Back to Reality

For the past week, my blog has been filled with pictures from my Hawaii vacation, so even though I've been home for several days, it kind of feels like my vacation has continued on. Well, now it's back to reality.
Here are a few shots from the last few days since we got home. Parker ran in the qualifying meet for district. Unforunately, he came in 9th place in the mile, and the top 8 go to district. He did get 5:16, which is his fastest time ever. His medley relay team qualified, though, so they will be running tomorrow at district


At the starting line. Parker is right in the middle -- the man in black.

Over the weekend, Mallory had rehearsals for her ballet and jazz recitals, as well as the performance for jazz.




And finally, here's a shot of me with my four wonderful children on Mother's Day. I am so blessed to have such great kids. I love them all so much.


Alex's 2nd grade teacher had them answer some questions about their moms. Some of his responses made me laugh out loud.

Why are there mothers? "So you won't get hungry when your dad's gone."

Why do you think you got your mother instead of another mother? "Because I'm perfect for her."


What does your mother keep saying? "Do the dishes."


What is the most important thing in your mother's life? "Taking pictures."


What do you think your mother will be like in 10 years? "She'll be 10 years older."


Tell about a time when you were proud of your mother. "When she smashes spiders."


What is the most important thing your mother has taught you? "How to make toast."



So, if any of you need to know how to make toast, just ask!:)

My DD's track coach encourages them to go for improving their times, so I'd say he had a successful race! Love those tutus, and the Mother's Day questionnaire cracked me up.

Meg, I love these! I laughed out loud at your son's responses; you MUST save those. I am calling you when I need to smash spiders! BTW, really liked the shots from the Laie temple and the PCC. I love those places.
