Our family is doing great we finally joined the ranks of the Mormon culture by upgrading to a not-so-mini van. It's a '98 Astro Van. We got it for dirt cheap and love the extra room. (You know us Tomseth's need extra room if we keep growing at this rate!) This way, we have no car payment which is good for any family. Jacob got a new (used) truck for work. It's a '05 chevy Colorado. He loves it and hopefuly his company will start paying for it starting next month. He got a promotion at work and we are so proud of him.Spring is here in Utah and it's beautiful! Blossom trees are everywhere! The kids are having so much fun doing 'spring' things. ie: planting the vegtable and flower garden, getting sod in the back yard, flying kites, and all the fun craft things they get to do in pre-school.
Easter was so great. We had many, many easter egg hunts. 3 to be exact. Thanks to Namma for the Easter package! My mom, brother and sister came up for Easter and we had a ton of fun. We had lots of yummy food and easter egg hunts. We also had an egg pinata that the kids made in pre-school and Ryan and Lizzy had tons of fun whacking that! Trevor just got to watch.
Lizzy is getting smarter every day and absolutly LOVES pre-school. Everytime we have a break in between school days, she asks me when we are going to have school again. She can write her own name, count to 15, identify every letter in the alphabet and copy phrases that she sees on milk cartons, books or anything else that has words on it. I find random papers all over the house of letters that she just jotted down from looking at things.
Ryan is still Ryan. He is FINALLY POTTY TRAINED!!! Yeah! I don't have to buy diapers for him anymore! He is so inquisitive about EVERYTHING and loves to play any sport. We got him a soccer ball and he also has a baseball and bat and loves to go to the common area next to our house and play with Daddy. He is so independent and doesn't always ask to do things. He just gets up and does them himself. I've got to keep an eye on him and make sure he hasn't gotten his shoes on and taken his soccer ball outside or make sure he hasn't gotten hungry and raided the pantry or my fruit bowl. He's such a love and loves to make his little brother laugh.
Trevor is getting bigger all the time. He's eating baby food now so I'm sure he'll just keep growing. He's the happiest, shiniest little boy and loves to interact and smile at anyone that will talk to him. He absolutly adores his older siblings and looks for them everytime he hears their voices.We miss you all so, so much and will see you in July for John's wedding! We love you!Love,The Tomseth Famliy
