The Petersen's Go to the Beach

So we finally made it to the beach this weekend! I was so excited to go. First of all, it was my first entire weekend off since I started working! I had a 3 day weekend, which is un heard of unless you request it. So we took full advantage and took our little family to the beach. We then celebrated my sweet (old) husband's birthday. He is only 4 years older than me, but when I say the number 35, and I still think I am in my early 20's, it just sounds so old!!! Here are some pics.

Backyard Fun

So, since my last post, we have pretty much gotten moved into our new home. (not so much new as it is 20 yrs old) It's been so crazy to move during such a busy and crazy work schedule that Shon and I have been keeping! Last week, we hardly even had a conversation. I am working days, and he is working nights. Me being on days has led to many more hours, which is bitter sweet. Shon hates his new schedule and I feel for him. He gets home around 4:30 am, I am gone to work before he wakes up. The girls get bored with whatever I set them up to do before I left around 9:30 to 10 am, so then Shon is up taking care of them. I get home about 10-20 min. before he has to leave again! And this week is even worse! I get to work 8 days straight with no days off. I am not looking forward to that. And for even more fun, my last day off was spent at Jury Duty! So here are a few pics of some fun in the backyard today and yesterday.

The Graduate . . .

So my little Punkin graduated from Pre-School on Friday. I can't believe it! She was so cute in her cap and gown and the program that was put on by all the kids was great. Very patriotic.
I have the first Sunday off in months tomorrow. I am not sure what to do with a day that is just for rest and staying home. We have been in our new house for a week now and have yet to spend one evening here on the couch yet. Hectic work schedules and being over at the old house to remove our personal belongings that seem to have multiplied. I mopped myself out of the front door today and am finally done taking loads home from there. Although, Shon still has to go and remove tons of trash bags tomorrow! I will miss the space that home provided. I will probably never live in a home that big ever again.

New Digs

I snapped this picture on my phone while I was coming home from the store. So we moved!! We aren't totally done and out of the other house yet. I hate moving! I don't know why we do it so often. I hope to stay here for a few years. We are back to Menifee, which is funny because it's where I grew up and went to Kindergarten through 8th grade! My cute little Hailey is registered to go to Kindergarten in Menifee now. What a trip. Wouldn't it be crazy if she got some of the same teachers!?? Any who, the new house is nice, a bit smaller than we are used to, but right near a lake and a Super Target, who could ask for anything more? The best thing about this house is the backyard. We love it, no pool, but landscaped very nice and tropical.
Work is busy as usual. About 3 days before our move, Shon was changed to working nights at his job! So we scurried around like little mice trying to find time to move everything and I had to change my hours at work to working days so somebody is here with the kids! (I don't trust Hailey to change McKenzie's diapers!) We are managing though. More when I can find my USB cable . . . and my socks for that matter!
