Favorite Toy

Our favorite toy right now is definitely Lego's.

Ian's Blue Cast

It's been 2 weeks since he broke his arm. I took him to the doctor to have his cast removed and his arm xrayed. We came home with a new cast for 2 more weeks. His arm is healing well but is not done yet.

Nothing a little D.P. can't fix

I don't know if it is stress or getting old or moving for the bagiliunth time but I've got aches in my bones and I've had a migraine off and on for 2 weeks. Nothing a little Ibuprofen and Dr. Pepper can't fix. Thank goodness for caffeine in times like this.

Hogle Zoo and a baby squirrel

 We made a trip to the Hogle Zoo with cousins.
Not the best picture I couldn't get everyone to stand still together.

 I took a picture (at his request) of Logan and my favorite gorilla statue.

 Then he snapped one of me.

 They had these cool life size spiders and bugs all around the zoo.

 My brother picked up an abandened baby squirrel at a park.
They have been caring for it.
Kind of cool.

 The squirrel came to the zoo so they could feed it.
She eats every three hours.
Ian was rather taken with it.
That is his wife Alicia in the pic.

Caleb's First Day of Kindergarten

 Logan being the amazing big brother he always is held Caleb's hand while they climbed into the bus together.
Addison and Logan walked him to his classroom.
Marissa would have but she was at the school high fiving the Kindergartners since they started on a later day then the rest of the school.
I didn't even go over to the school to make sure he made it to class okay because I knew he was in the best loving hands of his big brother and big sister.

His teacher sent me this picture from the first day.
Caleb has the blue shirt on.
I think he had a good day.

The First Day of School!

 Addison Fourth Grade

 Logan Second Grade

 Marissa Sixth Grade

 One of the neighborhood Mom's had a Back to School Breakfast for all the neighborhood kids at her house. My kids were so excited to go!

 Marissa and her good friend Libby.

 Part of the group that showed up for the breakfast.

 Logan loading on the bus (red shorts).

 Marissa had to head over to the school early because she is on The Student Council.
They line up and high five all the students as they head into the school.

The Day Before School Starts

 We had a few things we hadn't gotten to during the summer. The first one was to Clean the Sink at Angie's. You are probably wondering what that is. Well! If you go to the local diner Angie's here in town you can order a sink full of ice cream, banana's, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and sprinkles. If you "clean the sink" or eat the entire pound of ice cream and all the fixn's then you get a cool bumper sticker that says "I cleaned the sink at Angie's."

 We tried.

 Really hard.

 To eat all that ice cream but we failed.
Next time!

 Next up roller skating at The Fun Park.
Even with a broken arm.

And finally the Cars 3 movie.
It was a super fun day!
A last big bang before school started the next day.
