April happenings

Some of the excitement we've had this month:

Brandon was inducted into National Junior Beta Club.
 It is similar to Honor Society
Brandon calls it the club for smart people.
 Way to go, smarty pants!

He's not the only smart kid at his school.
Beta club is new this year, so they had to induct
all the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.
Looks like girls are doing better than boys in middle school these days.

 Nice photo bomb, B.

General Conference
One of my favorite weekends of the year!
The kids did an AMAZING job of listening this year.
It was incredible.
I think they sat there listening and taking notes for 6 of the 8 hours.

I was especially impressed with Caroline's notes this time:

The Young Women's basketball team finished off their season.
 They lost in the tournament, but gave it a good run.

 Andrew and the ballers.
 Group hug!

We celebrated Shelly's 40th birthday!
 She was thrilled to enter the new aDOLEscence. :)

 Yummy cupcakes!

 Trying to figure out how to work those shakers.
(Man, I look like a GIANT next to Shelly!)

Party girls

FREE Panda Express???
Yes, please!

They came out with a new dish and offered it free--
one per customer one day this month.
 It was surf and turf, so I donated mine to Andrew.

He, B, and W LOVED it.
 A random video clip

Caroline knows how to hula hoop!
Since I can't do this, I was blown away. :)
