Labor Day Weekend

We celebrated Labor Day today. We headed on down to Modesto and took Mom and Dad's new boat out for a spin.

Alysabeth, Jeremy, Heather and Evan.

Alysa's having a great time hanging over the side :)

Brad and I headin' out with Dawson, Caden and Madison.

So much FUN!!!

A Visit from the Collins Family

Kat, Katilyn and I--so good to see them! Loved spoiling that sweet baby girl!

Alysabeth took this picture--thought it turned out pretty good even though she was at an odd angle. I loved holding that sweet baby!

Wayne, Brad and Evan--playing some Wii

Bowling anyone?

Alysa loved holding that baby girl too!!!!

It was nice to visit with Kat and her family. I miss them a ton and wish they never moved! Hopefully we can take a trip to Oregon one of these days and visit with them! Kat, thanks for letting me spoil that sweet girl!!!!

Space Derby

Here's Evan with his rocket. Instead of the typical car derby, Evan's pack did a Space Derby. He did pretty well considering we had soaked his rubber bands in baby oil which made them deteriorate and he had to use other bands that had not been prestretched. If I remember right, he came in 6th--not bad. He just had another pack meeting and came home with 6 more belt loops. He's doing well and enjoys it!

First Day of School

Ok--I have to apologize because I left my camera at home the first day of school so, I took pictures with my cell phone. It is a new phone and well--when I finally figured out how to get the pictures off my phone, they're tiny and so--I will continue to try and figure out how to download a normal size picture off my phone and if I ever do, I will post them. Just know, the kids were cute and ready and raring' to go. Caden enjoys first grade and has a wonderful teacher, Mrs. Davis. We decided to put the Twins in the same class this year and they seem to be doing really well--their teacher's name is Mr. Hyske--he's very nice! The Twins have a ton of homework this year and we're trying to figure out how to juggle all the extra curricular stuff they do and get all their school work done. We're getting there! Thanks for your patience--Bronwyn

Hey there,

Please forgive me, I am usually so good about keeping up this Blog. But, since the kids started school and I started working and then there are the 3 dance classes Alysa is taking (all on a different night), piano lessons, activity days and Scouts and soon to come--Winter baseball, I have not had much time. I have a couple of first day of school pictures and some others that I will post as soon as I pull them off the camera and my camera phone. If you haven't already heard, I got into a minor fender bender on Saturday--I won't post any of those pictures :) --so things have been a bit challenging with one car but I should be getting my van back tomorrow--I hope! Always remember to DOUBLE check before pulling out of a parking space! Hope this post finds you all well and I promise to get back in the blogging game ASAP!! Take Care!
