Well we survived Youth Conference! The kids loved it because it meant that they just spent 3 days playing at their Aunt Patricia's house. (apparently there are lots of things to do there and nothing at our house as I was reminded many times yesterday) I survived the 6 teenage girls staying here and Blake decided that he didn't really need to decontaminate his room since 2 of the girls are babysitters and the other one we used to give rides to church. Unfortunately the other Adult leader was deathly allergic to cats and I have 2 long haired black cats. She had to hide out in the Sydney's room. The worst part was the food that I made. Of course it all tasted great but that just means that I have to restart my diet this week :) Jason survived being the keynote speaker and even took it in stride with some unexpected changes. (It was great!!)

It looks like summer is finally starting since baseball, visitors, girls camps and Youth Conference are finished. We can actually stay at home and play or go to the pool without having some time limit to be somewhere else!

I am going to get some updates on each of the kids done this week. I figure that is a good place to start. If I get this right there should be a picture of our family. It was taken at Christmas for our Christmas card that everyone probably realizes I never got out. Oh well!
