Our life is about to get pretty crazy with the end of law school approaching, the job search intensifying, and we are about to enter our 2 months of back to back birthdays. Here are some things we have been up to lately, so I do not get too far behind.

Last week was the 3L Banquet for Chuck's graduating class. It was a nice night of dinner and toasts with friends. One of the wonderful things about being at a small school is feeling so a part of everything. I love going to events with Chuck at school to see his friends that he spends so much time with and how much he enjoys it.

Chuck was one of the few people that were asked to give a speech/toast. Most were jokes, poems, and such, but Chuck's speech was very sincere and from the heart. He did a great job and it made me tear up as I listened to him talk about how much we have been welcomed into this law school community as transfers and as not your "typical" law student. He said "as a 32 year old Mormon, with a wife and 2.8 kids." We have made some great friends over these last 2 years and I'll be excited to come back for Law reunions and see them all.

Lucy has grown up significantly in the last month - physically and socially. She grew out of her church shoes in a matter of 2 weeks. She wore them to church one week, then last Sunday I literally could not get them on her feet. Most of her 2T pants are high waters on her, good thing we are approaching shorts weather. I have put her hair in pigtails a few times lately and it makes her look so grown up to me.

Leland and Lucy are becoming such great sisters. I love watching them play and interact with one another. They get so excited to see each other after taking naps or being apart during the day. They play well together most of the time. The other morning they had been watching a show and I come out front to see them cuddled up together on their little couch. Usually Lucy sits in the little couch and Leland in on the big couch.

Since most of my girlfriends will be gone for the summer, we had a baby shower last week for my friend Heidi and I who are both due in July. It was a fun evening and we made onsies like the ones we did a few months ago for other new mommies. Thanks girls!

We have had such a great year with our TNLC. It's been a great group of friends and we have had a lot of fun. I'm going to miss TNLC so much. The planned one night a week that I have to go out with the girls and have fun. Chuck has been so supportive and recognized how important it is to me to have that time with my friends.

We have had some nice Spring weather off and on lately. Every chance I get, I take my girls to the park. They LOVE the park. Lucy yells "Slide!" whenever we drive past, which is every time we leave the house since the park is at the end of our street.

I love watching them run themselves ragged. Lucy has no fear at the park and loves going down the slide head first. I love this picture of Leland and the excitement on her face.


  1. You guys are so cute. Lucy is getting so big it's hard to believe. Such good girls you have though... they were a dream to put to bed the other night.

  2. It's hard to believe we are all almost done. I agree with you though, I think I will miss TNLC the most, it's been such a good outlet for us all. Thanks for talking with me again!
