It seems like I only blog about once a month so I thought I would get my May blog update over with already.
Isabel is about done with Spring Soccer. She has been in a tournament this last week. It has been FREEZING! I have no idea why Utah has to start soccer so early up here. Hello...can we please play when the weather is at least in the 60's? She and Mattison just started track season.
Mattison did the Hope of America Program at the Marriott Center. It's a big patriotic program put on by many schools throughout the valley. They do it over several nights...different schools, different nights.
And if you look really carefully at this flag you can see Mattison. She is on the far right, the second section of red from the bottom. Okay, you can't see her, but it's cool that she is in there.
Meg and I made it there to watch her. We were in the "nose bleed" section. We bought snacks from the concessions and took pictures of ourselves so it was good times.
There has to be some perks to being single. Here's one. And it was a really great one. I went on a cruise to Cabo...for a really cheap price might I add. And I do have to give out a big thanks to the mom and pops for watching the kids while I was gone. I'm totally going through a mid-life crisis and they are letting me. Here's some highlights:
*Only getting 15 hours of sleep in 5 days *Para-sailing *Snorkeling *Getting trashed by the waves in the ocean and getting sand stuck in my swim suit *Figuring out how to get that sand out...it is really uncomfortable (I did figure it out, but I'm not going to tell you how on this blog) *Ice Cream any time of the day or night *Dancing at least 4 hours a night *Room service--as many plates of food as you want! *Learning the Disco Dance on stage *Running on a treadmill on a big boat is not easy *Laughing until my sides hurt *Meeting some of the best people in the world!
I'm about a month late...but better late then never.
Happy 5th Baby girl!
Meg really wanted a "motorcycle" like her buddy "g's". We opted for the scooter. I decided that she looks like a little grandma on a jazzy scooter. The best part about it was that she was in a study at her doctors office and earned the money for her own birthday present by getting a flu shot and getting her blood tested. What a bargin for me.
Meg wanted a pinata at the party. Mattison and Isabel got in on the action of the breaking of it too.
Meg's biggest request was that we play Musical Chairs.
It was pretty fun party...I'm glad I have a year to recover from all those 4 and 5 year olds at my house.
Yes, I know. I officially stink at blogging. Some might even say it's genetic and I take after my mom and her lack of blogging (yes, my Aunt Grace called me on it). What can I say. It's crazy to work, be a mom, blog and have a social life.
So here's a little run down. Maybe later this week I'll actually download some photos to go along with this post. Right now I'm just too lazy to walk up the stairs and then back down and download pics.
I've been crazy busy with work because I am now teaching another class at school. I was long term subbing for a lady who came back in January. Then I had several other classes/jobs set up and then another lady went out sick so I'm covering her class for the rest of the year. Now I have some awesome 9th graders. Do you want to know how awesome they are? Here's some examples:
**They make me lists of movies that I should watch over the weekend. Examples include; The Hangover, Pineapple Express, Jacka$% 1 and 2, Superbad, etc. **They think I'm pretty "gangsta" because I'm divorced and they are ready and willing to "jump" my ex for me. They offered, I didn't even ask or give details of why I am divorced. **They show me their sweet dance moves and I show them the running man. We have a mutual respect for each others dance moves.
Meg had a birthday. That's right...my baby is five. I'll be posting pics of those soon. She is super excited to be a little bit older. I keep telling her she is still my baby though.
Mattison got some Converse shoes. She thinks they are "the coolest".
Isabel finished up with indoor soccer and is getting ready to play outdoor soccer.
We are all getting excited for a little Spring weather around here. Pulling out those flip-flops and playing outside a little more. My new Spring goal...actually blog a little.
