Well, we've made it through another summer. This one was particularly difficult. We moved. The kids didn't really know anybody, and I didn't sign them up for much to do because I didn't know what was going on in this area. They were all excited for their first day of school. Shay is in 7th, Derek-5th, Kevin and Kinsey are in 2nd. After some initial back to school adjusting I'm sure we'll be in for a great year!

For the past 8 years or so all of my Mom's siblings and their children (and now grandchildren) have had an annual cousin campout. Children 8 years and older are invited to come with their parents to enjoy camping, hiking, campfire testimony meetings, early morning devotionals, etc. We have never been able to attend due to living out of state, or scheduling problems. WELL...this year we did it. Steve took Shay, Derek and our nephew Taylor, while I stayed in St. David with Kevin and Kinsey (they're still 7). Here are some pics showing how much fun they had..what a great tradition. Next year we can ALL go

We found these really cute blogs that teach you how to do cute hair styles...we've been experimenting. Here are some of our outcomes....not too bad for the first time. Shay was taking pictures of her own hair....not a great shot...but you can sort of see.

She Passed Me!!!

I've suspected this for awhile now, but we officially measured today.
My 12 year old has passed me up. My official measurement 55 3/4 inches and hers...57 1/4!!! I don't think she's done yet either. WEIRD
