Lets Play Catch-UP!!

It has been so long since I have blogged!!! I can't believe how quickly time goes!

Here are some quick updates of everyone in the Hansen home...

Kylee just started 5th grade!! What??? She is 10 years old going on 20!! Kylee doesn't LOVE school, but she has made some good friends and is liking it okay. She is insanely smart and learning so much. She is my life-savor! She helps out so much around the house. She is so good with her siblings. She makes me laugh daily and I love being with her and talking to her.
Tyler started 3rd grade. This is the best grade in my opinion. They learn so much and so many new things at this level. He enjoys school and is kinda the class clown. He has his daddy's brain and is reading and spelling way beyond his grade level. He loves to play soccer and had his first game on Saturday. He is so full of questions and has the most vivid, lively imagination of anyone I have ever met. He is so obedient and patient with his sisters and baby brother.

Baily is in 1st grade. She made the transition from half day Kinder to full day school very well. Her and Tyler are in the same class and are doing well together. The Charter school that my kids go to is a Montessori School, and they have uni-level classes 1-3 and 4-6. I LOVE Tyler's teacher and knew that Baily would also thrive in her class. Baily is my sunshine. She is constantly coming up with new ideas. She brings so much hope and happiness to our family.
Malia is 3. She will be starting a neighborhood preschool in 2 weeks and she is very excited. Malia is quiet and well mannered, but also very imaginative and silly. We are having a fun time having her and Dalin at home all day. She mostly keeps herself busy watching Dora, coloring or playing dress-up.
Dalin just turned 1!! I really can't believe this! Wasn't he just born?! Dalin is the glue to our family. He is our shiny red caboose! He is so adored by us all. There isn't a laugh, smile or giggle that goes unnoticed by his parents or siblings. He almost fell off the bed the other day and I grabbed his leg just as he was plummeting off. The other kids heard me shout and all ran in to see what was wrong. We were all gathered around him and his scared whimper immediately turned into a glowing smile. He was so impressed with all of us watching him. He felt like a rock star!! He is on the move and is crawling everywhere and exploring everything.
James was just called to be the Elders Quorum President in church and was excited (that may not be the right word??) about that! He is still plugging along at the IRS. It is not his dream job, but works hard without a single complaint to provide for all of us. There could not be a better husband, father or man in all the world!

I am doing good too. The best I have ever been! I am loving being a mom! I find so much JOY in this role. I am also working hard on building my doTerra Essential Oils business. It is a newly found passion of mine. These oils are amazing and are blessing our lives daily. I am teaching classes and sharing them with people AND making some money as I do it. I LOVE it!!! If you want to learn more about doTerra's Essential Oils click here, or send me a note. I would love to teach you more and help you find ways to take care of yourself and your families health needs with these natural, 100% pure oils.
