Traditions Live On

You would have had to grow up at my house to understand the significance of these pictures....but traditions definately do live on. There's nothing like a summer night wiffle ball game in the backyard!

And - of course - you have to lay your clothes out before your first day of school. It's a must.

Isaac's First Day of Preschool!

I am so excited and happy about Isaac's first day of preschool! He is so ready and excited to go....and truth be told....he needs more social interaction than I can provide him. So - he's going to a preschool at a member's house in another ward. There are 6 boys in the class.

He wasn't even really nervous the first day. He was just excited! I was so proud of him! It will be so good for him to go to school and it's fun for me to have some alone time with Sam while he's gone.
Here are some of the projects he did on his 1st day.

Does Anyone Still Care?

I never post to my blog I don't know if anyone still checks it anymore. Should I still keep posting????

Grand Canyon

Back in April we had our first house guests to our home in Arizona!!! Jes' mom and sister's family came to visit us. We went to the Grand Canyon while they were here. It was fun....but also a little scary. We had 5 adults and 5 children under age 5. There are a lot of spots where there is no fence or railing on the edge. It's a little scary to think about a kid falling over the edge. Little did I know that the one I had to worry about was my oldest child....Jes!

Sunny California

Over Memorial Day Weekend we decided to go visit Jes' sister in California and go to Sea World. We had such a great time there!!! But I kept forgetting my camera, so the only pictures we got were at Sea World. We also went to the beach and had so much fun! The rest of the trip got cut short because Isaac got sick. Here's the recap of the trip to Sea World.
