Natalie got tubes in her ears on Friday - so she can say Buh-Bye ear infections!  Casey & Rob had  enough on their plate - so we invited Keira to sleepover at our house Thursday night and spend Friday with us. When I tucked the girls in, this is how I found sweet.
 Saturday night Grammy & Opa invited the 4 older grandkids for a sleepover at their house.  Holden and Everett didn't make it over night - but my kids didn't miss me and Mike at all.  They welcomed the adventure - and were quite proud of themselves the next morning when I picked them up!

Boys will be Boys

This 1/2 naked little boy spent the afternoon catching bugs and critters in the garden.  It doesn't get much simpler than that.

Weber Race For Education

Jak was so excited about his Race at school today and the weather gods shined down on him.  He raised $100 for his school by asking neighbors and family to "response" him.  He just couldn't get the hang of saying "sponsor".  

 He insisted on having a Nike Swoosh on his shirt, to make him run faster.  I didn't have a Nike shirt that fit him anymore, so he asked me to draw one on.  Daddy wrote him a note that morning, and Joseph insisted on wearing that as well.  This kid cracks me up!  It must have helped, because he ran 28 laps, more than the rest of his class.

Chatfield Corn Maze

Perhaps corn mazes are designed with older kids in mind!  Casey and I thought it would be fun to show the kids something new, 2 minutes into the maze, Lillian asked me which way she should turn.  I had to admit I had no idea.  Which could have been fun if the weather was nice, but unfortunately, it wasn't.  It was threatening to rain/spitting on us the whole time we were there.  And when we had been "comfortably lost" for about 45 minutes, it started to pour.  We scrambled, and found our way out but not before we all got a little soaked and a lot muddy!  We said, very quick goodbyes and giggled as we pulled away.  Only to discover the rain came down harder on our drive home.  It was a white knuckled drive but we both made it home safe and sound with a good story to share!

 Natalie was not about to be left behind!  The corn was at least 8 feet high - I can only imagine what it looked like to her!

1/2 Day Kindergarten Is Pretty Cool

 Weber Elementary made pinwheels and decorated the front lawn today.  What a cheerful and welcoming site it was to pull up to the school and see the happy kids displaying their homemade pinwheels.  We went out to lunch afterwards to celebrate the little things.

Camping Again

Since I'm not working, I love prepping for our camping trip while the kids are at school and Mike is at work. We pull out of the neighborhood minutes after Daddy gets home and we literally feel the stress staying behind in Denver, as we drive up the hill.

Jak has learned how to write "I Love You Too!".  He wrote this message on sticky notes and spread them all over the Standley Lake Library today.  Spreading the love that fills his heart!
