Off to Rexburg

James and I took another trip. This time we went with my mom and brother, Isaac. We went to Rexburg to see my sister Doranda, her husband Bob and their baby Tucker. It was my mom and Isaacs B-day on Friday and Tucker's 1st B-day on Sat. We had a party for all of them on Friday. On the drive we listened to the book "Twilight" on CD. I really enjoyed it, but I don't think my mom or Isaac did. It was a quick trip, we left Thursday morning and we home by 1:00pm on Sat afternoon. We had a good visit with every one.

Schools Out for Summer!

The kids are so excited to be out of school. Jarom made a CD of songs especially for the last day of school. This is his song list:
School's Out
Up all night
High School Never Ends
Like There's No Tomorrow
Youth Gone Wild
Summer Nights
I Wanna Rock
Let it Rock
Breaking the Chains
Wild America
It was a pretty good CD. I feel like I just got done with finals. It seemed like several grades could go either way, so we did lots of studying for finals. I know more about history than I ever have (well I have probably already forgotten what I learned, history isn't my thing). Amery and Jarom both pulled off straight A's! I am so happy for them. I am trying to talk Jarom into an easier schedule for next year. So far, I haven't had any luck. For now it will be the hardest he has had so far, and this year was bad. This is a photo of Evan with his teacher Mrs. Stone. I hope we all make it through the summer in one piece. Any ideas on fun, cheap things to do with lots of kids of all ages?

I need your ideas

I need music help. I really want family songs for our blog. Almost everything I can find is country, I want some variety, especially rock. Do any of you know of any good songs about family? I would love lots of ideas!

Evan's Turn

Tonight was Evan's turn to get the game ball. He did a great job at the game. He played catcher several times. It is so cute. The catcher gear is so big and he is so small. He also got to play pitcher one inning, he loves both those positions. Dallen caught another fly ball, up to $2. Both boys were great sports. The weather was aweful! It was rainy and cold, looking outside you would have no idea it was June. When we got there most of the team was there, but only a few parents. About 1/4 of the way into the game, we were the only parents left. Luckily I had a big winter coat on with a big hood.The pictures are from another game, better weather

Tonight was Amery's awards band concert. She plays the flute. They played songs from Titanic and Pirates of the Carribean. It was great. She also recieved an award for the most improved flute.

Hurray for Dallen!

Yesterday was a great day for Dallen. At baseball he caught a pop fly while he was the 1st baseman. Coach had promised he would pay anyone who caught a pop fly a dollar. I guess only 2 or so had been caught all season. Well at yesterday's game, I think the team caught about 7. Needless to say, it caught the coach completely of guard, he had to borrow a few ones. The second neat thing was at the end of the game. The coached gathered all the boys around and told them how important it was to be a good sport. He told of a boy who had given it his all when he was on the field and while he was waiting he rooted on all of the other players and had a great attitude. This boy was going to be presented with the 1st game ball given out this season. Then he said "and this boy is Dallen". We were so proud and excited for him. He was too.
