So Proud!

After much research, fasting, and praying Dustin and Lyndsey decided that Chiropractics wasn't the right path for them. Although they both still support and agree with Chiropractics Dustin just came to the realization that he would find more satisfaction in his career as a family doctor or perhaps a pediatrician. It was not an easy decision, one year from graduation or 6 more years of school but they new it was right and were soon announcing that he had been accepted into Sint Eustacia's school of medicine. They leave in a month.....WOW!

I am so proud of Dustin for following his dreams and being accepted into Med school. I know that he is going to make an amazing MD and help a lot of people through out his career. It is not easy to leave your Chiropractic education to start over in medicine but he did it. He is not a quitter he his being true to himself and his family and I couldn't be more excited for him and his family as they start out on this new and wonderful adventure.

It was very fast and all though we were all so happy for them I will admit I was a little sad to realize that I would soon be losing my partner in crime. We spent the month celebrating, eating out, hitting up all our favorite Portland hot spots, and sucking up every minute we could together.

Here's the boys in their last Portland tub time together:

We are going to miss you guys so much Thank goodness we have so many wonderful memories to keep us company as the Poyterman family comes to and end. Love you guys!

A day of Love!

I know that Valentines day in not a Major holiday but I love making a big deal out of anything I can because I think it makes the boys childhood that much funner. This year they found fun little treats on their beds after a morning wrestle with Dad.

After that we invited Beckam down for pink pancakes and some decorating. I swear these boys could have taped paper hearts to the window all day long, they loved it!

We also had a few of our little friends over to enjoy the valentines day fun. We baked up some delicious sugar cookies, got out some tasty decorations, and let the kids go to town. I don't think anyone was very successful with their afternoon naps after all that sugar.

After making up some valentine collectors the kids got to pass out their valantines. It was so cute to see them all wandering around putting things in each box while keeping and eye on what was being placed in their own.

It was a great day full of sugar, friends, and lots of love! The boys were so tuckered out that they headed to bed half hour early at 6:00 which gave me plenty of time to whip up Aarons favorite dinner before he got home at 7:15. We usually don't do much for this holiday as a couple but I thought it might be nice to share a nice sit down meal just the two of us. This is as fancy as it gets when your students, ha ha ha!Oh, I also tried out this new cheese and herb biscut recipe, AMAZING!!!!
