...and they even had a little recital at the end.
Dave and Max had a bonding adventure together with all the other 16-18 year olds that go to our church up in Moab.
While they were gone, the girls and I worked our tails off cleaning things out at our house, earning this as our reward:
Dance-offs with the teenagers (I'm mad I don't have a pic. of the teenagers but they were mostly just on the floor laughing their guts out).
Lu's summer uniform:
A new nephew:
One nephew was born, one came home from his two-year mission in Argentina:
Max keeps growing:
This is what some 16-year-old boys like to do on weekends around here:
And "sister friends" with creative ideas:
Lots of swim team:
A few of my book club girls decided we should go see The Great Gatsby since we read it this year. It was the craziest of nights but sometimes you just need to say "yes" in the midst of chaos and so Dave sent me off.
And it didn't hurt to come home to the sweetest of notes waiting for me on my bed:
Yes, the summer of 2013 is starting off with a bang.
And although it has been the craziest summer yet, I still love it.
