Yesterday was Brets first day of school! The mom in me was so temped to have him stand by the front door and take his "first day picture" before he could leave! He was on a wait list for one of his classes (pre-calc) and luckily he found out yesterday he got into it which made us happy. So he is on his way now to his degree. Its exciting to start this new chapter of our lives, kind of scary but exciting none the less. I am enjoying having him home more during the day too!
Connor LOVES to stand up! He stands up all the time now and is starting to get adventurous and trys to let go here and there. He is starting to really cruise a bit along the couch and stuff. I bet he will be walking before we know it!
For any of you who have not heard Bret is going back to school full time. We will be moving to Utah for him to go to school down there the last week of August/first week of September. We are very excited for this change but nervous as well. We are excited to have a fun little adventure and meet new people, live near family we dont usually get to see often and for Bret to further his education. He will be getting his degree in Mechanical Engineering. He will do his first 2 years at SLCC (to get residency for tuition at the University) and then he hopes to finish his last two years at the University of Utah. As for me I really hope to continue my photography business down there. Im hoping to be able to get it going once we get there. So to all you in Utah... here we come! See you in about 5 months!
Hello... yes Im still alive! I havent blogged since November! I cant believe it! Everytime I get on the computer I think "Oh I need to blog, I will go do it when Im finished editing or checking emails." Then I finish and I want to go to bed and end up not blogging. So here we are, with a massive time gap on my blog. Sorry to my mother in law who I know enjoys reading the blog, I will start it up again Maggie:) So I have crowned myself the worlds worst blogger but I promise to try to be better!
Heres what I have been up to.... www.madsenphotography.blogspot.com or you can find me on Facebook at Madsen Photography. I really enjoy doing photography but it sure does suck up your time! I spend so much time editing and by the time Im done I dont want to be on the computer anymore. But its a lot of fun and I have such a great clientle built up now.
Cameron is almost 3 already! I cant even believe it! He will turn 3 on May 4th. My little baby is a little boy now! Just today I was browsing through some old pictures and I cant believe how much he has grown up. He is a very busy boy, chats your ear off and runs everywhere! Its exhausting (for me). He is a very very smart kid. He surprises me with what he knows everyday and he learns amazingly fast. Right now he is in a Cars kick and I swear I have heard/watched that movie about a million times in the last month lol. We are taking him to Disneyland for his birthday and he is so excited to meet Mickey Mouse!
Connor is 9 1/2 months old now which blows my mind! He is supposed to still be a brand new baby. I swear time goes way too fast. A friend of mine shared a quote that sums up my life... "The days go slow but the years go fast." It amazes me that he is coming up on his first birthday when I feel like he was just born yesterday. He is a busy little boy! Crawling all over the place and he loves to climb up the stairs. I swear he is going to be just like Cameron and walk early. Cameron walked at just over 10 months and it wouldnt surprise me if Connor walked around that time too. He is such a sweet little boy, cuddles with me and loves to play one on one with you. He is a peaceful little boy and brings so much happiness to our home. We call him our garbage disposal because he will eat any and everything you put in front of him!
As for Bret he is going back to school! His last day at his job is this Friday and he starts school next Tuesday. He will be going to school for a degree in Mechanical Engineering which is a 4 year degree. We will be doing two quarters here and then transferring to go to school in Utah. Its a big change but it will be a lot of fun. He is excited to start a new phase of life and have his education furthered.
Thats about what we have been up to. I will try really hard to do better!
Bret and I grew up in the same ward in Normandy Park, WA. We started dating the end of my junior year in highschool. We got married August 20, 2005. We have a little boy who was born May 4, 2008 and Im expecting our second in June.
This blog is here to serve as both a family journal and a place for family and friends to have a peek into our life. This way if you would like to know what we are up to you can! I know our life isnt too exciting at the moment, but there is always something new happening and this is where you can read about it!
