I made this great dinner after the boys, Moqui and I got home from the YMCA. I was so proud of the little white sole fish fillet rubbed with ginger, fresh orange zest, oil and juice, neatly packed in foil with fresh organic broccoli and asparagus. Of course these types of meals meet some resistance once at the table, I'm not real sure why, when they eat it all anyway?!?!

It's not like I haven't had asparagus before, certainly not often, but that day had been long and the first moment I had to myself to sit and relax was in the bathroom after putting the kids to bed. That's when I noticed it! My pee smelled just like asparagus! Immediately I thought I should remember to call Adam and tell him. If you know Adam, bodily functions of all types are a great conversation piece and are discussed often anyway.

Do you know what he said to me? "You didn't know!?" "No." I said. "So this is a well known fact is what your telling me, and I have been totally oblivious?" "Yeah, ask anyone in my family, ask Sarah, tell them that your pee smelled funny after dinner, they'll say... did you have asparagus." Well, there you have it. The moment I stop to relax for a moment and smell the.........asparagus, I mean pee, or I mean roses. I wonder what revelations come from those men who like to meditate while moving their bowels? Think about that one for a minute! HAHAHAH

1st day @ summer school!

So Ethan started his first day of summer school off with...pouting, whining, crying, running away and finally as a last resort utter protest, he sat in the middle of the dirt and refused to move. The night before was when it really started, although he knew it was coming and we talked about how great it would be, what fun he would have, none of it stopped his hour and a half pouting session.

Well I don't know if it was the right thing to do or not, but I forced him to go to class. I had to drop off Kaleb and Moqui with my younger brother that is thankfully home on summer break, turn right back around and sat with him in his class for 45min. His teacher discouraged parents from staying with good reason, however, he has been very clingy for the last few months. We've been home alone together for months, taking naps together, snuggling and such, so of course I expected him to fear more independence. But guess what, I left after a while and he had a great day. Tomorrow he wants to go to the cafeteria by himself and go to class with his teacher.

Ahhhh(big sigh), he's so grown up! He's my lil' baby boy, happy tears! :) So I took some pictures of all of us eating breakfast in the cafeteria.

Back To School!

So here is the brake down for going back to school. If all goes as planned I will be starting the Master Massage Therapist program in September. This program is a 1000 hours with core classes such as; kinesiology, pathology, craniolsacral, myofacial release, reflexology, therapist portfolio and so on.

The exciting part for me is the specialty courses, I can choose two different specialties to complete my degree, they are all so fantasticly wonderful this was a hard decision to make. However, I have decided to take the Zen Shiatzu (or Tui Na Asian Therapy) and Spa treatments. The spa treatments covers things like ayuvedic head massage, scrubs, lymphatic massage, stone therapy massage, aromatherapy and sedona swedish. Well you just cant go wrong there can you.
