a reality series?

So, the weirdest thing happened. We have talked to someone a few times who thinks we would be a good family for a reality TV show. we thought that was so funny. i am not sure what would go on but the producer called last night and talked to John for about an hour. They are talking it over and trying to come up with a premise for the show. Isn't that hilarious? Can you even imagine? This process has raised a few questions for our family.
*sounds exciting...but is it worth it?
*would it benefit or be harmful?
*do we want everyone to know what goes on in our life?
*seriously, who would be interested in watching our family?
*how much of an embarrassment would I become?
*what would the limitations be?
any way, it probably won't go beyond a few phone calls. We are just not that exciting. We don't have any cool talents or anything. We just are what we are!
Beyond that excitement, I am on my way to Michigan for a few days to visit my family and because a friend of mine passed away this week. At only 46 yrs.old it seems a little unreal that she could be gone so young.
I am still plugging away at school. UGH! sometimes, it gets intense and I feel like I am never going to be done. I know I will be someday and I am grateful to be finishing. I am looking forward to working. Crazy, i know. After 19 years at home I am excited to do something a little bit different. Although, teaching school isn't exactly out of my comfort zone :)
I still have some time though. Katie should at least be in 1 st grade before I start anything like that. then, I might decide, I want to stay at home by myself for a little while. Who knows? I will just be excited to finally have my degree. It will certainly be a relief and an accomplishment. i have been going to college on and off for 19 years and I will be thrilled to finish this.
Well, I have been subbing for 2 days in Zach's 3rd grade class and I have been having a ball! What a fun class. I love it! Thankfully though the subbing is winding down a little and I look forward to the summer off.
Well....that is pretty much all for now. Kodey is going to graduate next month and another chapter of her life will begin. I will let you know if they call back. they said they would, hmm, I won't loose any sleep over that. Still makes me chuckle though. A TV show? who does that happen to? HAHAHAHA

Running around in circles...

I have been so busy and bad about posting and taking pictures. i keep promising myself I will get caught up but then something else comes up. i admire all of you that can keep your blogs so nice all the time.
Since the last time I posted..Zach had a birthday, Lydia had a birthday and was baptized, Katie had a birthday, John had a birthday (40 yrs).
Wrestling season ended for everyone. I am almost done with 4 more classes. Jonathan broke his brand new glasses, Aleceeya and Gallie joined the glasses crew, I got TRIFOCALS!
I have been subbing like crazy! The van had to get new tires, and a new air conditioner and windshield.
The trailer needed a new refrigerator. John's car needed new tires.
I have been elected for PTA vice president and accepted a spot in the Utah Foster and adoptive families association for their 2nd VP and am now trying to create a statewide mentoring program.
We had a beautiful Patriotic program at my kids school that I ran the lights for and twisted my knee at (it was swollen for about 1 1/2 weeks)
Josh earned his varsity letter in wrestling and now has a beautiful coat to wear it on, they get more and more expensive!!
My three teens each got a cell phone with unlimited texting and lets just say, in one month their combined texts were over 6000!!!
they have also each lost their phone privileges over the last month for breaking some rules.
Kodey passed her math class with a C and now only needs a 1/4 credit in US History to pass so that she can graduate in May. the final is next week!!
Spring Break is upon us and it has hailed, snowed and the wind has blown so hard...but today it is beautiful weather and should be for the rest of the week.
Easter came and went quickly with a beautiful General Conference session.
i decided to write a book about my grandparents and family history and have been working on it.
katie has to have surgery tomorrow.
I earned my On My Honor award from the scouting program
Sheesh...I think that is about all. i am sure there is more but that is just a few highlights of our last few weeks.
