Well, I have been in school for 12 weeks now. I have learned a lot more about hair, nails and makeup than I ever thought was possible. I always wondered why it took 2 years or a total of 2000 hours, which ever comes first, to be a Cosmetologist. Now I know. I'm actually a little nervous even after all that I've learned. I was more confident before when I thought I knew what I was doing. I know, sounds crazy. I took my written and floor test this week and passed both with a score of 89% on both. Weird that I got the same score on both. For the next 2 weeks, I will be a protege to another future professional. After that, I'm privileged to service guests, with supervision of course, we are still a school. So, make your appointments now.

New Spectacles

My glasses have been wired together for a while now and I finally got a new pair. I decided to go with the plastic frames with no nose pieces because almost every pair of glasses I'v ever owned has broken on the bridge or the nose pieces. They are a little hard to get used to but I love them none the less.

July 4th fun!

We have had a great few days. Matt went to Salt Lake on Thursday and won't be back until tomorrow (Monday) I have taken the kids swimming a few times, we've watched a bunch of movies and had tons of junk food! We also set of fireworks last night without Daddy. I'm telling you, we partied hard.

The kids were being big helpers by handing me the fireworks.

The family across the street was lighting their fireworks at the same time.

The neighbor family came over and shared some sparklers with the kids.

Our first watermelon

WE have a small garden in our backyard that is producing peppers, onions, tomatoes, pumpkins, and watermelons. Matt has harvested some of the peppers and onions, but I only have pictures of the watermelon. It's was pretty big, but it wasn't ripe yet. Anyone know how to tell when a watermelon is ripe? We'd love to know.

We went to the park for a birthday party where the kids had a ball. Most of the parks here have a splash pad. SPencer and Kia could play all day in the water. Wesley on the other hand, loves to explore.
