April happenings

William  had his Great Brain Hall of Fame project today! This is kind of a special opportunity that I think only a few students are invited to do. Basically it's like a research paper. He decided to do it on the Digestive System. He did a lot of research, he even asked a Doctor a bunch of question. Well after you do your paper then you need to do a 20 minuted presentation on your project. That was today. He did SO SO SO good. 20 minutes is a long time for a 7 year old. But he did a great job. It even included an experiment for the whole class to do at the end. It was really quite awesome!

Kyanna's end of the year Kindergarten program was today. I LOVE LOVE these programs. I am not sure that I can think of anything cuter. Kyanna was so excited for this. She woke me up early this morning (after going to bed at 2:00 a.m.) and said "mom! mom! do not forget my program is today at 1:00 p.m. do not forget Mom not!" I didn't forget it was so great. Thanks to all of my kids awesome grandparents for coming down for these two special moments in Will and Kyanna's life!

Even the Great Grandparents came down for Will and Kyanna. This is Jenna with the one of the most amazing people in the world. My Great-Grandparents have been amazing. They have been there for all of the most important things in my life and now my kids lives!

A couple of weeks ago William had a swim-a-thon for swim team. He did so good. You could pledge however much money you wanted for each lap that you swam. When he asked my brothers to donate he told them he was only going to swim 5-6 laps. My brother Brian said he would donate 3 dollars a lap. I think he was a little surprised when William swam 22 laps!!! (we didn't make him pay 66 dollars :))

Another huge milestone for Kyanna! That's a two-wheeler with NO training wheels!

William is doing swim team and Kyanna is doing soccer. She has been doing great she even scored a goal ! So proud of her!

Easter 2012

So I sooooo have not done good at keeping up with my blog. Oh well I will try harder. Mostly our Easter vacation was spent at home, well o.k. half of our Easter vacation. On Sat. our friend invited us to go with them to Goblin Valley and Little Wild Horse Canyon. I LOVE that we live so close to all of this amazing places. I mean this was only like a hour and half away, totally day trip doable. Anyways we spent the morning letting the kids climb on all the rocks at Goblin Valley. JUst a big playground. Then second half of our day was spent hiking at Little Wild Horse Canyon. Which is a slot canyon. We figured that we hiked about 7 miles. The kids did great. Jenna was on Brett's back. She did good even fell asleep on the hike back. It didn't really even seem that long cause it was so beautiful that it was just so enjoyable to walk through.
All the kids!
The family right before another slot area!
