Catching up...

It's been quite some time. A guy from Danny's work passed away unexpectedly and they considered it an on duty death, so it was the whole fire funeral service. It was an extremely unfortunate event, but such a crazy emotional thing to be a part of. The funeral processional, I think that's what it's called, from the church to the cemetery, they SHUT DOWN the 605 freeway and on every overpass that we went under, other fire departments had a truck or engine with their crews out saluting as our firemen drove by. Don't want to go into too much detail about it all, but it was quite an experience.

In the midst of all the funeral stuff, Danny had a fire/police motocross race. He did  AWESOME!! Won all four of his races and brought home some gold medals. It was so fun! He hasn't really raced much since we've been married, so it was fun watching him and brought me back to our dating days. =)

Had a fun, not really, thyroid scare for a couple days. Went to the dr for a physical and all that good stuff and she thought my thyroid felt enlarged so she scheduled me for an ultrasound. Needless to say, it was an emotional couple of days until I finally heard back from my dr that everything looked great. My dr thinks my hormones are off so we'll be testing those and hopefully get some answers.

Been enjoying summer and having my Taylor home with me every day! =) We had a super fun day yesterday and have some pictures to share. This week we have VBS(vacation bible school) and I'm actually Taylor's leader and we are both SUPER excited!!!!

Gosh.... much is going on right now. Not sure how to organize all my thoughts so this may not flow as well as it should. Taylor has her last day of kindergarten tomorrow...and then she'll officially be a 1st grader. Can't believe it. That went by WAY too fast. School has been interesting to say the least. Won't go into much detail about it all, but she had a great year. She absolutely LOVED her teacher. What a blessing she was. She was just the perfect teacher for Taylor's first year. At church on Sunday they gradute and move on up to the next grade. =( In the midst of finishing up the last couple days of school we've been planning and packing for our 1st trip of the summer to Danny's parents place at the Colorado river. Unfortunately, a guy that Danny works with passed away yesterday, so we are postponing our trip. As most people know, the fire dept is your family. There have been a couple incidents that have happened within the department where I've gotten to experience and see the "family" come together and help each other out. It is so amazing and I feel so blessed to be a part of it. So you can only imagine in a tradegy this big, that this "family" is really gonna come together. Danny and a bunch of the guys from the department are going to go to the family's house tomorrow to do some yardwork and whatever else they can help out with. So if you think of it, keep this family in your prayers. This guy was ONE month away from retireing and was looking forward to spending more time with his 17 year old son and 14 year old daughter. He also had just been remarried recently. So crazy.....

Anyways, so we'll be hanging around....we have a fun surprise coming our way, so I'll share what it is when it comes. Yes, we are crazy. That's all I have to say. But that's what makes us The Nausha's. =) Danny also had a motorcycle race(s) coming up on Monday and Tuesday, but he probably won't be doing that anymore...depending on the funeral and stuff like that. But he'll be racing in the Fire Olympics in July, so that'll be fun. I always enjoy watching him race.

Seems like a lot is going on these days...good and bad I guess. My friend Alicia who is involved with a few orphanages in Haiti told me the other day that she's trying to raise money for this one orphanage because there aren't enough beds and some of the kids have to sleep on the cement and the rats are getting them. Breaks my heart. I told Taylor about this because we pray about the kids in Haiti every night and she literally started crying. She said it made her so sad. What really trips me out, is when you look and find Haiti on the map/globe, it is SOOOOO close to Florida. And to think of what is going on in Haiti and it's a 2 hour plane ride to Florida....Alicia also said that she heard our church is sending a group out to Haiti in September or October. So I'm going to look into that....Taylor asked if she could go with me. =)

Anyways, LOTS to be thankful for as always. As hard as it is to hear about stuff like that, and people dying and people having cancer and everything else that's going on around us right now, it really helps put things in perspective. It continues to help me focus on what's important. I know that a lot of people think I'm crazy, my family included, when I say that I want to homeschool or figure out some way that I don't have to send my kids to school everyday from 8-3, but we just love being together. In my mind, life is too short. I want to spend as much time as possible together as a family....anyways, this could be a whole other post for another day. Also, for those of you wondering, no, I'm still not pregnant. And it's ok. I had a pretty rough couple of weeks, that lead up to my period of course, but I'm doing fine. Just want to make sure I'm keeping it real. Even though most of the time I am at peace with the whole situation, I do struggle. I felt like I was just kind of sitting around waiting. Like I couldn't continue on until I knew if I was going to get pregnant or adopt. But life doesn't always work like that. I'm choosing to move on for now. Trying to keep busy and enjoy the life I have right now and not worry about hanging on to the crib and changing table that I would SO LOVE to get rid of if I knew we didn't need it, and the double jogging stroller and the sit'n'stand stroller. I guess that's part of my cleaning out and simplifying. I either want to know I'm gonna need it or I want to get rid of it. But for now, I don't know. And that's ok. It can sit there and take up space for a little bit longer. Gonna leave you with a few pics.... =)

***i came downstairs to this one morning from Taylor. yes, my 6 year old knows how to make coffe***
