September Wrap Up

Couldn't resist painting these baby piggies.
 Soccer games started up and so did our triple header Saturdays. Fun to have cousin, Graham, on Rylan's team this year.

Trevor installed a new back splash in the laundry room after our new washer and dryer wouldn't fit!  It was a domino effect that resulted in a mini remodel of that room, but the new washer and dryer are awesome!

Activity Day camp! 

And I was fortunate enough to be there for my niece's birth! Little Meg is such a sweet bundle of joy and my sister, Charise, was amazing!  Babies are such miracles!!

Miles, at age 4, became a pro on the two-wheel bike without training wheels (our earliest to learn)...thanks to the balance bike training (bike with no pedals). Genius invention!

LDS Women's Conference with my girlies! 

Sunday afternoon nap. 

 Watching the Lunar/Blood Moon eclipse.  We could see it just above the tree tops. 

Ivy trying out the mega saucer.  This thing has been used by all 5 kids!

 Addison ran for a spot on the Elementary school student council. She had quite a bit of competition (she lost last year), so we pulled out all the stops. She had props, posters, and even a song/dance to go along with her speech. She sealed the deal by tossing smarties candy to the class because she was the "Smart" choice.  She won! I'm super proud of her for trying again!!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
