Spring break skiing 2011

Yes - I realize it's summer and I'm just getting these up. A combination of lazy, forgetful and exhausted has created a lack of anything except the absolutely necessary getting accomplished. Blogging has been no where on the absolutely necessary list. Summer is here and with it a renewed sense of "get it done-ness". And with that is the need to record our family memories. I want my children to remember all the fun times we have together. Many of our fun memories have been up in the mountains. We love it up there! The twins get excited every time we tell them we're going. Skiing this year was great. It's amazing how much they continue to improve. Skiing with them is one of my favorite things.

Music Theory Recital

London started a three year music theory program last fall. The first year students start off learning basic music theory and playing bells, by the end of the third year they compose their own piece on the piano. She has loved and enjoyed every minute of this program. At the end of each year they have a recital for all the students. It was so great to see what all the kids had learned through the year. London did a great job! We're so proud of everything she is learning.

Love with her friends: Ella and Sierra at the recital.


We had a nice and low key Easter with family this year. I have been extremely bad about picture taking since Zane has come. I gave myself a nice pat on the back for even getting this snapshot taken:). We haven't quite got the "hold-the-baby-and-smile-for-the-camera-and-look-like-your-enjoying-it" posing down quite yet. We're working on it.
