Maddi is in 9th grade. She is a legal driver now so she drives to school every morning for her 7:30 class. She is a member of student council. She joined FFA this year and is getting ready to go to Louisville for an FFA convention. She ran cross country again this year as a varsity runner. This year the distance changed from a 4k to a 5k so it was a new challenge. She also started seminary this year. For those that don't know, seminary is kind of like a bible study class. Each year during high school they study a different book of scripture - Old Testament, New Testament, Book Of Mormon, etc... She gets up at 5:30 every morning, gets ready for school, and then does her seminary lesson from 6 - 6:40. Then she leaves for school about 6:50. I am proud of all that she is doing this year!
Olivia is in 3rd grade. She isn't old enough to do much but cheer the others on while they area doing their thing! She is a good sport about it and is happy that her siblings have friends and teammates who have siblings her age so she has company when we are out supporting ☺
Michael and I are still working and trying to get the kids where they need to be when they need to be there. It keeps us busy and we rarely have a quiet night at home but it is fun to watch the kids. I am grateful that we live in a place where the kids can be so involved and that I have a job that allows me to be there with them.
That is a brief summary of our lives right now! Crazy, busy, exhausting. We are always in some kind of a whirlwind of coming and going but I love it. I also love the occasional night at home in pajamas doing nothing. It is getting chillier out now so I love spending the evening by the fire when time allows.
