    The rest of LABOR DAY weekend

    No Comments

    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.

    Saturday 9/2

    No Comments

    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.

    Ray found this grasshopper at the Hancock BYU breakfast and he loved it. The Grasshopper stayed on him for an hour. It must have been injured. Ray loved holding it and showing everyone:

    We took the kids on a “Date Night” with us. We visited Grandma Becker and then went to In and Out!! After Dinner we went to Nickel City and played all of the games! We had a blast. The kids all paired up and went around the arcade together.

    Kindergarten Ray

    No Comments

    Ray had to wait a week after the other kids to start school and it about killed him. He was so ready to go and be big. He is in Mrs. Larsons afternoon class and he is liking it so far. There are 3 other Kinders in our culdesac but he’s not in class with any of them. He knows one kid from church and has made a friend or 2 already. As far as I know he just climbs on the monkey bars all recess and isn’t too worried about having a friend out there. I have him walking home with all of the neighborhood kids and that has been great.

    We posed the whole way to school! He was ready for the adventure 🙂 He walks with Noah and Era. William and Hawkin are also there. Here he is on day #2!

    The Morning Crew: It’s fun having just the little kids home. We had a picnic and stayed in our PJs too long:

    First Week Back to School

    No Comments

    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!
