We took what will probably be our last swim of the summer on Saturday. It was a bit cloudy which made for a chilly swim but the kids had a blast. The older ones weren't ready to go home but Abby had had enough and was ready for a nap. Good bye pool we will see you again next year!

Abby saw an opportunity for some ketchup grabbage while we were all distracted, on with the main event! Two days into school and Jessie turned 5. She is the youngest kid in her class but also one of the smartest. Now if she can learn to not talk when the teacher is talking she will be golden! I picked her up from school and we went out to lunch and then we all went to Red Robin for dinner that night. Even uncle Glenn joined us for some celebrating at dinner.
That Saturday we had her Hello Kitty party. Wow 15 kids for two hours and my head was spinning! We had ears and wiskers for all the kitties. We decorated gift bags played some games and then it was time for cake and presents.
A few words on my 5 year old. Jessie is the peace maker of the family. She will do what she can to cheer up and help out. She does her fair share of naughty things and gives you a big old pouty face if she gets caught. Jessie loves to learn, when she brought homework home for the first time she asked me if she could do it in the car on thne way home. Jessie rides her bike to school every morning and participates in Hula with Cassie on Monday afternoons. She can count to 35 and writes her name with out help. Happy Birthday Jessie Girl! We love you so much!!

When mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday I told her all I wanted was for her and Dad to come up for the weekend. She told me they had plans and couldnt make it. But when I opened my door on Wednesday night, two day before my birthday, there she was with Erin! What a fun surprise and definately the best birthday ever! We ate out A LOT and shopped all day on Thursday. Friday morning we went out for one last meal and then they were on their way back home. It was such a quick trip but we squeezed in a lot of fun times. We kept trying to get a good photo at the mall that twenty pictures in we were laughing so hard it was hopeless. Thanks Mom and Erin for working so hard to put all this together. Oh and thanks Satcey and Leslie for watching the munchkins so it was all possible. I could have had a better way to usher in my last year as a 20 something.

The girls started back to school in style this year. Cassie was raring to go and so excited to be at school all day this year. She bought a new green lunch sack and came home the first day proudly reporting that they had THREE reccess' that day. Jessie started back a few days later. We were running just a bit behind that morning so I asked her to get her shoes ond socks and have dad help her get them on. She made quite the first impression in class that day. Go Jess!

Our annual trip to Idaho was a bit different then normal but made for a super fun weekend! We stayed in the "circle hotel" at the very top where we could see the whole town! We got to bed very late Friday night so the kids were a bit crabby Saturday morning but they snapped right out of it when we got to Pres. Walkers house. As soon as we pulled up Ryan hopped out of the car and said "SEE YA!" then he was out of there. We saw the kids very little that day until it was time to pack up and head out.
