Off to St. George

Well the week is winding down.  End of quarter for Jessica and JJ.  They have done well.  So happy for Jessica and all her hard work.  It is and will pay off.  

JJ played a soccer game Tuesday night.  They tied.  It was a good game.  Always things to learn.  It is fun to watch these 10 year old boys out there fighting for the ball.  Such good exercise for them.  
I had a meeting tonight with my favorite women to work with.  They are so great and I feel so blessed to be working with them.  Also, so happy they are my friends.  Great examples and so fun to be with.  I actually look forward to my meetings with them.  I miss them if we don't meet.  I guess that is good.  Makes our callings more fun when we work with such great people.  

I am off  to pick up my mom and heading to St. George to spend a few days with Kay.  She is down there with her trailer so we are going to go play.  This will be so fun.  We are all excited.  My wonderful perfect man is going to do the kids running around and school work and church work and all that cooking and cleaning stuff.  He is so great and so supportive and good to let me do this.  So lucky to have my man.  I love him.  He is the best.  Jessica asked me who she is going to talk to till 3 a.m.  I told her "me".  She is just going to call me every night and tell me all her adventures.  Great fun.  We have some good laughs and cries together.  

Megan will be working the night shift most the time I am gone.  She works way too hard.  But doing so good in almost being a R.N.  Oh so close.  Way to go girl.

Monday night for family night we all did P-90x.  Now this is a new exercise video series that is crazy fun to do.  It is hard and we all huff and puff and laugh.  We are doing the arms and shoulders this night.  I took some funny pictures that I am going to try to post.  It actually was quite fun. Takes us about 1 our and 15 minutes to do it all and then the next day we all compare which muscles are the most sore.  Jessica did the legs on Friday or Saturday and was still quite sore come Monday.  

We finished the night with lots of water drinking, reading and then bed.

Thursday I almost went and got JJ from school to bring him home and pick up after himself. Can you believe that every room I entered there was evidence that JJ had walked into it.  It was toilet paper in both bathrooms on the floor (now how does that happen) socks in my bedroom, hat on the stairs, balls by the door, jacket on the box seat, book on the new couch.  Need I say more. I decided it was my fault for not being a good mother and making him do more jobs.  That way he will notice more of his messes if he is cleaning more.  So the list is coming out and back to the job chart on the fridge.  Let's see how that goes.  

Last night after we did math and practiced his piano, Jessica and I showed JJ the duet I want him to play at my piano recital.  He took a look at the music and listened to us play it and said, "I can't do that".  I said, "oh yes you can."  I showed him some patterns and gave him a couple of lines to do.  About a half hour later he had the whole song learned.  Yup, the whole song and it is not that easy.  Jessica and I just laughed and were amazed.  Kids can do anything they want if they are willing to work at it and love what they are doing.  He is quit the piano player.  It is fun to keep the piano tradition going.  

Jeff is down in Helper helping his dad.  Peas will be planted this weekend. Yum. We always miss him when he is gone but know that he needs to help down there too.  Grammy and Bapa are out of town this weekend.  Next weekend it  looks like mom and I will head to St. George to spend the weekend with Kay in her trailer.  That should be fun.

Trying to figure out this blog thing.

Ok, so after reading some blogs, I am  being inspired to start my own.   I have always been a journal writer so I might as well keep it here too so family and friends can enjoy.  (I guess)  Of course the private stuff will still be in my written journals.

So I am trying to figure out how to make a cute background.  I found one at a different website so I need my Megan to show me what to do.  I have tried and tried and now I am running on reserve battery so I better finish up for tonight and wait for my Meg.

Here are the Tallerico's.  Fun to have them come.  
On August 14, 2008 Megan and Curtis got married in the Bountiful Temple.  It was a perfect day.  This is a small portion of our family that came to the wedding earlier that day.  Nice to have those that could make it.  Aunt Les, Uncle Ronnie, Marcie, Mia and Holly came a little later.  I will add their picture.
