We always keep on trucking. School ends in a couple weeks, so I'm looking forward to the slightly slower pace of summer (although this summer is a busy one!), but for now we have another copy weeks of busy-ness. Mike has also been really busy at work because he's had auditors checking up on things this past week. Jack is getting used to his new pre-school and seems to like it okay. I'm not sure if we are going to keep him there next fall because it's not very convenient and I don't think they are pushing his learning enough, but it's okay for now. He's been very in to imaginative play lately, which is good. Here's the "traffic jam" he created on his track, filling it up with cars, trucks, and busses.

Jack had a fun 4th birthday party. It was kinda overshadowed by everything that happened right around then, but the kids loved playing on all the toys at the YMCA!
After that, we headed to Nevada to see baby Haydn and to Utah for grandma's funeral.
It was nice to see my folks and catch up with a bunch of my cousins, but I wish it could have been for a different reason. Here are some of my cousins and brothers with our children.
Then, we had a little bit of time to get the house put back together, catch up at work, and I had homework to do for my grad program, which started the same weekend everything else occurred.
We had another busy weekend this past weekend, keeping Tommy and Sam while Lesa and Colin went on a little trip. We tried to keep the boys busy....Friday night, they destroyed the house and climbed all over Mike.
We stopped at the mall on the way home. Then, at home we cooked hotdogs and marshmallows on the fire for dinner and played outside until bedtime!
We had a great time with 3 days at Disneyland! The Disneyland Hotel was very nice, classy but with lots of discrete Mickey and Disney detai...
After a crazy couple of weeks at work and in the job hunt (more on that in a day or two), we needed a break. We headed out Friday at about 1...
Whew! What a whirlwind. I know I am very behind on the blog, but it's been hard to catch a breath. In early June, we attended Jack'...
I haven't had time to add much lately because we are remodeling more rooms in the house, and I don't have much to write about except...
