Today my baby met her Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Cammack. She is sooooo excited to start school. My little girl is all grown up, almost. I'm not just a teacher anymore...I'm a teacher with a child going to school now. I'm excited too.

Ok, so I've been HORRIBLE about updating this blog lately. I guess motherhood keeps me busy among my other callings in life. Updates on the family....Jake is still working as a Network Administrator, hates the commute but it pays the bills. He's redoing our sprinkler system in the backyard before it gets too hot in the Arizona summer. He just got a new calling in church as the 13 year old Sunday School teacher. I, Alisa, am in my 13th year of teaching. This is my 7th year teaching 2nd grade, but am excited to be moving to 1st grade next year. Looking forward to a challenge. I have two new callings in our ward, well one is just an "assignment" which is to be on the Girls' Camp Committee, and my official one is Cub Scout Committee Chair. It's quite funny because when I got released as Primary Secretary I said I would never accept a calling in YW or Scouts, well after several months of having no calling look at me now. I'm actually excited for some change in my life. Zowie is just growing sooooo fast. Just recently Jake and I were talking about how much her vocabulary has increased and how much of a talker she has become. She has made leaps and bounds since she has become a part of our forever family. We love her so much! She wants a baby brother or sister so much and prays daily for them, without our mentioning it. I asked her one day if she asked Heavenly Father when her new baby brother or sister was coming. She said, "Yes, he said "Behold, be patient."" She loves having the missionaries over for dinner, loves loves loves her chickens, and loves singing primary songs. She says that one day she's going to marry Peter Pan, in the temple. She says the cutest things.

Our ward had a Breakfast with Santa. We had yummy pancakes, sausage, doughnuts, muffins, and bagels. It was very nice. They had several teams doing a gingerbread making contest. Zowie helped of course......eating the candy. She does that very well!!!

Our chickens are getting bigger!! One of our Rhode Island Reds started laying eggs!! Jake and Zowie were taking a nap. I went outside to check on the chickens and found our first egg. I was soooo excited that I woke Jake up and showed him. When Zowie came down from her nap, I told her about the egg. She got dressed and went outside herself to go check the chickens. She came back inside excited and yelling, "Mom, I got an egg." Sure enough, there was another egg. She loves checking to see if there are eggs. We'll see how long that lasts.
We bought almost 41 acres of land in St. Johns. We've never made an investment like this before and it's exciting!!! There are large Juniper trees, but no pine, bummer. Oh well. It's at 6000 feet elevation and it gets some snow in the winter. A nice place to get away in the summer.

A gal in our church who lives close by teaches dance classes for the little ones. So we decided to put Zowie in it and see if she likes it. We want to expose her to many sports and activities including music (my husbands area) and see what she likes the most. Miss Lindsay teaches her once a week for about an hour. I love that she teaches her ballet, tumbling, cheer, and tap all in that same hour. It keeps the kiddos interested with their attention span so small. So far, Zowie seems to enjoy it.
