Playing catch up........

Lilli's first day of school

Only 6 of the 23 people in my class showed up for our 10 year high school reunion with their families. It was fun but I wish that more people would have come.

Lilli burnt her marshmallow, can you tell she's disgusted.

All of us in our 4th of July outfits.

I really can't remember where I left off (before the whole Lilli cut her hair........AGAIN), so I'm just going to post some pictures and write about what we've been up to lately. This more for Ben (and journal purposes) than anyone/anything, so bear with me.

We're back in Georgia now. We had a blast back West with family. After visiting Ben's family, we got back and had about 1 month left with my family. We definitely made the most of it. We went and had dinner up in the mountains, went camping for a night, and went to Bear Lake. I had my 10 year high school class reunion. Myself and my friend, Katie, planned it. We just did a dinner. Nothing huge and I'm glad because only 6 people showed up out of 23. It was a lot of fun catching up with all of them. Some I haven't seen since graduation. It was great! We also were there for the Pioneer Celebration. My little town has a parade, a program where Elder Perry and some other general authority speaks at, and then activities all day, like a rodeo, flag football, soft ball. I took Lilli to the rodeo. She didn't get in to it so we left after a while. Anyway, we had a great time.

And then we came back to Georgia. My mom came with, and I'm so glad she did. We spent the week and a half she was here getting the house ready to sell. Now I'm just trying to keep it that way! We're adjusting all right though. Getting back in to a routine. Lilli had her first day of Pre-K on Monday. It was a bitter-sweet thing. She's loving it and that makes me happy. She looked so cute and little. I love her. She's still a crack up and is always mothering her little brothers. But they sure do love her. She really misses her daddy and is lashing out at me. I'm really trying to be patient and understanding but it's really hard.

The boys are getting so big and growing big personalities. Alex has quite the temper but is very loving too. Aidan is funny. When I ask him a question and he want it, he says, "ah" for yeah. It's so cute. love them! Both of them!

I've started my half marathon training on Tuesday. I've gone to the gym everyday and it's been fun to get back into it again. Ben's doing good as well. We get to do skype about once a day and video once a week, sometimes more sometimes less. He's been having a hard time missing us, but it's making the most of his situation. He's also training for a half marathon and is also busy with work. It seems that's all he does. He's constantly changing shifts. We've only got 2.5 half more months left. I feel like I can do this. We can do this.

That's our life in a nutshell, from the last 4 months. I feel like I'm caught up. so I'm good for another 4 months. hahaha Just kidding. We're all safe and doing well. Missing family, but we're hanging in there.
