What a fun day

Adam and I were so excited to break out the pool. It was really warm and the water...was freezing! I knew our well water was cold, but I didn't expect to try and put a pitcher of warm water in to warm it up for Adam. The closest I got Adam to actually sitting in the water was just playing in it and playing with the hose. I didn't trust him with the hose (what mom would trust an almost two-year-old with a hose?), so I hid the camera.

This started s a thumbs up, but ended up with Adam pointing at something I can remember what, but it ended up being pretty funny.

My sweet little angel. Doesn't he look innocent as all get out right here? When it comes to water, heck no!!! We love him nonetheless.

Ladies and Gentlemen....

We did it!!!!

We're so stinking excited, we finally graduated with our Bachelor's Degrees from Brigham Young University Idaho.

Travis graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Computer Information Technology. He will continue to be a VOiP administrator and network engineer at BYU-Idaho.
I graduated with a Bachelor's of Scicence in Unversity Studies. I will continue to pursue Adam full time and work on my photography as time allows.

Here are some pictures that my family took at graduation on Thursday night. It was so hot in the gym during commencement! Convocation was cooler, but still warm.

Adam gave me a congratulatory kiss, and it was so sweet. Don't mind my little brother's face in the foreground.

I'm pretty sure that this was a look of relief and "Don't take a picture of me, I'm supposed to be behind that camera!" But mostly relief.

Adam thought our caps were funny, but not funny enough to wear one himself, we only could get him to wear it for a few seconds.

Yay! We walked! But hey we got gipped, where's the real diploma?

Travis and I are very grateful to those who made this trip to be at our graduation. It meant a great deal to both of us. Although we hadn't planned on walking, it was kind of nice to have a culmination of some sort to show the end of our schooling.
This is a picture of all the people who attended either commencement or convocation. I had a great-grandma come all the way from California as well as grandparents, another great-grandma, and immediate family who traveled from Central Washington for the very short trip. Thanks to Shelby's friend Hannah who made the trip and took this picture.

I think this was just as much a graduation for Adam because of what he had to put up with while Mommy was in school. I think it was a sacrifice on both our parts, but that's okay, I'll promise Adam, it will be worth it in the end.

My graduate and my son. I'm so proud of both of them.

We've been crazy busy!

We're so busy that the only time we have at the moment has been

A. working on homework
B. Eating
C. Sleeping (if we're lucky)

Anyhow, the reason why you ask we're so busy? We are finally graduating with our Bachelor's degrees. Yes! And we're graduating together. We're so excited to be done, and it's not even funny how burnt out we are.

Here's a picture of Adam's first time swimming this year because I have so much posting to catch up on. And I always have to have a picture, otherwise it drives me batty!

It finally happened...

Poor Adam, he went going downstairs last night a lot faster than he normally would. I was in the kitchen and Travis was in the basement. We think that probably half way down he leaned too far forward and went head over heels. Because Travis was in his office, he heard his first thump and whine and ran to the bottom of the stairs and was able to catch Adam before hitting the bottom. I thought that the thump was from Travis and he had scared Adam thus creating the whine. When Adam started crying I thought it was because he was terrified. The look on Travis' face said otherwise. Adam was bleeding a little bit, but we couldn't find where, it was either his lip or tongue. He ended up being fine and just a little spooked, but he definitely doesn't go down the stairs near as fast as he did before. When we first moved here in April we debated on getting a gate, but Adam has always been so careful, that we put those thoughts to rest. I think this has reopened the debate.
