So it has been a crazy summer! We really put the miles on the Xterra! And we loved it! It has been a long time since I last posted. So long that we have already moved!
Congratulations go to Alex and Bethany! And Luke and Alisha! Great life changing events for each little family! Luke and Alisha moved closer and Alex and Bethany moved farther away!
As for us we are still pluggin away at school and so happy to be here!
Papa and Grandma Nelsen came for a visit. We loved getting to spend time with them! And Justin has a new found love of fishing! Little Brent also has a love for fishing now too.
Brent is now home-schooled. We don't know how long, but definitely not until we are in range of a good school. He is even reading 2, 3 and 4 letter words.
AJ just learned how to ride his bike and that is his new obsession. Today we went at least 4 miles, I thought he would never stop! He is starting preschool at the college next week.
Joshua is walking, and even running a little. He gabs a bit enough to let you know who it is he wants and the direction of what he needs. He is also an endlessly determined climber!
Fall has already begun in Rexburg! But Rexburg does have amazingly wonderful Fall weather!
Oh and Misty and Ben have blessed us with a new niece named Katie McDavitt!!!! We can't wait to meet her! So jeaolous of those who are there!
Oh and we enjoyed an awesome visit from Malissa! Come back soon, we love ya!
As for here and now it is all school for all of us and a little college football too. ;)
And of course I am trying to create a website at www.nelsenfamilyhomeschoolk8.org I hope it works out. I plan to build on it a little at a time including a blog backgrounds portion and some adsense or affiliated marketing. I am still learning a little at a time and I am trying to build a graphics design team for the backgrounds.
I here if it works I could make some money, but I won't hold my breath. For now I am learning.
I call this post "give it a try" because that is what I do! With some help, talents, and prayers it may work out! And that includes Brent's schooling!
Well love you all and hope to write more as soon as I can!
Brent has all 13 articles of faith memorized! He got to go bowling with Dad!

Yes! We finally have a yard! But no fenCe so now I have stray animals and stray kids! But being grounded seems to help a little for Brent, and AJ well so far we just have to keep an eye on him.
We love it out here already. The house we are renting is for sale so we have had one showing already and we got accidently locked out by the agent when we returned to the house. No big deal just inconvenient. LOL.
At least we have no one banging on my floor just because my boys are active. ;)
We are in the midst of our 1 week break between semesters. Something is better than nothing- right! ;)
We are also very excited about the upcoming events: Fred's graduation, Luke's graduation, and Alex and Bethany's wedding!!! Yay! I love to travel! Well, it is a little more challenging with the boys... but I still like it!
It snowed again today! Can you believe this weather.... I can, but I don't want to!
Well, hopefully it will get nice soon.
Hope everyone enjoys the photos. I don't have Easter ones up yet, but I'll work on it. The boys loved hunting eggs in their own yard. It took AJ a little instruction, but he got the hang of it. In fact, he hung around Brent while Brent opened his eggs, but refused to open his own.
At the store we went to their egg hunt and Brent got so many that when we asked him to give to the little kids who didn't get any like AJ (who stood at the end of the isle and cried because he had tried to sneek past the grocery girl so many times and had to be told 'no' that he must not have realized it was finally ok to go). Well, it was nice of Brent and I was glad he did it! I'm sure it was hard for the other Mom's since Brent looks 6. They asked me if he was really 4yrs old and I said yes, but it wasn't until they asked that I realized how much bigger he was and he is going to be 5yrs old next month LOL.
Brent braved his kindergarden shots. And the doctor said he is just above the 99% for hight for his age. AJ and Joshua are still just above average on size. Joshua is 20lbs! Still no teeth. He can crawl and pull himself up on things. Brent can count to 100. And AJ is trying to put sentences together, I love it when he tries to sing 'itsy bitsy spider'.
And I should say we love having Mom and Maria with us! They help with the boys and the house work, and they are just plain fun to hang out with!
Well I'd better skat. Love you all!
