One Down, One to Go!

I finished my first section of my Anatomy and Physiology class today. Yay! I ended up getting an A- in the class which is good but being the perfectionist I am I want the minus taken off! :) I'll take it though. It has been a long week full of presentations and exams so I am so ready for a 3 day break before the next section starts up on Monday! The boys are going camping for the father sons outing on Friday. I think the girls are just going to be lazy.

P.S. Ava is pretty much potty trained now so so long diapers forever at the Crouch house!!!!

Visit From the Drapers

Our good friends Matt and Toni Draper and their family stayed with us two weekends in a row on their way to and from California. We had a great time with them. We all lived in Reno at the same time. Our Reno friends were awesome! Saturday we headed to Bass Pro Shops which is connected to a casino. One of my classmates is a mermaid in one of the aquariums and they interact with the kids on the weekends. The kids all thought it was really cool. Ava talked about it a lot on Sunday.

After that we headed down to the strip and walked, and walked, and walked. It was pretty hot so we were beat by the time we were done. But, I love to go to the strip and see the fountains at the Bellagio.

The kids knew who to beg for pennies!

We went to M&M world but got there too late for the tour. Even though all of the different colors were neat it wasn't worth $11 a pound!! These were just the colors for the peanut M&Ms.

We saw the lions at the MGM. They were very lazy. They have a recorded lion roar that they play and Ava thought that the lions were very loud. It was a fun weekend! Can't wait to see them again and any other visitors coming our way!!!

Piano Recital

I have tons of catching up to do! A couple of weeks ago the kids had their first piano recital. We started them out a couple of months ago with a girl in our ward who is great!! They are learning so fast. Jerrod played "In the Jungle", Allison played "Shoo Fly" and Emma played "10 Little Indians". I'll have to video them later playing so you can actually hear how they are doing.

And then there were 3

Well, one of our fish finally died. We thought they were going to live forever. They survived Ava feeding them pepper!

Our life has taken paths that I never expected but I am so happy it did! We have had so many awesome experiences and met so many great friends along the way and grown way closer together because of them. Thanks for 13 awesome years babe! Love You!

Career Day

Last week the kids had career day at school so Derek altered a couple pairs of scrubs for Allison and Jerrod and Emma found a chef outfit. I thought they looked cute.
