Travis got the job with Halliburton. He is leaving tonight (Sunday) for Rock Springs. He has about 5-6 weeks of training and then he will be working 2 weeks on and 1 week off. We are hoping that while he is training he will be able to come home on the weekends. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. He will be driving a truck on the oil field. My girlfriend that keeps the boys, her husband works there and he's putting in 100+ hours a week right now. Hope that will help us get caught up on everything we've managed to fall behind on! We just keep telling ourselves we can do it because we know it is for the short term and not for ever!

Travis took Samantha up to Beaver Mtn. today and gave her her first skiing lesson. I understand she did quite well. He said that by the end of the day they were playing follow the leader and she was the leader! She even went on the lift without any massive trauma! My children never cease to amaze me! I totally thought she'd wuss out!!

My sister, cousin & I are putting together a Relay for Life team in memory of our grandma. If you're a Maughan, email Melissa, Cass or I if you're interested in participating with us. Relay for Life will be held July 10th & 11th up on USU's Quad. I am really looking forward to this event.

I think that about covers all the "Big" news that has happened since my last blog. Well, I take that back. Nash's RSV is cleared up & he sounds really good. Caleb still has quite the rattle in his chest & I keep debating about whether or not to take him back into the dr. I think I keep putting it off b/c he's acting MUCH better and it doesn't seem to bother him too bad. Not to mention I'm terrified we'll end up back in the hospital!!

Have a great week!

Congrats on the job. I know it might not be fun, but hopefully it is worth it. I'm glad to hear the boys are doing better.

Good luck with the time apart. That is so hard. But, like you said, at least you know it won't be forever. I hope everything works out for you. Glad to hear the kids are getting healthy!
