Really, Are You Surprised?

I'm hopeless. Even when I set a goal for a weekly update, I still can't get my rear into gear. In my defense though, we have been busy.

We've had all 6 of our birthday's in the last 2 months. I also started watching my neice 3 days a week which has kept me busy. I realize that this should just give me some material to post, but, as you can see, I am struggling to make the time to sit and do some posts.

We've also been busy with the Springs sporting season. Both Gavin and Emily were in soccer (I say were, because Emily's last game was Tuesday). Between the 2 of them we've had between 2-3 games a week. This was a cold and rainy season, so it was hard to get any "action" shots. We were either bundled up in a blanket, hiding underneath an umbrella, or in the rush to get people where they were supposed to be, I would forget my camera altogether.

Spencer has also been very busy with his school track team. He has been training for the discus and shotput events. He has worked very hard and has really enjoyed being a part of the team.

Tim and I also went out of town last week. We went to Phoenix for a DRI conference for Tim and had such a fun time. It was a totally adult trip and I couldn't have needed it more. It has been a long and stressful winter for the both of us and it was so nice to just spend some time together as well as some other very fun and entertaining adults.

We stayed at a really nice resort and spent lots of time relaxing and basking in the hot sun. Also, Tim's boss was extremely generous and bought a round of golf for him (his favorite thing) and a massage for myself (my favorite thing) while we were there. The whole trip was heavenly (minus the day I was sick, boo hoo). It honestly couldn't have come at a better time.

Anyway, I PROMISE I will do another "catch-up" post tomorrow with a lot more pictures (my computer is running really slow right now for some reason). But until then, I can at least give you some of the sports pictures that I did take.

Don't be too hard on yourself. It is hard to find time to sit down and blog when you are chasing kids in 100 different directions. Sounds like you have had some fun times. Adult vacays are always nice and they help you refill your tank.
BTW- Happy Birthday!
