Last Day

I can't even believe it.

Today is the last day of school. Not just for the kids, but for Joel, too! Crazy. I'm not really sure where this year went.

I am having difficulty believing that Bria will be in the 4th grade next year. Just doesn't seem right. And Chloe will be a big first grader. And Sophie will actually be going to preschool. Where did my babies go?

I'm flying to Michigan bright and early tomorrow morning. Say a little prayer for me and cross your fingers that I will find us a place to live!

Oh, and if you really feel like it, go vote over at The Utah Bubble. Some of the other mommy bloggers are making big campaign promises if they win. Stuff like promising to get pregnant this year and posting pictures of herself in a sports bra. One of them is even offering a check to one of her followers for $250 dollars. Wow.

I can't compete with that folks. Besides, you don't actually win anything in this contest except the knowledge that you are the most loved mommy blogger in Utah. And that's not even true when you really think about it. You win the satisfaction of knowing that you are the one who campaigned the hardest to get the most votes.

I've done that before. And I am not going to do it again. So, if you haven't voted, go vote because it's a fun contest. I have other fish to fry. Like finding a house.

Now, if winning this contest promised me I would find my dream house at my dream price, well then, that'd be totally different and I'd be campaigning like crazy!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Wish it was MY last day! We still have 2 weeks. Crazy.

    Good luck with the house hunt! Hope you find your dream house at your dream price (or at least a reasonable price, since if your dream price is like mine, it would be free!).

  2. Yay! School's out for the summer. :) We finished homeschooling yesterday, and just have music left. I love it and it'll be a lot of fun to finish that course with the girls.

    Good luck house hunting!

  3. The last day here is June 3rd. And the police are out i8n full force, trying to catch kids sluffing, during these last couple of weeks. It's been super busy at work!

  4. Our year ends June 4. Then I'll be happy for about 24 hours, at which time I'll be counting the seconds until school STARTS again. Not a big fan of summer vacation; my kids spend most of it watching TV or attempting to move the pool into the house, one drippy swimsuit at a time.

    Michigan is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL place, Lara. I'm hoping you'll be pleasantly surprised. And best of luck on that house hunt. Kind of chapter one in the big adventure, huh?

  5. a. There is no dream house.
    b. OMG 4th grade, that's scary.
    c. How are the girls about the move? Is B sad this is her last day, are you gonna have a little party for her before you move?

  6. Good luck. I hope you find a great house for a great price right where you want to live. I also hope you have a great time with your mom. Hopefully it will be enjoyable not too stressful.

  7. Good luck finding a house. I know you can do it!

    And I feel exactly the same way as you do about Ethan being done with school. They're growing up so fast.

  8. Our last day was yesterday, so as I write this, I have a little 6 year old sitting next to me reading every word I write. She wants to play on disney.com, so I think I had better hurry this up!

    You are in my prayers - I know you'll find the house you're looking for! And, I already voted for you - and I'll ask my dh to do so, too!

  14. I can't believe how fast this year went by, either. And next year will be a new adventure in a new place!!!
    And of course I vote for your blog, even if I don't live in Utah!

  16. Enjoy your summer!

    We're in year round school here, so we're slogging through a hot summer until early July in school. (sigh)

    good luck this weekend!

  18. Yes, those younger years for your babies really do fly past sooo fast.

    Best of luck in the house hunt!

  19. Yeah, the fourth grade thing blows me away too. And Christian going into KINDERGARTEN? That and being baby hungry, just doesn't help!

    Good luck in Michigan!

  20. I can't believe you're moving to Michigan! (Congrats, Joel, on your last day of school!) Housing might be really cheap since the market has plummeted to much there...

    It will be sad every time we pass the Cedar City. We always think of you and Joel when we drive to and from UT. We were hoping to plan a visit one of those time, too!

  21. I hope you love Michigan! So glad that I'll still get to see you around blogdania when you move!

  23. I voted!

    And I really really hope you find a house. Michigan...not very far from Minnesota. Hmmmmm :)

  24. Good luck house hunting! Destry and I go to Baltimore the first weekend in June to do the exact same thing! Stressful. I've sworn myself off craigslist until the week we go.
