Just For Fun

Just a few random pics from this month.  The girls checking out the motorcycle at Marleys.
 Nick riding motorcycles with sterling and looked so cool in the helmet.

 Olivia discovered the little baskets at Smiths and begs to go to this Smiths everytime we go shopping.  She loves to be my helper!
 And, I just have no words for this!

New Trees and Education

 The first day of school we got our trees for the yard.  We have been anxious to see the yard finished.  Nate has worked so hard figuring out the plans for the yard and researched what plants and trees will work best.  Now hopefully we can keep them all alive through the winter. 

 Charlotte and I also got to spend the week at Education week down at BYU.  It was kind of hard with it being the first week of school, but Nate helped out with the kids and it was so good for me to go learn.  I learned some great things about parenting, and scripture study and felt a spiritual boost that I needed.  We also snuck in some yummy food while we were out.  I am lucky to have such great sisters and hopefully next year more will come with us. 

2nd, 3rd, and 5th

 First day of school for these 3.  Mckay started 3rd grade,
 Olivia couldn't resist getting in on the action too  She is starting preschool in a few weeks and is super excited. 
Nick is starting 5th grade.
Natalie is starting 2nd Grade.

 The school had a big welcoming party for the kids.  They have a new mascot named Hank the Hawk.  They had all the teachers out welcoming the kids with balloons and a banner.

Sparta Cup

 We made it home just in time to play the last day of the Sparta Cup.  Nick's team took 2nd place again, and Mckay's team didn't do to well.  It was a good experience for them to play together and look forward to a better season.

Crystal Cove

 We could spend day after day hanging out at Crystal Cove.  We love this beach. They were setting up for a party this day and we happened to have a volley ball.  We played some sand volley ball!  Fun!
