High or Hi

Today the girls were playing high five with daddy. Megan watched Daddy and Alexis play a few times and then he turned to her. When they got to "up high" she waved to him instead. It was really cute. The simple things that we don't think about.

Megan is a serious climber, if it is wide enough for her body she will try and scale it. She loves to play with the toilet paper(so if you come over and it is in a pile on the back of the toilet you know why) and she is so quick about it.

Britt is going to Alaska on Monday for work. I tell ya 1 month of unemployment is a huge stress, but we have grown as a couple and a family. I wouldn't want to go through it again, but I am grateful for this time that we have had together. We had planned on him taking a month of next summer because he was going to have 3 weeks vacation, so I guess we just got blessed with it early. We are going to miss him like crazy and are doing all we can to save up so that the girls and I can join him as soon as possible. We are planning on flying him home every 6 weeks or so. I am so torn between moving. It will be really fun to live somewhere new and at the same time scary. It also is sad to leave family, my girls have such a special relationship with my parents. They get the privilege of seeing them multiple times a week, going to church with them and just having a very close bond. I was moved from my grandparents when I was 11 and still to this day miss being with them(they are all in Heaven now). We will have to make really good and sure that we come back often so that they still get that grandparent time!

Alexis had a hard time sleeping last night she said because she was thinking about what school will be like. Sweet girl, I hope that she doesn't stress about it too much. She knows where her school is and even where her class will be, where she gets a lunch and the library. They do a free lunch at her school and I plan to take her over there a few more times before school starts so that she gets more familiar with the school.

2 lil' notes:

Anticipation for something like school can be hard.

Good luck with the job situation.

The girls are lucky to have their grandparents so close! Your parents are just going to have to start saving and vacations won't be in Mexico anymore but in Alaska! lol :-)
