I'm Back!

It has been a long time since my last post! I have been running around like a crazy person. I have finally realized that I will forever be at sporting events with my four boys. For the last few months we have been at the baseball park every night during the week for games, then we are at football games on the weekend! Now that baseball and football have ended, I finally have time to sit down and relax....at least until basketball starts. I have tried without success to convince my boys that they would have more skiing time if we skipped a season of basketball, but they are die hards. Here are some videos of the boys in their sports!

The Train Ride to NO PLACE SPECIAL!

I took the boys on a Union Pacific Train Ride the other day. I felt it was long and boring, but my boys felt like they had won the lottery! They were able to sit on the very top, so they could see everything. It is funny how easy they are to please!

Summer is here! My summer is filled with boys,baseball and fun!


Rylan is my middle child. He often displays the characteristics of a middle child....Nothing is fair, no one likes me, I have to do everything! Although he is in this unfortunate position in our family, he also displays greatness! He does not enjoy video games or television, he would rather go on an adventure then sit on the couch. He loves nature, rocks and scientific things are his passion. He loves sports and does well in school. Rylan often writes me messages on his chalk board in his room, the last one said " Happy Mothers Day Mom and Happy birthday, you grow up so fast! Love Rylan." Even though my sweet boy feels he often gets the short end of the stick, he is truly loved and appreciated for all his gifts and talents!

I did a race in Moab, I love this race! I was excited, prepared and ready for a fun day with my friends.......but it wasn't meant to be! I knew by mile 4 that the race was going to be rough for me. I started letting things get into my head before the race started, because I took a nasty fall on some rocks. That did not help my mental strategy! I can't say if it was physical sickness, mental or both but I was not feeling good at all! I luckily had a sweet love friend who ran with me and kept me going! At the end, my time was not bad considering I wanted to die! I don't remember much of the race because I felt like I was going to pass out throughout most of it, but I do remember My friend Carla grabbing my hand at the finish line and telling me to smile for the camera! It is all about how you look doing it! I love running, I love being social with my girls, and even though I had a bad race, I can't wait to do it again!

My sweet love Karter Tre' just turned 4 years old! For all of you who are wondering, he is doing really well and I think he has fully recovered from his illness! I have so many fun things to say about this sweet boy, but since I don't have all day I thought I would post one thing about him that makes us all smile! No matter where he is or what time of day it is, when Karter is tired he will fall asleep! He has fallen asleep mid sentence, during dinner, sitting up, anywhere! My big boys love to take pictures of him while he is sleeping, so we will dedicate his birthday blog to his strange sleeping habits!! We love you sweet boy!

I haven't updated my blog this month because it has been so depressing! I usually try to put fun things on my blog and even now I am having a hard time thinking of what to write. A good friend of mine lost her husband to Cancer this last week, he was 32 years old. She is now left with two year old twins to raise alone. We just kept hoping for a miracle and when they said terminal it was heart breaking! This alone was enough but the bad didn't stop there. My little Karter came down with a disease! The word is frightening isn't it! I won't mention the name because I don't want my blog to show up every time someone looks it up! Before I continue I will say that we now believe that Karter is fine and that this will soon be a bad memory. He had an allergic reaction to a virus and His body started attacking itself. It is very rare and self limiting, but It attacks your kidneys and other organs. MY poor baby was covered in spots that looked like he was beaten and the disease left him with arthritis in he joints so that he could hardly walk. The swelling got so bad that we thought he had broken bones and we even got x-rays! His head became swollen and he looked like Hermon Munster! It has been almost 4 weeks now and he is starting to feel a little better but still has pain when he walks. They put him on steroids which has helped and his last tests showed that his kidneys looked okay! We will have to go to the doctor every month for a year to check his kidney function but at least He is getting better. It is hard to see a 3 year old in pain! Karter was really not doing well and I know that it is because of every ones prayers that he has started to recover! There have been people in our community that are not members that asked us if they could pray for him! What a blessing to have such sweet friends looking after our family. I feel grateful for my life and my blessings! Next month I am hoping for some sunshine!
