It's been like a month since I have really given a super good update. Well, here's to a long post. :)
My niece Clara turned 4 this month and I helped her mom throw her birthday party. It was minnie and Mickey themed and so fun! Her mom is amazing. She made all the hats, made Clara's shirt, and her husband made the cupcakes! 4 is such a fun age. They are mostly past their tantrums and have so many questions about life and it was fun to hang out with all these little cuties.
My older brother Lance graduated from UVU this month too! I am so proud of him! It was fun to go support him for all his hard work. He graduated in Health Administration. I hope they move to Florida so we can visit them and always be on vacation there hahaha!!
Then, sadly, my cousin passed away so my mom, husband, me, and my brthers Adam, Jess, and Lance all went up to Idaho for it. Although it was the saddest weekend of my life, it was fun to roadtrip up to Twin Falls together. It had been a really long time since all of us have been together traveling. It brought back a lot of memories. I hated that trip but loved it because I loved seeing all of my cousins and catching up. That side of the family is so amazing, and I love them all soooo much. I got to know them all better. I felt like I was getting to know my family all over again because it seems like the last time I saw them all was when I was a little girl (well, like in junior high or something, so a loooong time ago) and now I feel like I can get to know them as an adult. I hope to visit them all very soon again.
We also planted tomatos, squash, and are going to plant some peas and carrots this week.
My little sister is graduating from high school tomorrow. I can't believe it. I went to her last concert the other day and I almost cried. I am so sad. No more concerts. No more performances to watch. :( Her and I have basically had all the same interests growing up. Dancing, singing, piano, photography... but I bet she will do more with it than I will. She is off to BYU in the fall (good for me because she will be living like 5 minutes away! YAY!) and will prob study history with a minor in dance education. Not sure though. She will be on the BYU Advanced Tap team and I hope she does something with her voice. The picture above is at her last concert, and she is the one with the white jacket. They were singing a group number.
I got my cast off and am now going to physical therapy. It's slowly getting better. I can move it a lot more now and I can pick up a glass of water. It was really really swollen for a few days but it's starting to go down. I really hope I can get back to work in a week or two. I am getting really bored.
What's been going on with Kev? Well, he has been doing great. He got an A in his english class last semester and is now taking a surveying class. It's Mon-Fri from 7 AM to 10AM. He is working so hard! He got 88% on his first test which was the class average. That's pretty good. He has been working at CR still too and I feel like I hardly see him haha! We both can't wait until it warms up so we can go camping and do all these fun outdoor things. He locked us out of our apartment again last week. Haha. He also has been going on bike rides a lot and doing about 16 miles every saturday on his bike in under an hour. He is so awesome! I just love my husband. I can't believe it's been 10 months so far. We really want to take a vacation somewhere HOT and fun so we are looking at cruises right now. Anyone want to come? We would love it if we had friends or family to go with.
What's next for me? The musical Theater class I have been teaching has their final show next week. It will take a load of stress of of my back, let me tell you. I am so excited though for it. I want more students. PLEASE if you know of someone who would be interested, or if you want your kids to take it, it's in Payson at Lifehouse Performing Arts Academy and it will start back up again at the end of August. It's 35 dollars a month, and every child gets a solo. I have 13 students right now but I want like 30 students next year so I can have two classes of it. Let me know if you are interested in it..
Anyway. That's it for now. Hope that brings us up to speed. Oh, I am still making bows and headbands and I need to post a tutorial so all of you know how to make them. Sorry it's taking me forever. You would think that after having two weeks of boredom I would have done it by now......
