Were Still Here!

We have been really busy lately so I haven't had much time for blogging. Here is what we have been up to lately.

Jared - Jared has been working really hard at going to school full times and working part time. His school classes are really hard this semester and he is working really hard. Along with this he also has his calling at church where he has to go to mutual on Wednesday nights and teach 1-2 Sunday's a month. He is also working hard on creating an app for the Driod and he is so close to releasing it.

Amanda - I have been super busy with work every day. Once I finish one thing there is always something else waiting for me. I am also taking a business class online. It doesn't take too much time. I have quizes and a small paper due every couple of weeks, so its not too bad. Also, every other Thursday I have my Activity Girls. Thankfully I am a co-leader with my mother-in-law, so planning the activities is easier since I see her at least every other Sunday for dinner. In my spare time, as everyone knows, I am sewing. There are so many people that I know and love having babies and I of course have to make blankets for every one of them. Along with the baby blankets I made a large blanket for my best friend for her birthday and I am now working on one for my sister-in-law and one for my brother for Christmas. Somewhere in the mix of all this crazy I find time to do the normal wife things like laundry, cooking, cleaning and watching my favorite shows.

The past couple weeks have been insane because my parents have been out of town so we have been taking care of my little sister. She is 10 years old and so much fun, but she is an extremely busy child. Not only does she have homework every day but she has swim practice everyday, a swim meet last Saturday, Activity Days, and tutoring twice a week.

We have been really busy the past few weeks, but we have been having a lot of fun. I love getting to play 'Mom' to my little sister while my parents have been gone. Its just great practice for when Jared and I get to become parents.
