Another Quick Update

Tom Hanks, who played Joe Fox from You've got mail said. " Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address." Well I don't live in New York, but I do get to buy school supplies cause... I'm going back to school.... again. 5th college, 3rd actually University and 58 credits to get done before I can officially get a Bachelors in Liberal Arts, History.... After that I don't know. Maybe a credential but I'll get to that later.

I'm taking 7 credits this semester, which comes out to 3 classes. A Critical Thinking class, a History class and a 1 credit History of Nevada class. I have jumped through enough hoops to make me skinny again and yet there is still one more to jump through. I have to go and prove to them that I am a resident of Nevada so I don't have to pay them 8000 dollars... Crazy but true But at least that means I only have 51 credits to get done after that!

I'm pretty sure my History Concentration will be Early American History with a Minor concentration of British History.... so off I go on the 24th to my first class. The other two classes I will be taking online so my computer will be my new best friend

And speaking of computers, our regular computer has gone to pot and is currently sitting at Fry's Electronics being "diagnosed" I'm fully expecting a it's going to cost 300 dollars call any day now. Total "dummer" as Kira would say. So I am currently using an old cpu from the days when Jacob and Tennille were Jacob Anderson and Tennille Winfrey........ a long time ago..... and it is SOOOOO SLLOOOWWW. I'm going insane and I have to write out our Primary Prgram for October (which I'm sure will be the worse one ever seen by Mormon-kind) and it's taking a long time!

Kira is doing well and will officially be 3 in 25 days! That's pretty unbelievable. She still wants to be 2 1/2 though. She has started to potty train and is doing well with it most of the time. We did our first out of the house with no diaper adventure the other night when we took the computer to Frys and I was in the bathroom no less than 3 times for a total of 30 minutes...... But No accidents so I guess that's ok.

In other news, my Brother Brett (or as we like to call him now Uncle Butt) has asked his sweetheart to marry him and she said YES! We are VERY excited for them both and the day is quickly approaching. They are planning on getting married on October 20th at the Las Vegas Temple, (which I have to say is great for me... no traveling). So their wedding date will be 10/20/2010 or in the non-american way it will be 20/10/2010... which is kinda cool I think.

So that's about it from us. I'm excited to be able to go walking again in the mid-mornings, now that it's not 100 degrees at 9am. So I'm looking forward to getting into better shape. I kinda wish I was a runner but I don't think I have it in me....any tips?

'til next time
