1 month

Ben is now 1 month old, and unfortunately we only stayed in the picture craze the first week of his life. I figured I better take some more so that in 25 years he can compare his baby pictures to those of his future kids. He is smiling in response to us now, which I absolutely love, but I never have the camera present when he does, so I have yet to get a good picture of him smiling. And hope is in sight! He has had three nights of 5-6 hour stretches. Hopefully I wont be the sleep-deprived grouch for much longer! He had his 1 month check yesterday and now weighs in at 7.5 lbs!
Kylie is down to her last month of Kindergarten. We are having a little dilemma about next year though. She has spent the past year at a private Christian school and our original plan was to keep her there for this year, and then transfer her to the public school for 1st grade. But now i am actually wanting to keep her where she is at for these reasons: a- academically they are further ahead of the public school. b- she knows the routine and campus. c-the class sizes are a lot smaller, and with her being so shy it helps her open up more quickly and she gets personalized attention. c- she has some great friends there. d-the 1st grade teachers are excellent. e- because it is a Christian school, the kids dont use the Lords name in vain which is apparently something you dont get in the public school. and f- she really wants to stay. Cons to staying are: a-because its a private school its flippin expensive. b- its usually a 40 minute round trip drive as its out in the foothills. c- the principal doesnt believe Mormons are Christians. I just dont know what to do.
And for you Utahans who had snow on Saturday- we hit the 100 mark yesterday. You missed the two week period of spring down here. But if you wanna come visit in November when we are back to the 80's you have an open invitation!

School decisions are so tough aren't they? I can see why this would be a hard one to make too. Are there any other schools around you can check out? Either way, I'm sure you'll figure out what's right for you guys.

I can't believe he's a month old already!!
