Time with Dad

Aaron is now in quarter 7 of 12 (or possible 13) so definitely on the down slope! Things just keep getting busier and busier for our hard working Dad and we seem to see him even less now than we did before! (how is that even possible!?!?) He is still at school 11 hours a day while averaging 2 hours of homework a night and 3-6 hours on Saturday mornings, BLAH! I do not know how his brain can soak up anymore info!

Poy has been an assistant scout master for the past year which means he means he attends scouts on Wednesday nights and goes on their overnight camps as often as possible. Our scouts go camping every month but Aaron usually only makes it to every other camp. Aaron is now the first counselor in the Young men's presidency as well, which allows him to spend more time with the Young Men and get to know them better spiritually. He teaches every Sunday and has gotten to do Baptisms for the dead twice in the last month.

For fun Aaron and Dustin have joined the softball league again this year. They play one night a week and have had two practices since the season started last month. Unfortunately 2 of their games have been rained out but things are looking up as we head into the sunny season! Their games usually don't start until after 8:00 which means the boys are in bead and we can't go cheer them on but they have an early game on the 26th that we can't wait to watch.

He has the Craziest schedule and doesn't get to just hang out much so when he is home the boys are ALL OVER HIM! From the minute he walks in the door Miles is his shadow. He will follow Dad anywhere and everywhere and once he catches him he starts to climb. He makes his intentions clear, he wants to be in Dad's arms and no where else! I have never seen more of a Daddy's boy than our little Miles, he basically has a meltdown every time Aaron leaves the house.

AJ also missed his Dad and can't wait for him to get home.
He always asks, "when is Dad coming home?"
"He'll be home for dinner buddy."
"No I mean when is Dad coming home for long and long days to play with me?"

We all miss him but we do our best to make the time we do have together count. Here are some pictures of the boys trying to get the most out of Dad's time at home.

Our bathroom is no longer a private place!

"Dad are you in there?"

We also gave Miles his first hair cut, as much as we loved the mullet it was time to end the madness.

Hi Lacey, What cute pictures of the boys with Aaron. AJ and Aaron are so adorable together shaving. I love Miles' haircut - he will seem so big when we see him on the long weekend. I can't wait until we are there - it's going to be so much fun to see all of you again.

Joel is scout master too. Sometimes just takes so much time. Quite the adventurous group if they go out every month! Wowsas! These hubbies are so busy with school - it gets better when they are done, right? Cute blog btw!
