What we have been doing lately:
The Hope of America. Can you see Ryder? He's right in the middle of the blue section.
Standing outside the library at 6:45 am, waiting to take my last final. I am done. (Almost) Officially a graduate of Brigham Young University. At the tender age of 36.
Packing to go on vacation. Why does it take longer than the vacation? One of my orchestra moms told me it is almost not worth the trip, having to pack and do laundry. I disagree.
Having a daughter old enough to be obsessed with a boy band. Scary.
Next up: Vacation, sending the girls to Minnesota (they are so excited), girls camp, and EFY.
I'm off to pack. See you soon.

orchestra concerts, piano recitals, dance festivals, carnival, and all the other exciting and busy events that herald the end of the school year.
And so here we are again. The school year is over. Desks have been cleaned out, and their contents strewn about my just-cleaned laundry room, backpacks thrown into the corner with a heavy sigh of relief, and we are all feeling a sense of exhilaration.
No more lunches to make every morning, no more tearful evenings agonizing over 4th grade homework and missing assignments. Our days can settle into a lazier succession of trips to the pool, late night movies, library trips, evenings spent outside, and warm weather picnics.

Aren't they cute? (the chickens too!)
Just call us Farmer Joe and wife. Organic farmers extrodinaire. Self sufficiency personified.
So R is deep in another project- a chicken coop to house our new egg producing machines.
And meanwhile they live in the kitchen. Cheeping. Scratching. Driving the dog insane.
A true indication of the state of our lives.
Just the crazy chicken people down the street.

This is for my sisters, and all the other lovely and talented women I know. You truly are amazing!
Elder Uchtdorf touched hearts at the last Womens Conference, speaking of what we as women try to do in our lives. Create homes, create relationships, create beauty!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

At these times a change becomes imperitive.
A new dress.
A change of scene.
Or. . .
Serious. Chic. Dare I say a little bit daring?

Isn't this one great?
When the winter weather howls at the door, and the snow piles up we get a little stir crazy. So this was the scene after dinner this week.
Waltzing through life. ( I love that evie dipped ryder)
Another place I get ideas is from this blog.
She inspires me to slow down and enjoy my kids.
Here is a picture of the wedding cake I did this weekend. It was for the new rentors in our basement, and she wanted something simple and elegant, so we went with a wide red ribbon, and swiss dots, traditionally stacked, with a white grosgrain accent ribbon.
It was beautiful.
I hope you enjoyed this snapshot of the last week in our lives.
Hope you all are doing well.
