that we are moving away from this gorgeous state in just a few weeks, like 3 to be exact! That's a plus for you guys though because I will probably update the blog more since we will be back in a foreign country again. SO since I realized that we are leaving very soon and we will be very busy during our final weeks, I decided to get out and see some of our favorite sites here in the Springs. I'm sure we will be making more visits as time to leave draws closer, but I wanted to share some pictures of our favorite things here. I took the kids the other day to Garden of the Gods to take a picture in my fav spot, the heart cutout. I'm not sure if anyone else thinks it looks like that, but I love it!!! Today we also spent some time in Manitou Springs and driving the jeep off road on Gold Camp road. The kids love driving on Gold Camp road because it takes you winding up and down Cheyenne Mountain(I think?), it could be another mountain? lol. You can see Helen Hunt falls and other water falls from high up as well as the Colorado Springs airport! The kids and I have been enjoying the sunny days and working on our tans so we don't fry when we get to Texas next month! I know I am very excited about this next chapter in our lives but as always, I hate to leave this one behind. On a positive note so I don't get all sappy and depressing on you, I bought an elliptical to take to Germany with us. The positive about this is, the money that was spent to buy it, I won back that same night at BINGO! hahahahahaha. You can't get any luckier than that huh? Oh and I also received two A's and a B this semester. I'm extremely excited over these grades because it was my first semester of all senior/upper level courses! With a crazy life and crazy kids, I'm pretty sure that I made my own Dean's List, lol! Thanks to everyone for all of their encouraging words and thoughts! Get them ready for the summer semester!! Love you all!!!

I forgot to say that Mason's new word is "Gotcha!" He says it for anything that he has to grab, hold on to, is trying to reach, Emma's hair, etc. I just heard him say it in the bath tub to his car and thought you all should know...lol. Alright, there is nakedness running around my immaculately clean house, this must be stopped.
I just want to let my father know how much I love him, I am updating this for him right this very second. He said he might die or something if he didn't see new pics of the kids....that might be a stretch from our actual conversation but that's what I got out of it! So, daddy, I am writing this while the kids are in the bath pouring gallons of water onto my bathroom floor...yes mother I can see them, they are still alive. Emma is practicing swimming for Honey's pool as we speak, type, whatever. I finished finals last week so that is basically where I have been. After staring at the computer for 3 online classes I really have no desire to do anything computer related at the end of the day, but I am on break until June 1st, yay! The house we live in here in the Springs just started showing this week and that is really cramping my style, and by my style I mean keeping a house that two tornadoes live in, quite clean. It's near impossible but I am happy to report that it's going on 4 days of cleanliness, be proud! Emma is done with soccer, thank goodness and has one session left of skating. We have already found a place for her to skate this summer while in Texas and she is really excited about it! We should be leaving here in about 3 weeks and I am really excited for this new adventure we are going to have. I am very sad to leave my friends though, they have been wonderful and I will miss them terribly!!!! Good thing aviation is a small world, I know I will see them again someday!
