Well October has been a busy month. We have gone to the Zoo twice and Baby Zuri (elephant) Is way too cute! They also have a baby giraffe. I still don't know its name but I will get it. My Birthday has been Great this year! Its been a long time since I have been this happy on my Birthday. I have really enjoyed this month I have got to spend a lot of time with my nephew's.
On to Austin well we have been talking to the District of his school. They are wanting to move him to a Learning Center. Its the same as a regular school but it has more breaks and they will be able to work around his behavior. So thats been going on threw the whole month of October. We have finally have came to a decision and he going to be moved I really don't want to move him because it will take so long for him to like school again. So we talked about it to family members and with a group of people involved with Austins IEP and he is going to be moved next week.
Thanksgiving was fun we went down to Nathan and Lindseys house and had a very yummy dinner!!!! We got to chat with family and Grandpa Jasperson was there and it was so nice to see him! After dinner the kids got to watch a snake eat a mouse. It was interesting. Then I even held the snake it was so soft and I actually really liked it! Thanksgiving was so relaxing and it was fun to be with friends and family. I am thankful for everything that I have!
Joshua has had some fun with my parent that past few weeks. Well as we all know Josh is into EVERYTHING!!! Well he tried to poisen my mom and dad. Apparently he got into the COMET and spilled it all over the floor in the kitchen it was a mess the floor was lite green. Well the mess got cleaned up and we came home the next thing i know it that i am getting a call from mom and dad saying they are sick because they found COMET in the SUGAR. My dad drinks his coffee in the morning and he likes a lot of sugar in it. Mom had some cereal and had some sugar. So Josh almost killed his grandparent ugh what am i going to do with this kid.
Another one of Josh yes i did say another story. This story is older but its a goodie and i have pictures. Well I had put Josh down for a nap and I need to get ready to go to school so i get into the shower. Well when i get out Austin tells me Josh it putting dog food under the door. I was like what we dont have a dog. So i proceed to go into the bed room and oh my goodness DOG FOOD CITY!!!! We at one time had watched a dog and kept the dog food and it somehow got stored into Joshua's cloths closet. well all I can say it that I am thankful for a shot vac. I could only upload a few pics my comp is acting funny.

We are doing really good on potty training he is going on the big potty. He is testing me very much and trying to see how much he can get away with. So lots of time outs and talks right now.

Well, Austin had his 5th Birthday on July 25. We had everything ready to go. Well we get over to fire house park and we were there for about an hour and all the sudden I hear Josh screaming! I look over and he is on the ground when 2 secs before he was on top of the playground. Colton a very good friend of mine was helping josh and went ot grab him and missed and josh fell to the ground. So Josh was OUT OF IT. He was not acting himself and his leg was shaking so I decided to take him to the ER. He would not walk so they did an x-ray of his hip and leg and he fractured his tibia fibia bone. So they put a splint on him and send us on our way. We go back down to the party and its DARK now but we cut the cake and open presents and Austin had a ball so i am very happy about that! He got a batman lair and when he opened it he goes WOW thats TOTALLY AWSOME! way too cute!
I cannot belive Austin is now 5 years old! He stats Kindergarten on the 24th of August I cannot wait I am so excited for him to go! I was trying to get josh in a preschool but i have decided to wait one more year on him.
Thats all for now

I did it! I made the Deans list at Stevens Henager College. I have really enjoyed going to school. I have made a lot of new friends at school. It has been a very new experience. My GPA is now sitting at 3.87 WOOT! I have never earned such good grades in my life. I hopefully will be able to keep this going and be able to graduate Oct 2010.
Austin and Josh are full of it as usual. They keep me busy!!! While I am at school they get to go see either Grandma and Grandpa Barrett or Grandma and Grandpa Burke. They love seeing them and really enjoy the time. Wow this year I get to go School shopping for Austin. Scary thought. Joshua is really talking now and testing me. If he gets something and you want it back he will run from you giggling but he knows if he dose this its a time-out. He still dose it though.
THE 4TH of JULY
We had a lot of friends there which made it more fun! There was Jeff, Brittanie, Jocelyn, Lexie, Me, Austin, Joshua, Traci, Kyle, Carlos, Shelby, Jake, Jackie, Kyle, Sara. We had a pinic and had marshmellow fights, played frisebee, soccer, went for walks and enjoyed each others company. Afterward we went to eat at Dennys and then went home.
Its been a pretty good couple of months and I have enjoyed the time with my kids, family and friends.

This last weekend I went to Milford all by my-self. It was a ton of fun and I enjoyed the "me" time. I helped as much as I could. In return they fed me and gave me a room to sleep in. I think that was a pretty good deal!! I have a ton of pictures but it would take forever to go threw them all. So I will only post my fav pictures. While I was down there I did miss my kids a whole lot but it was a very much needed break. I have now made some new friends that i consider to be very close to me!! I would go again in a heart beat!!! Ok enough babbling here are the pics.
this is Beckys car and she let me have a ride in it!!! I wanted to drive it sooo bad but its her baby!!! It totally was one of the best looking cars there :)

Josh has decided to start potty training on his own now. He went pee in the potty a few times already and he POOPED once too. YAY JOSH! He is talking a lot more now and it is so fun to be able to communicate with him more! I also love how Austin and Josh never forget about each other they make sure to take care of one another.
Austin is doing great he can now write his name which is so fun to see. His last day of Preschool is May 19, 2009. So we are excited for that and also very sad because MY BABY IS GROWING UP!
We have had the pleasure of having NEMO come and visit us! He is a toy fish that has been doing a lot of traveling around the country and to Canada. We get him for three days and then we send him off to a new destination. The kids love him and we have been taking a lot of fun pictures I will post them on Monday cause thats when he has to leave :(
More pictures to come!
We also attended Luke and Lisa Barretts Wedding last weekend and It was a really nice ceremony. The food was GREAT! and The decorations were beautiful. The boys looked so grown up in their tux's.

Well that was it for a 4 Hour doctor appointment ugh.
If any of you forgot what kind of tumor I have have here you go.
Signs and Symptoms Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) is encountered most frequently in young, overweight women between the ages of 20 and 45. Headache is the most common presenting complaint, occurring in more than 90 percent of cases. Dizziness, nausea, and vomiting may also be encountered, but typically there are no alterations of consciousness or higher cognitive function. Tinnitus, or a "rushing" sound in the ears, is another frequent complaint. Visual symptoms are present in up to 70 percent of all patients with PTC, and include transient visual obscurations, general blurriness, and intermittent horizontal diplopia. These symptoms tend to worsen in association with Valsalva maneuvers and changes in posture. Reports of ocular pain, particularly with extreme eye movements, have also been noted.

Austin is doing awsome in school. They went on a tour last Thursday to Dicks Market and they gave him a bakery hat he just loves! He also told me that the "The freezer is cold and made me shiver" He is so funny now days! He is also doing very well at accomplishing his goals in his program that he is in. I am so proud of him!
Josh is such a happy kid he always has a smile on his face. But boy he can get into things lately!!!!! He is also a cuddler. I have started potty training him already im not pushing him but when Austin goes potty he is so interested in what he is doing so we put Josh on the little potty. He has not done anything yet but he thinks he is such a big boy when he is on the potty.
CAUGHT RED HANDED
See what i mean what a STINKER!
I have a Dr. appt on Thursday for my tumor so i will give a small update that night on whats going on. I have been feeling really good the only problem i think i will have with them is i have gained weight so there going to be on my case about that.

I start on the 20th and i cannot wait!!!
Then Austin has finally done it!!!! HORRAY he is POTTY TRAINED!!!! He just decided to finally go. I am so SO SO happy! The funny thing is, when he has to go he will go yelling down the hallway NO NO NO! cause he is trying to hold it. I hope he learns not to wait till the last sec to go soon lol.
Josh oh what can i say about him lets see he is a little stinker!!! He has started this thing where he dose not like to wear cloths to bed. So by morning he is completely naked grrr. So now i have to do nightly checks to see if he has taken his cloths off. I hope this ends soon. So the only pj's i can put on him is zipper up jamies that have the button thing on top he still has a hard time getting them off.
