Happy Girl + Sorensen Quarterly Review

4.04.2018


Jordan...
... is working hard. His company has a big deadline coming up and the work has steadily been increasing the last few months/weeks. He is enjoying working with the young men in our ward and is keeping himself busy and productive!

Corina (ME!)...
... is looking forward to Spring and warmer weather. I've been so happy to spot a few cherry blossoms across town the last few days and it feels like I'm about to emerge from a dark winter and into the most glorious time of year. I am looking forward to doing some fun things with the girls this week, while Reagan is on Spring Break, as well as a little mini getaway this weekend. I've been loving my new calling with the Cub Scouts and the opportunity it gives me to have something that is mine to work on, as well as the chance to meet lots of new people in our neighborhood.

Reagan...
... is blowing everyone's mind with the fact that she's getting ready to start Kindergarten in the Fall. She just finished a full season of ballet and is gearing up for some summer swimming lessons. She loves the water. She still loves to play with her little princesses, doll house, and legos. She is getting really close to reading and knows lots of "power words" and the sounds of almost all of the letters. She loves being read too, can't live without a story before bed, and thinks it's just about the funnest thing ever when we read a few stories while eating lunch. She is full of energy, optimism, and passion and truly seems to love life.

Naomi...
... is almost three! About last November she decided to potty train herself which was fantastic and so different from the experience we had potty training Reagan. She had a few hiccups while we were in Hawaii and a few weeks back in pull-ups when we came home but is back on board and I'd say fully potty trained. She also gave up the binky (a while ago) by herself which was also very different than our experience with Reagan. She jumps around when she's happy or excited and loves to help in the kitchen as a "baker," "breakfast maker," or "cooker." She has perfected the tantrum and can out scream just about anyone. She has quite the sophisticated palate for a two year old and loves to eat pistachios (and can open them by herself) and will give almost any food a try (including artichoke this past weekend).

Our house...
... is still a work in progress, although the projects are at such a great spot right now. We have reached a stopping point upstairs (now that almost everything is redone) and are gearing up to start finishing the basement. We will be starting with quite a bit of work on the furnace (turning it 180 degrees and moving it over about 10 inches as well as getting basically all new ducts), followed by digging out some window wells. I can't wait until the whole project is finished (and our *tiny* house is basically doubled in size)!

Our yard...
... will hopefully yield us some tasty veggies from our garden this year. After a year or two of not having a garden we have decided to jump back in the game. In Layton we often had lots of wildlife (deer, raccoon...etc.) visiting our garden so we are hoping to have a bit more success at our new house. We will hopefully be adding a few other necessities to our yard this summer too, like a shed, and maybe a playhouse or trampoline for the girls.

Travel plans...
... are on hold until after Jordan's big work deadline. After our crazy adventurous year last year I am definitely feeling the itch to go somewhere fun sometime soon. It is killing me not having a trip to look forward to, or plan and research.

Not much else to update on, and so thus concludes the (very sporadic) Sorensen Quarterly Review.



^^Such a happy spot in my house!
