So this past week I picked up Sydney from girls camp in Salt Lake City (she went with our old ward). While I was up there, a friend (Josh DeMoux) reminded me that I hadn't updated our blog since Christmas. My initial thought was, "I have a blog?"
So here it is, 8 moths or so after our last post and I am finally updating the blog...
Let's see what a quick recap would entail.
January: Vicki worked (started full-time with the county). Rich went to basketball games and wrestling matches. Sydney and Skyler went to school. Skyler went snowboarding with the middle school up to Brian Head and had a blast.
February: Vicki worked and hurt her knee again (cleaning toilets and playing church basketball are hazardous to your health!). Rich went to basketball games, wrestling matches, state basketball, state wrestling with Sydney, state drill team with Vicki, and kicked some kids out of school. Sydney and Skyler went to school.
March: Vicki worked and got called as the ward Relief Society secretary. Rich had a couple of weeks of down time between sports seasons and got called to serve in the ward old man group as the first assistant. Vicki's presidency meetings were twice as long as Rich's (go figure). Sydney turned 16 and got her drivers license. Rich and Vicki took turns fainting. Skyler went to school and received his Deacon's Duty to God award.
April: Vicki worked. Rich went to boys soccer, boys baseball, boys tennis, track, and girls softball. Sydney and Skyler went to school. Sydney received her young woman recognition award/medallion.
May: Vicki worked. Rich went to boys soccer, boys baseball, boys tennis, track, and girls softball. The family took a trip to Roosevelt to watch state softball. Rich went to state tournaments for all of the above sports in Provo and Spanish Fork. School ended and Skyler and Sydney started sleeping in. Rich and Skyler went on a father's and son's campout using 4 wheel drive up a muddy mountain to get there while pulling a trailer.
June: Vicki worked. Rich and Skyler fished. Sydney slept in, ate Doritos and hung out with friends claiming she was job hunting by networking with friends. We went up to Matt Brown's farewell in the old ward (he is a freakin stud by the way). We took a 10 day trip with Dave and Karon's family (Rich's brother) up to Oregon and the Redwoods in California. Had a wonderful time horseback riding on the beach, in the trees, up the river (without a paddle), and hanging out with 50 billion mosquitoes at Crater Lake. Winemucca we could have done without, but other than that it was awesome!
July: Vicki worked. Rich and Skyler fished. Sydney slept in, ate Doritos and hung out with friends claiming she was job hunting by networking with friends. Sydney also went to girls camp and helped work on her new room in the basement. Rich and Vicki went to George Strait at USANA in Salt Lake (that was a "died and gone to heaven" moment for Rich).
August: Vicki worked (see a recurring theme yet?). Rich and Skyler fished (you saw that one coming too right?). Sydney slept in, ate Doritos and hung out with friends claiming she was job hunting by networking with friends. Sydney also went to girls camp in Salt Lake with the old ward and helped work on her new room in the basement. The room is now officially finished and she is loving life in her ginormous room. We all went camping at Panguitch Lake with Dave and Karon's family. Rich and Skyler caught 0 fish. Kyle (10 year old cousin) caught 4. Ryan (12 year old cousin) caught 1. Sierra (6 year old cousin) caught 1. Kory (4 year old cousin) caught 1. Dave (40+ year old brother caught 1). Sydney ran away anytime someone caught a fish as part of her fish-o-phobia. Vicki is now working with the 14-16 year old girls in young women's. Less meetings but more activities.
Now Rich can be seen moping around the house as he is officially employed again. Vicki can be seen working (still). Sydney and Skyler are hanging out waiting for school to start so there is something to do...
Hope all is well with everyone!
