Kinda Lonely Around Here...

It's kind of lonely around here now that Andrew, Brody and Abby are in school. My little Breezy goes to preschool next week. Then it will just be me and Alyssa. What then??? Today Breezy, Alyssa and I went to a park. Here are some pics I took with my phone.

Those Shoes Look Like Boy Shoes!!!

Abby did it! -She survived her first day of Kindergarten. She reported that the day went well. She really likes her teacher and she made a couple of new friends. The only complaint Abby had was that one of the girls in her class told her her canvas shoes looked like boy shoes. I doubt I'll be able to get her to wear them again. -Kids can be so mean.

Owls Game/Fireworks show

We went to the Owls game/fireworks show on Saturday. Owls beat Helena 5-1. Both Andrew and my nephew Jared were able to get foul balls. The firework show was great, especially since it is the end of August. :)

Mutual Dell Day Camp

Andrew and Aaron went to a scout day camp on Saturday. The camp was held up at Mutual Dell in AF canyon. They learned a lot of new things. Pictures to come...

Abby Kindergarten Assessment

Abby had her Kindergarten assessment Thursday. I've never seen anyone as anxious to start school as her. I think she'll have a blast this year. Isn't she adorable?

A New School Year Is Upon Us...

Yesterday was "The final day of Summer" as Andrew put it.To celebrate, we took the kids to Manilla Pond. We had a picnic and swam. -Such a beautiful day.
Later in the afternoon, I took the kids to meet their new teachers. Abby's Kindergarten teacher is Mrs. Walker. Andrew and I had Mrs. Walker for Kindergarten. She's such a neat lady. -So glad that Abby gets to have her.
Brody's 2nd grade teacher is Mrs. Anderson. Brody had her for about a month last year. I'm glad he gets to have her again. She's a very patient and kind person. I'm hopeful that we will see a lot of change in Brody this year.
Andrew's 5th grade teacher is Mrs. Kakahiko. I don't know much about her, except that this will be her 2nd year at Shelley. Andrew's very excited and nervous. It's a new school, a new teacher, and new classmates. -I'm sure that he'll be just fine.
Bree felt left out since she didn't get to go visit her teacher and classroom. We signed her up in my Aunt Denice's preschool. She begins some time after Labor Day.
All of were starving after meeting the teachers. I took the kiddos to Parkers for icecream cones and fries. Alyssa loves Parkers fry sauce. She drank three of the little cups. -So cute.

Aaron gave all of the kids a blessing before going to bed. So grateful for the church, for a wonderful husband and children. I am truly blessed. :)

Butterfield Canyon

We went for a nice ride Sunday evening. We drove through Butterfield Canyon near Kennecot Copper Mine and ended up in Tooele. We saw a ton of deer. This little guy was next to the road with his mother. I love the spots.
