Making Good Time

Spring has sprung...or it's trying to, and so we are taking full advantage and blazing full speed ahead. I don't think I've ever seen a longer winter than we have had. It started in October, and it's still snowing in May. On the few good days we've had, we "made haste" and followed the sun. Part of the fam took a trip to Moab where we did 160 foot rapells down arches and into caves, hiked to Delicate Arch, layed out by the pool, drove up Hell's Revenge in a Hummer and had an all around great time. And I have to say, the girls were great company! They were real troupers. Especially the time we had them hanging from a rope with a 100 foot drop to go, and made them promise to keep their rooms clean and come home by curfew before we would let them down the rest of the way. Ah yes, those were the good times.

Then we followed up that with Whitney being honored as a scholar athlete at Utah State. Only athletes with a high GPA are honored. Whitney was part of an elite group and it was a very proud day.

Then a spectacular weekend with the boys graduation from Snow College. Both boys graduating at once before they head to their next step in life. Jantzen will be starting pharmaceutical tech school to get his certificate before starting up college again in the fall. And Zac just secured a paid work study to set up a sustainable living footprint at a resort just outside Zions National Park. He'll start by setting up an organic garden and go from there. Who would have guessed? I always pegged Jantzen as the art teacher and Zac as the defense attorney. It's such a riot to see them go their own way and evolve into an adult with their own interests.

Kevin just made President's Club (woo-hoo) so we get an all expense paid trip to Kauai coming up in August. He is first to point out that he will meet the terms of our pre-nuptial this year (two trips outside of the country each year come rain or shine). I hate to break it to him Hawaii is on US soil. But I'm not complaining! Can't wait to go. Just the two of us (and 25 of his closest work friends). Golfing, sun, beaches. Ahhh.

Nothing much else to add for now. I've got to go pack for my first fishing expedition of the year. The ice is off Fontanelle Reservoir. The fish have summoned me. And as for an update from my last post--spray tan...CHECK. Lose 10 pounds....getting there.
