May this year involved mainly soccer games, scouts, and school. Tristan's team had him, with 2 of his good friends. Jasen's team had him, plus his best friend and 3 other friends. Hunter's team had him and 3 of his friends. And it was really cool because 2 different friends of ours coached Jasen's and Hunter's teams.



At the end of the month, Hunter graduated from preschool, for the second and last time. He did really well with preschool again, and he is so excited that now he gets to go to the "big" school with his brother!

Tristan graduated the DARE program at school this month. He worked hard, and paid attention during the whole course- coming home many times and telling us all about the things he had learned. It cracked me up, because I can remember doing the DARE program when I was his age, and not much has changed!

At the very beginning of April, we had an Easter egg hunt with a bunch of our friends at a park. The kids all had a great time and it was a lot of fun.

Also at the beginning of April, we celebrated Brinley's second birthday! I can't believe how big she's getting, so cute and so smart.

Jasen's GATE class held an egg drop contest, where each kid had to construct something to hold an egg and keep it from breaking after being thrown from the roof of the school. They got extra points for using recycled materials, and also for using as few pieces as possible. Cahl and Jasen found a thick piece of foam, folded it in half, and cut out a small spot on the inside for the egg to snugly fit into. Then they tied the foam together tightly with a piece of string, so his entry only had 2 parts- 1 piece of foam folded to squeeze the egg, and 1 piece of string to hold it. And Jasen won the contest! He had the fewest pieces, and his egg did not break!

At the school awards, Jasen recieved the A-B Honor Roll, and the Attendance award. Tristan also recieved the A-B Honor Roll, the Attendance award, and the Citizenship award.

The end of March

After we got back from our trip, it was back to reality. All three boys played soccer, so we had 3 games every Saturday. It was really nice that they league they played in had all their games at the same field every week. It saved us a lot of splitting up and driving all over town. Also toward the end of March, Cahl and I hiked to the top of Lone Mountain. It's something I have wanted to do for a while, and it was fun. It was really windy that day, but we made it to the top! The view of the city is pretty amazing from up there.

To celebrate our anniversary this year, Cahl surprised me with tickets to see LOVE, the Cirque show at the Mirage. It was so incredible! I'm in love with the Beatles as it is, and seeing that show was a big dream of mine. We had great seats, and the show was beyond fabulous! Thank you Cahl, for making a little dream come true :)
