Long time, no blog :)

Wow, it's been a crazy 6 months! We've just been going and going and going. I'll catch you all up here and then add some pictures later. In February I started doing the school choir again. That's always a lot of fun! March brought a much needed vacation to St. George with Tracy's sister and brother. We stayed in a hotel and swam and hiked and had a really great time! We also celebrated Jarik's 9th birthday. We didn't do much but he got a new bike and helmet so he was a happy camper!

In April we celebrated Tiaree's 11th birthday. I can't believe she is already that old. Next year she starts Young Womens :( April was a hard Mommy month for me. I also registered my baby for Kindergarten. Not cool at all!

May was a whirlwind of choir performances, soccer games and end of year preschool stuff! The choir performance was amazing! I love, love being able to lead them. They are great singers and performers :) Soccer is always so much fun. It was such a cold, rainy spring that we had to postpone so many games. We had a make up game of a make up game of a make up game!! Preschool ended with graduation. I can't believe that my last baby graduated preschool this year. It was a fun, kind of melancholy day.

June I helped with end of year activities at the school like field day and a 3rd grade water party. We also celebrated Keighlee's 5th birthday. She also got a new bike and helmet and she took to riding a bike like she'd been doing it forever! We also got to go to a Mormon Tabernacle Choir concert. It was a preview concert of their 2011 Eastern States Tour. It was amazing!! I love listening to their tour music :)

Also in June the girls all got to go with their daddy to a daddy daughter campout. They loved it! Jarik and I went on a date to Chilis :) It was a lot of fun just me and him. We also got to go to see the fireworks show at Taylorsville Dayz. I love seeing those every year. It's such a fun part of summer!

So far in July we've had a wonderful 4th. We went to the mountains with my mom and dad and Cait and Sam and we just stayed there all day. It was so nice and relaxing! That night we went to Tracy's sisters house for an awesome, and loud, fireworks show! I have never seen so many fireworks in one place! We've also played in the water a ton, built forts in the front yard and stayed up late having movie nights. So far this summer has been a lot of fun!

Also this month my little sister Caitlin is going to have a baby! I'm sooooo excited to be an auntie again. Baby Abbigale is due next week. I think I spelled her name right! But probably not :) We gave her a baby shower on Saturday and that was a lot of fun. I still can't believe my little sister is going to be a mommy! So amazing and exciting!

One of the funnest things I've ever done I did on July 2nd. I did a 4 mile "Dirty Girl Run" at Wheeler Farm. I was with a group of awesome ladies from my ward. I surprised myself and actually kept up with the runners. We sure got muddy and dirty and it was so much fun! I would love to do another one!

Well now I'm going to attempt to add some pics. Hopefully I will be able to!
