Would you believe this kid is only ten? I took this picture to download for his soccer registration and couldn't believe how old he looks. And he won't even be eleven until September. We have been through such a couple of weeks with soccer tryouts. Matthew knew he wanted a new team instead of the Hornets this year so the hunt and the tryouts began. I will spare us all and sum it up. Five tryouts of which he made three teams. I think we changed our minds about which team to go with four times. But hopefully now we have the perfect fit. It better be, no way am I going through that again any time soon!

Oh, poor neglected little blog! I have lost my drive to blog I guess. Instagram and Facebook are so much faster. But I was looking back over old posts and realized as much as I felt like I was blogging in the past I wish there were even more details of our lives. So I am going to try again! Even if it is just a summary of what is going on and it is only for my own enjoyment. So here is last Saturday.
In the afternoon Brittany and I went out to search for the perfect flowers for the yard. My mom has trained her since she was tiny to be an expert flower planter. Of course the super-reader cannot be without a book for any length of time. We went to a couple more nurseries and found just what we needed. I have spent the last couple of days trying to keep them alive until we can plant them tomorrow.

This week is Spring Break around here. For our family that has meant going down to Moab for the last two years. I admit to some reluctance. I am not a naturally born hiker and I have really bad ankles that I spend the whole time babying in an hopes that my family won't have to carry me off a mountain someday. But, all that said, we really had a good time. We just got home tonight and I have to post these before I forget everything. This is going to be picture heavy, but who are we kidding, it is mostly just for our family.
Josh thought it was a great place for sunbathing/napping. Silly kid!
The next day we started with the hike to Delicate Arch, the major attraction. Matthew really does not love this hike. It involves slickrock which for some reason he hates. Also, he has discovered he has a fear of heights to we you get to the very end he has to make himself push to the top. I was really proud of him for making it. We can do hard things! I kept telling him that and he kept telling me he didn't have to like it. I agree, and the sooner he learns that one the better!
The next day we left Moab and headed for Goblin Valley. The kids love Goblin Valley. It is a bizarre place full of fun stuff to climb on.
Brittany and Mom, trying to prove that I actually was on this vacation.
Brittany on top again.
