Why I Need Eyes in the Back of My Head

I've recently obtained my Real Estate License in Idaho and have been hitting the ground running with clients, both buyers and sellers alike. It's been fun getting to know my clients, seeing homes, and learning the ins and outs of real estate. It's also nice because it's something that I can do from my home a lot of the time, which means more time with my kids. It does mean that sometimes Mommy has to work while the kids are entertaining themselves. Grant has hung out by my side while I have worked since he was 6 weeks old, we've always gotten along fairly well. The other day I was at the computer getting some work done and he was playing quietly on the floor behind me. Suddenly I could hear beep, beeeep, beep, coming from the printer. I turn around and my little boy, who barely started to walk one month ago has climbed up on not just one but two boxes and is pressing buttons as fast as he can. He was so proud of himself. I was very surprised, how can a kid go from not walking to scaling boxes in a matter of weeks?
Please do not let the fact that I do not have eyes in the back of my head reach my little girls ears, I'd really be in trouble if they figured that out!

Trashin' the Camp

Our ward talent show was this last Friday night. It was seriously good, we have some very talented people in our ward, as well as some funny ones. Ella loved watching the show, her favorite part was the "Runway Show" that some of the sisters from the Relief Society did, we have a little fashionista on our hands.
Ella giving everyone a little pre-show talent.

Paislee danced on the stage with a large group of 6-8 year old girls to "Trashin' the Camp" from Tarzan. A sister in our ward volunteered to choreograph a number and teach it to these kids. They rehearsed twice a week for a 5 week period, amazing dedication on her part. Sister Merrill also danced later that night and is truly talented.

During the practices at home Paislee always danced and watched her toes at the same time. I reminded her to look at the audience and smile before we left the house and she did! I don't think she looked at her toes once. We're going to have to get her into some dances classes this fall, she really loved the whole experience.
