This summer has been a summer like none other in my life.
There has been good. There has been bad.
It’s not over yet, but I’m utterly exhausted. I would love nothing more to fill you in with a word filled post about all our goings-on this summer, but today—like every other day for the past month—is going to be crazy busy. We are getting ready for the movers to come tomorrow and cart all our things to Louisiana.
Instead, I’ll have to be satisfied with a picture documentation of the last several weeks.
On the 3rd day of my 3 day drive from San Antonio to Provo, UT with my two boys I received a call that my mom had passed away at her home in California. After attending Evo Conference in Park City, UT. I packed the boys up in the car and headed to San Diego, CA for a week.

The following day we had a memorial service for my mom. Each of her 10 living children spoke and gave a short tribute about our favorite memories and the legacy she left.
Upon returning to Provo we were greeted with my husband’s family reunion and a terrible stomach flu. Keep in mind that I was 14 weeks pregnant and already nauseated and totally exhausted.
Despite that we managed to eventually have a good time.

Giant bubbles are always a hit!
When almost everyone had left to go back home The Husband arrived (he missed his family reunion—so sad). A couple days later we had the WONDERFUL opportunity to see him receive his Ph.D. At the age of 31 and after 7 years of marriage, I am finally not the spouse of a student!
We spent the past two days driving back to San Antonio. I’m pregnant, sore, and sooo glad to be home and with my husband again!
Tomorrow the movers come, pack us up, and we will begin another chapter in our lives for the next few years. Unfortunately, we’ll be husband-less and dad-less for yet another week, but, in comparison to the past few weeks, it won’t be too bad.
I appreciate how patient you all have been with my lack of regular blog posts. I guess you can see why it’s been difficult for me to find the time lately.
My life should settle down in the next two weeks, and let me tell you, I’m so looking forward to it!
Update: My husband pointed after he read my post that I forgot to mention that while I was gone in Utah our house in San Antonio was burglarized…twice. Louisiana, you’d better be nice! :)
