So these past few weeks have been crazy, and it's only going to get more crazy. So first off we went to Bear Lake last weekend with 3 other couples who we have been friends with for a long time. Meghan's grandparents own a cabin up there. It was kind of like the last hoorah before we move. It was a lot of fun. 
On another note, school has been super busy. I have cleared out my classroom and it looks really sad. I think it makes the kids sad, but they also know it's almost over so they're crazy at the same time. We have been able to do a lot of fun things now that testing is over!! I am going to miss my school sooooo much. I had a very interesting class this year, and not to say that I am not going to miss them, but I am ready for a break. I got a job for next year as a third grade teacher. I am excited to be going back to 3rd grade. I loved 2nd as well, but I dealt with a lot more crying (not me, them, although sometimes I felt like I wanted to). It's going to be hard for any school to compete with Spring Creek. Provo school district is really nice compared to a lot of places. It's interesting because I am sure my new school won't have everything Spring Creek has, but I will get paid like 4 thousand dollars more. So there is a trade off I suppose. Anyway, we're excited because now we can probably buy a house! 
I have to say I am sooo sad to leave Provo. When I first got here I didn't think I would get attached at all, but it feels like home to us now. There are so many things that I am going to miss like, all of our friends, Cafe Rio (funny that it came to my mind before everything else), Provo River Trail, our garden, the mountains, Spring Creek, BYU sports, BYU everything, our house, and mormons everywhere! It has been such a blessing to be here. I have learned so much and have made so many good friends who I know I will keep in touch with. Everyday I say stuff like, "oh this might be the last day I drive on this road." Or, "This might be the last time we sit out on our porch." 
All that being said, we are excited for the move to Colorado, and I will be happy to be near family and friends again.

Craziness getting in that water!

BYU track runners come to play kickball! They were very good at getting them hyper!

Our sweet limo. One of the parents owns a limo business, so I made a deal with him at the beginning of the year, if all my kids passed their 2nd grade sight words we could take a limo ride. It was awesome. We drove around, went to a park, ate donuts, and acted like movie stars.
