Aidan: Mommy, I'm bored!
Me: I can find something for you to do.
Aidan: That will involve picking up, I want to play the computer.
Me: Your not allowed to play right now.
Aidan: But I want to, I need to, it will make me happy.
Me: The computer shouldn't be the only thing that makes you happy, Aidan.
Aidan: It's not, Legos and cars make me happy, and Adley.
Adley: You like me?!?!?!?

Aidan: Mommy, I'm bored!

For the past week it has been non stop rain around here and then finally today a little tiny bit of sunshine! I was getting so tired of the dark drizzly days, the look of everything being soaked and the mess it was creating on my kitchen floors day after day. And now I am annoyed at the time it takes us to get Aidan to and from school. The river that we live near has overflowed onto the main road to Aidan's school. It normally takes us 15 minutes round trip to get him to school, now it is taking us about 45min round trip. Living in the mountains does not provide one with many alternate routes. There is one other road close to us that would get us to the school quicker, but it has been closed for the last year for construction. The way we are going actually has a sign that says 'no thru traffic', but come on if I went the way I supposed to go it would tack on at least another 10 minutes. We are actually driving into town to then go back out of town to get to Aidan's school and then back into town and back out of town to get home. My gas budget this week is going to be over. Now that it has stopped raining hopefully the water will recede a little and by Monday the road will be open.

I have been such a slacker lately with blog posts. Not that we have been overly busy but I just haven't found the right time or energy to put anything in to words. I have recently gone full time at work and that may explain some of my lack of energy and time.
A couple of weeks ago Aidan started the first grade. On the second day of school I asked him how he liked first grade. He told me that "I love it mom, it took me a week to love kindergarten but I love first grade on the second day". The little stinker must have stopped loving it though because he faked sick at school yesterday and after two phone calls from his teacher by 9:15am Jared had to go and get him. Of course his tummy ache was miraculously cured by being at home.
And some pictures from our Utah trip:
He plays safety - should get some more playing time this year!
