I just realized that it has been almost an entire year since my last blog post.  To say that I have been busy is an understatement.  But, hopefully I can be better at posting some of our fun on here!

Ryan makes photo books each year and I have a crazy good memory and remember all of the stories that go with them, so I forget that we need to write them down so that someday the family will know them too.

The girls continue to be amazing and beautiful.  They are smart and funny....and don't get me wrong sometimes they are down right naughty.  They have grown up a bit too much for my liking this past year.  Maddie has enjoyed playing the violin and piano and reading like a crazy person.  Mia played basketball and had a wonderful time, Carrie learned to read and reads EVERYTHING in sight!!!  Callie has solidified her role as youngest child and has grown into a spunky, chatty, eating everything, dancing, bike riding machine.

Ryan is always busy with work and church.  He loves his job at ACHD and has done wonderful work on several projects around the Boise area...a few of which have won awards!!  He is the best dad always shooting hoops, playing four square, hop scotch, or telling "Ryerella" stories at bedtime.  I do so love him!!!!

I have been working hard this year to become an AFAA certified BODYVIVE  and Silver Sneakers instructor at AXIOM.  It has been a lot of hard work and extra hours of reading and studying, but I am enjoying every minute!  I was also able to teach a workout class for our Relief Society sisters for about 6 was really so much fun.  I was also the Volunteer Coordinator on the PTO board for Mt. View Elementary...that was a fun experience, but will happily be stepping down for next year. 

We are looking forward to a fun, busy, boring, lazy, hot, spend the day at the pool summer!  The girls are all old enough that I can just send them out to the back yard and not have to be right there watching over a toddler.  I thought that this day would never come, but here it is....and it is really a little bit sad.
