Happy Father's Day

I just wanted to write about the wonderful Father my children have. He is so good to them. When we were dating I was able to see how he interacted with his nieces and nephews and knew that he would be a great Dad, one of the many things I fell in love with and still love. He became a father 10 years ago this September and has been the best. He takes time to spend with the kids. Today he took the on a mountain biking trail and they had a blast. He will do things with them, aka play barbies, even if it really isn't his thing (at all). I could not ask for a better Father for my children, or a better husband. I hope he knows how much I love and appreciate him. Thanks for all you do.
I can't leave this post there though. I also have been blessed with a great Father myself. Dad is always in tune with what we need. Even if I don't want to hear it. He has helped in so many ways. I also appreciate the mother he choose for us to have. We truly have been blessed. I am thankful to have him in my children's lives. We are also blessed to have his Father in our lives too. And, like Papa always says, look at all that has come from him and Nanny. Thanks for the wonderful family I am able to surround myself with.

So Lame

I am not afraid to admit how lame I am. I just don't have the desire to blog lately. I don't have anything I want to write about, and I feel a little guilty. I will blame it on the crappy weather and Scott being gone so much. Really it is I just don't want to do anything. Summer is here and I couldn't be happier. The kids have kept themselves, and me, busy. We did take a break the first week to relax and recoup. Then last week Noah had Scout camp Monday to Thursday from 8:30 - 2:30 each day. He was in heaven and is not far from receiving his wolf badge, with a slew of pins and belt loops. He would be happy doing Scouts all summer. Harley started a cooking class on Mondays and Wednesday from 9 - 10:30 and Volleyball from 2:30 - 3:30 (same days). At first she hated cooking, one of the instructors was mean, and loved volleyball. I told her she had to go at least half of the month, to get my $ worth. She is loving it now, thanks in part to Jacei and Kaylee. Noah has joined the cooking fun this week and does softball on Tuesdays 9:30 - 11. We need to figure out how to squeeze the library in and pray for some swimming weather. That is about all we are up too. I'll try to get my act together but at this point I just really don't care, see the lame coming out again. Hopefully with Scott coming home, hopefully Friday (still up in the air) and no trips in the future (except together or the girls, and kids, trip) I will get my act together, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Bitter Sweet

Scott and I just celebrated 11 years of marriage on Saturday. We really didn't get to do anything, but we were together. We got to hang-out and relax a little. It was fun just to be together, and with Noah too (Har was out of town with the Nygren's). It is crazy to think we have been married for 11 years. In ways it feels like we have been together forever and in others it feels like it can't already be 11 years. Despite all the ups and down that marriage can bring, our love continues to grow bigger and stronger, even though you think there is no way to possibly love each other more, you can. Now the bitter part. Sunday we had to say goodbye to Scott yet again so he could head off to Houston for the last training session, a least for awhile. He will be back Friday and we get him for a week and then it is off to Gallup to help out at the plant there for turn-around. I know it isn't nearly as bad as Steph's situation, but I miss him none the less. I am thankful that he was able to get someone to cover for him over the Fourth of July so I can see my cute newest Nephew and let him know that Mikael can't be his only favorite, even if he peed on Talon for her. Then a couple weeks later we will be off to help Steph forget about the bitterness of having her loved one gone so long. Although, she'll probably be so excited for us to leave by the end and have a quite house again, I can't wait to invade. And that ends my randomness for now (at least in the blogging world).
