The Condensed Version

Oops! It's been a while! Since August! Geez! I don't even know how to catch up!

Let's do the condensed version.

August- Boys started school. Avery's in 2nd Grade. Sam is in 6th at the Middle School! I started my student teaching in Kindergarten.

September- More of that.

October- Went to Houston for International singing competition. Started Student Teaching in 3rd grade, Sam broke another bone at the church Trunk or Treat.

November- More of that.

December- I graduated! Officially a teacher! Sam was in the drama club play. He did fantastic! Christmas!

January- Avery started gymnastics and LOVES it. We got dogs! Yes, I said dogs! We researched and researched and researched and found that the Shih Tzu brred is one of the least allergenic dogs. We spent hours with the puppies and Sam did fine. We did a trial run on the weekend and he was great. We couldn't pick between the puppies so we got both. We LOVE them and still no allergy issues. Something about their small size, real hair, and saliva glands are different than other dogs. We have tried other hypoallergenic dogs and Sam had bad reactions, but for some reason this one works! WOOHOO! Their names are Apollo and Zia. Zia is 5 weeks older. They have the same dad, but different moms. They are so sweet and cute. Apollo is the feisty, playful one, Zia is so calm and good. Kind of like our children. :)Zia is my baby. She loves me sooo much. We are happy it worked out!

February- AJ's birthday and more of the same.

March- Hmmm, Spring Break. Regional competitions where we won 1st place again. More of the same.

April- I will write a separate post about that. It is all about Avery this month. :)
