Back to school

I promise I'm going to try and keep the blog updated at least once a week! 
But since I was here last we have moved, carter started on a travel ball baseball team, and the kids have started school! 

Travel ball is a competitive baseball team. That also means its a lot of work and commitment! Carter and daddy are both having a great time with it though! 

School is insane because I now have 4 kids in 4 different schools that all start around the same time! I have to get the three older boys to school and back home in time for Arinas bus to come at 7:18. It's absolutely crazy! Jax hasn't started school yet because its a lot more work to get him ready. He will go two days a week for a half day. The good thing is he will go to the same school as Arina and they will ride the bus together. we switched nursing companies and have a new nurse that has worked a few shifts now. We really like her, and she will go to school with Jax!

Because of the crazy school schedule I came up with a way to get lunches ready quick. I have a cold and pantry bucket, with multiple lunch items. I have the boys grab a few things out of each bucket, and lunch is done! I just don't have time to make their lunches and get everyone else ready to go, now that Arina goes in the morning as well.
It's worked out really great so far!

Overall we've been busy, but busy is how we like it! We're coming up to Arinas 5th birthday next month! We can hardly believe she's been home 4 years! Sometimes it feels like yesterday and other times it feels like I gave birth to her myself! She is now potty trained. It took a whole two weeks after she showed me she was totally ready! It was so fun to send her back to school in undies. She is such an amazing little princess!
Just loving life with my amazing family and friends!

So good to see how you are all doing. It doesn't seem like 4 years since Arina came home. Where has the time gone

Hi Lacey, you don't need to post this but I was looking at your Trachs-r-us page on facebook and I was wondering if I could offer any help to you? I'm really good at spelling and grammar and would love to offer my help if you need it. I was also wondering when Jaxson got approved for the sleep safe bed? I saw a picture of him in the bed on facebook and was so happy that he finally got it! I was also wondering if his port got reinserted after being taken out in December. If you want to contact me, my email address is draherl@gmail.com. I'd love to hear from you, but understand if you don't have the time! :) I can't imagine how busy you are!

Wow, it has been such a long time since I've been keeping up with blogs. Just checked in here today and a few things: I can't believe how big Arina has gotten. The picture of carter playing baseball is AWESOME, hope he had a good season. Your hair looks really nice short. And I am so going to do those boxes in pantry and fridge, I hate packing Nathan's lunch.
