Vacation nearing the end

It has been a great summer. I can't believe I start setting up my classroom Monday morning. I am going to miss being with my two favorite boys in the entire world. It is amazing how quickly the summer goes by. Connor had an amazing summer. He is starting to look like a little boy instead of mommy's baby boy.  I don't think I am quite ready for him to grow up.  It goes by way too fast.  I am glad I have taken a lot of pictures of Connor to remind me just how small he was and what he was like when he was just born.  I treasure them all so much.  
Selling the house has been slow...we are still waiting on getting an offer.  I just keep praying that God will send the right person to our house that will see everything we loved about the house when we bought it.  
Next week, Josh and I will be celebrating our 5th Anniversary!  I am very excited.  I am so happy to be married to Josh.  He is definitely without a doubt my soul mate and my best friend.  I think sometimes I am very hard to live with and I don't know how Josh puts up with me but, he does, and I am so grateful to have him.  We have been through a lot together and I love him more than the day that I married him.

Fun in the Sun

These were some pics that I took at my mom's house using her camera.  Connor was having a blast playing with the hose and I had to capture the moment.  He is having so much fun this summer.  We have been going to swimming lessons and he has gotten really good at swimming.  He is dog-paddling with our support.  He loves the water.  
We just put our house on the market.  We are hoping to move into Cabezon in a new neighborhood that Artistic is building.  The home is exactly what we want.  We are so excited to see if we can sell our house and be able to move there.  So far everything is going very well.  Our house is listed with Campbell and Campbell.  We are hoping to be able to have a yard just for Connor to play in.  He loves playing outside.  
I also would like to send my thoughts and prayers to the Harris family.  Joe Harris worked for the Sheriff's Department in Rio Rancho and was killed by a burglar he was trying to arrest.  I work with his wife Tonia and his daughter Ally.  They are devoted christians and I know Joe is now in heaven with Jesus but it is very sad that he left his family so quickly.  It is amazing how fast your life can change in one second.  I pray that I never take my family for granted and just be thankful that God has blessed me with an amazing husband and adorable son.  They are my life and I don't know what I would do without them.  I try not to take our time together for granted.

It has been very difficult to load these pictures. For some reason I was not able to load them from my own computer, but it worked on my moms. These are pics from Josh's badge ceremony. He just got promoted to driver in the fire department. It was a lot of hard work but he made it! Congratulations honey!! I am so proud of you. Connor had a lot of fun playing on the fire trucks and he also got to help pin Dada's badge on him during the ceremony.
Josh and I have been very busy lately. We have been getting our house ready to put on the market. It has been a lot of work. You don't realize you have so much 'stuff' until you start really decluttering. We had to rent a storage unit to put some of our stuff for staging. The house looks really good. It is now all ready except for painting a hallway. We are going to be calling the realtor next week to come and look at the house. We are very excited to get into a family sized house and be in a home that we plan to spend a long time living in. We really want to live in community not just a neighborhood. We are looking at moving into Cabezon. I have some friends that live there and they seem to really like it. We'll just have to see how long it takes us to sell our house.
I hope everyone has a great Fourth of July. Be safe and have fun!
