So, not a whole lot going on right now at the Perkins residence. Just hanging out, livin life. One big thing is that we are FINALLY going to be moving in the middle of April to Bountiful, and we are sooo excited to be a little closer to everyone, and closer to Tom's work! We are going to rent Roger's house (with a swimming pool!!) and I'm sure we'll be hosting some totally awesome pool parties! Tomorrow, we are meeting with a potential preschool for Carleigh to go to in the fall. I've been looking around, and I can't believe the prices of preschools, and the waiting lists - its insane! I think its harder to get into some preschools than college! Seriously! But, this one we're going to see is a lady who does it out of her home, and she's a licensed teacher, so it should work out well. It sound like people have given her good reviews, and its not just glorified daycare! Carleigh is so excited to be able to go to preschool, and I'm already wondering what it will be like to just hang out with Tyse alone for a few hours! Maybe I'll actually get some stuff done! Or, maybe not! Nothing really new with us, Tom's brother Jeff has been living with us for the past 2 weeks, Tom got him a job at his company. We don't see him a whole lot, he just comes home from work, and eats, and then goes out with his girlfriend all night. He is going to be moving in with Braden next week, and then we won't have to be his parents anymore, and give him a curfew! Like he comes home on time anyway! Anyway, hope all is well with each of you. Also, as a final note, I came across a blog about a little girl named Gracie, who is 11 months old, and she just received a heart transplant, and its not working, so she needs a new one. I'm asking each of you to pray for this sweet little girl, and count your blessings for your health, and the health of your kids, and families. Their blog is thegledhillfamily.blogspot.com

Well, there's really nothing going on, so I'm sure this will be a very boring post. Life just continues to go on day after day, same old story. Lately, I've just realized how fast my kids are growing up, and it kind of makes me sad in a way. Sometimes I miss the little newborn stage, where every day is different, and I loved just being able to snuggle with them. But I do love this age my kids are at now. Carleigh loves to learn, and every day we are working on writing her name, and new little art projects like coloring, or making something out of construction paper. She loves to read,and she is learning what sounds the letters make. She also takes a dance class once a week, and looks forward to it all week long. She is excited to start preschool in the fall. Tyse is at a cute age too. He is learning to talk, and loves animals,especially cats and dogs. He is in to absolutely everything! He loves to empty out drawers, and play with my measuring cups and pots and pans, but its too hard to get mad at his sweet little face! He is almost as big as his sister, there's only a few pounds between the two of them, and he already tackles her,and beats her up. Its really cute to see them being able to play with each other, and to realize how much they love and care about each other. If I send one of them to time out, the other one usually ends up there too, comforting the other one! They keep me busy, and I am grateful that I can stay home with them. Me and Tom are just living life, and trying to make the most out of each day. I am grateful for my life and my family, and in this crazy world, thats nothing to be ashamed of.

Wow! I am so excited! Taylor Swift is coming to Salt Lake on May 26th!! For those of you who don't know, Carleigh is obsessed with anything and everythng to do with Taylor Swift. She knows the words to every song, and every time we get in the truck, the first thing she says is can I listen to Taylor Swift. I am so excited to take her to this concert, and I'm hoping it won't to too expensive to get backstage passes to meet her. Anyways, I am excited, and Carleigh is too!!
