FHE anyone?

john and i have decided to be better about having family home evening and last week we had a little lesson and then proceeded to venture out into the 110 degree weather to feed the ducks. people who know me know that i'm not very good with animals, most tend to scare the crap out of me so being surrounded by so many ducks was quite an undertaking for me. needless to say i was the camera man and john and jack did the feeding. how lame am i that i let my baby do the job i'm afraid of. jack actually really liked it and thought it was the funniest thing to throw the bread at the ducks (relatively speaking) not to the ducks. i guess maybe next time i will get brave and try actually feeding the ducks.

you can't tell from these pictures but there were 20 something ducks surrounding us. that is why my camera work is so shaky because i was afraid i was going to step on a duck or worse they were going to attack by surpise

this was going to be a really cool picture because when jack and john started walking away all the ducks were following them. but of course another family decided to start feeding the ducks right then and there so they all ran over to them. lame family ruining my picture.

sorry the video is so shaky

happy father's day...and more

i justed wanted to wish all the fathers out there a very happy fathers day, but i especially want to let my "hooch" know that he is the very best father i could ask for, for our little jack jack. i could not do the things we have to do if i didn't have you as my partner. i know that jack loves you and is so happy to have you as his father. i hope that our jack jack grows up to be just like his dad. we love you daddy.

another note of interest, we found out on friday that jack qualified for developemental preschool. i have mixed emotions about the whole thing, happy that he is going to get the extra help he needs but a little sad he needs the extra help. if that makes any sense at all. i guess i'm just shallow or somethings because i just want jack to live an average childs life and that is not the path heavenly father has in store for him. i know that, that means he has a super strong spirit and i'm lucky heavenly father thought john and i were the best parents for him. i guess i'm just having a human moment. don't get me wrong i know that jack can and will do anything he wants to do in life.

so back to the origianlly point of this, he will actually start school this august and he will go 4 days a week for 2 and a half hours. i can't believe my baby is going to be in school. not that 2 and a half hours is a long time but i don't know what i'm going to do with myself. i haven't been alone in my house for more then an hour since jack was born. well wish us luck with this whole transition, i'm pretty sure jack will love it and really benefit from this opportunity.

what a way to kill the happy fathers day, huh!?!?
