Loving Arizona!

Well as much as I miss Alaska and the friends I left behind, we are actually really liking it here!
The boys are loving school and doing amazing! Tristan is reading chapter books constantly, alot of times 1 a day!!! He gets so into them! They have both made friends and are enjoying Arizona. They'll enjoy it even more when it cools down a bit LOL!! Jacob is thriving in class.... passing his spelling tests and LOVES his teacher. I help out in Jacobs class quite a bit, but not in Tristans yet. Tristan's teacher isnt allowing volunteers yet but when she does I'll be right there!!
We made a trip to Vegas last weekend to visit family and bring my Mom her new furniture we found here in Arizona. It looks AMAZING in her house and she was able to find the matching chair and ottoman in Vegas so she's got it all now! Her dream furniture!! I was able to catch up with some old Highschool friends which was amazing. I got to meet their kids and they are so cute and just great! My boys spent alot of their time in my Moms pool. One of these days I think me and John will have to suck it up and just get one! The boys couldnt get enough even though it was FREEZING!!! We got to see our good friends Josh and Stephanie and their girls (so sweet). We all went out and had a family dinner. Just a great weekend. I love that we are so close we can just go see everyone for the weekend. I have missed my family a ton being up in Alaska!!
The house is coming together too. John and I have found a new hobby we love... Antique shopping!! The boys actually like it too, they are pros at finding stuff we will just love! We have decorated our house with the beautiful finds!
We miss and love our friends that have become family in Alaska so much! We will be up next summer for a couple weeks for fishing and visiting. Can't wait to see you all again!!
