There is not one excuse for my mia-ness lately...there are many excuses.

1. I am trying to teach my students at school as well as be a student taking my last 7 credits.
2. I have my college comps test haunting me as well as my finishing up my research project.
3. I am trying to get ready for a baby, while taking care of one.
4. The camera is no longer on the is a goner.
5. I am pregnant.

Thank you blogosphere for cutting me some slack. ;)

I will be back soon...better than ever.

Yes I can!

Iowa State Fair fun!!!

I have so many great memories of the Iowa State Fair growing up that it is a ton of fun to take Dixon and do all the must do's at the fair.

To my shock and surprise it was Adam's idea to head into the fair one week night this past August.

We were so happy to see all of our carney relatives...Grandma Kay, Aunt Maddy, Aunt Tami, Uncle Lance and a whole slew of cousins.

Dixon was not quite sure what to think of Clifford...;)

Our little Hawk with Floyd.

Since Dixon usually refuses to ride in his stroller (he would rather run like a madman) we use it to haul all of our stuff...and Dixon loves to push...:)

Haha...the sign says snake on a stick...:)

Dixon with our cousin Zach.

Look Look!
Sometimes second cousin Zach looking a little creepy pushing a stroller...;)

When I zoomed in Dixon has a terrified look on his little face...:)

Little Buddy's favorite part was the Snakes Alive.

I am still having a hard time adjusting to going back to school.

I miss my afternoon nap, and miss spending all day with my little buddy even more...

I still need to post pics from the Iowa State Fair...but lately I like to post the pics a month after the fact. ;)

I am starting 2 new classes this fall and *hope* to graduate in May.

We still have not agreed on a baby name.

Dixon still has the rash on his poor little face. We are going to the dermatologist next week.

Dixon does somersaults. Everywhere. Hardwood floors. Off the bed. On the sidewalk.

Adam is still home on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this year and Dixon goes to Grandma Gayle's on Monday, Thursday, Friday.

We have been spending lots of weekend time out at the farm and at Grandma Wendy's.

There will be pictures camera is on the fritz and being held together by duct tape, after the bandaid fell off.

Right now we are watching Wubzzy and are excited for the big game tomorrow.
