1st Day of School

Back To School
Today I hurry off to school,
To work and learn and play.
I'm in a brand new grade this year.
What a happy day!

Abbi 1st Grade Ms. Arthur

The best part of Abbi's Day was seeing her BFF Berkley, Eating in the Lunch Room, and having Ms. Arthur as her teacher AGAIN!

Carson 5th Grade Ms. Davis

The best part of Carson's Day was seeing his friends, and having Ms. Davis as his teacher.

My School Promise
Each day I'll do my best And I won't do any less. My work will always please me, And I won't accept a mess. I'll color very carefully, My writing will be neat. And I will not be happy,Till my papers are complete. I'll always do my homework, And try my best on every test. I won't forget my promise. Unknown

Have a Great School Year!!!
I hope I have taught my kids to Always Stay True to Who They Are, Try Hard and Always Do Their Best!

Family Trip to St. George

A weekend ago we took a short trip down to St. George for Abbi's first Dance Competition and a long overdue mini family vacation. We drove down Thursday night and checked in the hotel about 9:00pm. The kids were so excited to stay in a hotel. First we did was took the kids to the pool to swim.

Friday morning we relaxed and hung out in the hotel room, and then we had to get Abbi ready for her big debut on the Competition Stage.

Abbi got to wear makeup for the first time, She didn't like the eyeliner and mascara but once it was on she loved it.

Abbi's Big Debut at 2010 Dixie Jam Competition

Abbi and her Trophies. She was so happy!!

She danced so good and she had so much fun. We are so proud of her!!

Saturday we got up and went to Breakfest at IHOP and then headed to Zions National Park.
On the way into Springdale the kids saw this shop selling Rocks, and If you know my kids at all you would know they both are completely facinated with Rocks.

They are in complete Rock Heaven!!

We hopped on the Shuttle into Zions and started our Journey. It was Amazing! We all enjoyed our day at Zions.

These are only a few of the pictures but we enjoyed every minute of it!!

Busy Busy Busy

We have been busy with our normal daily routines.

School, Dance, Scouts, Work, Homework, Dinner, Reading, and Bedtime.

Sometimes I think to myself and wonder, is there really more to life then this?

But then I step back and look at the big picture, I wouldn't change it for anything.
