First Day of School

Yesterday was the first day of school. The girls were ready! They had all the supplies and were set. I think that I was the only one that was nervous.

Hannah has started middle school!!! Ready or not... here it is! She is thrilled. She thinks she is so big. She forgets that she will forever be my little 3 lb. baby. It was a great first day... she made a friend with a girl that is new as well and they have all of thier classes together on the "red" days. Yay!!! I am so glad. She cannot wait to join all of the clubs she can.

Whitney and Mia started the Third and First grades, respectively. They were equally excited and they had really good days too. All third graders and up get lockers... so Whitney felt relaly special. Mia had a good time and said the it was "EASY"!

Now Jackson and I are going to have to get hobbies!!! What will we do without the girls?

Summer fun!

We had so much fun during our trip to Idaho... here are a few more photos to share.

Here we are enjoying the Lava pool with Phil, Alli, and Leigh. Whitney and Hannah both went off the platforms!
Cousin's camp with the Woodland side is always a highlight for the year. They get
to spend time with the many cousins that they rarely see as well as riding horses, camping out and an evening talent show.
After Cousin's Camp we drove to Boise to visit Grandpa Craig and we barbecued, and did a lot of playing around. We already miss everyone like crazy! We cannot wait to see you all again!

What a Month!

We are so happy to be connected to the modern world! It has been a hard week and a half! NO internet and no TV. It was very trying... for all of us. It is one thing to move to a new town it is an entire other thing to move to a new town you know nothing about and have nothing to do at home either!! Lots of fun stories to follow... but I just wanted to add a few photos from July. We were able to spend lots of time with family. We miss them like crazy already!
The first stop was to visit Maggie and her wonderful family. I was able to celebrate my shared birthday with my neice Abby... Maggie made a beautiful cake. Hannah spent her week at BYU Gymnastic camp.

Lagoon was our next stop. We had such a great time with Grandpa Craig and Shauna, Phil, Alli, Leigh and Derek, Mag and Fam, plus all of us.

We then left to visit Grandma Nina, Leigh and Allison! We had so much fun!

More update to come... but I must go get some other things accomplished today!
