days until summer so that we could get a break.

Summer also started the 7 month stretch of not being employed. This scares me to death.  If you know me well I have always had a job.  I started working at the age of 16 and the only other time I took a break from working was when I went to college at Dixie State in Utah.  At one point I was working 3 jobs, so having all of this downtime in the summer makes me a little uneasy.  BUT.....  Thanks to my dad and UMC I might be able to get a job working in their gift shop for a few hours a day!!!  YAY!! Thanks dad for everything that you do for me!! YOU ROCK!!!!

This first week of summer has been great because my parents are housesitting for a friend of theirs.  Well, they have a pool!!! So we have been able to take advantage of having some pool time this summer.  I have really enjoyed working on my tan.  Well, the first day I wasn't so smart and I didn't put on sunscreen.  BAD IDEA!!!  I got super burnt, but I got smart and have put on sunscreen everyday since.  Spending days at the pool really makes you wish that you had one to hang out in all the time.  I love being in the sun and splashing around in the water and spending time with family.

Kyle soaking up those raises!!!
Summer has just begun and it is going to be a very eventful summer.  We have Max's first birthday, the birth of Kim and Kyle's little girl and then back to school in August. I will do my best to keep my blog updated with all of the happy events.
