Kari was diagnosed with Hashimotos ( the same thing Makinley has) 4. Makinley is in fourth grade 5. Kyson is in second grade. 6. Easton is in first grade. 7.Kari is home alone all day and gets very bored. Not to much new and exciting but I did get a new camera since my old one broke and plan to post pictures again soon.

autism walk

Finally pics from the autism walk. Thanks to all those who took time out of their busy schedules to come support Kyson and our family. It means ALOT to me to know I can count on you if I need anything. Kyson was so cute with his aunt Dena and her daughter Savannah. He still asks if they can come over and play. HaHa
A special thanks to Jess for being our paparazzi!!! Of course I left my camera in the car.

Halloween

This year our family decided to go as monsters inc. I made Kyson's, Kinleys, and my costume. Larry was out of town for the second year in a row. The kids loved their costumes me on the other hand felt a little embarrassed so I don't think I will dress up again.

kindergarden, first and third oh my!

Yes can you believe it I now have all 3 kids in school!! It is sad yet exciting to be past the infant stage. What will I do with myself. Makinley is very excited to be back in school summers are long for her, and she is always so ready for school to start. She is in third grade and loves it.



Kyson went into first grade this year so far he hasn't complained about going but I am sure that day is coming.. He says he already has two girl friends. hee hee



Easton was ready to go to school and is loving it so far , but it has only been two days. He is our kindergardener and is my baby boy it is sad my kids are growing up, good thing I am going to stay young.



End of summer trip.

I needed to get a few last things before school started so I made a quick trip out to Grand Junction. My sister in-law came with me and we stayed the night. Kyson decided to stay with his grandma Moon. Makinley and Easton had so much fun.

I guess this sums up our summer

At the beginning of summer I had my kids write a list of things they wanted to do while out of school. We now only have 1 week left of summer break and we have not accomplished anything. makinley said the only thing we did this summer is go to doctor appointments and she is right. Makinley was diagnosed with Hashimotos (it is where your body builds up antibodies to kill off your thyroid)in April so she has been to Salt Lake for appointments and has had to have her blood taken several times. She also has a bad stomach and had a scope at primary childrens and spends alot of time in pain or at the doctor, we still don't know the cause. She has been taking 5 pills a day not good for an 8 year old. We blame it on the Moon genes. We took Kyson out of his research study but had his blood taken for another study which was fine because we also had him tested for Hashimotos since Makinley is so young with it they wanted all of us to be tested.He deos not have it thank goodness. We also started him on meds for add hoping they would help him concentrate so he can learn to read but we have gone through lots of kinds of meds and no such luck. Easton has also had his blood tested and he is fine but then he breaks his arm. So Makinley was right we have seen the doctors office alot this summer, hopefully with school starting things will calm down. Makinley is good now for 6 months then they will recheck to made sure her blood levels are still good, if not they will just up her medication so now she just needs to gain back all her muscle tone. Here are the things we did get to do this summer. I had one goal for the summer and I accomplished it, it was to get Kyson riding his bike without training wheels. Easton has been riding for over a year but Kyson had a hard time learning to balance but he finally did it!!!!
videoOur new babies. Larry decided to get back into oriental pheasents(shows how old he is)and he hatched out a few birds in the incubator. My kids loved it.





It a trip to thanksgiving point. We had to pick Larry up at the airport after he went to Texas for training, it was a good chance to let the kids do something fun.
