I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking the kids to scout camp. I want there to be a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived.

May 2011

May has been a busy month in our house (and I'm sure everyone else's too!) The month started with our cousin Hillary's wedding in the Orrqurih Mountain temple. For soem reson, my kids think that dancing is an essential part of any good wedding, so they started some impromptu dancing of their own.

Aubree and Kaden

Cambree being not a happy camper having to wear a dress and a flower.

Tyson and cousin Crystal

Brennen and cousin Karlee (aka Bugga. Brennen will not believe me that her real name is Karlee)

Tyson had his spring program for Musical Mustangs. He and his buddy Kaleb were so excited to sit together and be "cowboy fish."

Silly Pose!

I put sponge rollers in Aubree's hair on Sat nights to get her hair curly for church on Sunday. Cambree decided that she didn't want to be left out.

Brennen had preschool graduation. This is a stressful night for me, as I am the teacher, so I make Bruce video tape it so I can go back and watch it as a parent. He has come so far in preschool this year, and I'm excited to get him going next year!

For Cub Scout Pack meeting in May, we had the Cub Olympics. These are the cookie medals that we made for treats. 751 is our Pack number. I have really enjoyed my calling as Cub Master.

I got to go to school with Tyson on the last day of school. He wrote a story about his year in 1st grade and got to read it to his class. His Teacher, Miss Eberhard, is in the background. She was an amazing teacher for Tyson.

Tyson set a goal at the beginning of the year to get perfect attendance so he could stand on the stage on the last day of school. I told him if he reached that goal, I would take his picture and post it on the blog. So here he is getting his perfect attendance award. I am so proud of him for setting that goal and acheiving it!

Brennen and Cambree swinging at East Elementary. They have been such troopers through all the craziness. I sure do love these little munchkins!
