Wow! I am finally in the 21st century! I keep seeing all these cute blogs pages, and decided it was time to start one for my family. So here is my story! Clark and I have been married for about 14 and a half years and it's gone by so fast! We live in Springville, and Clark and I both work full time for Central Utah Water Conservancy District. Clark is the Operations and Maintenance guy for the Spanish Fork structures, and I work in the records department. He has worked for them 10 years this September, and I'm a newbie with only 2 years this October. Before the district I worked for 12 years between Mountain View Hospital and Timpanogos Hospital as the computer software support. My job phased out 2 years ago, and hence the career change! I also have my real estate license, but as those of you who live in Utah county know, it is a dead market!
It has been an exciting, and scary year for our family. My brother Robb was called to serve in Iraq with the national guard in June 2007. He was stationed at a "holding facility" where Iraq prisoners were held. He says it was a life changing year (of course) and we are all happy he is now safely home on friendly soil, well Logan anyway! With the life changing turn in my brother's life, I decided it was time to change mine. When I stepped on the scale and realized I weighed more than I had at 9 months pregnant, it was time for a BIG change! I have since lost 40 pounds (with about 20 more to go), and completed my first ever triathlon! I am now getting ready for the Spanish Fork Half marathon on September 6th!
On to the kids..... we have a 14 (will be 15 in October) year old son Caleb who just started 9th grade. He is a great kid, and ends up on the honor roll every term. He is already taking 12th grade math! He is such a good kid, and so far, an easy teenager! It's the other one who gives ma run for my money! Our baby is Aryn and she is 11 going on 21, and just started 6th grade. She is definately our athlete! I always wanted my daughter to be a dancer like me, and I was going to start her early. So when she turned 3, I enrolled her in lessons. It only lasted about a year and she was DONE! Turns out she likes softball! Who knew?
Since this is my first post, I am going to post some pictures from last year. But keep in mind, I am 40 pounds lighter now, and Caleb finally cut his hair!
