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.
Benji made it home from Scout Camp on Saturday morning and played with cousins and then in the afternoon we asked him to do some chores and he just CRASHED. He couldn’t comprehend and had a melt down. Ben helped him figure it out and tried to teach him that even when we are worn out and tired we still have to choose to do what we are asked and we choose our attitude 🙂 His buddy Seth stopped by in the middle of that life lesson with a late birthday present.
And that night Benji got to babysit while we went to the game! I love being at the field and I love when it is good weather
On Sunday we had our Nettesheim Fireside and then celebrated Grandpa’s 70th Birthday!!
THESE GUYS! ready for JR. HIGH? I love that they still play and have fun and don’t have to be too cool.
Ray and Rose are so excited to start school. They both have the same size shoe right now.
Friends over at the house on a summer day: Millie made a new friend when LaNell brought Andrew over to play.
my genius child?
working on their Dr. Mario skills and getting high scores:
I am still the Wolf Den Leader:
Kelsey and I took the kids to the pond. We stopped and got XL drinks at Maverick cause they were free so… And then Brady! showed up at the pond and surprised us!
Thursday Night I went to Ben’s soccer game! He is blurry in the pic cause he was running really fast 🙂 And right after the soccer game we picked LaNell up at the mouth of the canyon and drove to Sundance to watch Jacob and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. We met the Hancocks up there and sat through a little rain. It was a fun show!
And then the kids finished THE SUMMER CHART!! They were so happy to be done!
