MaKenzie, Kaleb, and the C.I. Kola at the hands and Voices Expo
So this weekend was the first big convention for AZ Hands and Voices here in Phoenix. After I picked up the kids from school on Friday, I dropped Skyler off at my best friend Shelly's house and Kenz and I headed up to Phoenix. We stopped by by sister N's house and saw her four day old baby, and her 2 year old son, her girls were off camping with their dad. It was so nice holding a brand new baby, he is sure a cutie pie. It made me even more excited for the time when Jermey and I will have more kiddos. After visisting for about an hour we went and spent the night at my mom's house. It was great getting to visit with her, she is such an amazing person. I am so lucky to have such a wonderful, loving mother. I pray that my kids will be as close to me when they are grown as I am to her. Anyways, Kenz and I got up early Saturday and headed over to the ASU Memorial Union Building where I spent the day learning about IEP's, FM Systems, bonding with other parents and professionals who work with hearing impaired children. Kenzie spent the day playing with lots of friends from her old school and we ate a yummy lunch together before my second half of classes. It was a great experience and I feel so blessed to have such a great support system there in Phoenix, my goal is to get a chapter of AZ Hands and Voices started right here in Yuma. We went back to mom's at 5pm and hung out and then mom and I watched a movie on Hallmark chanel and ate popcorn together. I love spending time with her. We went to church in her ward on Sunday and then headed home to our boys. They too had a fun weekend full of fishing and fun!
