Kyle just got his new belt for Karate! He had to show the things he had learned in class. His blocks, kicks, defensive moves... and he was AWESOME!!! I didn't know that he did all the different things in his class. He knew his student oath by heart and could kick 4 times with 1 foot before having to put it down! I was impressed! Jessica was funny to watch through it all, because every time Kyle punched, or kicked, she was doing it on my lap with them and yelling "AIIIYAAA" She even gave him a big hug at the end for doing such a good job! His Karate is now over, and so is soccer and school. Now for T-BALL!! They are a little obsessive about their sports here! But Kyle wants to try, so I'll let him try. If you have any questions give us a call, I usually answer!

May is an interesting month so far. It snowed on the 1st, goes between 70 degrees and 38 degrees depending on the day, and while we want to do yard work, it's always a question what the weather will be like. We are going down to SLC almost every week (sometimes twice a week) for weddings, concerts, lunch and while Kevin grouses about the cost of gas... well it has to be done! While we were in SLC on the 7th for the wedding, we caught a break in the weather (and the pictures!) to go up on top of the Conference Center downtown. It was great to see family, and I have to say that if I'm ever feeling a little short... all I need is to get together with the Shanley clan because I'm the tallest female! No, really... our cousins are great and it was an awesome ceremony. It was so nice to see everyone again and it really made my heart swell to see the groom and his bride so happy.
