First day of Pre-school

Hard to believe that Paul is ready for pre-school! You will notice from the window that this is the same spot Bryan & Morgan stand on the first day of school. I went to Gina's to pick him up and he had fallen asleep. He wasn't all to excited about going to school, he wanted a nap. (which both Gina & I agreed was strange, as it usually takes him a bit to settle down) Once we got to school and he saw some of the kids he seemed to relax. Wow 3 kids in school!

Morgan shows at Ne State Fair

We had another successful year at the Nebraska State Fair! Here is Morgan with her spring ewe lamb. She didn't place as high as I would have liked, belly wool up the side, but she will make a good ewe for our flock. Also the other picture is "sheep Morgan" She was being funny checking out the blocking stand!

Getting ready for the fair

Paul wanted to help get ready for the state fair. Here is a picture of the triplet spring ewe lamb Mike got from SDSU. I see a future sheep shower in the family!

General Mills Picnic

One of the highlights of summer for the kids is the General Mills Family Picnic with Aunt Karalyn. It was postponed one day to to rain but even a day later the kids had a blast...thanks Karalyn!

Pictured is Mike with Paul on his shoulders, Karalyn, Bryan, friend Andrew (not sure where Nick is at) and Morgan. I asked what their favorite part was and was told everything. Paul even talked on and on how Daddy had to walk to get the van because they were "slow pokes" and didn't get on the shuttle in time:)

Paul's tractor

Paul figured out how to use Mike's jack and had to "work" on his tractor. He was pretty excited. Guess it had to have new oil and fix a broken rod...at least that's what he told me:)
He starts school next week...

FINALLY Bryan's picture...he thought he was "TO OLD" to have his picture taken. See this is the window and daycare and every year since he started school his picture gets taken under this window...
Bryan's picture coming soon...it won't let me post other pics at the moment...

Back to school

Its official...we have a 3rd and 1st grader in the house! School started today-they get out at noon and I am thinking of taking them to a special lunch. Morgan looks so small in her desk. Bryan was happy to be back with friends. Morgan has Mrs. Morton (Bryan's 1st grade teacher) and Bryan has Mrs. Chohon (his Pre-K teacher) He was SOOOO excited to find out that she was his teacher.

Bring on the homework and all the fun projects. I am ready!

Have a website I wanted to share http://www.cozi.com/ its a personal planner that will email or text you reminders. I love the site!

Paul's head

Paul is going to be like his Mom...trip over sunlight through an open window. I got a call last Friday that they were at the Dr. getting stiches in Paul's head. He had some how fallen off the bed at Grandma & Grandpa Littlefield's at hit his head.

Last night we took off the bandage to have him beg to put it back on. I asked him why and he said, "Then my fingers don't itch it." So I found him a bandage. This afternoon we go to see Dr. Rosenquist to have him take them out. Bryan told him it only hurts for a moment and then he can have a treat...

Kids are gone...house is WAY TO QUIET

Wanted you to see that even "Darth Vader" was small once:)

Mike & the kids are in Wisconsin till the 13. Man is the house quiet. Plan to tackle their bedrooms this weekend. Go through clothes, look at uniform shirt and rewash them. One of the St. Bon's Mom's gave me a great tip on cleaning them so will give it a try. Have a great weekend!
