Family Pictures

Every year we have Dave's sister Emily take our family pictures. We decided to do something a little different this year so we headed downtown for some city pictures. Brody did great and we only had to deal with a few dorky pictures. Overall, it was pretty quick and easy and I'm so happy with the results!

1st Day of Kindergarten...again

Yes, another first day of school. What?? Brody had been in school for 3 weeks when I got notified that he had been accepted into a charter school. After much deliberation and research, we decided to withdraw him from school #1 and enroll into school #2, his charter school. He has been going for a week and loves it. Well, two things he doesn't like about the new school is that the playground is smaller and he has to wear uniforms. Very important things to a 5 year old. But overall, it's been a great thing for him. So here is the second 1st day of Kindergarten!

I couldn't take the pressure...

Enough said.

Meet Pepper, the newest member of the family.
The boys had been begging me for months.
We sure love this little puppy of ours.

1st Day of Kindergarten

I still remember my first day of Kindergarten. Walking with my mom to Mrs. Gunderson's school with the yellow smiley face in the window. Carrying my purple plastic briefcase. I know, totally awesome. So it's hard for me to believe that now it's Brody's turn--the first day of Kindergarten! We start early here since we are on year round school. We got a new outfit and he picked out his new bug backpack. He was excited but nervous. I was excited and sad. But he was a champ. When the bell rang, he got in line, gave me a thumbs up, and walked into class. I barely made it to the car to start crying. Hard to believe my little baby is in school.

Las Vegas

Last weekend Dave had a business conference in Las Vegas so Brody and I decided to tag along. We spent most of the time at the pool swimming and hanging out. Brody has been taking swimming lessons and has become quite the little fish. We also went out to dinner every night, went shopping at the outlet mall, and took long naps every day. It was nice to get away for a few days and just relax.

mastering 2 wheels

We have been talking for months about taking off Brody's training wheels on his bike. For some reason, he was NOT ready for that. He liked his 4 wheels and had no interest in learning to ride his bike with 2 wheels. We borrowed a smaller bike for Brody to learn on so he could easily touch the ground--he was so embarrassed it was pink! After two days and two bruised and scraped up knees, he finally got the hang of it. Daddy is so proud. I think Dave is dreaming of Moab bike trips already!

Day 1: Practicing in the back yard
Happy with how things are going
Day 2: Success! Riding in the middle of the circle-yes, in pajamas!
