So, this past week has been a busy one! I haven't had the time to post anything, obviously and now it is after midnight and although I should be going to bed, I'm going to quickly post an update on the past weeks events.
1st: Ian started football practice. This has been an interesting experience already. They have practiced 4 days in a row for 2 hours! That is more work than Ian has ever done for a sport and I am so proud of him for working hard and trying his best not to whine about the heat. It was hot... I don't know how he stood it in all that uniform. The first day was rough with a few little crying spats and some accusations of us "forcing" him into this (don't worry, there was no coercing, bribing, or forcing....he begged....literally). After the crying came the moping and the dragging of the arms. Barely running....acting like he was going to die at any moment. Fun stuff. The next day, however, he really worked his tail off! I was so amazed. He is not the fastest runner on the team...by far... but he didn't quit, he didn't cry, and he said that he actually enjoyed it! So, for now...he likes it. They started the tackling on Wednesday and at first he was a bit timid with it. Afraid to really hit the person very hard, but by the end he was coming around to it. I think as he gets more comfortable, he is going to do really well.
2nd: We have visitors! Denver's mom is in town to visit for a month. She brought a little entourage with her.....all 3 of her sisters! So we have 4 women in our home for a week. Next week the 3 sisters are flying back home and leaving Carlotta to stay for a few more weeks. So far we have taken them up the Alpine Loop and to Sundance for a little mountain sightseeing and to Temple Square downtown. I think tomorrow we are going to relax a bit and maybe do some more temple sights.
3rd: I attended my 20th High School reunion Friday night. I was on the fence about going up until the day of. I finally decided that I did want to go to this reunion. I have been talking to so many people on facebook recently that I just couldn't resist going to see them. 2 of my friends who were supposed to be going as well didn't show up so at first I was feeling like a bit of a loner (hubby didn't go with me) but then I saw Jon and all was well! It was so fun to see him again and talk about old times and new times! He kept me company and I really enjoyed it...quite a few people that saw us together assumed that we were married! That was pretty funny.... I sat at a table with him and 3 other girls that I didn't necessarily know well in high school but sure had fun talking and laughing with them that night. Makes me wish we had known each other better back then.....So, that's the quick update. Next week we are leaving for Arizona to take care of some business as well as attend my 'Ries' family reunion. It will be a great time....HOT....but lots of fun!
