Yes it's true I'm making a goal right now to post at least once a month! That is manageable to me and it will ensure that I don't fall too far behind on my blogging. To play catch up....in the middle of May we got the go ahead to start our pool!! We have been waiting for so long and we were soooo excited!! The school year ended and summer started! Kyle had a 3 day day camp for scouts, then zach had a week of scout camp up at Camp Raymond and then Sydney and I went to Girl's Camp. It was so fun, I love being at camp with her and seeing her be a leader and interact with other girls. I love to see the silliness and to hear them laugh with each other. Camp is very spiritual and I relish in those moments with the YW and especially my daughter. I forgot to mention that Sydney's friend Taylor Heyman left on his mission to Concepcion Chile while she was at camp and it was very emotional and hard on her but she survived! When we got home from camp we jumped into our brand new sparkling pool and loved every moment of it! Sydney then left the day after for EFY with her friend Ashlyn Bishop, they went to the U of U and had a wonderful time and had some great spiritual experiences. She then stayed with grandma and grandpa Brereton for a week and then drove back to AZ with Keith and Pat and Jessie and her kids. Jessie made the decision to move to AZ after she got a job, hopefully she likes it here and will be happy with her choice. The rest of the summer was just swim, swim, swim and summer movies! School started July 23 and Chloe is in 2nd grade and has Ms. Shaheen (kyle had her too), Kyle has Mrs. Nordquist and is in 5th grade and Zach is in 8th grade at Santan Jr. High and Sydney is our senior........boo hoo, she can't do this to me! I'm not ready for her to be almost gone. Sydney is now working as a nanny for 2 hrs a day and makes good money. She is busy with her studies and is enjoying a half day now, I enjoy seeing her more at home. Zach made the Santan soccer team and he is also on the Santan Legacy soccer team, he is very busy, plus juggling school. Kyle is playing soccer and Chris is his coach and he is going to scouts and enjoying school. Chloe is loving school and has really loved having her cousins live here! She is starting dance at Dance Matrix on monday and is so excited. Life is so good, we are just busy with the usual activities and we look forward to fall break in October!
