Has it really been that long since I've blogged?!  Geez...I better get on it.  So, what's been going on with are some highlights.

January - My parents took the ENTIRE family to Florida and we spent a week playing in the sun.  I, of course, did not take any pictures.  Somehow, I've forgotten to bring my camera and to actually use it.  I know alot of people use their phones to take pics, but I really don't like how the pictures turn out on my phone.

February - Not a whole lot happened.  We pretty much just endured a Cache Valley winter and hoped for snow. Of course, it didn't snow, but we did keep hoping.

March - I think hibernation ended because our social calendar started to pick up.  We played games and had parties, and enjoyed our friends company.  Oh and we finished a very painful season of Jr Jazz.  Rylan's team was seriously awful.  He was the best kid on the team by FAR, but he couldn't make up for the complete lack of any sort of athleticism on his team. My dad came to a game and seriously asked if Rylan was on a special needs team.  That's how good his team was. On the last day of March, we planted our garden.

April - Soccer started up so we spent all of our Fridays and Saturdays at soccer games.  I ran the Salt Lake 1/2 marathon less than a week after the bombings at the Boston Marathon.  What a neat experience that was! Except for the pouring down rain.  I actually would do that race again.  Just the 1/2 though...not the full.

May - Rylan finished up his soccer season.  He and Tim started rock climbing lots. I was busy with lots of church stuff and I started working for Brooke and Travis.  I'm the girl who goes around and weeds on Tuesdays.  Oh and I ran the Ogden 1/2 the pouring down rain.  Apparently, I need to learn that I can enjoy running in the rain.

June - I started off the month doing Little Red Riding Hood with my friend KeniaAnn.  We did the 60 mile option and had a blast.  I ran the Brother Brigham's 1/2 marathon in Brigham City.  I loved the course...lots of rollers. Tim did lots of volunteering for radio support at different events. Oh and I had a huge project to get done for our youth conference. I should probably do a separate entry on that experience.

July - July started off with the Blacksmith Fork Freedom Run 15k.  I really like that distance.  Rylan's new soccer team "The Internationals" won the Cache Cup. Tim and I went to the Cache Valley Cruise-In and we've been doing lots of social stuff with friends.

I ran into a colleague from Illinois State the other day while out shopping for running shoes.  It's so funny to think of that "life" I used to have.  He asked how I was doing and all I could say was, "Great.  I absolutely know this is exactly where I'm supposed to be in my life.  I love it!"  While it's probably a boring life to some, I wouldn't trade it for anything else.  There is something to be said for living the life that you know you're supposed to be living and having that confirmed daily by the events that happen around you.
