Getting Settled

Well, we are felling settled for only living here a week.  I will be much happier when we get a couch in our family room but other than that everything is wonderful.  This home has a much better flow than our rental did and I am happy about that.  The kids still rather play in the front yard (what was the point of a back yard again?) hopefully they will enjoy the space soon.  One major perk for this place, according to the kids can be summed up in one word SLUGS.  They have found at least one or two a day, that makes me happy, I love bugs (spiders don't count they have 8 legs). The boys are getting excited about school, Parker met his teacher last night, I couldn't find her as first because she looks 16.  She just got married so she is legal, I don't feel that I am old enough to feel this way but what ever.  Parker seems excited hopefully this 1st grade experience is better than last time, I am sure it will be.  Everett gets to meet his teacher tonight and he is very excited about that, I hope he likes her.  Mason is in for a shock when they both go to school next week, he is convinced that he is going as well.

New House

I am so Excited about our new home in Oregon City and our new back yard.  We will miss all of our friends in Sherwood and hope to be able to still see them around.  We are excited about our last move for a while ; ) The things I am most excited about is having central vac, a gas stove, extra rooms, and a back yard.  The boys are most excited about, Parker - my closet with shelves for my Legos, Everett - my closet with shelves for a lego collection, Mason - to share a room with Simon, Simon - to be in my own room (is Simon excited or Mom?) Phil - to move the lawn ; )  Yay! New Home!

Parkers new glasses

Parker went to the eye doctor and he suggested that Parker get reading glasses to help prevent anything. With a family history like ours we decided it would be a good thing. He was very excited and picked these out himself. Isn't he such a handsome kid, if I do say so myself.

friend did this on her blog and it is so fun to see all of the memories. so be sure and post this on your blogs next.

Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember! Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you (if you already haven't). It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

We just had a huge Fox family Reunion in Spokane Washington.  So many people, Kids mostly.  We went boating, had yummy food (by Melissa Fox) Chatted and mostly hung out with everyone on Foxhill.  The kids basically spent every day from 10am to 10pm playing with 35 cousins ( I am not counting 5 babies and 5 teenagers).  Hopefully Mom foxes house survived.  See for more pictures but here are some of my favorites.  The one with 8 moms and 7.5 babies was a big deal, it is the most kids born in a 13 month period (Sam is due in September)  right now they are 11 1/2 month old to 4 days old, seated in order.

Mamma Mia

Me and a bunch of my sister-in-laws went and saw the movie Mamma Mia.  We had such a good time that we decided dance and sing to that song for the Fox family talent show.  We had a lot of fun, my kids were thrilled to see me up there having fun and I think we shocked everyone with our costumes.
