We went on a 2.8 mile hike on Memorial Day to Hermit Falls. There are some pretty deep pools to jump into and swim in. I only jumped once. That was enough for me. The kids and Willie jumped and swam around while I took pictures. It was a super fun day! Even Strudel took a little dip. The hike was straight down and of course straight up back to the parking lot. The kids were all great hikers. It was fun jumping rocks and hiking through the lush forest valley.

About one month ago I went and got my hair layered. I thought it turned out too mushroomish so I came home and layered the sides and back all by myself. I know, I'm crazy. For the past month I pretty much wear my hair in a pony. Why? Because I don't know what to do with it. I style it and it looks weird. It looks very Jennifer Anisten 1993. I'm sorry, but that wasn't the look I was going for people. It's 2010. Any suggestions. This is the 11:15 pm air dry look. I really should be in bed. Good nt!

Zach was the peacebuilder for the month of February. He enjoyed soccer season of course and made several new friends. He is looking forward to cub scout day camp, boogie boarding, and our family vacation to Zion's National Park. He improved in many areas and had a really good report card.
Carina has become a reading machine. She is super fast at math facts, is a talented artist, and a great speller. She still loves Littlest Pet Shop and just made $7 at our yard sale. Yeah! More LPS she says! She looks forward to hanging out with friends, swimming, playing with her cousins, and going to the beach.
These two are buds. They get along so well. They are sleeping in their forts tonight. They always make me laugh and still enjoy cuddling. I love these sweet guys!

Maddie received two band awards this year. She was chosen by her peers as "Most Helpful" and was awarded the special director's award by her teacher for "Always being helpful, a person she can always count on, and someone who can unite the band to get the job done." We are so proud of Maddie! She had an awesome 6th grade year.
This summer Maddie is looking forward to her first year of girls camp. She has been working so hard babysitting to pay for it. She is also planning to visit her aunt and uncle and help with their baby. We love you Maddie! Maddie has grown so much this past year, in stature and maturity. She is a sweet and kind girl and a wonderful friend to everyone.

*Wesley shaking hands with Dr. Hacking (principal)
*Wesley being recognized as straight "A" student
*Wes with Mom and Dad (yes, I had been crying) Even though he appears the same height as me, he is indeed taller. He is 5' 6". I was in heels.
* Wes with his buddies.
Such neat milestones. It is so amazing to see our children learn, grow, and achieve. I am so grateful for my kids.I am so grateful for my family.

So, there's my bragging for the year about Wesley. But more than anything, we are so pleased with him because of the choices he is making. His choice in friends, activities, and hobbies. He is really developing into such a fine young man and we love him so much! We know Heavenly Father is also pleased when we make good choices and we pray that our children will always seek the Lord and listen to the spirit.

The Crew came in 2nd at the championship game. Zach was ok with it. He received a trophy and was pretty happy about it. He doesn't particularly enjoy having girls on the team because he says they don't try, but it was a good experience for him. He's crazy about soccer and can hardly wait to play at the middle school level. School's out and he's a 5th grader now. Big man on campus! I love this boy!
