Summer Break

Seriously, where does the time go! It feels like I had just posted but it's been awhile.

Yesterday was my grandpa's birthday. (You can read about him here.) I really miss my grandpa. I miss everyone I have lost. There are some that I miss more than others. I really miss my dad. I really miss my grandpa. I really miss my grandma.

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday. I won't tell you how old she is because she would seriously probably try to put me over her knee lol, but lets just say that it is NOT 38 like she told my kiddos. Hopefully we can get a chance to see her again soon.

As of yesterday, both of my kids are out of school for summer. I am already looking forward to school starting up again lol. Don't get me wrong, I love having my babies home. I am just not looking forward to the constant "I'm Bored!" and kids in and out a million times a day. Some days I swear my door is a revolving know the kind that goes in a circle?

Yeah. Kids in and out and out and in. We have got some fun summer activities planned with the kids this year, so hopefully that will help break up the monotony for them some. We are planning hikes, camping, going to a temple open house, going to the Clark Planetarium. We would like to go down to St. George at least once and I would really like to try and get back to MT to see my momma, but who knows if that will be able to happen. We would also really like to take the FrontRunner from Ogden down to Salt Lake. We are doing a weekly movie date with some friends. I know before I know it school will be back in session and I will be going "Where did the summer go?!"

I am also set to start school the day after my birthday this year. I have enrolled at Stephens Henegar College for their Graphic Arts Program. The main reason I chose them is because 90% of the course is online, which will be good for me. There are some classes that I will have to go to campus for, but there is one here in Logan so that won't be too bad. I will also get a free laptop that is mine to keep once I graduate from the program, so that will be nice. I am excited. I need to do something to help out financially, but I can't do a boring sit at a desk job with lots of numbers or something in the medical field. I have to do something creative. I think this will work for me.

Randon and I also both got small raises at work, so that is nice. Every little bit helps! Randon desperately wants to go back to school and get his bachelors. I hope we can find something that will work!
