Another Late Update...

So a lot has happened since.....February? Geez I'm a slacker!! But now that school is finally out I can finally blog!! Here's what we've been up to. I'll post our Europe trip soon...but don't hold your breath haha!

Scottie finally came home from his THREE MONTH accouting internship with
RSM McGladrey. I was so excited to finally have him home that I got a little carried away with the signs...

Chelcie helped me put up missing posters around the house....we thought we were pretty funny.

I'm so glad to have Scottie home so I can finally:
-hang out with him
-snuggle before bedtime
-go on a date
-not be so lonely
-not be scared that someone will try to break in my house....haha
-have him kill the spiders
-make dinner for two
there's so much more but I won't bore you

Welcome home babe!!


For Easter weekend we met up with Scott's family in Brianhead. We stayed at the Spruce Haven Cabin just like last year! We had a blast playing card games, eating junk and of course....hitting the slopes!

Scottie and I in an intense game of California Speed....I always get so frustrated because I never win.

Me & Josie (Scottie's Niece)

I think Scottie is about to sneeze in this one...sorry babe.

While we were skiing they had people skiiing/boarding down the hill and then across this big pool of water! I don't think I would have the guts to do this mainly because you have to gain a lot of speed to get across the water to avoid falling in (going to fast freaks me out) and second of all I wouldn't want to go for a dip in the frigid waters? But it was fun entertainment.

I think this guy sprayed us all....and then I was done.

Happy Easter!


The month of May is every teachers favorite month. Not only because school is finally out but because of Teacher Appreciation Week! This years theme was Rock Star Teachers. Each day they pampered us with Breakfast or Lunch (which was always yummy) and they set out each teachers favorite snack throughout the day to munch on during recess or prep! On Friday they had us dress up like rock stars and the teachers got to play Rock Band during the assembly for the kids! I think I have the best room mothers in the whole world!! Each day for the whole week they would come in for an hour and kick me out to "Go take a break, kick my feet up, call my husband" While I was away they were secretly getting to work for a surprise. Every day after lunch I would come back and find these wonderful pieces of work! Thanks Marilyn & Amy It really was a fantastic pamper week :-)

My rockin A-track class
Me and my little Ash, gotta love this girl! I think I'll stick with being blond and stay away from the pixie.

The Heartbreakers (band members left to right: Misty Hall, Christie Lamb, Christine Mair, Chelcie Christensen). Yes, we did perform live in front of the whole school. Can you guess who was nominated to sing?
The last day of school was really sad. I have really grown close to all of my kids & parents this year and wish I could have them again next year. Scottie always laughs because at the beginning of each school year I always freak out that my kids personalities aren't as cute and fun as my last class, but then I always end up TOTALLY loving them and not wanting to let them go to second grade. I know.... I'm a mixed up teacher.

It was so good to see you guys this last weekend. Even if it was so short :( I hope you guys come to S. Utah soon so we can hang out some more. I'm glad you updated your blog I like to see what you two are doing.

Oh the good old teacher appreciation days at the pony! Yeah, they definitely and I mean definitely don't do anything in Wyoming. What the???? I miss having room moms! I'm glad you got caught up, it's fun to see what you have been up to!!

Tiercy said...

Glad you are back in the blogging world. = )

I LOVE your nephew's name, so dang cute.

And those signs you made for your hubby are darling.

You are such and awesome teacher and we MISS YOU! Ethan talks about you quite a bit. The other day he was getting his hair cut and the girl asked him if he was excited that it was summer. His response: No, because I miss my teacher. Seriously, I am NOT making this up. So cute.

Can't wait to hear about your trip.
