Conner's Sandbox

So, this is Conner's Sandbox. I was so excited when we moved into our house to have a completely finished yard with no dirt for the kids to get messy in. You see, I HATE DIRT! I hate messes of anykind but especially the ones that require washing and hosing of kids.

Conner and his buddies Hailey and Valerie discovered HEAVEN! Behind our church is a volleyball pit filled with sand. For days he would come home from school telling me he was going to the church yard to play. He finally wised up and took his sand bucket one time and brought some sand HOME!

Oh boy, yes he is a total boy and loves his dirt! I really missed the mark with this boy. He loves to color, play playdough, play legos and video games but dirt is his true love!

OOOPS!!!! Watch out for the noggin!

Just a warning, shoes and a trampoline plus two rambuncious boys are not a good combination. I swear Kaden doesn't need to play football to have a constant injury to his head. Somehow it just always gets in the way!

I don't know if you can tell from the picture but he had some pretty bad swelling on one side of his head, I was pretty worried about a concussion but I'll never know if he had one or not......I just kept him awake, gave him some Motrin and kept asking him questions till he totally crashed about 3 hours later. I sure do love this kid....injuries and all!!

What a beautiful Fall!

I just love these 3! They make everyday worth it!

I have to be the luckiest girl in the world to have this amazing man to spend eternity with! Now if we could just relax and enjoy life a little know, let the work slide a little.

I'm Back!!!

I feel like I can never write a post without a picture so I never say anything, well that's gonna change. It's been since JUNE since I last posted and a lot has happened since then. I'm not going to try and catch up but just hit the high points.

Kenzie is a Sophomore at Burley High School, in the marching band and jazz band and she LOVES them both so much!!! She has grown into such an amazing, beautiful young lady! I'm so proud of her. Kaden is in 7th grade at Burley Jr. High. He is doing great in school as usual except one particular class....drama! What? He's very dramatic! :) I think it has a lot to do with the new teacher they had to hire last minute for this school year. He loves to read, read, and read some more! I am running out of books for him to read. I think he's read every fantasy fiction series ever made. He is such a great kid and Loves to hang with his friends every chance he gets. Conner is in the 1st grade this year! He loves recess and school lunch! Who likes school lunch? He starting to read and although he doesn't love it yet.....his big brother is a great example. Wow, all my kids are in school, I never thought I'd see this day. It does get pretty quiet around the house during the day but I am able to get a lot done AND grab a nap almost every day.

Jeff is busy as usual but he did make time for some fun this summer. We got a boat and we took it out every opportunity we got.

Life is good! We are all healthy and looking forward to a Wonderful Holiday Season this year......snow and all!
