Very Grateful

Living here in Idaho hasn't been a hard adjustment for us.  But one thing that really gets to me is being away from our son's gravesite.  There are times when I just want to go and check it out and make sure it's clean and maybe place a few flowers around it every once in awhile.  Today I was checking my email and Brady's Aunt Lynell and both Grandparents had thought about him this past weekend. Here are some pictures she sent us....
I am so grateful to have family in Michigan that is able to visit his gravesite and place flowers there like I wish I could. I am anxious for our upcoming visit to Michigan to FINALLY see his headstone for the first time and place flowers of our own.

Mother's Day

Well, Mother's Day was pretty sad this year. The weather was beautiful and it was a great weekend, but I didn't get to see my own mother and I of course it made me think of our son.  It was a pretty rough day and I do not like being so far away from my Mom! I miss her like crazy and I am always sad after talking to her. But besides the sadness, Brady and I took Missy to the park and had a little picnic! It was a short trip but we had a lot of fun enjoying the sunshine! Missy absolutely LOVES being outdoors and I was so excited to see her run around.

Birthday Girl

It's been one crazy year! Eva is finally O-N-E year old! I can't believe how fast this little girl is growing. I wish we lived closer to see her more often, but I guess I can handle a 4 hour drive to see her cute face :) She is such a little sweetheart and I absolutely LOVE it when her face scrunches up and has a cute smile!

Playing with her blocks
Loves her dress!
Here's that cute scrunched face!
Beautiful little family
Awesome cake Tara made!


YAY!! Brady finally graduated! His ceremony was on May 2nd in Salt Lake City but he officially ends class on Monday! I am so proud of all the hard work he's put into his school work. He has put in a lot of late nights and stressful weekends and he can FINALLY relax and enjoy life a bit more :) Now he's playing on two soccer teams and one softball team. I think he will be just as busy with sports as he was with school!

Yay for school!

Well, this semester has been, umm...interesting.  I have never been so busy during a semester and it's only been two full weeks.  It's consisted of late nights...like 1:00 am and up at 5:45-6:00 the next morning.  Lets just say that I am exhausted!! AND to add on top of it...I went and reviewed a test that I had taken last week.  The test was a weird one and we had to answer only 80 out of 105.  If we answered more than 80 it would count against us.  I had earned a 93.7% on this test and wanted to review the answers I had got wrong.  The scantron thing had counted one of my blank answers as a correct answer so long story short...I am going to end up with a 92.5% for being honest.  AND you know what my teacher said to me?? "Kelsey, you can't always be an A++ student."  We'll just have to see about that!
