Settling Down With A Brand New Career

Guess who just became a deputy!

Ryan did! After months of applying, going through the process, and waiting, he did it! He started his new job a couple weeks ago. We are so excited! It’s an amazing job with great benefits, and happens to be his dream job.

This means we will be settling down right here in Kitsap County. It’s so good to finally know where our kids are going to grow up! And it couldn’t be in a more beautiful place.

Potty fun!

Kender has begun potty training. He’ll pee in the potty, but he prefers to poop in his diaper (silly boy). Even so, he’s doing great! He only wears a couple diapers a day, for naps and bed, and he’s had zero accidents in public (thank goodness). We are so proud of him. Our big boy!

Eating healthy(ish)

Now that we’ve planted a garden and are growing some of our own food, we’ve been eating healthier and it feels amazing! I hear people say all the time that they are in better moods and have more energy when they eat healthy and in my mind I always say, “Yeah, sure. Hand me that brownie.” But now, I get it! It’s great! A lot of our stuff isn’t ready to harvest yet, so I went to the store and bought a bunch of fresh veggies to try to get myself to eat more of them. Here are some of my experiments so far:

Fun day outdoors

For the first time since we lived in Rexburg, Ryan and I took the kids out and had a few hours of family fun outdoor activity! Kender is to the point where he seems to think the only place people ever go is “work,” and he thinks that’s fun… He really needs to get out more. My bad! It was a really fun day, and both boys did amazing! Rhett didn’t fuss, and Kender used the park potty! Even I have trouble with that one. He’s so brave.

First we went to Fish Park. I’d never been there before, but it was really nice! It’s pretty much just a walking trail, but it’s really beautiful. After that we headed to the waterfront to throw some rocks into the ocean and enjoy the warmth.

Cute stuff the boys have done lately

Some pictures of what the boys have been up to lately! Lots of dirt and toy excavators…

Last but not least, cute videos!

Rhett’s laugh and Kender singing the excavator song from Twenty Trucks. “This is the work I really love, because that’s what an excavator does!”
