A New Beginning...

Hello again! As most of you know, our family has gone through some pretty extreme changes lately... The most obvious being my recent divorce after 8 years of marriage. The next being my decision to go back to school to become a Dental Hygienist. As you can imagine, both of these changes have made quite the impact on myself and my three amazing kids: Tanner 9, Jack 8, and Jordyn (Jojo) 5. We cannot wait for the new amazing adventures to come and are excited to be able to share this journey with anyone who is interested in hearing about them...

I guess the first step in writing this blog would be to share with you where we all are at this point in our lives:

Tanner is the oldest of the three kids and is such a great big brother. He just started 4th grade at Freedom Academy and is going starting flag football at the end of August. He had a awesome year last year competing on a Hip Hop Dance team for a local dance studio. He is getting to the age where he is concerned about how he looks.. Won't leave the house without jell in his hair and his teeth brushed! He is becoming such a wonderful young man and I could not be more proud of him!!

Jack is, like he has always been, one of the sweetest kids alive! He doesn't have an enemy in the world and loves everyone just the same. He had a super busy year with his first time doing ballroom competitions and is going to be even busier this year. He is doing group ballroom competitions as well as couples ballroom competitions. He LOVES doing it and he is a natural! Jack so such a blessing to this family with his constant smiles and giggles and his warm and loving personality!

Jojo is 5 going on 16! She wishes. She is the definition of a DIVA. She obsolutely gorgeous and she knows it :) She is always wanting her nails done and her new favorite thing to do is make-overs. She is starting Kindergarten this year and cannot wait for it to start (Aug 28th). She also starts her first year of soccer next Thursday and is excited for the change from ballet (not really her cup of tea). She is soooo hilarious and says some of the funniest things you have ever heard (I will post them as they come)! I love having a little girl to help me pick out my outfit for the day and just hang out with!

As for me, I am going to UVU to finish some classes so that I can start Dental Hygiene school in the fall of 2013. I am loving school and cannot wait to start the DH program! I am still working part time for JetBlue as a reservation agent and love the benefit of working from home! Between juggling school, work and kids, my life stays pretty busy. But, I wouldn't have it any other way.

 I will try to update this blog as often as possible since I no longer have facebook. I hope this will be a good way for all of our friends and family to keep up with what is going on in our lives. Bye for now!
