More Day Trips!

Another weekend in the mountains? Gosh, okay, twist my arm!
  
 
Carter finally got to have his first rafting experience. The river was running way too high last year, so this year was finally the time! And not only did he raft, he jumped off the LFR! I can tell by the big smile on his face that he had a blast.

Day Trips

Since the rest of the year is going to be spent on major home projects, we knew Belize was going to be it for big travel plans. In between the projects, we plan to explore close-ish to home via little day/overnight trips here and there. This last weekend, we headed up to Lowman where my parents and aunt/uncle were already camped and just chilled with them for the day. No matter how brief the trip, that mountain air always revitalizes my spirit.

Small Victories

It's all of two weeks into summer break and these to have been AT EACH OTHER'S THROATS. As in, mom is about to take out a Craigslist ad and ship them OUT. However, every now and then, for about 13 seconds, they get along and give me this:
 
 
I guess they can stay. ;)

It's a Wrap!

Well, another school year has come to an end. Both kids made huge strides this year, academically, socially, and physically. I am so proud of their accomplishments and I know they are excited to get summer started!!

2018 Spring Baseball

Well, this season of baseball has come and gone, and I think Carter made quite a bit of improvement - though it took a village. :)  He seems to be at that age right now where he doesn't know if he wants to continue with this sport, so hopefully he can put in some good thought over the summer and decide what he wants to do.  Here are some random shots I managed to get here and there when Sir Carter wasn't paying attention.  Hey, mom's gotta do what mom's gotta do!

















Here are a couple videos I managed to get between keeping book and being instructed by the golden child to NOT do videos. ;) Ain't life grand?



And what Kendall does for most of the games:

4th Grade - Idaho History Rendezvous

4th grade is the best in Idaho - or at least that's how I remember it!! The curriculum sure has changed though, which is really a bummer because the kids are missing out on so much fun. I remember Idaho History topics and class presentations, forming our "wagons" for the Oregon Trail journey in our class, etc. They seem to touch on a few of those topics, but it isn't nearly as fun as it used to be. Fortunately, they still hold the 4th Grade Rendezvous, which was the best part of 4th grade in Meridian! I couldn't pass up on the opportunity to volunteer for this field trip, and we had a really fun day!
