May Pictures

There were so many events in May that I just could not keep up with the blog.  So here are the last few weeks in May with all of the performances and activities.

CR's Chimes Concert


S's Advanced Art Show

Because I have class every Wednesday night I could not attend the kids concerts since they all happened to be on Wednesdays ahhh!!!

5/4, 5/11, 5/18
Wednesday Concerts


C's Dance Co. Blackbox

CR's Spectrum Graduation

CR does not normally dress like this for graduations but the Spectrum Graduation was right after the Medieval Banquet so they are all still dressed up.  He did an amazing job with everything in Spectrum.  This was the best program for him and although it was hard it was worth it!  He earned lots of awards including his "Master's Degree".

Shauna & Cory's Wedding

Shauna is the first (kind of ...at least of the later group) of my YW to get married.  She is a beautiful young woman and I love her so much.  She got married in the Bountiful Temple to Cory (a very nice young man btw).  KC and I were lucky to be there for this most important event in their lives!

Spectrum Olympics

We could not attend the Olympics since it was rescheduled 3 times because of bad weather and the last date was the same date as Shauna's wedding.  Luckily K was here for the weekend and was able to attend the Olympics and video and take pictures.


Memorial Day
Another rainy holiday for this year.  We ended up just BBQing at home and watching a movie with the cousins.  K and Z practiced face painting for the busy time of year.

Medieval Day

The morning of Spectrum Graduation the 6th grade does a Medieval Day.  It so much fun for the kids.  They dress up and do Medieval activities and then have a feast.  They eat their food with their hands just like Medieval Days.

CR chose to be a jester and entertain the crowds.  He was great!  I got to go and help with the feast and got to see him in action.

This is CR eating his meat.

Mother's Day

I like to have pictures with my children on Mother's Day.  But sometimes it's way too much to ask...

Finally after much bribing and laughing...

This is a pyramid by my sister, "my" mom, and I.  My sister and I were joking around saying that it would be funny and then "my" dad said that "my" mom couldn't do it.  Then "my" mom to prove that she was youthful said "yes I can"  and after a few tries this is what we got.  My mom is very young and youthful.  I love her so much!  I am so grateful for her teachings and example!

Just me!  So grateful for the blessing and joy of being a mother.

Cheer Banquet

At the end of the year there is a Banquet to celebrate the year and to welcome the new cheerleaders into the group.  It was such a fun year for S and loved watching her cheer.
