Busy Spring

So I haven't blogged in a while (funny how many of us start our blogs that way). But it's true. Spring is usually a pretty busy time for people and school has been especially crazy lately. The yearbook is d-o-n-e done. I took our insert to the printer yesterday. Of course we'll have to go through the proofing process, but for the most part I'm done. It's been a stressful year for me. I know I just need to calm down, and let things happen. I guess I have trust/control issues. Next year should be better. I think I get better every year, so here's to lucky year number 3 :)

Anyway, you might ask what has been keeping me busy, but for the most part I can't think of anything. I did have a dance recital last weekend that I have been practicing two or three times a week for the last month. I started clogging again this year with the Performance Clogging class and my friend Kassie. I'm not as good as I remember, but I sure have a good time whether I can keep a beat or not (hehe). My mom and dad drove down for one of the performance nights. I think they had a pretty good time. No matter how I did, Jeanna's Dance Works puts on a pretty great show. We have some amazingly talented dancers. I'll post pictures soon when I get my cord and camera in the same place.

Other than that, I've been watching baseball, doing relief society things, Core testing, and planning a bridal shower of my dear cousin. I keep thinking of these cool ideas, so I am pretty stoked about it.

Next up: Holland, my younger (not little) brother, is graduating from Dixie State College in St. George. I'll take any excuse to hang out with my family, so I'm driving down to watch him do his thing. I even got a sub. Man, I must love that guy. :) After that is a busy Mother's Day. I am throwing a shower on Saturday, but bringing my mom down to my young single's branch on Sunday. Kassie and I are making dinner for our moms after church, so hopefully we think of something good. I haven't really had to cook since I moved in with the Browns. The next week is the week yearbooks get delivered, and we distribute them on G-day. Hopefully everything runs smoothly. I don't really want to be a space case :) After that, my first set of students graduate from high school and can therefore call me Arti. They are awaiting the privilege anxiously. I'm beginning to think I'll miss them.
I can't believe how quickly summer is approaching with its own set of adventures.
So much is coming so quickly, but I guess it will give me a lot to blog about. Later.

Spring is coming?

So it snowed today again, and I am getting bummed. Last Saturday the entire Brown family was in town (the people I currently live with) and I spent the morning outside babysitting 20 ish grand kids. Don't worry, there were a couple of other kids (students of mine and neighbors) helping out. They are such good kids and we had a blast. I love the Browns-- all of them. I didn't think about sun screen so most of us got sun kissed, but now I'm ready for the sun to be out all the time. We had a baseball double header yesterday, but it rained so I didn't go. And I am currently sitting inside on a Friday with nothing to do. If the sun were out, I could come up with a million things. I guess I'll go grade papers, or nap, or watch a movie. Yeah, that sounds just about as boring as life can get. Spring! Where are you?
