With out a camera that works to take pictures of our life happenings, I feel this blog is getting boring. Then again, I try to think of the activities we have done the last little while, which makes us seem even more boring. Chuck has had a big project to work on the last little while so he works all day and then comes home and works some more. Seeing as I only work from 8-1 on Mondays and Wednesdays, I have lots of free time. What do I do during this free time you ask?
  • The dishes, laundry, and added grocery store attendance- I try to make a nice dinner now and again.
  • Take naps- being pregnant and a school teacher, I found little time to take a nap during "math time." Now that school is out for the summer, I can take a nap whenever I want.
  • Play cards- I get bored and venture over to my parents house and make them play cards with me. When Chuck gets home from work, I make him play games with me too. If any of you want a game night just let me know!
  • House shopping- I get emails of house listings from our realator and then we look at houses. We haven't found once that catches our fancy yet. I am sure hoping we find a house before little Hunter arrives.
  • Tuesday night baseball games- Chuck and his friends play baseball on Tuesdays. Tonight is their last game. I sadly had a nerve spasm today from my toe to my back and couldn't move that lasted for about 4 minutes. It hurt pretty bad and left my body sore and exhuasted. I'm resting on the couch at the moment.
  • Girls Camp Preparations- With girls camp only a month away, I've been spending time getting ready for that. My most recent adventure was putting together a First Aid Certification Booklet.
  • Camping- Chuck and I have been camping with our friends and to a family reunion in Idaho for the weekend.
  • Summer School- I teach the kindergarteners and first graders reading and math. It can be fun and challenging at times.
  • Baby Stuff- I go to doctors appointments, look on-line for baby things, but I have yet to purchase anything for our little boy. Maybe if we get into a bigger place, I'll start purchasing things.
  • Reading- this is my personal favorite. I enjoy reading, especially when it is for fun. On our honeymoon I read Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. I wasn't really a fan of the story, but I found it interesting. My aunt Lisa is a HUGE fan of the Twilight series and actually has a really huge fan based website that has caused her to be on TV, meet the author, and visit the movie set. With her passion for the stories, I decided to go ahead and read New Moon, I found this story to be better than the first, but still not the best writing I have every encountered. Yet, how many stories are there about vampires and werewolves? (I'm sure there are MORE out there than I'd like to know.) I then decided to read Eclipse, which I finished in a jiffy. Here is the book cover for the sake of posting a picture on this blog post:
  • I have by far enjoyed Eclipse the best out of the series, but I still think the story drags on. I am excited to read the last book in the series Breaking Dawn when it comes out. I would love to see if Bella turns into a vampire in the end. I'd feel like my reading would be a waste if she didn't. We shall see.
  • Chuck's Birthday- He is a 4th of July baby. We celebrated early with our dinner group friends. I had them over for lasagna, garlic bread, salad, and cake. It was fun, especially since card playing was invovled. I'm not sure how we'll spend the actual birthday, but we will figure it out soon enough.

That is pretty much what is going on in my daily life. Such an exciting update, I know. :)

It sounds like you keep pretty busy. I just wanted to say anytime you want a game night give me a call. I would love to see you and catch up. I hope to hear from you soon. And tell Chuck Happy Birthday!

I completely agree with you on the Twilight series--I didn't like the first, the second was simply annoying, then I breezed through the 3rd, and Bella better become a vampire in the 4rth or I'm done. I started reading The Host because I got it for my b-day. It started off a little strange, but I like it better than the Twilight series.

Where are you guys looking for houses? It can be tough, huh. We've been looking mostly in Lehi and Spanish Fork and Springville--that's just what comes up the most in our searches. We still have some more searching to do also but we're hoping to find something by the end of the summer. We have a really good realtor now, though, so it's going much easier. Good Luck in your search!
