Maggie's broken arm

Maggie broke her arm the 2nd day of school.  She fell on the black top running to give me  a surprise hug.  She gets it off on the 23rd of this month. She's not counting down at all.  She got a pink cast and it is waterproof.  Good thing too,  because she could go swimming.  I also didn't have to worry about the plastic bag bit!  


School

My kids are growing up so fast.  I couldn't decided who was more nervous about going to school. I think in the end, I decided it was me.   I was dreading homework, the routine of getting them to bed and not to mention getting them up in the morning. (Which Josh does not get up easy)

  I had a hard time letting josh go the 1st day,maybe because he is my baby and would be gone all day.
They love school and have met many friends. Before I know it is time to pick them up.  I thought I would be bored..  That hasn't been the case.




2013 garden




Despite our vines bended in half from a wind storm,  we had quite a good crop of snap peas! Our garden this year was interesting one, we couldn't get the squash, zucchini, or pumpkins to grow.  I was able to get some raspberries, and  1 small tomato.  The birds got to the raspberries before we could taste them.  

Looking back on my 1st garden I wish that we hadn't had such great success.  I know that sounds funny.19 pumpkins now none. I think it is our soil here. 
Hopefully next year!

I have been flipping through family pictures and I came across this picture of my cousin  and I think he looks a lot like Josh.  Funny thing is Josh has the same shirt and wears it everywhere!




Father and Sons

My dad's ward has a Father and Sons camp out.  Josh went this year with Dave.  He had a blast! He  rode a mechanical bull, rode a horse,  had a race with Popsicles sticks.  What a fun time he had!

Maggie and I had some girl time!  WE played lots of games, ate junk food, put on make-up,  watched a lot of Power Ranges RPM.   We had a fun time.
