I am overwhelmed. I just spent 20 min writing a big long post about it but it turns out that it was mostly just me rambling on and on about how guilty I feel. Im coaching soccer again and I LOVE it. But high school soccer is time consuming and I hate the time it is taking away from my kids, especailly with AnDee starting school next week. When am I gonna see her?!
All that is beside the fact though. The fact is that I am crazy busy, really overwhelmed and sucking at this blog thing.
So here is my sad attempt to cram a few of the insane amount of things I need to blog about into one post. Sorry for yet another random post but here goes...
We started cleaning out the few remaining boxes from moving (yes.. a year later) Which mostly just consisted of throwing everything on a trailer to go to a yard sale. AnDee and Pep found a couple of the souvenirs we brought home from Zanzibar. The hat has become one of Peps favorites. 

 The kids like to steal my phone and take 10 billion pictures in 5 seconds flat. I know that seems impossible but I swear they can do it. I end up with a lot of random pictures of Pep mostly. Lots of the ground, the sky, the trees and dirt too.
 Pep has muscles!
 AnDee fell out of a tree. The tree won the fight.
 Pep is very confident in who he is. He pulls off a tutu whilst holding a jar of bugs like no one I have ever seen.
 Ike is a super hero.
 Daddy makes the kids' day when he gets the pit bike out and takes them for rides around the yard.

 We got a new toy
 The toy has now been upgraded with a roll cage and roof over the back seat and a new forward facing bench seat in the back with 3 buckles so all three kids can ride.
Mom is very pleased with this new toy.
 A couple of weeks ago we spent part of our afternoon walking around the temple. It was lovely. It was nice and cool and just relaxing and fun. (Pep is a goober. His pics crack me up)

 Here are some side by side pics of all three of my kids at about 5 months. Pretty sure Ill never have a kid that loooks anything like me. I was hopeful with Pep because he was fat but no one ever looks at him and says "oh you look like your mom!" no... they all say "wow. you look like Andrew's mini me"
Oh well, I guess God knows what he is doing cause they are all stinking adorable
 Pep is still playing around with the idea of the potty but he isn't real serious about it. I am however getting tired of the diapers. Maybe when soccer season is over and we are home a little more we will really dig in to it.... maybe.
 This little man is the best! I had to take him with me to a 5 hour first aid /cpr training. He was perfect the entire time. The nurses teaching the class kept telling me that they hoped he was an awful baby at night because no one should have a baby that good. He's not. He's an angel at night too. He has been sick lately and it breaks my heart to hear his pathetic  little cough but he doesn't complain. Im in love with him.
 AnDee had her preschool open house this morning. She of course had to take her giant backpack with her. She is so excited for school she can hardly stand it. And Im already getting teary eyed just thinking about it. I am in no way emotionally prepared for this.
 Pep had to get in on the action with his sweet batman backpack. He still thinks going to school sounds scary. And Im ok with him thinking that.
