Bree's First Day Of Kindergarten

Well it's official.   My little Breelyn is now in Kindergarten!  (Sniff sniff)
Bree was so excited and anxious to go. 
 Yesterday we went to her Kindergarten open house.  Mrs. Walker gave her her first homework assignment.  She had to fill out a poster about herself.  Bree worked really hard on it.
 This year, we get to watch my niece Sasha on Tuesdays.  She and Alyssa are BFF's.  Aren't they the cutest little girls?
 Breelyn is in Mrs. Walkers pm kindergarten class (11:25-2:15).  We're so glad she's her teacher.
 When we arrived at the school, there was "Rocky" music playing.  All of the students got medals.  The principal told the students that she believes all the students will be "Champions of Learning."
 I have to be honest.  -It made me tear up a bit.  :)

Argyle Reunion

Yesterday we had our annual "Argyle Reunion."  My mom and her sisters did a great job planning it.  I think we had a pretty good turn out.  Here are the families that attended as far as I can remember.
Grandma Argyle
Aunt Judy
Aunt Denise
Uncle Ron
Aunt Marla
My Mom (Sherrie)
Aunt Diane

We had the reunion at the splash park in Alpine.  We ate dinner then we took the kids to the splash pad and play ground.  Here are a couple of pictures that I snapped throughout the evening.
Breezy climbing the ropes.
Getting sick on the twirly thingy.  :)

Alyssa getting soaked.
Andrew poured a glass of water over Abby and she wasn't too happy about it.
Brody really liked the park.

Bree had fun with Aime's daughter Tenley and Clint's daughter Aunie.
Bryson got spoiled by his grandparents.
...Such a happy boy!
Kinley (Melinda's daughter) and Andrew had a water fight.
It was a beautiful evening.

Sherrie's Birthday

Friday evening we went to dinner for my mom's birthday.
 My mom chose to go to Tucanos.  Mmm mm mm!  It was so yummy.
 It was Aaron and Bryson's first time there.
We had them sing "Happy Birthday" to her.  -It was so much fun.  Glad we were able to go with.  Thank you Kent and LouJean for watching our kids.

Things That Make You Go Ewe!

My poor little Andrew has been injuring himself a lot lately.  A couple weeks ago, he got his big toe slammed in the door.
 Now you see it...
 No you don't.  :)
Andrew fell while he was rollerblading and really bruised up his knee.  Doesn't that bruise look terrible?  Ouch!

Bree And Her Chickens

I don't think I've ever met a child that is as "Free-spirited" as my Breelyn.
That girl has no fear when it comes to her chickens.  I think most kids (Or at least my other kids) worry about being pecked, clawed, or pooped on.  Not my Bree.  She catches them all the time.
She tells me she's their mama.
The white one is her favorite.  A while back, we thought she broke it's leg.  She took it down our slide with her little friend Hunter.  It didn't walk for about a week.

Sheesh.  The black one is about half her size.  Aren't they ugly creatures?  I think they look like dinosaurs with feathers.  Seriously...Have you ever looked at their feet?
I guess Bree gets her bravery from her dad.  :)
Speaking of bravery, Alyssa taught herself how to ride a scooter.

Andrew and Abby (Not pictured) have learned how to roller blade.
Bryson and Brody (Not pictured) just have to look cute.  :)

Back To School Night For Brody

Last night I took Brody to meet his 3rd grade teacher.  Couple of problems though.  Apparently Brody's new teacher just got married and won't be teaching for a couple of weeks.  He'll have a substitute during that time.  I'm bothered because the whole transition from summer back to school is difficult for Brody.  It's going to be even more difficult having him be introduced to 2 different teachers.  Autistic children do so much better when things are consistent!  I wonder how the other mothers feel?
 I still wanted Brody to see where his classroom was.  Mrs. Ahrens was written on the board and Mrs. Drzayich was posted on the wall.  -Not sure which is his teacher, which is the substitute, if it's the same person but married, or maybe one of them is an aid!  I honestly don't know.  -So frustrated.

Back To School Night For Abby

My little Abby is going to be in first grade this year.  On Friday we met her teacher Mrs. Lyons.  Abby is super excited!

15 Years

So... I'm feeling a little guilty today.  My 15 year high school reunion was yesterday.  I missed it.  My husband's secretary got married and her reception was at the same time.  We felt like we should be there, so I guess that's my excuse.
  As I was looking at the American Fork Class of 97 facebook page, I found this picture of Aaron and I at my 10 year reunion.  Can't believe that 5 years has gone by since then.  Sheesh.

Clear Creek

Andrew returned from Clear Creek on Friday.  He had such a good time.  He got to go with his good friend Abe.  They came home with all sorts of crafts.  He even earned a few merit badges for scouts!  You can find him on the left side of the top row. 

Jessie's 7th Birthday

Abby went to her cousin's birthday party yesterday.  The party was a princess/prince party.

Aren't these invitiations adorable?  My sister in law is so talented.
Towards the end of the party, they did a slip and slide.  Abby thought that was the best thing ever.  Happy Birthday Jessica!

She's Back!

My niece Brittany came home from her mission yesterday.   For those of you who don't follow my blog, she served in the Lima, Peru mission.  We're so happy to have her back! 
The girls made her these posters. 

...Waiting for her plane to arrive.
