Wow! It has been forever since I've posted. I haven't forgotten about it just not being in the right mindset to sit and type. The Reese family has had an eventful few months. I will post some pictures later, but I thought I would tell you about in my own words. First off all of the snow is gone from our yard! YEAH! I thought it would be here until June but the last little bit melted from our yard last week.
In February we met our dear and wonderful friends, The Paynes in St. George and had a FABULOUS weekend playing and catching up. I miss you guys dearly and Sean is still insisting we come up and see you so I guess we're going to have too!
On March 8 Fred's mother, Nancy, passed away unexpectedly. It has been a very trying time for our family as we deal with her loss, but Sean told me after I told him Grandma Nancy went to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus that- It's OK mom don't be sad, she will live again. My testimony has grown so strong from this statement that yes she will live again and our family will be with her again. I LOVE Fred and he gave such a moving tribute to his mom at her funeral. He needs all of your extra prayers right now.
I got my letter from NAU for this next fall and I'm on the alternate list for the Dental Hygiene program. So remember me in prayers that someone will decide to not go to NAU and decide to go somewhere else so I can get in. I think I've been down on myself lately for not getting into the program, but my wonderful, supportive husband told me I did everything that I could. He's right I busted my bum for 2 years getting A's and B's and I feel like the letter said, Your good but not good enough! Oh well! I hope to hear in July whether I get in...
Sarah turned 13 on May 1st, that's right people, Fred and I are the parents of a teenager! SCARY! Good thing she's a good kid and we love her and I'm pretty sure she loves us too!
Sophie is still playing soccer, but we're taking the summer off. I'm proud of all she has accomplished playing soccer.
Sydney is starting to get the "reading thing" she has struggled with it, but we are seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
Sean is 5 and is excited for Kindergarten next year. All of my kids will be in school! How sweet is that!
I'll update more, Fred is yelling for me to come and help change out ceiling fan lights.

I know, I know evrything lately has been snow, snow, snow. Well guess what that's all we got around here right now is snow! We had over 4 feet of snow fall on us last week. I was in my house from last Wednesday night until Sunday morning. I have cabin fever! My testimony has also grown in being prepared we knew and were told to prepare for power outages, having enough food and water, etc and I'm glad to say we had plenty. With that said I'm going somewhere warm for Spring break. I also haven't blogged in awhile. I'll find some time, but this semester I'm taking Microbiology, Computers, and a photography class...so watch out for better pictures!
