I am so tired. I just want a week to have no place to go and nothing to do besides house work and laundry. We have had quite the month. It seems like we have had some sort of activity, vacation or someone to visit every day. I should not say it seems that way… it was that way. Mid-month we decided last minute to go on the 2nd Lake Powell trip with the Hendricksons. Jon and I drove separate so I could stay in St.George for a week after our Powell trip to spend time with my visiting sister and family. I was seriously elated at the two weeks of fun planned. It started out great and then everyone started to get sick from the contaminated water at Loan Rock Beach on Friday night. It was horrible. I never got it… thank goodness, but I did get to take care of my family. We are talking two nights of all night vomiting and the runs. Jon is still not over it. I thought my kids were better and we tried to stay down to visit my family… but alas the vomit and extras continued. I was sick of my kids being sick at other’s homes. We drove home and are continuing to get well again. The positive side is Grandma Katie & Aunt Lacy + cousins arrived from California and the kids have had a good time with them. I will post this month’s pictures soon.
Riley starts 4th grade tomorrow. Preston starts kindergarten next week. Pyper is walking and climbing like a monkey. Jon has a construction job for the next couple of weeks and is working on his application for police school. I am just trying to stay on top of it all. Life goes on and so must we.... Might as well smile and enjoy it!!

Sounds like you had One crazy summer! Maybe when all the kids are in school you can enjoy a little quiet time with just you and piper! That is what i will be doing in 2 weeks, trying to entertain a 19 month old all day long- Just me and Ansley at home all day long!

I can feel your tiredness. I'm with you wanting to have nothing to do, no where to go, and no one to see for a while. It was good to visit with you this weekend even with all of the chaos.
