Back to School

The kids went back to school today. I'm sad it will be lonely without them, but Trace will take care of me. Gabe is starting all day kidergarten. McKell is in 2nd grade this year. She was way excited to go she woke up early and told me she watched the sunrise. "It was so beautiful she said." Thats cool since I've only seen a few sunrises myself.

So on Saturday we had a back to school party with my family, while the guys went Razor riding. This included my dad, Chris, Doug, and Troy. My mom, Tara, Savannah, me, and all the kids stayed home and played games, and made crafts. We had a lot of fun. We played parachute, made puppets, and decorated school supplies. The kids just enjoyed being with their cousins.

More summer fun!!!

Wow! It may seem like all we do is play this summer, but it is true we do!!!! Of course there is a lot of work to playing all the time, but the memories are soooooooo worth it. The house work and the laundry sure like to build up whemn you play. So in one week we went to Lagoon, Flaming Gorge and the Uintas. The kids say Lagoon was their favorite vacation ever, but I must be getting old because it kinda makes me dizzy. I had fun though. McKell and Gabe love the Wicked the best. How many 5 year olds say that. We went to Flaming Gorge with our friends the Brown's with there 2 month old twins. McKell and Gabe knee boreded for the first time. Chris waked borded for the first time he was so excited, and I stuck to good old skis. Trace had fun playing in the water. We spent this Tuesday playing in the Uintas with my parents and their Razor. What can I say we know how to play.
