Other recent pictures...

We have gotten to play with Hailee and Cam a lot lately!! Riley and Hailee even had their first sleepover at our house this week. Unfortunately I didn't take pics during the sleepover, but I have some from a different day!
Don't mind my girls hair!!! It's not done in ANY of the photos in this post. oops!!
Izzy was "stuck" in her kitchen. She didn't know how to get out. She was crying for me but when I saw why, I ran for the camera and she smiled :)

Izzy napping :)

Riley napping. This is a rare sight...she doesn't nap anymore...but this was taken the day after the sleepover. She was tired!! Missed out on about 4-5 hours of her normal sleep that night.





Camryn!!

Such a cute pic of Hailee.

Too hard to get all 4 kids smiling and looking at me!

And here is a pic from a recent bloody nose. Both our girls are like Travis. All 3 of them get bloddy noses that are pretty bad. I never have. I think I had like, one bloody nose my entire life.

KINDERMUSIK!!

The girls started their four week Kindermusik camp and it has been a hit! I get a break NO KIDS (6 hours a week)!!! and the girls love it.

Izzy was SILENT the whole way to Kindermusik the first day. She was nervous and excited!! Here is the video I took of her before I took them in!

REAL SALT LAKE

Anyone who really KNOWS Travis knows he loves soccer. He grew up playing and when he can find the time, he still plays. Well, living in Utah has some perks. One of them happens to be there is a MLS (major league soccer) team here. And they rock. Last year they won the MLS cup. I think that's what it is called...in case you don't realize, I don't know a TON about soccer, but I know enough that I find it fun to watch.
We have some friends (old soccer friends from Rexburg days) that frequent the Real Salt Lake games (that is the name of the team here). And they invited us to go to the season home opener back in April and we have been hooked ever since. When we went in April, we didn't know it was going to happen, but David Archuletta sang at half-time!


Sorry about the lame photo...That is David singing on the jumbo-tron screen thing.

I have a video of him singing....but its too large a file to upload here and I'm so tech-retarded that it would take a long time for me to edit it down.

Well, this past week RSL were playing the LA Galaxy...who they happened to play and beat for the title last year. So this game was sort of a big deal. And we decided we needed to be there. So our friends the Schanz family came down from Idaho and went to the game with us again! And THIS time, David COOK sang the National Anthem and then put on a concert after the game. Pretty sweet. I didn't know that was happening this time, either. We have picked awesome games to go to. Not just because of entertainment, but because the team tied or won.

Yep, RSL beat the Galaxy 1-0!!! It was awesome. Especially since that lone goal was scored in the the 82nd minute or something like that (it was near the end of the game).






Sorry about the pics being in reverse order. Blogger=headaches video

Anyway, we are going again tonight "for Father's Day" ha ha. That's what I am telling myself. Because we couldn't really afford a gift...so this is it! We got a good deal on four tickets from someone John works with and so we are taking the girls and Rachel (Skyler's fiance) with us!!! GO REAL!!!!!

The End of the School Year

Well, Riley's first year at American Legacy Montessori Preschool ended on Thursday. Luckily there is Kindermusik camp starting next week for four weeks. But then I am sort of hoping that July and August fly by because Riley LOVES preschool!!! And I am hoping when I send both girls in the fall, Izzy loves it, too!!

Thursday there was a little graduation at Miss Rebecca's house and we had a potluck while the kids played. It was lots of fun! Riley with Miss Rebecca. Each kid received a certificate with their photo saying they had completed "Year One" of the Montessori curriculum. Super cute!!
I happened to be sitting in the perfect spot when the kids came out. Riley was the second one!! Lucky!

The kids wore dad's white dress shirts backwards for graduation gowns. How cute!

Izzy can't make a normal face for pics, I guess!!

video The kids sang several songs that they learned throughout the year.

Can't wait for Year Two. And the FREE time I will get each week in the fall! Happy summer for now though!
