Better late than never!

Here is my handsome kindergartner on his first day of school. He did totally awesome. Why did I fret and worry for the past year about this day? Probably because I hate to see him grow up so fast, and he is gone all day. I like having at home with us, I was worried about Tyson not having his buddy, and I knew life was going to get a bit more busy, oh ya, no more vacations during school months. But it's ok, the boys loves school, he loves his teachers, he loves his friends, he loves all the new things he is learning. He has started to read, which I am so excited about. It will open a whole new world for him. It is so fun to see how far he has come in only a couple of months. I love to see his confidence in himself, and how proud he is of himself when he accomplishes something new. Love it, love it, keep up the good work buddy.And Mister Spicy Tysie. He started preschool with Ms. Julie and with Lacy. He is such a fun kid, he keeps us on our toes. One day we were driving home from church and he asks"Mom what does separate mean?" I probably didn't do a very good job, I told him you take two things away from each other. I asked why. He said, "Sister Elson said she was going to seperate me and Issaac today at church." I laughed, he had no idea what she was talking about. I guess he and Issaac were talking a bit to much during singing time.

He loves everything he is learning, he comes home with great craft projects, he sings new songs to us and is learning so much about the world around him, he even learned how to write his name. Today he told me he wished he could go to school everyday. It is so fun to see how excited he gets as he trys to figure out what he is going to learn about that day. Don't grow up to fast Buddy.
The Saturday after school started I participated in the Climb To Conquer Cancer walk that goes to the top of Snow Bowl. I have wanted to do this every year since we came to Flag and finally my good friend Tera said she was on a team so I joined up. What a great experience. To climb that mountain was a bit hard, but not really hard. we walked with 4200 people alot of whom were cancer survivors, now that's hard work. All ages, all walks of life, Tera's niece Haley who is 9 is a cancer survivor, she is an amazing little girl. I felt very privelleged to get to know her better, see her strength and see her make it to the top.
Tessa at 3months old. we got these cool scarves on he climb.
Dylan turned 6 on the 31st of August. He wanted his usual chocolate cake, but this time with the Green Lantern symbol on it. I love his cheeks all puffed out.

He got to have one of his favorite buddies come and help him celebrate, and he got his favorite things, an angry bird, and Star wars legos. Can't believe he is 6.

Summer 2011

You would think this blogging thing would get easier for me, I just can't keep up with it. I rarely even take pictures anymore. New Goal take more pictures of my kids, they are growing to fast.

Tyson turned 4 at the end of July, I seriously can not believe he is four. He is my jokester, he enjoys life to its fullest, most of the time. He has an incredible imagination, and loves to play with his brother. Sometimes I feel sorta guilty because I don't play with him very often, but he and Dylan they can play and make up stuff all day. It really is so nice that they love each other so much and can keep each other entertained, especially with a new baby. I was really worried how he was going to do when Dylan started school. It has been quite and adjustment for him, but it is also easier for me to play with him when Tessa is sleeping. We play whatever he wants. It has been good for us to bond more.
A couple of pictures of Tessa, this one is around 3 months. This one shows how long she it.

This is at 3 months, she is my little sweet pea.

We had some wonderful rain storms this summer, that left these awesome puddles. The boys play in the same puddles every year, they watch at the windows for the puddles to get bigger and then as soon as the rain stops they b-line it for the water.

I love these of Tyson on his bike, he kinda looks like the wicked witch of the west.

And then of course there are the mud fights, which usually end up with rocks in the eyes and crying.

We also went camping with friends out to JD Dam, it was so much fun, even if I didn't get any sleep. The kids had such a great time, I don't think I have ever seen a cuter dirty group of kids.

This is Tysons new thing, he won't smile for pictures anymore, all he gives is a crazy face.

The proof is on the hands, oh they were so dirty. When we got home around 5, Marty cleaned out the van and I turned on the slip and slide, they washed all the dirt off before they got in the shower. I thought it was a brilliant idea.

Tessa loved being out side, she slept great and was happy. It was so nice, I think she was kinda sad that she didn't come home as dirty as her brothers.
