The end of the summer.....

This is kind of a random picture but I kept wanting to blog it so here's my excuse. Logan, Mason, and Noah went to a primary Pioneer Day activity a month ago and had a great time pretending to be pioneers. They went on a long "trek" from the park over to the church building, played some pioneer games, learned about some of the trials the pioneers went through, and even made butter! At the end of the activity all the kids got a packet with some snacks to use to make a "pioneer wagon". Logan's was the only one to make it home before it got eaten. He followed all the directions and got it done really quick. It turned out perfect!!

The first day of school!!

On Tuesday Aug. 19th the boys started back to school. They were sooooo excited! Logan began 3rd grade in Mrs. Baker's class. So far he's enjoying being a big 3rd grader. He'll be starting piano lessons soon from our neighbor, we're excited for him.

Mason is now a big 1st grader! He gets to go to school all day with Logan and eat lunch in the cafeteria with all the big kids. He's been so excited to have recess with Logan but this year the 3rd and 1st graders don't have recess together, DARN! He is in Mrs. Cern's class with some of his friends from the ward. He's beginning soccer this week and his Sunday school teacher will be his coach!! We had to pull a lot of strings to get him on that team. He'll be with all the other boys his age in the ward. We're soooo excited for him!

Noah starts preschool again with Ms. Danai on Monday. Most of the kids from his class last year are there again, with just a few new ones. He's so much more comfortable this year. Last year he had a hard time leaving me for the first few months of school. Now he's dying to go back. We're looking forward to a fun year for him this year!
Roman isn't starting anything this fall. But he will get to enjoy some one on one time with Mom while his brothers are at school. Hopefully this will help ease the pain of getting kicked off his throne when the baby comes in December. We'll get him involved in something in the spring to help him too. He's actually doing pretty good potty training lately. I just hope he doesn't regress when the baby comes....
