It has been a year and a half since we have seen family in Oregon so we packed up and hit the road. It takes about 13 - 14 hours to make the trip so we stop in Ontario, Oregon and get a hotel and do some swimming. We got in late so we got up the next morning and swam for a few hours and then hit the road again. The traveling went well. We took Sebastian with us and only had one incident with him. Just outside of Bend he decided to pee on Cambrie and the van seat. We learned our lesson and allowed for a few more pit stops along the way.

Today was the last day of school and I have mixed feelings about this. So grateful for the great year we have had. The kids all had great teachers and did very well. Sad because we did have such a great year and hoping we can continue it into the next. The kids were all placed with the teachers they wanted for next year or at least who I wanted. :) No, they really are excited for the teachers they will have and the students/friends that will be in the class with them. I can't believe Cambrie will be in 6th grade. We have been told many times that time flies by, but I am now seeing how true that statement is. Just a little side note... Cambrie was also selected to be on the student council next year at South Weber Elementary. So proud of her and her accomplishments. Parker had a great year with Mrs. Sheffield! He worked hard and learned a lot. She holds a special place in our hearts. Mykenna also had a great year and is so ready to move into 1st grade. Mrs. Peters has prepared her well. We are so grateful for all of our children's teachers and for the great year they have had. On too summer fun!!!!

Wow... what a great soccer tournament Cambrie's soccer team had this weekend. Cambrie missed Friday's game because she was sick. We were hoping keeping her home from school would give her the needed rest so that she would be able to play that night, but she was still feeling pretty lousy. We heard the team did awesome and beat a great team! Saturday she was feeling a little better and wanted to play. Luckily they didn't have to play as strong of a team and she was able to sub out and rest periodically throughout the game. On Monday we came up against the team we played for our division championship game. We won our division and knew they would be playing their best. It was such an intense game. (Yes... again I have become that crazy soccer mom!) Cambrie was teamed up against their strongest player and it stressed me out the entire game. Jaden scored our two goals from kick offs at the mid field line. The first goal was the very first kick off of the game. It bounced right over the keepers head. It was great! The score was two to two at the end of the game so we had to play two five minute over time periods. The score remained the same so we went to a shoot out. Seven members of each team alternated taking penalty kicks and the team with the most goals won. Cambrie was the first to kick and she went for the high kick above the keepers head, but went a little too high and it hit the bar. She was disappointed in herself, but she had a great game. It came down to the last kick to determine the winner, due to some saves by the keepers and other missed kicks. We ended up losing the game, but we are so proud of the girls! Cambrie is done for the season and will practice throughout the summer and start again in the fall. Way to go STRIKERS!!!!
