The kids are great. Aria is completely walking now. She falls down occasionally, but gets right back up. She is totally over the crawling phase. Stephen is awesome too. I was able to take him to a playground today, just the two of us. Aria was napping, so grandma and papa stayed back with her. It was so fun to run around and play with him, and give him all my attention. Usually I am carrying Aria around and pulling wood chips out of her mouth. We climbed the rock wall together, raced down slides, and pushed each other on the swings. It was really great to spend some quality one on one time with my little man.
I don't want to jinx it, but there is a really good possibility that I could be moving sometime in the next couple months. Sooner than later would be great, but whenever it happens I am ready.

Who says you can't ride an ATV in a pretty party dress?

I am officially "working the floor" tomorrow with a "buddy." I basically have to go through a whole skills list and show that I actually know how to do things like change diapers, transfer people, and push wheelchairs around. LOL, there is more to it than that. The real challenge will be keeping all the residents straight and getting the routine down. I am going to be a float between all the areas of the facility so that means I have to learn who 150+ old people are. It will be quite the feat since they all look the same (wrinkly, white hair, and smell funny). I can't wait to get up and get two kids out of the house by 6:05 am everyday. Wish me luck in the morning.

Today went great!! Except for the part when Stephen had a diarrhea accident. Both kids ate, napped, and played awesome! I couldn't be happier. Stephen didn't even cry when I left (he was eating breakfast, so he was distracted), and Aria was a little whiny. My part of the day was extremely long and boring. I was so close to where the kids were that when the teachers took them outside, I could hear Stephen yelling "I see you!" Any every break I had I got to peak in and see how they were doing. I love it!!
Like I said last night, Aria is walking so much better. I was able to get some video today. Its not the greatest since I was by myself. Maybe tonight when LeAnne gets home, and the rest of the kiddos are settled down we can get some better video.
