At the end of March my Mr. C left us, and headed off to Utah to work for his company out there until mid October. What a big change it was to be a single parent for what would total four months, with little to no breaks. How full time single parents do it, I will never know and am humbled by their dedication.
Thankfully, at the tail end of March, having made a decent recovery from my Pneumonia, I was able to fly out to SLC for the weekend and spend it with Benjamin. We attended conference and it was a nice relaxing weekend of rest and time together.
While I was there I got to see our awesome old babysitter/my former seminary student/super cool all around girl, Kendall. She lives in Provo now, so we hopped on over for the day and spent it with her, before meeting up for a bit with my little sister, who had just returned from her LDS mission in California.
Kendall and I found Sweet Tooth Fairy , which I read about on various blogs all the time and had to buy some.
April passed pretty quickly, with much happening.
And then there was the ever popular trip to the zoo. I'm not really sure what prompted this particular trip, but if you've been a reader for any length of time, you know we're just crazy about the zoo.
April also brought a slew of school related activities. Both of the Biggies classes made items to sell at the schools silent auction, and I was able to win FP's lovely planter box that he made. I tried quite hard to win Sheepie's class quilt and was willing to out big anyone there except for the one person who did win it, lol (he wanted to give it to his wife who is dying of ALS. I couldn't bring myself to not let him have it, b/c I love their family so much). They also did a darling karate routine together for the talent show.
I was also to take another field trip with FP's class to learn about forests. I loved being able to go on all of the kid's field trips with them this year. It was neat to get so involved with their school this last year.
FP also got a hold of my camera and took a ton of pictures, here is one he grabbed of me.
April also had Easter, of course, but I will post about that in it's own post.
