The Finished Product!

We finished the yard off by planting flowers and veggies and strawberries! These are the flowers
Josh planted the slightly off center yellow flowers! But I love him for helping! :)
More flowers with all the rocks we pulled out of the flower bed.
My tomato plant! Can you see the little tomatoes?!
The strawberries! I hope we get some this year! I love strawberries!
The other tomato plant, it has some on it too- just can't see them in the picture!
Yeah Yeah Yeah! Our next project is the upstairs bathrooms!

The mostly finished yard!

So we decided to put the sod in today! Yeah for grass! It feels so good underneath my toes!!! We are very excited~ we still need to do the flower boxes and put new heads on the sprinklers...but overall it looks 150% better than the dirt! YIPPY SKIPPY

New Job!

So folks I have been driving 45 minutes to work the past 3 weeks, it was quite the drive. I know you folks in the SLC area think that is very long, but for us southerners that's longer than necessary! :) So I applied at a school that is 5 min away from our house and they called to hire me the next day! Yeah!! So I will be teaching 2nd grade next year (this year I taught Special Education). I am having mixed emotions about the whole thing...I love teaching special ed, there just weren't any openings in my area, I taught 2nd grade for my student teaching and loved the kids it was fun, so I'm sad, and excited all at once! I know for sure that I'm going to have a busy summer setting up my room and getting all of my lessons planned but it will be worth it!

A fEw thINgS....

Last Friday Josh & I took grandpa Hall to see Nim's Island, it was the cutest show.....I would definitely recommend to anyone. I thought it might be a little kids show but it was super enjoyable for us, Josh even liked it!

AnoTHer ThiNG......

I was all excited when I found my Senior Video as we unpacked, So the first chance I got I popped it in, and I was nothing but disappointed.........I guess I remembered it differently but I was only in the video twice, and one was kissing a kid for $5 or $10 bucks for Sub-for-Santa Laker Lockup! So anyways I was kinda sad, oh well I guess I'll just live in my memories of high school not the video's memories.

OnE lAsT thINg....

I'm so ready for summer! I want nothing more than to be able to sit by the pool, take the dogs for long walks.....oh and mostly I'm ready for a tan....and vacations too! Well to put it simply there are 13 school days left!!! Yeah for SuMMer BreAK! :)

Back Yard

Hey so no pics yet, I found the camera and then let my hubby take it, I promise you can see some soon! But Sat we tore out 5 huge plants/trees. So now the whole back yard is dirt....except our massive apple tree! The dogs have managed to get very dirty playing outside....we need to get our sod in fast, I hope next sat is fast enough!

Movin' In

So we started moving our stuff in on Tues. We got alot of stuff moved into the garage but the house was a bit of a mess (piles of stuff everywhere). We stayed up till 1:30 trying to get things organized enough that we could find somewhere to sleep!

The best news was that the water heater wasn't on, because the previous owners had turned the gas off on the meter (we thought they had it shut off)! So Freezing cold shower for Josh and a sponge bath for Les! Last night we got the water heater turned on though so this morning was a warm shower!

We got a ton more things done last night too! we actually have a bed that is made, and bed's in the extra rooms.....we have our couches organized and the kitchen is getting there! But we did go buy groceries so we have food to eat! YEAH!

I'll post some pics as soon as I find the camera in the piles of boxes!
