we are the wests,
In our family there is David, Becky, Samuel(5), Harrison(4), Larakia(2) and Micah(6 months).
This week has been a mad week filled with happy moments, and stessful moments.
Micah started crawling, and while trying to get my attention in the car by crying moaned mum!!! i shouldnt be to excited by that as it was done in moan, but i really am!!
Harrison is at school for the last day of the achedemic year today, i cant believe it is holiday time already, Samuel finishes school tomorrow.
Samuel is turning into such a big grown up boy, it scares me to death, he can spell, read, write, has his own little group of friends.
so very scary!!!
Harrison is becoming very cheeky also, he is the master of practical jokes, and he looks so darn cute that he gets away with it all.
His teacher always cringes whenever Harrison brings a box to school for show and tell, because it will always be something creepy or gross, his latest show and tell was a dragonfly he found in the garden, time before that was a dinosaur tooth....yes a real one.... before that a snail, then a gient moth..... he does love his bugs!!!
Larakia has decieded she is to big for nappies now and so has hung them up in exchange for some dora pants.
she loves looking after Micah, she likes to feed him anything she can find.
She likes nothing more than to be the boss, and she is cute enough that she can do it and everyone just says aaahhhhh how cute.
David is doing well at work and in his callings, he is the first and only councellor on the branch presidency. He is always working so very hard, he is a very good man.
David has singlehandedly created a garden for the children, he has given us an amazing decked area, and new walls and gates, turfed area, and soon hopefully british weather permitting we will have new patio doors as well.
He works so hard all the time to give is a great home and wonderful memories.
And now for me, well i am the sunday school teacher in the branch, i am still working one day a week at tesco, i have started my own buisness creating wedding staionary and other special occasion stationary.... and had some orders already!!!, i am starting a degree in september ( from home) in health studies, busy with the PTFA.....yep im a soccer mum (mom).
I'm loving family life, they are amazingly hard work but the reward i get from them is amazing.
oh and i cant believe i am saying this im loving gardening.... i always thought it was for oldies, but no i decided to give my house a bit of a country look so put up some window baskets, and some blanter and hanging baskets, and they didnt die, they are growing its amazing, and my back garden has flowers everywhere, i cant believe it, i am even successfully growing strawberries!!! which i havn't been able to try yet, as everytime one gets ripe the kids are there ready and waiting to eat them!! The children are loving having a garden, its the first time any of them have had a garden to play in.
anyway i have to go and get ready for the school run, i hope everyone is doing well and happy!!
