A Little Catch Up

I'm pretty behind on blogging... we have been pretty busy and not having internet for a week, it was bound to happen. 
We moved in to our new place last Saturday and we are liking it so far. I wasn't so sure first when Dustin told me that there was a bullet hole on our door, O my goodness... I can't wait till we have our own home. The place is older but it's spacious and perfect for our little family. I love our porch it's huge and I want to buy a table and chairs so we can eat out there for dinners as for now we just been drawing over it with sidewalk chalk. I also love the exterior of our apartments I love red brick with greenery everywhere, and we live right on a golf course with ponds and fountains so we are happy here even though it's not perfect.

Some little updates:

Dustin's first day teaching is tomorrow, he's pretty nervous but he will do great, He's been working really hard. This last week I didn't see him much, he was gone sun up to sun down trying to get everything ready. He substituted at the Melissa school district last year so a lot of the kids already know him, that when they saw that he was the new art teacher and the "meet the teacher" nigh they got all excited and said "It's Mr Clark!!! You're my new art teacher?" He's teaching 4th-8th so it's a pretty big range. I'm excited that we are involved with Melissa it really reminds me of my high school growing up, small town feel and they had a staff BBQ this last week and we started it with a prayer, one of the many reasons why I love Texas. I don't know if we will end up here for many years to come but I would be ok raising my kids here it's a very family, religious place.

Than Thomas is just enjoying being a typical 2 year old. He loves visiting Dustin's parents and grandparents especially now that they have a dog around. Which has been perfect since I'm one of those cruel people who don't love animals and probably will never let my kids own one, so this way Thomas gets to play and walk a dog and I don't have to take care of it. He also loves swimming, drawing, and wrestling like any typical boy.

Oliver has been keeping me busy. He gets to EVERYTHING and is always on the move. He loves cords and anything I don't want him to get into so it's been hard getting things done. He loves to eat. So far he's liked everything I have given him, but I would say watermelon has been his favorite. He also just turned 7 months this last week so I need to take some pictures.

As for me I have been busy trying to unpack AGAIN. We have moved so much since we have been married especially this year, just within a year we have moved 4 times! So I'm glad we are staying at one place for at least a year! Also I have been busy with my art class, I wish I could spend more time with my homework but life has been crazy. I have been running getting ready for my first half marathon but since we have been back in the Dallas area I haven't ran that much like once a week so hopefully once life starts settling down I can start training. Also I finally got my flute from Rexburg and started practicing again after 3 years! And boy, am I rusty but it feels good to play again. I'm planning to join the community orchestra next year after I have practiced a bit because I want to keep up with the flute. 

Anyway, a quick update and hopefully in a few days I can catch up on the blog.
