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!
First Day of School 2017
These kids are growing up! !st, 3rd, 5th, 7th!
I love that these guys are best friends!
Benji saying goodbye as he catches carpool to Jr High and Rose saying hello to the big 1st grade all day school!
Cousins! This is the morning crew – the rest of the neighbors are on B track this year.
Tired out kiddos:
Millie having her own pool party:
Ben took the Teachers Quorum hiking:
Benji and I went to the school to figure out schedule and lockers. Alessandro was there to show him around! Benji seems confident and ready:
We’ve been watching a lot of Disney channel Liv and Maddie around here.
We finally taught Benji how to mow the lawn! he hated it.
and my favorite thing about this week… I finally replaced our broken fridge in the garage. I was so sick of going to buy milk EVERY other day! I went and bought 5 gallons that day. And we could finally freeze our otter pops!
On Wednesday night Ben and Benji went swimming at the Provo Rec Center for dad night!
And the morning I went in and turned Benji’s light on at 11am cause he was still sleeping!
And then my favorite flip flops broke – not just fav but worn EVERY day for 2-3 years. So sad… I will need a new pair.
And on Friday Night Ben and I went to Lucy’s Brazillian Kitchen – did not dissapoint – and then we went next door to the Velour and listened to My Man Friday and danced the night away!
A little Old School Wisconsin Reunion:
And Ben makes THE BEST Sunday DINNERS!
The summer went WAY TOO FAST THIS YEAR – (booo)
While the boys are away… the girls shopped, watched and played!
We went shopping for back to school clothes. Cali had a stomach ache so we only went to Target. We came home and ate junk and watched Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2 and played with Kelsey and had fun. The next morning we watched some more Camp Rock and then finished shopping. These girls are getting pretty fun! But those baby bottle dip things were one of the worst purchases of my life – except the girls loved them!
On Sunday August 13th we said goodbye to Carter! He’s going to serve a mission for 2 years! He left on Wednesday for the MTC. Then he will go to Lithuania! Benji spent the evening by his side soaking him in 🙂 He seems like he’s ready to go and serve.
Millie spent the night wrapping Sydney and the Webb cousins around her finger.
