thank heavens for...

PRESCHOOL!!!!! Yes, both of my boys are in school together and I am loving my 6 hours of freedom every week. I can get all of my grocery shopping done, go out to lunch, do yoga, maybe a singing class, all without kids. Shane has a perma-grin when I pick him up from school, and Dax is very protective of Shane and helps him to and from class.

Yet another injury by Shane. He is the accident professional. While wearing his helmet, he did a face plant off of his scooter. Oh, and it also happened to be just two weeks after his skull fracture. This picture was taken fresh after the accident. Once the scab formed it looked much worse, it was huge and dark. It recently came off in one piece and was an inch in diameter. yuck.
Another picture if the house. These are the curtains I made from fabric that I got in LA. For any of you who like to sew, the fabric district in Los Angeles is a must. The fabric is usually 75% off retail value. I was in heaven.

So they are gone... Two years of pictures, GONZO! Brads internal components from his computer literally blew up and we only had a hundred of our favorite pictures backed up. Yes, we were idiots and didn't back-up all of our files, so please learn from our mistakes. I found out about this a couple of weeks ago and I am still so angry and sad. If any of you have pictures of my children send them my way please!

For our update, Dax just started gymnastics and is the only boy in his class. He is stoked because he loves to show off to a crowd, especially a crowd of girls. During his first lesson his teacher wanted the class to practice jumping on the spring board and then land on a dot placed on the mat. In true Daxon fashion, when his turn came up he bolted down the runway, jumped on the spring board and did a front flip onto the mat. No, he didn't land it but it still looked pretty cool, but don't tell him I said that because it would contradict our little chat we had following his lesson. I had to give him an 'always listen to what your coach says' discussion, and somehow try not to laugh during it. Oh, and just in case you are wondering how in the heck I talked Brad into letting Dax take gymnastics... I told him that it will be great for Dax to learn how to correctly flip around so he can better prepare for the X-games freestyle skiing. Seriously.
