It had been awhile, so we hit the road this weekend to spend some time with family.
|Is this one of those famous mint brownies or a cougar tail?|
|Kaaaate, pick on someone your own size.|
Success in every way-- I got a new outfit and the kids got to see the ins and outs of BYU world.
If our big fat Y logo wall sticker at home isn't enough to point them in the right academic direction, then hopefully the tour will.
We made a few phone calls and had a great turnout of family join us for a Saturday afternoon hike.
And well, we can't end without discussing the elephant in the room: It was the FIRST WEEK BACK TO SCHOOL. Kate the great is a newbie at middle school this year--yay for lockers, lots of classes, and awkward times. Brynn is in 4th and is happy with her teacher despite him seeming tired--well yeah, who wouldn't be tired after teaching for 36 years! Adrie loves loves loves her new school class and like Matilda can't wait to discuss literature over a box of chocolates with her teacher, Miss Honey.
The little guy has one more year at home. He is a little weirded out by his sister friends suddenly leaving him all day. Until he's drafted into the Kindergarten playoffs next year, we'll enjoy many books and play-dough dates.
Phew! It was one happenin' week.
