Sunday's...

Sunday's are my favorite day of the whole week. Especially Sunday's in September, when the air is warm but not hot and the leaves are starting to turn. We made a batch of lemon and peanut bars, the boys are playing soccer in the yard and the girls are collecting leaves. Doesn't get much better than this. Heavenly Father knew what he was doing when he made a day of rest.

Sombreros...

We got some sombreros today at a yard sale. My dad owned a couple of these when we were kids. We played with them often. It brought back good memories of seeing these laying around my house as a child. I don't remember everything we owned but for some funny reason, the sombreros will always stand out...

Zoo...

Scarlett has the best teacher ever. All of our children have been blessed to have her as a kindergarten teacher. The class visits the zoo twice a year...and takes other field trips every Wednesday through sept. and part of oct. Chris took the day off from work last week and we both accompanied our sweet girl to the zoo. I can't believe my sweet girl is growing up so fast.

Cubscouts...

Cubscouts has begun once again. My best friend Tammy got called to lead these four little guys with me....and I am super excited. I could tell at our first mtg that the boys would love Tammy. (Everyone loves Tammy, so I wasn't surprised) and I'm most of all so happy to be in with Christian his last year of cubscouts. Gosh, I love that sweet smile of his.

Scarlett and dad...

Scarlett drew this picture tonight of herself and her dad. It truly touched my heart. It made me grateful that she is still young. Still so honest with her affections. 

Chris said "It's kinda disturbing to me that my kids draw me looking like Noah." But deep down I could see how much it touched his heart too...

Letters and the chickens...

Sometimes our little letty goes missing. I search everywhere yelling "letters...where are you???" (Letters is our favorite nickname for Scarlett.) almost always I find her out by the chicken coop feeding the chickens and having her own little discussion with them. It's positively adorable on every level.

Cross country...

So proud of our sweet halee. She's been doing cross country the last month. She has worked her little tail off to be prepared to run. Just yesterday I ran with her for the first time in several weeks, and it was like running with a different girl. No complaining, hardly any resting, and she ran strong. We love you halee. You're doing fantastic.
