Quick Update.

So I have been planning on updating our blog forever and then I realized that I pretty much just have pictures on my camera of school stuff (only I care about this and I don't feel comfortable posting pictures of my kids on here) so no new pictures sorry. I can tell you what we are up to though:

AE: Really busy with working full time and going to school. He recently got accepted into the upper divison Business program at the U and has officially set a graduation date for the summer of 2011. He also got a new work schedule that makes going to school SO much easier! We are both thankful for this.
As some of you may know, Ciliac disease runs rapid in AE's family and if you don't have it you most likely carry the gene. Ciliac disease is when you are allergic to gluten (which means he can't eat any wheat), rye, barley and malt (correct me if I am wrong Lexi). AE has been thinking that he is allergic for awhile now and finally decided to go on the diet(no eating of any of the things listed above ever again) because he was sick all of the time. This is his third week now on the diet and feels SO much better. He is upset and hates that he can't eat some of his favorite foods anymore but would much rather feel better. Gluten free food is expensive but worth it in the end.

Me: I am really busy student teaching Monday - Friday and working at the Jewelery store on Saturdays. I have no time to do anything else it feels like. I love what I do and I can't wait to have my own classroom in a few short months!

Us: We are enjoying spending time together and we love having a calling in church together as Primary teachers. We teach the 7 and 8 year olds and really enjoy teaching them new things.

Overall our lives are going great and we can't wait for them to slow down in a few months. One thing I am really looking forward to this coming year - Never having to work summers EVER again!

I hope everyone is doing great and I promise to update as soon as our lives get more exciting!

Oh I'm so sad for AE that he has to deal with that. At least you guys know what was making him so sick. I think its awesome that you are enjoying student teaching so much! I'm envious of teachers for their long summer off! That's so cool! Do you have a teaching job for the fall yet?

AE has Celiac?!? That is crazy talk. At least he has A LOT of family members that can relate with him. It's hard to give up foods you love...

PS. When are you rescheduling your trip to Arizona for? I'm ready for you whenever! Weather is still awesome here.
