Summer fun 2010

Can you say WOW summer is almost over. Well at least for kids. School starts in a week and a half and I can hardly believe it.

We have had one jammed packed summer. We started it off early with our trip to Alaska. What a truly wonderful and enjoyable trip that was! We had a fantastic time and it exceeded all our expectations. And I cannot believe that I forgot to post about it or post our pictures. What a terrible shame that is! We took a few weeks to recoup from that.

We have been busy hanging out in the back yard with the neighbors and the kids. It has been so much fun. For the fourth of July, what family I have left in Utah, came down to hang out at our place. We bbq-ed and then the whole complex got together and we let of fireworks. It was awesome!!!!

Scott started swim lessons the last week of July and into August. Man it takes up your entire morning. It is prime time client time and it has been a struggle. We also have had the round of dentist appointments, Dr appointments, and foot Dr appointments. It seems to be a never ending round. I know they are all necessary but again it cuts into client time and it has been hard getting all my client scheduled in.

On the 24th of July my Uncle Gene passed away from a four year battle with cancer. It was harder than I anticipated letting him go. We knew for weeks that it was imminent but none the less his passing has left me and still leaves me teary eyed. I have lost three Aunts and Uncles to cancer and one Uncle from a stroke and one Aunt and one Uncle from diabetes all in the past 10 years. I know it is one of those burdens when you have such an extended family and I gladly take it for all the memories I have of them growing up. I love and miss you all!

The up side to all that is that I got to spend two days catching up with the rest of my Aunts and Uncles and all my cousins. We now have two generations of cousins running around the place and I love it!! I enjoyed being in St. George again. What fun memories I have of living their.

School in a week and a half, wow, its been a busy summer! And I have enjoyed the wonderful thunder storms we had last week, plain and simple summer fun!

wow its been a while

Wow, I did not realize it had been so long since I posted to anything.

Sorry for that. Most of you have probably quit checking it by now.

Anyhow here is a quick update on the Churchill family. Star started working for Superior Lamp out of New Jersey. Great job, downside is it is straight commission and we are having to adjust to this type of pay. Not to mention that because of budget cuts companies are finding it difficult to pay a little more up front and not as much down the road. It is a green company and their products are superior. Star's health has taken a turn for the better thank heaven. It would seem that between Isagenix and taking out his gal bladder he is doing tons better. He still continues the battle with his Diabetes but Isagenix has helped a ton in that area as well. We struggle to pay for his insulin which runs us over $200 a month. We have several agencies that are helping us try to find a way to get the manufacturer to give it to us or at least at a huge discount. He takes Humilin R and the company that manufacturers it does not do patient assistance. Thus the help of the agencies.

I am currently, avidly, trying for more clients. I am starting a self walking ad campaign by dropping of flyer's to the neighborhoods where I live. It is glitter toe season and I am hoping to pick up tons more clients for that.

Scott stands nearly 4 1/2 feet tall, size 8 shoes, and over a 100 pounds. He continues to grow faster than I can keep up with. He saw the foot doctor a few weeks back and the orthodicts we bought a year ago that are supposed to last two years has only lasted one year. So we have to come up with another large sum of money to pay for those. Unless Chip picks up the bill which would be GREAT! Scott continues to be into everything or anything military related. Including Star Wars and Vikings. His best playmate lives two doors down and they are so alike in what they play that it is a hoot to listen to them. We do seem to have issues with Scott being rather emotional over things. This is a new one for me,he has always been sensitive but what he cries over really baffles me. I have heard that this is typical for 8 yr old's. I sometimes wonder if he has PMS. I would expect this from a girl not a boy. But then again he is my son and I have depression issues so we will keep an eye on it.

We have another wedding in the family taking place in June. My brother Jay is getting married again. This time in Arizona. I am not sure if we can afford to go. Although I would LOVE to see Audria!!!!! I miss you woman!!!

My parents are doing well and so are the rest of the family. TTFN.
