So, basically, Ryan and I are faced with about a bajillion decisions to make in our lives right about now and we are really not liking this whole being a grown up thing. Poop, all of it is poop. Anyway, we are this perpetual pendulum of wishy washy and never solid in our choices. For instance, lately, we are trying to decide, with our new found financial freedom, should we move out of CA and have Ryan go to BYU, or should Cazra go back to work so Ryan can get his bachelors in CA and then transfer to BYU for a masters? Should we put Ava in daycare, should we pay grandma Cindy to watch her? Should we both work to save money and then just both move, have bunch of kids and live off of student loans? Should we eat oatmeal or bananas for breakfast? Really though, are you getting and idea for how we are right now? Please don't get me wrong, generally we just go with the flow, try to be relatively easy going and mellow, but lately...AHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Anyway, friendly advice always welcome. Love all....smooches

Wednesday, June 25, 2008
So, we are making some incredibly HUGE changes in our lives at present. We have moved out of our first home and have friends living in it. We are back to renting, and actually enjoying the lack of responsibility. For instance...our a/c was barfing water out of one of the vents. It was FABULOUS to be able to call the property owner and not have to worry about it ourselves. "what's wrong?" "how are we going to pay for this?" "Great, now what's broken?" didn't even cross our minds! Anyway, we live VERY close to a trail and we ride our bikes regularly as a family.
We recently had visits from Auntie Ra and Uncle J from Utah (that would be Rachelle and Jeff in Ava speak) and we had a blast. It was great to visit with them and Ava ADORES her auntie and uncle. Now, if only we could get her to meet Ross!
We are SUPER excited about the upcoming family reunion we get to attend in Idaho. This is the first vacation (ish) experience we've had in about 2 years and we are LONG overdue. Besides, we jsut love hearing how adorable Ava is and who better to tell us than a ton of family?!
Well....until next time!
