For.the.LOVE I have been busy! How sad that my last post was so.dang.long.ago.
We have just been busy with our ticket business, busy with softball (Sarah is the "slugger" hitter-meaning she bats 4th), Rachel has been doing amazing at Track, the other two girls LOVING they get to go to gymnastics every friday for an hour.
Ive got FOUR school projects going on (i hate school projects)-two are due monday, another the following monday and the last beginning of May-shoot.me.now.
Jons brother Mark's wedding is next Saturday-we'll be in SD that weekend.
Spent 9 days at our family cabin which was sooooooooooo nice. We literally did NOTHING. We dont have cable tv in our home (havent had it for over 2 or is it 3 years now???) We watched all 19 episodes of Storage Wars and tons of Cake Boss.
Rachel did Youth Conference. They nicknamed her "Animal" A) because Aunt Kristi made her a zebra print pioneer outfit and B) because she is a WORKHORSE. There comes a time in the trek when the men go off to war and the women are left to push the and carts UP a hill. The leaders said Rachel pushed their cart up then RAN back down the hill to push another up then RAN again to push another-she did this FIVE times! On the last one she was LITERALLY shaking they made her stop and her "pioneer dad and brother" came down the hill and carried her up. They ended up giving her a priesthood blessing as well. What an awesome experience for her. She said there was NO PLAYTIME or FREE TIME it was just work, work work and MORE work. She had fun though. When she came home she said "I want to hear the toilet ACTUALLY flush (cuz they had portapotties) and then take a two hour shower, and then sleep and not wake up till school starts again" -success!?
All in all life is being R.E.A.L.L.Y good to us right now. We are immensely thankful at this time of our lives. We are all healthy, we are all happy, we are all in a good place-and that feels wonderful.
