What do you think of Mom?

So, my cousin sent this questionnaire out and I had to try it with Reina. It was so fun. Reina enjoyed it too, and was fascinated that I was writing down everything she said. Afterward, she had to ask me some questions and "write" them down. They went something like, "why does an elephant have wings?" "What is pink on a bird?" I didn't get it.

1. What is something mom always says to you? Don’t touch anything or else they will fall down and break.

2. What makes mom happy? Cleaning your toys.

Match Day

Today we found out where Ben matched for residency. We will be calling Colorado Springs home for the next four years! We are excited, Penrose Hospital in Co, was where Ben wanted to go the most, and it was also our closest residency program to family in Utah.

We plan on leaving Portland April 28th, and then going on to Utah for two months. While in Utah we'll travel to Co, to find a place to call home, visit family and take a fun break from reality. Ben will start residency July 1.

We are going to be so sad to leave all of our friends, beautiful Portland, and especially my aunt and her family, my sister and her family, and Grandma and Grandpa Wetzel. I don't even like to think about saying goodbye. We love you all!

The reason I haven't done much for two months

A Dinosaur in time out.

A hurt Sweetie--look at those tears!

And someone who just got put in the swing for five minutes.

Breakfast in Bed

Who says kids can't give you breakfast in bed any day of the year? The kids woke up before me and were playing so well together that they didn't wake me up until they started bringing all their dishes into my room. And what did they serve? Peas, pancakes, donuts, hot chocolate, medicine, and pop.
