I cannot believe I haven't written anything since early June!!! Just a quick update. Hoping to do better on keeping the blog updated :)

JUNE: In June Ava started dance in Orem. She has loved it! It was a 6 week class over summer but we signed up again for fall/winter! Ava and I went to the Princess Festival in June and had lots of fun. I was sick for almost the entire month, the biggest issue was I was having horrible headaches again. Went to visit my doctors and I got glasses in June :) Such a change and I didn't realize I couldn't see clearly anymore! My mom came to visit the last weekend of June for my birthday. Dan and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary with a night away in Provo, it was a lot of fun!

JULY: In July we went to the Provo balloon festival! Ava had her dance performances, so cute!  Dan and I decided to get rid of our mini van and got a Hyundai Sonata 2013 hybrid! We love this car! Its amazing! At the end of July Ava started swim lessons, not through the city but through a "survival swim" type private lesson. At first I wasn't sure if we were going to stick with it but Ava has learned to swim (mostly float) but its been amazing for her! we did it all through August and through part of September too.

August: We got to meet Avas teacher Miss Linda at her new school. We enjoyed the end of summer. I was a touch anxious for the new school year to start but she has done amazing and absolutely loves it!

September: Dan turned 28. We celebrated his birthday. Ava started Dance again and finished up with swim. Ava got glasses!! She looks so so cute in them. In March it was suggested that she may need glasses but I thought they were wrong... nope they were right. She loves wearing her glasses too. I also decided to close Brittybird indefinitely in September. Making a focus shift to our little family.

October: We went to visit my family in Arizona for 10ish days! The trip was fun and hard at the same time. Its been so long since we had been down to Arizona. Its not easy for us to get down there, I wish it were thou. I enjoyed seeing my family and visiting my best friend Amanda.  As soon as we got back from our trip we decided to sell Dan's truck and turn into a 1 car family. That has been a struggle, hopefully it gets easier once Avas school bus driver calls and gets her set up on the bus! We have had a fun time celebrating fall and Halloween. Ava is so excited to be Elsa for Halloween :)
