Just Some Little Things

Hi there! Wow, it's been a long day. For some reason instead of going to bed I thought I'd whip up a quick little blog post. My eyes burn because I am so tired, but I just don't want to go to bed. It's been a long day. I left my house at 9:30 AM after getting kids off to school. I went to work for a few hours and then I went straight to school to meet with my study group and then my tutor. I had an anatomy lab (where I had my second test.... I didn't do so hot) and then I finally made it home around 8 PM. We all hung out together as a family and watched the Olympics until about 8:45. Then we had family scriptures and prayer and the kids went to bed. Andy and I lounged on the couch for a bit until I dragged my bum up to finish my online chemistry homework and quiz that was due by midnight. I made it just in the knick of time. And now, I blog. Next, sleep. But first... just some fun little tidbits that have been going on around these parts.

Magnus did pretty well at potty-training, but he still manages to have an accident every couple of days. We decided to do a sticker chart with a prize incentive to see if that would help. Once he filled up the sticker chart he got his prize. It did help, but he still has accidents once in awhile. Ugh, I just hate potty-training more than anything.

I take the kids to the library every couple weeks. I never get any books while I'm in school. I decided to get a few this last time because my "To Read" list just keeps getting longer and longer. I thought I'd knock a few off of it. I liked a couple of these, but some of them were pretty raunchy, so I didn't finish them. Plus, instead of studying I would read, so back to the library they went. I am officially banning myself from reading until this semester is over.  I just can't manage a balance.

Half of a skull. Did you know there are like, 12 separate bones inside a skull? With weird names like ethmoid and sphenoid and vomer? Yeah, me neither before I started anatomy. Oh anatomy, you are the bane of my mortal existence.

We had a fun night going to celebrate Laylah's advancement to the state Reflection's contest. She was awarded a medal and we got to see all of the entries that were moving on from the Murray school district.

These six little ladies are all in my ward.The four in the back are in my Young Women's group, and the little gal to the right of Laylah is one of her best friends. I am so proud of the talent my ward has! Go girls! I know they will do awesome at state. Laylah and two others are going in the dance choreography division, one of them is going in music composition, one is going in writing, and one is going in art.

This kid.... he cracks me up on a regular basis. How I love him so.

I went with Daphne on a field trip. It was a good time.

Jonah has been playing Jr. Jazz. His poor team isn't very good and they have lost every game, but they sure try hard.

I hate when I accidentally grab a yucky banana. Oh, and see that tape on my steering wheel holding those buttons on? Andy and I decided to see how long our car would actually last before it literally refuses to go one more mile... or explodes... or just falls to pieces all around us while we're riding in it. Fun experiment, huh? Not really. Someday we will get a new car.... someday. Fun fact: Our car is 17.5 years old. An oldie but goodie.

Jonah is required to participate in the science fair because of the class he is in at school. He decided to do an egg drop. He did such a great job, I only helped him with his poster. Oh, and I helped him throw things off the roof :) He did the report all on his own.

Andy and I took the girls and some of their friends to a Ute gymnastics meet. It was fun. We will be taking the boys with some of their friends next time.

Silly girls with cotton candy mustache and popcorn boogies

Baron has also been participating in basketball. He did a developmental league and he loved it. Especially because his cousin Evan was in his same group.

These boys are only 18 months apart and good little buddies. They got a trophy on the last day.

Aaaaaaaand lastly we have..... a giant snake. Andy took the boys to my nephews birthday party one Saturday while I had to work. They had a live reptile show and the boys ate it up. They loved every second. This python is enormous. And super yucky.

And that completes this edition of Some Little Things. Carry on!
