I just read a few freinds blogs and realized that I am not the only one who lost track of June.
Not only that, I lost my clean house under this pile of crap somewhere.
We have beeen preparing for Trek (well mostly me preparing, wives know what I mean). Dave and I are a Ma and Pa and that seems dandy until you add being YW president on top of it. I thought I would be super helpful and get all my YW girls who needed help prepared for Trek first. After doing all that I was informed that now I had to make sure all my "kids" had their stuff for Trek. REALLY? What have all their leaders who are NOT going on Trek been doing? Lesson learned. Next time I will be lazy and help no one but myself!
I reclaimed my house yesterday after taking all my Sheeeot down to someone elses house to store until dooms day. I'm highly indebted to Aimee since she is the one stuck sewing my skirts and apron.
I was informed yesterday that a Ma and Pa can't go now so we get a last minute new member to our family. Heaven help me if he doesn't have his stuff!!!
Anyway we started off the summer w/Swimming lessons at Geri's and then moved right on to Golf Lessons at the country club. We have gone to Seven Peaks a few times (Dave has even gone). Other than that June has seemed similar to May. Still have soccer and Basketball for Logan but now there are some scout camps too. The big difference is the color of our skin, especially the 3 youngers. Look out coppertone baby, you have some competition!

They Mia Maids had a great idea of going to Donut Falls for their activity and invited us to attend and I was so glad they did. It was a lot of fun! Why is it that all the other leaders are so much better at planning activities than me? Boo to that except when they invite us :)
My family thought I was a total retard when I spent an hour at my Mom's on Mothers day trying to find the source of the itty bitty chirping (what can I say, I like birds). I never found a nest that day but to my excitement I found one at my house that is so much more accessible. Minus the fact that it is a Starling nest and the mother is super aggressive. She is trying to kill me. She even comes in the front yard when I am out there to scream at me for looking at her babies. She seriously hit Gracie in the head the other day w/her wing because I have caused her so much stress and worry from constantly harrassing her babies (I just look at them but she thinks I am going to make nuggets of them or something). I tried making amends w/her by adding more bird seed to my feeder but apparently birds cannot be bribed.
My summer is a success for sure though because I taught this boy a very important life skill, even if the vacuum weighs more than him (your welcome future Sam's wife and so sorry Logan's future wife, I have done what I can to get him to not eat like cookie monster, I'm out of ideas)

while at the gas station getting a Frazil the worker jokingly asked Sam if he could have a taste of his drink. Sam said "sure". The guy was shocked and told me it was the first time a kid ever said yes to his request.
While at Seven Peaks today Sam said "yeah normally you like pay a ton for a pair of fries and they come out sucky but these are mhmmm mhhmmm!!!"
