We've been busy this summer!
It's been awhile since i've done an update so here we go-

I never thought I'd say it, but we are really liking it here in Goodyear, AZ.
I love this area SO much. 
We jumped right into our new ward and we were welcomed with open arms. 
It already feels like family.
David was recently called as Deacon's quorum advisor and assistant scout master.
He's excited to be more involved when he's done with school. 
Speaking of which, he has THREE more weeks to go till he's done with his masters program. 
He has literally been working his buns off researching and writing his finals papers.
He says he can finally start to see the light at the end of the tunnel but he's still keeping his head down and taking it all one day at a time. 
I can't WAIT to celebrate when he's done. 
I was called as the second counselor in the primary presidency and so far it's actually been pretty fun. I'm totally wiped out by the time church is over, but getting to know all the sweet kids in the ward has been so great. 
I'm on week 9 of my 20 week couch to half marathon training program!
It's going SO well. 
My momma bear convinced me to do it, so we are both training for the St. George half in November. I already know she's going to leave me in the dust lol. 
I'm documenting my postpartum health/weight loss journey over on my fitness account on Instagram (@bigmommaolsen) if those kinds of things are your jam. 
The kids and I spend most of our mornings over at the local YMCA. 
I get my runs in in the nice air conditioned cardio room and the kids play in the daycare. 
I've really enjoyed having that time to myself and I think it's helped immensely with not only my physical health but also my mental health as well. 
I mostly love that we've gotten a good routine down over the past few weeks. 
But that's all about to change because...

Remington's first day of Kindergarten is TOMORROW!
Technically this week is kinder academy which is just a bunch of half days to sort of jump start the kinder kids, but still, AHHHH!
He is so stinking excited, he can barely contain himself. 
David gave him the sweetest father's blessing tonight and It quickly brought me back to all the 'back to school' blessings my Dad gave us growing up. 
He carefully laid out his outfit, shoes and backpack.
I can't believe I have a school aged kid already. 
I thought I'd be more sad about it but I'm more excited for him. 
He going to learn and grow so much, I just know it'll be so good for him!
I can't wait to hear how his first day goes. 
Olive got accepted into a full day preschool program which starts mid August. 
We're still a little hesitant on how she will do but we will just give it a few weeks and then reevaluate from there. Her school requires uniforms and we picked those out this last weekend. They look so gosh darn cute on her! She picked out a sparkly unicorn back pack too. 
I'm going to have TWO kids in school all day. 
I don't know what the crap i'm even going to do with just Frances and Wolfe haha!
Olive's 4th birthday is coming up in a few days too. 
She wants everything princess/sparkly/unicorn/purple so we're going with that. 

Francie girl is talking NON-STOP.
Remember when we were worried about her delayed speech? 
She says things in the sweetest little ways. 
My recent favorite is how she says "look"
"GOOK momma, GOOK at me!"
It's so stinking cute. 
She love nursery and the Y's day care. 
She's a pretty easy going/go with the flow kinda gal when she's in a good mood. 
One of her favorite things to do this summer has been going to the pool. 
She loves to be in the water. 

Over half the blog posts this year have been about Wolfie boy so there's not really anything new to report there
Like always, he's growing up and changing too fast. 

and that's what we've been up to lately!
