1st Grade!

Steven's been having fun pulling out teeth this summer and getting ready for 1st Grade!  He said he was nervous to start, but after a fathers blessing the night before, he was excited! He woke up early on the first day so his dad could help him pack his lunch, and he wanted to go early to school to play on the playground. I cried a lot after dropping him off on the first day, even more than Kindergarten.  (I blame pregnancy hormones.....)For some reason Kindergarten didn't phase me, but 1st grade is so real!  :) He absolutely loves school!  I made him stay home from school yesterday because he had been throwing up, and he got really mad at me for it.  Hopefully his enthusiasm sticks! :)

 He just made me take this picture because he got a new Sunday outfit. (For some reason he keeps getting taller)

In Summmmmmmmmer!

I can't believe the summer is over already!  It seems like we did a lot of playing outside, playing with friends, and seeing lots of family!

We enjoyed a fun trip to Wyoming with the Cropper's in June. We visited Devils Tower, Mount Rushmore, and spent lots of time playing with cousins!

We went to Richfield for the 4th of July and Steven ran in the Kids 1 Mile Race with his cousin, Justin.  He said it was hard, but he had a lot of fun!

Also in July, my cute nephew, Jeff headed for his mission to Santa Cruz, Bolivia.  My kids adore Jeff, and it will be fun to see him grow on his mission.  We even got a special surprise visit from Elder and Sister Rowley  who are currently serving in Ohio for Jeff's farewell weekend.  Lillie wouldn't let Grandma leave her sight the whole 3 days they were here!
