6-month update

Pretty has been 6+ months since our last entry. I get annoyed when people don't update their blogs yet I can't seem to get to my own. I have to say that procrastination is one of my major strong points/down falls. I work best under pressure so that is why it is one of my strong points. You all know why it can be a down fall-things may not get done. And since I hope to have this baby any day now, I need room on my picture card. So, most recent to oldest since the 1st of the year.


Rhett's Preschool Graduation
Rhett attended Miss Lesly's preschool this year and he LOVED it. He went for 2.5 hours on Monday and Wednesday morning. There were 10 kids-8 boys and 2 girls. He made some great friends-too bad they won't go to the same kindergarten. Austin also loved it because it gave him some one on one time with Mommy. Here are some pictures of the graduate. He wasn't real thrilled with his hat.

Soccer Season Ends (YAY!)
Bekah and Rhett both played soccer again this spring. It was their 3rd season playing and they have improved so much. It was a little rough on me since Neldon works on Saturdays-especially when they had games at the same time at different fields and it was usually at Austin's nap time and my pregnant belly was getting bigger each week. Rhett channeled his inner Beckham each week and was a major scorer on his team. Bekah rocked it at defense/goalie.


Girls' Weekend
So finally after almost 16 years, my group of girl friends from high school (minus Katy G.) got together for a much needed weekend of fun. We ate way too much, laughed way too much, stayed up way too late, and had so much fun. We need to make this an annual tradition! It was like we picked up where we left off all those years ago.

Easter in St. George
My parents were at my Grandpa's house is St. George over Easter weekend so I took the kids up there. We colored eggs, went on an Easter Egg Hunt at the park, and spent some great time with my 94 year old grandpa.


Death Valley
Rebekah was on track break for a few weeks in March. After spending so much time at home with each other and going a little stir crazy, I decided we needed a little get away-even if it was just for 24 hours. My family used to go to Death Valley National Park (it was just a national monument then) when I was younger and since it is only 2 hours away from us and the kids had never been there, we got in the car and took off on an adventure. And the ghost town of Rhyolite was nearby, we started our morning out there.


I didn't take many pictures these months because my camera battery died and in the process of moving, I couldn't find the charger. We spend a lot of our time unpacking and trying to settle in. Neldon spent a lot of time digging up the old, dead plants in the yard and getting new ones planted. Some day, we will get grass in the backyard in place of all that nasty rock. We love our new house! Maybe someday I will do some before & after shots but not now. This post is long enough.

So, that pretty much covers it. Now I can make space on the memory card on my camera to make room for our baby brother. He is due to arrive on June 9th and boy am I ready (I think)!
