Lacey & Brooklyn Mather
Jessica, Brooklyn, Lacey (I always thought my girls were pretty tall for their age, but standing next to Brooklyn shows otherwise)

About a week before the girls field trip I went with the 3rd-5th graders to Chase Field to watch some cool science experiments. Here is Jarom and his best friend Nate.
Here is one of my favorite Baseball Players, Louis Gonzales, and the other guy is Darren Sutton who announces for the Diamondbacks.
Not a great self taken portrait of Jarom and I. I look like I have 3 chins - nice.
Joel didn't have any field trips this year, but I snapped a few pictures of him playing on the computer. This is his new favorite thing. It's kind of unnerving to know that my 3 year old can operate a computer.

Well I just finished up my last semester at Estrella Mountain Community College. I have nothing left to do but move on to ASU. Which was my plan until they hiked up their tuition. You get more bang for your buck if you go full-time. I can't go full-time until Joel is in school all day. And thanks to the budget cuts, he won't be in school all day until first grade, which isn't for 3 years. So I guess I am only a furlough for three years. Oh well - it's better than trying to juggle 15 credits around preschool and driving between the West Valley Campus and the Tempe campus. Maybe in three years they will have more of their classes on-line. That would be helpful.
