I have a moment so I thought I’d write a recap of the past few months.

We went to Spokane over the kids spring break – it was a nice time with family. We went to Lake Couer D’Alene for a little bit. We went to parks. And basically hung out with family. My mom was in the hospital for a couple of the days we were there so we saw her there as well. Things are o.k. now.

In June, Benjamin and Ella turned 6. We had a combined birthday party with another set of boy/girl twins that were born 2 days after Benjamin and Ella at the Mountlake Terrace Swimming pool – that party was with our Parkwood Elementary friends. That was a lot of fun! We also had one at our house for our non-Parkwood friends. That was a lot of fun as well.

The twins finished up kindergarten. I took a picture of them on the last day and compared it to their first day and they certainly have grown!

Over the summer, Benjamin will be starting baseball through the YMCA and also taking a soccer class through Shoreline Parks & Rec. Ella is taking swimming lessons at the Y and taking the same soccer class as Benjamin. Nicholas wanted a mom and child swim class but it was already full. Not sure if we’re going to sign him up for anything until he develops more of an interest in things.

At this time of this writing, I have an annoying cold that I hope will go away soon as I’ll be heading over to Spokane next Friday for a cousin’s wedding. I can’t wait to see my family! I’ll just be going on my own as they requested that no children come. It’s o.k. – we’ll all be going over to Spokane in August for a family reunion (but on the other side of the family) so they’ll see everyone then!

And that’s about it for the time being.

And now, I’ll do a recap on all of the books I’ve read since my last post on that. That will probably take a while…

Because I couldn’t think of anything else that started with H that I felt I had something to say – how about an “about me” post?

I’m Heather.

I’ve been married for nearly 15 years to Jon.

I graduated from West Valley HS in Spokane in 1991.

I graduated from University of Washington in 1996 (BA in Political Science and Psychology). I took a year off then went to law school at Seattle University – graduating with honors (yay me).

I have 3 children – Benjamin (born 2007), Ella (born 2007) (yes, they’re twins) and Nicholas (born 2009). We used IVF to get pregnant the first time as we had been trying for several years with no success (and no, it wasn’t stress so please don’t say shit like that- IVF was rather stressful too, FYI). We ended up getting pregnant on our own with Nicholas.

I had a blog called Desperately Seeking Baby that described our time going through infertility and parenting afterwards.

I’ve been working in the legal department of a major company since 2002 (technically 2001 as I started as a temp).

I like to read – though I feel I’m a late bloomer in that respect as for a long time, I didn’t read hardly anything at all except what was assigned to me in school.

I have two cats – Oliver and Sophie – both kitties will be turning 9 this year.

Today marks 10 years since I married Jon on that hot August day. It’s amazing it’s been 10 years. It’s amazing what has happened in these past 10 years – some highs and some lows. We celebrated the highs and managed to get through the lows. Happy anniversary, Jon! It has been wonderful being married to you!

We’re going out to celebrate tonight then tomorrow we head out to Spokane for a visit. It will be more interesting to be there this time with one walking child and another child rather close to walking. I hope my parents are prepared! I hope we are too!
