It's been chilly. For May. Silly weather. I liked this picture of Hannah at the eagle project last weekend. We have never had a horse of our own...but we love them.
Mother's day was Sunday. It was a nice day. We didn't have ward council so we all got to go to church together. Hannah made a very delicious dinner and a beautiful raspberry lemonade cheesecake.
Steve loves this chair.
|fun Mother's day surprise that came in the mail.|
Grace went to the mathletes yesterday. She tied for first place, won $50 and a huge trophy for her individual efforts. Her team also won first in the team division. So happy day!! Yay!! Last year Ethan came in 2nd in individual and 1st in team so that made it all the sweeter for her. They are a little competitive in the intellectual prowess dept.
Ethan: invited to play on an elite soccer team for a tournament this weekend. They are short players and he's an invited ringer. Yay!! on the flip side he said something mean to a girl the other day. Not really meaning to hurt her feelings but it did. Part of growing up but still mortifying (to me) and a not so awesome moment for him.
Hannah: sheesh. So much drama right now. Some of it awful and hard. So two thumbs way down. Leaving for college soon! Yay and exciting. We're all over the place with this one. We'll see. 17 is always tough. They are on their way, the very edge of adulthood and it's a stretching process that is usually, always?, painful.
Jenna: going on a backpacking trip, she is excited and that is super fun! Having some health issues. Not so fun.
Sierra: thinking about moving. Where will she go? What will she do? The whole world is open to her, and she's smart and capable. But that's hard. Too many choices is hard.
Dani: well, she's a mom :) She's a great one, and a good wife and good primary worker and lovely, fun person and she's got her own little set of ups and downs and crazy with three little monkeys living in her house. Which is fun and two thumbs up for me:)
