Aaron the Newest 7th Grader

Hello, I thought that I would just share some pictures of Aaron's graduation. I'm thinking that he took most of these himself. He did like taking pictures of himself. He is such a cutie. Maybe we should get him a camera for his birthday. Must not have looked good the first time

Different smile I think?Maybe this will do the trick? Girls I don't know. More people I don't know.
Josh and friend. The 7th grade is going to be in trouble.
His teacher Mrs. Wright. Who wasn't always. Somebody else I don't know This is Destiny, she had a lot to say I just didn't understand any of it. She mumbled through the whole thing. It had to be pretty scary up there.
All of that just took about 30 minutes and then he was promoted. He wasn't too happy about it though he is very happy for summer to began and his birthday. First a camping trip he isn't looking forward to.

Had to do it.

I think the yellow will be easier to read on the red for now. I guess I could use black but then what would be the fun in that. I had to put up the new wallpaper for now. It will be in just until after the movie which is the end of June then I'll change it. Want everybody to know that it is hard to type with long nails. They are getting shorten on Wednesday. I am trying to figure out how to make my blog look nicer. My new goal is to write in more than once every 11 months. I started to write about my trips but have lost them somehow. Now I have to start over. I'll do that tomorrow when I'm with Elijah at the hospital doing his annual heart checkup. Had to scared there for a second didn't I with the mention of hospital. By the way Elijah just informed us that he doesn't like to be called Liege in public anymore so now I'm trying to call him Eli. i don't think that he likes that name either. It's going to take a little getting use to but then again maybe he'll let us call him Ligie. Heck I don't even know how to spell it. Need to get some sleep. Try again tomorrow.


New little gel toes

Our beautiful model is Isabelle. You can see that she has pink in her hair.
Light pink.

Dark pink better known as magenta

Now to the glitter toes
or hands

or maybe a little or both

Doesn't she have cute toes?

She couldn't pick a color so we did as many as she liked. Unfortunately she didn't have that many toes and fingers.

The 4th of July Race

Normally the 4th comes and it goes. It is always a day we look forward too. This year we really looked forward to it. Terry was coming home and so were Chad and Darrin. It has been a family tradition to run the 5k. Normally the boys and grand kids have ran it. Lately, the sister-in-laws have been running it also. Well, this year on a fluke I decided to run it. We all know that I don't run. I don't even exercise on a regular basis. I am basically a couch potato. I can tell you what shows come when they come on and what it going to happen next. This year I decided to run it. I have no idea why. I came in second to last in my division I am pretty sure. The only thing is that I didn't want to come in last. Well I made that goal. I was feeling pretty good in the beginning. I did plan on walking the whole way to the end. I didn't make that goal because it was down hill and it was easier to run. I almost ran the whole way.( When I say that I ran all the way translation is it was slightly faster than a walk it could almost be considered speed walking except they are faster. Sad but true.) My face felt like it was about to explode. I kept feeling it getting hotter and hotter. Kim kept telling me I looked fine. I was a little more out going than I normally am. I do think that I might have embarrassed Kim a little. Though I do have to admit I did like it when they would cheer. I know that I'm going to be sore tomorrow and the next day. Maybe I'll train for this for next year. ( Then again maybe not). I was very happy that I finished it. I talked about all the way home from the park. Aaron said I was bragging but I was just happy that I finished. I was very proud of myself. So proud of myself that I made Zac give me his medal that he won. I didn't realize that I knew so many people. Maybe if I knew that I would see all those people I wouldn't have run. I am happy that I was healthy enough to get and say that I'm going to run and be able to do it. You have to count your blessings when you can. Though at the end when I had to take my number off I did ask the lady to come to me to get it. Steve thought it was funny. Then again so did the rest of them. I did leave Libby. Like I said I totally expected to walk the whole way but it was easier to run because it was all down hill except the last little way. I do think that Libby was mad at me for leaving her. I have been creaking and moving very slowly it feels like I'm about 6 months pregnant. Holly cow. But I didn't think that cows were big enough. So by the end I was saying Holly whale because it was the biggest mammal that I could think of. After the race though I was sweaty and not glowy. I think that I like the glowy instead of sweaty part of it. The night before I tried to get the younger girls to run they didn't. After I did then they all said we should have ran in the race. This maybe a nice tradition for the girls also. We'll see. I did have fun. I'm in a little bit of pain now. I'm sure that I will be in a little bit of pain for the next 2 day.( Or a lot more) We'll see how I do in church tomorrow. There was a part that I had to slap the kids five and I didn't slap Noah or Isabelle so I had to go back and slap them. I know that I surprised Kira that I actually finished and did the race. Though I did try to get Kira to take my number and finish the race for me. She refused. Next year I'm sure she is going to smoke my butt. Then again who says I have to run next year. In the words of Scarlet that's another day.

Aaron has earned his Arrow of Light

The reason why the bog is decorated the way it is. Drum roll. You guessed it by the title right? Yes. My son with a lot of hard work has earned his Arrow of light. He also has gotten all his compass points and he has earned every pin in Weblos. Good job Aaron. Unfortunately he will not be receiving them tonight like he was suppose to. He has a scheduling conflicting problem. he needs to perform a play tonight and nothing can be changed so he will get to June 30th. Sad but true. I'll take pictures and video. now that I know how to work it. Promise the video will be shorter. I'll figure it out. so If I survive the next two nights then I'll change the blog appearance again. All I have to do is get through soccer practice, making dinner,cleaning the church,dropping off Aaron, getting things ready for scouts. Tomorrow having a soccer game, scouts, and sending the older kids to mutual. Oh did I mention my dryer broke yesterday and I still have laundry to do!!! Not to mention Elijah got sick and throw up all over his bed @ 5:00 am. He did manage to get some on Aaron's pillow. i was suppose to go shopping for one today, but who needs clean clothes. I'm just lucky that Grandpa is coming to my rescue tomorrow to help me with scouts.

Brandon Mull anyone?

All this for just a picture. Smile please.I'm so happy I'm crying. No more waiting!!! We can go home.Tada the man we've been waiting for!! We were able to go to the Fablehaven book party. It was fun. They were able to get their books signed. We had a blast but I forgot to take pictures. Well we got a book for Jared and Kira decided that she wanted to get a set just for her. He was going to be at Costco and we waited in another line. This seemed to take forever. But hey this time I got pictures. He is such a nice guy. His hand probably hurt and he stayed until there were no more people. They shut down the line at 2:00pm and he was there until about 4:00pmNoah in the beginning with a messy mug.Are we there yet?We can see him!
I'm here now what do I do?
