AND SO THE CRAZINESS BEGINS
Sunday, July 13, 2014
I will back track back to last year after General Conference we felt like something needed to change; my husband was working over 80 hours a week and we were not seeing the compensation for his efforts; the golf course that he was the head pro at was on target to make over $50,000 or more in revenue in 2013 than they had in 2012; the company promised him a raise after the new year and we were holding out until we knew what the would be. After the beginning of the year, the numbers came in and they had indeed reached their projected goal for 2013 and surpassed it but after careful planning the company came back and offered him a .03 cent raise...A BIG SLAP IN THE FACE; and we knew we needed to get away from CGM...the first thought was to go back to school; it was something that we had talked about earlier and something we wished we would have done when we first got married 5 years ago. We decided that BYU Idaho was the place we needed to be. So in the end of January with only a week away from the deadline for the spring and fall terms, we got everything submitted and waited. We felt very strongly that this was the course we were suppose to take. Well, guess it was not...my husband did not get in; his GPA was just under what it needed to be to be admitted; it was the next blow...so we went back to the drawing board; there was gentleman in our ward that had a son in law that worked for a construction company and were looking at hiring a salesman; we submitted our information but did not hear back from them and then another opportunity came; my husband has really wanted to get into the sales rep side of the golf industry; he had been on the pro shop/course side for 5 years. He had applied to a position with Wilson Staff in 2013 and it came down to him and another guy and he was beat out; he always told me that you had to know someone to get into the industry and it was difficulty. He found an opening with a company called Oxford Golf and submitted his resume. He was called by one of the sales reps in Orlando and he told him that he was applying to his brothers company; my husband told me this was his in and he really wanted to take it. I was and am still very nervous about the whole thing but it made him very happy. So he accepted the position with Oxford Golf; to be the representative of the Rocky Mountain Territory (Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Colorado)

After a few weeks Macy was in the hospital she started to feel better and even start sitting up...
This is Teddy at sip n dip-donuts...yum
My bestie Wende's birthday-year 3...and we can never leave out Gardner and Teddy...even though he is 6 and Teddy is 2, they love each other
Just lounging around-and playing
TIME OUR FOR WOMEN!!!
I got to see my mission presidents son perform with his group; Hudson Lights
Ear Pierce-over Christmas break, baby King got her ear pierced and it was something I was thinking about doing with May...we finally did it one Friday evening...Teddy waited patiently!!!
Macy loves aunt Ashlee...After getting ear pierced, we went over and had some Rita's =)
First time turning over at night
Monday we picked G up from school and got some balloons and brought them to the hospital; I love these boys, they are so very special to me...I am grateful that God was able to spare Dan's life and he was some more time in mortality to be with his sweet wife and family.
Saint Patrick's Day!!! And 11 months for my Macy Girl!!!
That same day I took some pictures of Teddy, my little boy is not so little anymore!!!
We got to go to the Church Ranch Rodeo; it was fun, Teddy loved it. Last year, Sam had to work and my parents were out of town, so I brought Teddy my myself, I was 8 months pregnant with Macy and it ended up being a cold night, we left early. This year we all got to go and it was warmer and a nice evening.
He hair is finally long enough for a pony!!!
We lost Teddy's teddy bear and could not find it for 4 days; I knew that it was at my parents house...it was the last time I remembered him having it but we search their whole entire house and just could not find it. Day 4, I went over there determined to find it. We started at the top of the house and finally came to the living room. We gave up and sat on the couch for a few minutes and then we found him. Teddy had thrown him up above the TV where the eater bunnies were, from far away he could not be seen but upon closer look he was there...haha
The next morning I cam into his room and had the bear under my shirt and he immediately knew what is was; he kept saying 'teddy came home, teddy came home', 'thank you mommy, thank you'...it was so cute...priceless...the time will come when we might scale back on the Teddy bear, but not today; I was relieved to find it
My sister works at the Nemours Childrens Hospital in Orlando; she works in the pulmonary department with most children under 18 that have Cystic Fibrosis; they had the CF 5k in Orlando and Ash invited us to go.
Walk Today, add tomorrows was a slogan of the race!!
These kids are my life; I love them so much!!!
I just love spending my days with them; I sometimes wish I did not have to work and I could just smother them all day; but for now, I do what I have to do!!! February and March flew by...crazy!!!
