Looking forward to summer

Things are still moving along around here. I work in a public school that did major layoffs this year, and I was one of the unlucky ones to get a pink slip. BUT our program (after school) was approved for a waiver that gives us full funding next year, so I do have a job after all! So now I can go back to looking forward to summer for the vacation, instead of worrying about it as the end of my job.

Connor is a regular pro at pulling up and cruising now. He can even get back down on his own! (That was a big challenge for a while) We're getting closer and closer to his first birthday, and I'm not ready at all! I think we're going with a Mario Brother's theme, which should be fun.

I am really looking forward to this summer. We want to go camping at least twice, maybe three times if we can make it work. Nights are usually warm enough by the end of June, so that will give us a good two months free for camping. There is also a family reunion in June, which should be a lot of fun. Connor loves car rides and meeting new people, so I'm hoping he has a good time.

And of course, here are a few new pictures!
Connor decided that he hated his playpen, so we went to and turned it in to a ball pit! Yay! Now I can cook breakfast in peace!

Happy Birthday Megan!

I'm a bad mommy. I totally forgot to post on Megan's 14th birthday! But missing it wasn't so bad, because now you can get a picture of her chowing down on her birthday cookie!

Here she is at around 8 years old or so:

And here she is on her birthday, last Saturday (the 25th)
