Changes, Changes, changes.. Holy cow, I feel like I have had a lot of changes in my life the past couple months. Between having a new baby, moving and Logan starting school it has all been a bit much for me. Holy cow, time is flying and my little ones are getting big. Logan started Kindergarten this year and Cache started preschool. It is making me feel old and sad that they are growing up. They are both at such cute ages right now. I had mixed emotions about sending Logan to school. I thought I would cry when I took her on the first day-but I didn't.. I think I cried enough thinking about it during the months before.. Anyway- she is 100 percent ready and was so happy to be there-it made me feel better about her being there. Since school has started I feel like she has grown up ten fold on me. She is more independent and secure with herself. It makes me a little sad she doesn't need me as much anymore. I would be lying if I didn't say it kills me a little to not know what she is doing at all times and to turn her over to the school when I have had her in my sight every waking hour of the day. It makes me feel better knowing that she loves to learn and loves being with her friends. She also loves her teacher. I just know things will never be the "same" and I mourn the loss of that. She is a sweet spirit and I hope she never changes. Cache also started preschool. It is a mom and me preschool group I am doing with a couple ladies in my ward, old ward too. He is loving it and always tells Logan "I go to school too. Just like you." I was concerned he would be bored and completely miss Logan being at school. I also thought he would demand my attention 24/7. He has done none of that and completely threw me for a loop. He has been such a good kid since she started school. He is perfectly content playing all by himself all day long. He gets his buzz light year out and cars and talks to them and goes into his own "imaginary world." Every day I can find him in the play room talking with his toys. It is really awesome and fun to watch. He can still throw fits at times-but they are more rare now and usually at night over dinner. During the day-he is so easy. He has also grown up a lot and helps me out with Payton. He loves to play with her and make her laugh. I think Heavenly Father knew that I needed him to be easy during the day because Payton takes a lot of my time. She cries quite a bit. Bless her heart, she is the sweetest little thing-but she has been a harder baby than my others. She is up a lot at night and loves to held all day-every day. She is definitely a "mamas girl," but I love her to death.. I feel like she is a little bit better than she has been over the past couple months-so maybe with time she will grow out of it. Anyway, I am loving being a mom right now. I feel blessed to have such good kids who teach me so much about life every day. They make me want to be a better person and better parent to them.  Anyway-here are some pics of Logan and Cache.    
Cache's first day of preschool 

 His preschool group. (There are 10!) Good thing we have an aid
 Logan getting off the bus.. I still can't believe she is old enough to ride a bus! I feel better knowing her cousins ride it with her.
 She started FUSA soccer this year and loves it. It took her a couple practices and games to get the hang of it-but now she is right in there being competitive. She even scored 2 goals a couple games ago. (the ice cream bribe may have helped with that one) I love seeing the determination on her face and the way her face lights up when she does something great. Who knows if she will stick with soccer-but I think its fun and its great to watch her learn new skills and how to play with a team. *I never knew she was a sweaty beast like me.. (This girl seriously sweats and smells like a boy when she is done playing.) Sorry girl-you must have gotten my genes.
