Joe's test results!

Joe called me today from class and he says, " I got my results from the test and the good news is that I can re-take the test in a year." I said ARE YOU SERIOUS?!? And then he said "nope, I got a 96!"

I was upset that he tricked me but I should have known it was a trick, he's always tricking me.

Anyways, a 96 is a great score, good job hun!

We also heard that he might be getting 5 extra points for being a veteran, we will see if that is true or not. A 101% would be nice!

Joe drove to the Hilton hotel by seatac airport this morning to take the DREADED at-sat test. Let me tell you about this test. It is pretty much an I.Q. test that the FAA gives everyone to see if they have the right "mindset" of an Air Traffic Controller. If he doesn't do so well he can re-take the test in a year to three years, depending on your score. Why is this so scary to me? I have little kids and we don't have three years for joe to get hired. This test directly effects the future of our family. I have faith that Joe will pass it, but it still is scary! We have been told by a couple controllers that joe has the perfect mindset for being a controller because he has a great ability to multitask. I really don't know how he does it. He can be "saving the Galaxy" on his x-box machine,as he puts it, and have a full on conversation with everyone in the room. That really what controllers have to do. His (hopefully) future job is one big video game ( but this game actually has people's lives at stake). Anyways, I know joe will be fine. He started the test at 7:30 and I have no clue when he will get the results back!

Big Boy.

Today is a big day for our big boy Brady. He has been wearing underwear all day and he actually told me that he needed to pee twice. He has never been able to hold his pee, I usually have to tell him to try and potty. I haven't told him once to potty today! Brady and I decided that he was done with pull ups because he's just way too old for them! Good job brady!

Sad to see him go..

After much thought we have decided to give Thor to a new home. After he ripped up my bedroom carpet and the kids room carpet and made my little apartment smell like pee I had enough. His new owner sent me these pics of him with his new sister puggle addyson. He has a big yard and a playmate to wrestle with all day. I think he will be much happier with his new family. We will not be owning dogs for a long long time, no matter how cute they are!


My mom and I took the kids to see The Lorax. This was Connors first time seeing a movie at a theatre. Connor was scared of how loud the music was at first but then had the best time. They loved the Lorax.
