Don't hate just because I don't blog everyday.....

Okay sorry it has been a while since my last blog! I have been getting crap from my family like, "told you!" and "Hum...it's been awhile since you last blogged!" Well I have been a little busy. I am so excited though life is slowing down a little bit and I soon get a long needed break from work. The official summer count down is at 8 days and I am only going to be at school for 7 of those days! Yahooooooo! I am lucky to have this job who else gets 3 months out of the year off? Travis always tells me to not complain because I do get those three months off but you know after nine months it is nice to not have to deal with all of the "extra details" that come with being a teacher. A lot of people think that you just go at 7:30 every day teach a lesson and then get to go home as soon as the bell rings but there is so much more than just giving an assignment telling them to read this or watch that. Don't get me wrong I love teaching and I love the students but sometimes I just don't want to be there I would rather be with my little girl!!! At least I have my little sister and little brother-in-law there at Kearns with me. My brother-in-law, chad, he is so cute but he is so shy he never talks to me at school but I have two more years to get him to the point where he will not be shy and just talk to me. Ashley, my little sister, she is a senior so I only have a couple more days with her...I really don't know what I am going to do without her there. I am going to go off for a minute because I am so proud of her. Can I just say that she is an amazing person and she is going to do so much with her life. She is beautiful, smart and talented in so many different things. Here is a little list of what she can do: she sings in the choir, she is a student body officer, she is on the dance company and she is an officer in dance company, she played soccer for four years, ran track two years, basketball for four years, she plays the piano and violin, she has an amazing sense of humor, she took AP, honors, and con-current classes as well. She just amazes me and I love her so much.

Okay last part to embarrass her I was the senior class advisor this year and last Saturday it was senior ball. I want to tell you I am so glad that it all worked out I was a little nervous...they decided to do a dinner/dance and just a couple days before we had only sold about 15 tickets but by the day before we had sold enough to at least break even and it all worked out well. But anyway Ashley looked so beautiful here take a look!

she went with her friend Bryce Parkinson and she had a lot of fun. But I just have to comment that I was so glad that not only was she beautiful but her dress was nice and modest...oh man Travis and I were amazed with some of the girls dresses to say the least some of them almost should have been standing somewhere else...yes I mean the street corner.... instead of at a high school dance. But there were many girls who were dressed in beautiful dresses and they were all very modest. It was fun and we had a blast making fun of some of the kids dancing with the other faculty and staff at the dance.

You are so cute and you will have plenty of time to blog this summer. I think Ashley is amazing, we are lucky to have these babies in our families, even if they make us look like slackers.
