Been a while

Well i totally suck at blogging right? I started this blog to keep my family back home in the loop. But i never remember to update things here. I will try harder i suppose. So lets recap of all the things that have happened since my last blog in December.

Janurary Chris went TDY to Vegas. How unfair! I was still stuck in the land of wine and pasta while he got to go and have all the american foods that i haven't had in almost 3 years now. Yeah i was jealous to say the least.

February he returned home and told me all about all the amazing food he had...haha And at the end of February we picked up our Volvo XC90, which we had ordered back in November. This is my dream car and i'm still in love with it and feel so happy every time i drive it.

March I went to Carnival in Venice with some friends to celebrate mine and my best friends birthday (we have the same birthday no wonder we are such good friends). I have a blast and have many memories that i will cherish for the rest of my life.

April was sad. That best friend of mine ended up leaving Italy to move back to the states. Things have been really boring here with out her (did i mention she lived 3 doors down?) But i still talk to her online. Thank god for the interwebs or things would really suck.

Anyway, for the past month i have been pretty busy. Kairi is still in ballet she also does baseball. So really the only days of the week where we have nothing going on is Friday and Sunday, Zach also has "baseball" but its not really baseball. I'm really not crazy about the way the AYP does things here, I so wish we were in the states where he would be in tball or something instead of this fake baseball thing. But oh well i suppose. Next year he'll actually get to do tball and then we will be on our way home!

So a lot of girls i have came to know here are all leaving or have left. It makes me excited because i know we are just that much closer to being gone from here for good. Italy hasn't been ALL horrible, but this base just isn't as great as it used to be.

I started taking classes again, i'll eventually get a degree. haha. I'm only like 11 classes away. I'm just taking 1 class at a time so i don't get overwhelmed like i did before.

New additions to the family, we now have a kitten living in our house. he's pretty cute, Zoey and him are starting to get a long better. She tries to clean him and he lets her but when shes done he ends up cleaning himself. he's really frisky. I've never had a kitten before. We always get cats, so its a new experience and i have to say i cant believe how much energy these little balls of fur have.
