First off, Coen is growing and getting smarter every single day. We actually had him tested because I felt that his speech was not where other kids his age is. So I had this program here in Orem come and test him. When they test things like speech, however, they test other things like intelligence and hearing and vision. Well not only did he pass everything, but his intelligence was off the charts. Can I tell you that this makes me the most proud and the most terrified I have ever been in my life. First, I am super proud of my son. I knew he was smart but according to the lady that tested him, she said that she has never seen a kid test so high. This makes me terrified as well. I have never considered myself a smart person. I struggle with school and I struggle to keep up with intelligence conversation. I start to get very anxious when I get around Dale and his law school friends. So to have a kid that tests off the charts for intelligence makes me nervous. I never want to be considered stupid by my kids. So I guess we will see what happens.
Coen is also very active. He keeps me hopping all the time. One of his little troubles that he made is in the pictures below. He colored my couch with a black marker that took me the rest of the night to remove. I went to the bathroom for two minutes.
Another one was I went to do my makeup and came back five minutes later to find Coen naked and standing on top of the microwave. He is a trouble maker and I am learning to keep up. It is the hardest job in the world, being a parent. It is a good thing I love him so much or I might have given him away by now. :) But how can you not love this face?
Here are some pictures from Adylee's first birthday.
Dale had his first job interview for a law job this week. It makes everything very real that we will be out of law school in two months. It is a very scary thing trying to figure out where we should go or what we should do. It is a very serious test of faith. I am trying to put my trust in the Lord but it is very difficult at times. I just want to know where we are going so I can make plans.
School keeps me busy most days but I am getting restless with Utah. I am trying to figure things to do with my kids that will keep them busy during the day without destroying my house. This snow has kept us inside and Coen is going stir crazy. So if you have any ideas please let me know.
Hopefully these next two months go by quickly so we can be around all our family again. We ask that you all keep us in your prayers that we find a job so we can have somewhere to go after law school. We would be forever grateful to all those who pray for us.
