Singing Beauty

Andrea was part of an all girls singing group at the middle school this year, Vocal Essence. She has had a great time and made wonderful friends!

A big thank you to Mrs. Reep for helping Andrea develop her talents and increase her love for music.

She's still my silly drama queen. I love that about her. Teenagers are tons of fun!

No charge for Awesomeness!

This is a sampling of the beautiful music we have enjoyed all year by the Snow Canyon High School Madrigals. They are shown here qualifying for State where they achieved Superior Ratings. Ryan is on the far left in the large group and in the middle of the Mixed Ensemble Group singing "In Remembrance". It's wobbly camera work - beautiful music! These kids got up early throughout the school year to meet before school and practice. Such dedication and love for music. Awesome! Brings tears to my eyes every time.

Perfect Picnic

The boys' school invited the mom's to come have a picnic lunch last Friday. My guys were soooo excited! A beautiful warm, desert afternoon, with a slight breeze - perfect.

Peanut butter and jelly tastes the BEST while sitting on a blanket on the grass...

Be still my beating heart...I love these guys!

We topped off the afternoon with Baskin Robbins Ice Cream - YUM!
