Jett just had tubes put in his ears on Tuesday morning. I was worried because he had to get put to sleep. It actually turned out to be no big deal. We only had to wait about 15 minutes in the waiting room and then when they called us back he wasn't even crying. I was so thankful that it went so smoothly.

So we get home and Jett, who hasn't walked more than 10 steps at a time, walks from the family room all the way to my bedroom. I am beginning to think that his ears were hindering his ability to walk without falling over. What a great idea to have this done. If you ever have to deal with a child who has a crazy amount of ear infections, don't hesitate to have this procedure done. It is a piece of cake!!!

Today is Drake's 5th birthday! We are going to our first Rodeo tonight. I thought it would be a fun thing to do since we are not having his actual birthday party until Saturday. We are becoming true Utah rednecks! Well not really, but it sure seems like it seeing that we are going to a Rodeo!

New to this!

K... My sister in law Katie has one of these so I thought it would be fun to have one as well!

Life is good at the Jackman home. It is getting pretty hot here in Utah. We go to the pool almost everyday. All of the kids are already so dark and it's only the begining of summer! We went to this fun little spot yesterday at Thanksgiving Point. It was a big Noah's Ark that shot water out so the kids could get wet. It is hard to find inexpensive things to do with all 4 kids that isn't a huge hassle. This was a good thing (if I may quote Martha).

Jett walked a lot yesterday. Everybody is always so surprised that he isn't walking already. All my kids have walked between 13 and 14 months, so he has til July 10th to get really good! I am a lazy mom and really don't want my kids to walk any sooner. I hate having to chase after them!

I started a jewelry business about a month or so ago and it is going really good. The shows are really quite fun and I have made some good money out of it. I also have more jewelry now than ever and have a hard time choosing what to wear. That is actually fun though! Rick is totally supportive which is good because he has to watch the kids while I go do the shows. If you feel so inclined, check out my website,, I feel so professional with a real site!
