I was just reading through some old blog entries and realized how much I miss blogging - mainly because I was writing about all the day to day things that were happening and it brought back some great memories. I think maybe it's time to be consistent again, even if it is only because I want a record of things. Here's the latest:
Porter is in the fourth grade and is sailing through school. He bragged to me the other day that he has never had to study for a test or anything because he is so smart - that's humility, right? While I was happy and proud of him, the only thing I could think of was how much he's going to have a hard time when he actually has to study for something! But that's another issue... He always has an interesting fact about some random something and would rather prefer his nose in a book than doing anything else (except play video games). He's in the Webelos scout den and is one activity badge away from getting his Webelos award. He has a goal to get all 20 activity badges by the time he's 11 - which is a goal for the both of us. We just signed him up for Spring Baseball and he has been put on the Phillies. He's into practices already and is so excited to start playing again. So is his dad.
Andrew is in Kindergarten and is growing up way to fast. He loves school and his reading ability has just taken off - I have been amazed at how well he reads now. His best friend is our little neighbor girl, Sally, and they are constantly together. I love it when we go out to catch his bus because he hollers at her the minute he sees her when we walk out the door and they run to each other like they haven't seen each other in years. He has really grown up in the past year (much to my dismay). We just signed him up for spring Coach-Pitch baseball and he can't wait to play.
As far as the rest of us, meaning Rhett and I, I'm just trying to keep things steady here at home while Rhett works his tail off during tax season AND teaches two accounting courses at the USU extension here. He has also been Elder's Quorum President, but (thankfully) was released this past week. Needless to say, I don't ever see the man. I've been training for my third Salt Lake Half marathon, my sixth half marathon total. We are still here in Vernal and are loving the warm, spring weather and are looking forward to our first summer here with grass. We spend most of our free time outside playing baseball. It's a good life!
