2010-2011 school year

Another school year has begun! Devan is beginning her Junior year at Gilbert High School! She is attending the East Valley Institute of Technology for Health Occupations courses in the morning and then her regular classes at the school in the afternoon. Corinne is a sophmore at Gilbert High this year and has quite a heavy work load. She is taking advanced Chemistry and World History which give her more homework than she was prepared for. Corinne was selected to be on the junior varsity cheer team for the football and basketball seasons. Kylie is in seventh grade at South Valley Jr High. Kylie is looking forward to changing classes throughout the day and making new friends! Carlie is also in seventh grade at Pueblo Middle School were she attended last year. Kylie and Carlie will be trying out for sports teams this year and we are hoping that they both make it! Sports is such a great outlet for them all! I can't wait to see how the year progresses for each of them!!!

Girls Trip to San Diego

Wow, what a trip, that's the best way to sum up the whole trip! The girls and I left on Saturday after Kylie's last volleyball game and headed off on the freeway for the sunny beaches of San Diego. When we finally got to the hotel after driving around for an hour because our directions from Google Earth were wrong, we realized how hungry we were. So we headed off to Rubio's for some fish tacos!

On Sunday morning, we got up bright and early to enjoy a day at the beach! The girls rode boogey boards, played paddle ball, and laid out on the soft sand! We had a great day!

Sunday night we recovered from our sunburns and sore muscles and enjoyed a great pizza on the boardwalk. Monday we got up and went back to Mission Beach to ride bicycles on the boardwalk.

Although we had some crazy bumps in our road, we had a great trip. We missed Sy and all thought the trip would have been more fun if he would have been there, but we had a great time!
