Ashton is 6 months old already! I can't believe how fast the last 6 months have gone. I'm not sure how much he weighs now but he was 18lbs. at 5 months so I'm sure he's close to 20lbs.

I came home from the gym this morning to find Kaleb in our bed. He said that I can't workout when he's still sleeping. I asked him why and he told me because the birds haven't woken up yet. He's always good for a laugh. Kaleb starts swimming lessons the beginning of August and then preschool the end of August.

Matt has finals next week and then he'll have a couple weeks with no school until fall semester (his last semester!) starts.

I don't mean to be a downer but while searching through blogs there have been a couple of blogs I always look at. I don't even know the people but they have all recently lost a child. I think I am so drawn to their blogs because of the strength they have. I couldn't imagine going what they've gone through and yet they're so strong and positive. It has helped strengthen my testimony of this gospel. I think the biggest effect it has had on me is that I enjoy every moment I have. I have been a lot more patient since following these families' stories. I don't mind the crying and the messy diapers as much as I use to. My prayers are with the families of James, Lucy, Camille, Joy , and Daxton.

I love your kids April! I need to find more time to spend with them. So are we going camping soon?
