Christmastime is here....
We are all decked out for Christmas! As many of you know, we recently moved....again. I guess we just love change! We have a cute, little house. Sadly, most of our decorations are going to stay in their boxes, due to the fact that we have no room to put them all out this year. That's okay. It's less to clean up after Christmas!!
I realized the pictures of our boys were pretty old, so I've updated them, with the exception of Wally. With him being away for the year, we don't have a recent one. No worries...he hasn't really changed much! Probably after Christmas I can update his.
I'm hoping to keep the blog more active. We will see how that goes! LOL! I keep trying, but failing. I should probably go back to the journaling things I was doing before. That way at least something gets written! Again...we will see what happens!

It has been super crazy here in the Bond household. As much as there has been going on, I haven't really felt like blogging. Mostly because I feel like I say the same old thing all the time. I talk about school with the boys, soccer with the boys, etc. I'm sure everyone gets tired of hearing about all of that! So, I will just give a quick update on what's going on and we shall see how it goes!
Wally (19): Has been home from college for a while now. To earn money for his upcoming missions, he is working at McDonald's and delivering newspapers. He will be leaving in January to serve in Milan, Italy! We are super excited at this wonderful opportunity! Temporarily he has been in the community theatre, but this is his last weekend, so hopefully he will start catching up on some sleep!
Pokemon King (14): Just started public high school a few weeks ago. Sadly, he got a late start due to a move, but he is fitting right in. He's thinking of joining the German club. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to do soccer this season. He couldn't try out for the school team, because we weren't in the district yet and the local soccer group didn't have enough interest for the select team and the recreational team plays on Sundays. So, he's pretty sad about that. We are hoping to get him in indoor somewhere soon.
Dinodude (11): Soccer, soccer, soccer! That pretty much sums up Dinodude's life. He joined the select team so he has 2 practices a week and games on the weekends. This weekend is the final tournament until Spring. Other than that he is currently in 6th grade homeschool and doing pretty well. He's a big help with his brothers as well.
Rocket (7): He, too, plays soccer. His soccer is like the select team only they call it the academy. Rocket's practice is the same day as Dinodude's and the same place, so that works out extremely well! His soccer skills have improved so much since he started. We are very proud at how far he has come and grateful we decided to do the academy instead of the recreational.
Chaos (4): Is still very chaotic. He just started playing soccer this season. He is a mini-Dinodude. Soccer is definitely his sport. He knows what to do and how to do it. It's like he's been playing for years. Well, I guess he has!
Bond and I have just been cruising along. Working, schooling, transportation, etc. Kids just keep us busy, but at least we stay out of trouble!

Since it's Relative Friday, I'm going to jump and shout that....
WALLY IS HOME FOR CHRISTMAS!!!
We picked him up from the airport on Wednesday evening. It was so awesome as we pulled up and there he was...sitting on his suitcase! I almost couldn't believe my eyes! It seemed like years, but also hours that we saw him last. He had some excitement trying to get here. First, he missed the first bus, so he had to get on a later bus. His directions seemed foreign to the bus driver, so the bus driver told him he should get on a train. So, he gets on the train, but shortly after realizes he left his ipod on the bus! He calls the bus company and they tell him he has to wait 24 hours. Wonderful! Not too much longer he gets a call from the guy who found his ipod! Yeah!! Only in Utah, right? So, he's going to send it to him. Then, he gets on his final bus to take him to the airport. On one of his rides, some lady starts talking to him like she's known him for years! Smile and nod....smile and nod! He gets to the airport with 4 minutes to spare! As he's approaching the terminal, the airport people are yelling at him. "Wally!! Hurry up!!! We've been waiting for you!!!" I guess they knew he was the last passenger and were cheering him on! So, he made it safely home!
As soon as we pull up in the driveway, 2 people approach us and it happens to be 2 of his friends from high school! Wally is extremely surprised! They came in and stayed for a while to catch up. I'm not sure how long they stayed, though!
Yesterday, he hung out at the high school visiting his friends and teachers. Then, later for the chorale concert and the tradition of Steak 'n' Shake afterwards. It's so nice to have him home...hopefully he can make some time for us, too!!
