A Lot of Miles

This last week we've put many a mile on our MDX. Dan hiked Havasupi with his dental friends (sadly no pictures), then we traveled up to southern Utah to our nephew's graduation and also flew to Nebraska to look for our next place. It's been a hectic week and I'm happy to be home if only for a couple of weeks before everything gets crazy yet again!
Driving to Ben's graduation at Tuacahn High School, it couldn't have been a prettier backdrop.
Way to go Ben!
We didn't have fireworks at my high school graduation.
We were lucky enough to be able to leave the kiddos with Aunt Michele so we could focus on the house hunt. We stayed at The Magnolia in downtown Omaha.
I didn't know what to expect of Omaha, I had heard a lot of good things, but I was very impressed with it. It was hilly and green, both of which were positives to me.

Old Market Passageway. We did find a house (pictures soon), and I think we will really like Omaha...and miss Arizona.

The Little Graduate

Rayce had a great year of pre-school this year with Ms. Tatum and Ms. Richey and now he's done. He will enter kindergarten somewhere in Omaha this coming August. My boy is growing fast!
"When I grow up I want to be a police officer and a dad."
Rayce made sure to let me know that I was the only mom that cried...I know son.

Kids of Many Talents

April and May have been all about the kids and their differing activities...I get tired just thinking about it. Now a recap that they're mostly coming to an end.
Rayce had a pretty good season of t-ball and loved his team the Bandits. He became quite the hitter!
And then there was swim lessons, Danielle is just a natural in the water. Rayce was sure he was going to sink but quickly took to it as well. Avie had to sit this session out; she's a little more timid around the water but she wore her swimsuit to every lesson for support.
Danielle diving
We've done lots of bike riding (not sure if Avie had an itch or was just striking her best I'm tough pose)
Danielle performed in her school talent show and was wonderful!
Danielle's dance/gymnastics performance
All this talent can really wear a kid out!

We went out to celebrate the April/May husband birthday's.
The ladies-now that our time in Arizona is coming close to being over I'm realizing how much I'm going to miss my friends!

Just How We Roll

Boris keeps up for the first mile and then this is what we've resorted to.
Darn handy double jogger.
