First day of school and last days of summer!

Here are our first day of school pictures. I teared up when I took the group shot as I realized they are all still little but they won't all be little for long. Brianna is in 5th grade, Emily is in 3rd, Dallin is in Kindergarten and it is totally killing Savannah that she is not in school yet!

Right before school started we got to go to Montana and spend some time with the Bennions. We had so much fun. We went to a waterpark where Grandma B. took the kids down the slide. Notice my action shot! We also got to celebrate Brynlee's 4th birthday. What a fun hula party!

Kids are amazingly creative. I think all my kids need is paper, scissors, crayons, and tape and they could entertain themselves for hours. This is great for me, but a little frustrating when I need to wrap a present and there is never tape around! Still worth it though! Here is what they came up with one day. It was too funny to not take a picture. If you can't tell they all have on paper mustaches.

The girls got to go to a pioneer activity day at church. They had a great time but before they left of course I heard the dreaded words every mom hates to hear "Well, I'm going to need a costume!" Oh man, let's rummage through the dress up box. It's amazing what you can come up with when you really need something fast!
