We had Mia and Michelle over for Sunday dinner!
And Monday was brunch at mom and dads with lots of Nettys and Nate and Becky.
During the afternoon we hit the PG pool for the last time this season. A bunch of the cousins ended up going to the pool so it was a FUN day.
We all went to breakfast at the Hancocks to kick off the BYU football season!
Then I wanted to help Joel get his yard ready for hydro seed so I went and worked at his place.
Ben helped all of the kids do some chores and hang out:
Then when I got home the big kids went back to the Hancocks so I took the little kids to the park at the school for a little bit:
I am starting to cherish time as I watch my older kids get older and be gone more and need me less. Life is short and the time seems to fly by.
We visited Grandma Becker on her Birthday! we brought a crown and a cheesecake:
Benji reclaimed his High Score on Mario Bros.!
The Morning Crew: It’s fun having just the little kids home. We had a picnic and stayed in our PJs too long:
Rose and Cali always pick out their clothes the night before. Rose is loving this fun SuperGirl outfit 🙂
Our raspberries are sooo good this year!
One more trip to the pond! With the Hancocks!
Babysitting Quincy. Tiago showing off and being a goof ball:
The playground at Cali’s soccer practice – Mondays and Wednesdays late afternoon.
Now that Rose is in School all day – these 2 are missing their together time:
Benji reading to Tiago – he loves books right now:
Hanging with the Hancocks again:
Millie making a new friend at Cali’s soccer game:
First thing – Ben got Donkey Kong Jr. Working!
A couple of trips to Walmart to get binders and pencils and anything else I forgot:
Tuesday Night was the Bike Rodeo for Pack Meeting:
And later that evening I went to watch “The Glass Castle” with Kelsey:
Ray is my morning Buddy, this stinking gold fish won’t die, and Tiago has been exhausted:
The Contractor started on our basement and I didn’t have it cleared out so I worked ALL WEEK clearing the basement! Tons of baby clothes, Kelsey’s stuff, things that haven’t been touched since we moved into this house:
Wednesday night we want to an RSL game and LaNell came. Cali went to the Orthodontist again:
Megan came over to help me get ready for the Yard Sale! I worked in the basement a ton and the kids were just chillin’ most of the week. No home work and no electronics!
We took Michelle out for her Birthday! Ben bruised his foot during his game and has been limping ever since:
Shannon came Friday night and helped us prep for Yard Sale and then we spent our Saturday in the front yard trying to sell all of our old stuff:
We snuck away at 4:00 for Cali’s first Soccer game on the United team. She played really well! They played Anna’s team. Got beat but had fun in the 100 degree weather.
And then we ran off to another RSL game that night!
Sunday bath and hanging out with Joel and Megan on a Sunday evening:
The week flew by. I am excited for this week and our new routine and the basement!
