I did it! I passed my nursing state boards. I am now officially a RN!!!! It's hard to believe that it's actually all over. I get to go on our family vacation with any books. This vacation is going to be awesome.

I always wonder if all my studying will pay off in the end. I feel like I have been living with books constantly in my hands for the last two years. I took my nursing boards today and I don't feel very good about it. When I first started the test, I decided to mark how many I felt like I knew was right. When I got to question 75, I had only marked 7 questions- and then it turned off. That's not good. But I guess I'll know for sure in a few days.

Vegas Nationals

Kaylie's dance team qualified for nationals, which was held in Las Vegas. Max and I decided to make a trip out of it. So we rented a room at the MGM Hotel for 4 days and got sitters for our other kids. We had the wonderful opportunity of taking Kaylie's friend along with us- Madison Curtis- who kept us laughing. We will forever thing of her when we hear the song "Pocket full of Sunshine" (or the dance actions).

Pioneer Trek

Garron and Kaylie went on a pioneer trek for one of their young adult activities. The trek was 3 days up near Springerville, AZ. They said that they walked a lot and that the food was not that great.

Be Afraid!!!

Kaylie after the Trek. Yes! That is dirt! Kaylie's leg when she got home from the trek. They were both just filthy. Whoot!
Kaylie's favorite part of the trek was the feast at the camp when they finished their hike. Garron's favorite part was when they stopped hiking!!!
