On the way home from the lake with Uncle Adam and Aunt Heidi, Luke told them all about how it is at home. He told he couldn't have any media until his work was done. He reported that his mom doesn't do anything, she makes the kids do everything. All they do is work, work, work.... funny how reality and perception can be so different.  How I wish his perception was reality!


Doug and I went on a weekend anniversary trip. Ethan was dismayed to learn we were leaving. Through his almost tears he cried out, 'why can't you just go out to dinner!'

Kindergarten Kite Day


NB 1st Ward Camping Trip

We camped at Canyon Lake with our new ward. Cute Preston invited our new neighbor Chase to join us. We helped with a service project and met some new friends.

Landa Park Dolphin Swim Team

There are volleyball courts near the pool. Sometimes the boys play in the sand while we wait for the big kids to swim.
Sometimes the boys play in the park while we wait for Sophie to finish practice.

We miss the 🐸 Frog Swim team, but have tried to have a good attitude and embrace our new team. The kids are getting really good coaching and are learning so much. They have all improved their swimming a lot.
