Leaps and Bounds--Lucy at 8 Months

Today is Lucy's 8 month birthday!

Lucy has developed leaps and bounds over the past few days. We are now full crawling, moving from the military crawl, and pulling up to stand. Lucy loves baths, blowing raspberries, and cats.

A few photos from today:

Delivering the Mail

While I was in high school as one of my elective classes I took a fascinating class on the history of the American West. I love history and this class was especially interesting because it was on local history. I loved hearing the stories of the great outlaws like Billy the Kid and of the pioneers that settled the area. For a field trip we drove out to the middle of no-where to where the original Pony Express Trail was. At that time there was nothing around; just sagebrush and jackrabbits.

Now there is a town and I happen to live in it. One of the perks of living along the Pony Express Trail is that I get to see events like this:

A Pony Express reenactment. The riders started in Sacramento and will continue out to St. Joseph, Missouri. (Usually they start in Missouri and end in California.)

Olivia, being the horse-lover that she is, was excited to touch the horse that was getting ready to head out.

A new rider and a new horse, they are heading out to deliver the mail.

Following the unveiling of a new statue of a rider taking the oath, we enjoyed cake. I look forward to when Olivia is older and we can really talk about some of the wonderful history that surrounds us.

Do you live by any historical areas that do reenactments?

Busy on Thursdays

I've have a new calling at church for the last three weeks. After a tearful goodbye to my last calling (Ward Music Director--which I REALLY loved) I received a new calling. Yep, I'm doing Cub Scouts and I actually really enjoy it. :)

Whistling Tea Pots--a Dance Performance--Updated

Olivia's first dance performance. Two dance, first a tap number ("Whistle While You Work") and a jazz routine ("I'm a Little Teapot"). I had a huge grin the entire time while my little girl was on stage! Livy has been in dance for a little over two months. There wasn't a class for her age group so she is in one with five years olds (she turned three in March). She has done remarkably well!
