STRANGE YOU SAY?
I SAY IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS!
My boys got to "volunteer" at the track meet at BYU last Saturday. What a great experience for them to get the grand tour from this amazing athlete and for their mom to live out her old glory days with them. I loved sharing the track with them. Just seeing the wonder in their eyes as they watched the old guys run the 50 M Yard Dash and the long jump and shot put was enough to excite me. Maybe one of them will want to grow up and be just like me? Then I thought, Isaac (likely) Ethan (very unlikely). That boy hates walking down the street.
It sometimes seems like a lifetime ago that I was out on the track doing my thing. I sometimes feel so old and like I can't stick with it anymore. All I can say is if you're 80 and still "sticking with it", then so can I.
I feel inspired! I'm off to go run some laps.

Here is Miss Abby in Heaven with her best friend "Dacey" AKA Jace riding the John Deere during a recent irrigation at cute grandma Liston's farm.
I even found Abby up high on the ladder picking and eating cherries from the trees. Thanks to Becky, this has become a summer favorite for our kids. Here's to hoping we get one more good "water turn" before summer's end.

We recently discovered Spanish Fork Reservoir. It is, in our opinion, Utah County's best kept secret!
Jus and I have taken the kids a couple of times over the past week so they can swim and fish! If you haven't gone, you should before it gets too cold. The water is very clear as it comes form a fresh mountain spring and it's stocked with tons of trout!

Has anyone noticed that I have been AVOIDING my blog?
I really could not figure out how to fix things up.....
Thanks to my sweet and smarty hubby for his time in applying the code my sweet and smarty friend Amy O gave us! It's good to have things back up and running.
Oh, and we have a new camera, so watch me go!

I was listening to some old tunes the other day and came across a Dave Matthews Band song from long ago. He played at my college homecoming at SMSU my freshman year. That was before his music was as famous. It was an awesome experience to see them in such a small venue! His music totally reminds me of that chapter in my life. Well, I always adored his "fire dancer" logo. In fact, I remember thinking on several occasoins: "If I ever get a tattoo, that would be what it would be of." Thank goodness I never gave in to that silliness. Not that I am calling any of you reading that have a tattoo silly....I just think I would have really regretted that decision now that I am thirty something. I still love the band and the logo but not so much that I would have wanted it permanently attached to my body! Oh, how we grow up.....

We said goodbye to a sweet and special boy who had an infectious smile and dimples that we'll never forget. It is so difficult in moments like these to understand such tragedy. I know that he is in heaven smiling that bright shiny smile down on us.
I feel overwhelmed with gratefulness to have gotten to be his Sunday School teacher these past few years. He has touched my life with his powerful spirit. I am appreciative my boys got to have such an amazing friend in their lives.
I stand astonished at his unbelievable family and their outstanding example.
But it's not really goodbye, it's we'll see you later......
We Love you, We miss you dearly.
