Football Parade....

Go Crosby Cougars!!!!
Yesterday the high school football players went and visited the kindergartener's. They read stories with them, ate lunch with them, and played football at recess with them. Mya was so excited about it.
Today we got a call from Kareena telling us that a parade was going to be passing by the entrance of our subdivision and that it was in honor of the football players.We had a "tail gating" party in the Crosby Stake Bank parking lot waiting for the parade to arrive. Keegan's favorite was the police car and the firetruck (such a boy). Mya had to say hi to all the football players and her favorite was the Crosby Cougar mascott. We got a lot of candy because the road had to be cleared before they could let traffic back on to FM 2100. It was a lot of fun.

First Day of School

Today is the first day of Kindergarten for Mya. It was really hard to watch her skip up to the bus without even a glance backward or a "goodbye mom." She is super excited to start school and that summer is finally over. I think she was beginning to wonder if summer was going to last forever.

Here is everyone waiting for the bus to come.

Semenary started bright and early this morning. I had four students this and I am working on getting two more to come. It is a classroom full of all boys. I have two new freshmen, one junior and a senior. I am really excited to be teaching the Book of Mormon this year.

It's Been Awhile

What can I say, this summer has flown by. It has been a very busy summer for us. I haven't been as good at posting what is going on in our family. I looked, and that last post was almost over a month ago. Since Gerald got his Iphone he has been better then me at posting what is going on. If you really want to keep in touch maybe you should befriend Gerald on Facebook. =)
This week we found out that we are expecting baby #3. It was kind of a suprise to both of us, but we are both happy and looking forward to the new addition to our family.

Mya is looking forward to starting school next Monday (the 24th of August). Gerald went and helped her pick out a new backpack and Mya couldn't understand why school wasn't starting because she was ready to go. We will find out who her teacher is on Friday when we go to orientation. I have mixed feelings about her starting school. I think I will mourn for about a day and then enjoy the rest of the school year.

This week has been very interesting. Gerald, Adam, and Jessica have all went back to work. That leaves me with Mya, Keegan, Aiden, Colten and Keegan all day long. I have been trying to think of things that we can do to fill the day so that they aren't getting bored and driving me crazy. Yesterday I pulled out the swimming pool in the backyard. Just when they started getting bored, Aiden found a poor little frog that was unable to get away. It kept everyone entertained for another half an hour, but the poor thing had to prove how long he could hold his breath under water and he had to prove how brave he was to jump off the "high dive" (or Aiden's hand) into the pool of water below. The frog eventually outsmarted Aiden and got away under the fence when Aiden put him in the sandbox to dry off.
