1 - Back to blogging! I'm blogging more regularly than I have in a LONG time, and it feels good to be back.
2 - Pixie's 4th grade Pioneer Musical. The students write the script themselves and work really hard in preparing to perform it for parents and other students. Pixie did a wonderful job, and played the mother in one of the main families. She tends to talk really fast, and really quiet, so we were a bit nervous about how she would perform. She was awesome. She projected her voice, and spoke at a speed that everyone could understand! We were really proud.
3 - I can FINALLY see sunshine, blue sky and my beautiful mountains! The inversion has been so horrible, and we finally have a series of storms moving through that are clearing the air! Halleluja!
4 - Wonderful friends and members of my ward family who threw me a baby shower, and showered me with love, and adorable baby girl stuff!
5 - Church basketball has started. Bookworm and Cowgirl are both playing and have played 2 games each, with 2 victories each!
Not sure if Bookworm is scratching his head or fixing his hair?
Horrible blurry action shot taken with my phone.
Cowgirl's number 4. This is her first time playing basketball.
6 - Baby Girl's car seat arrived yesterday! So now, whenever she gets here, they won't hold her hostage at the hospital - because I WILL have a safe way to bring her home!
7 - My boy Chris Wingert re-signed with RSL! 3 of my favorites were traded, so I was getting nervous. But then CW's contract was renewed and all was right in the world again.
8 - Bookworm brought home his 2nd report card of all A's. At our school we grade differently and grades K-8 do not receive letter grades. But since 9th grade goes toward your high school transcript, they are graded more traditionally so it will transition correctly when they move on to high school (which is 10-12 here). Really proud of how well he's doing.
9 - This month all 3 of my oldest performed together in a music recital for the first time. Cowgirl has switched over to the same piano teacher that Pixie takes from, and she has been working REALLY hard on a piece that is way advanced for her. It is the accompaniment for the Millionaire's Hoe Down that Bookworm performed for the school talent show. I shared that here. So Bookworm came and performed with her at the recital. And Pixie has just been taking lessons for a year and is the most diligent practicer I know! She was the only student in the entire group of performers that played each of her pieces without a single mistake.
10 - I saved the best for last. This is better than sunshine, bragging on my kids, even better than CW staying in Salt Lake. I do not have 9 o'clock church anymore!!! For the entire year I get to enjoy heavenly 11 o'clock church. I have been waiting for this day since the first Sunday in 2012 when I had to switch to 9 a.m. church. Then the countdown began for when I would once again be able to SLEEP until 9 instead of have my whole family up and ready and in their seats by 9!
What made you smile this month?
I'm partying here today:
