Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. Life has gotten a little crazy around here. I don’t know if it has slowed down any, but I think I am learning to cope a little better So here is a massive post to get you caught up on some of the things we’ve done lately.
We’ll start with cross country. Emily decided she wanted to try running cross country this year. After her first meet, Cailyn and Sara decided they wanted to join in too. We have always found the way Sara runs to be a little amusing. It looks as though she is running in slow-mo, but I guess it works for long distances. On her first race she had a second place finish, and on her second race she had a first place finish. Her third race was the Championship race. She was so excited about it. The first, second and third place finishers were going to get a medal and their picture in the newspaper. She was sure she was going to take first place. During the race, however, she got knocked down by another runner and was hurt. She ended up hobbling across the finish line, very dissapointed. We were so proud of her for finishing the race. What a trooper!
Next, we have the kindergarten field trip to the pumpkin patch. I was lucky to be able to go with them. We got to ride a train out to the pumpkin patch, pick our pumpkins and then ride a boat back. Of couse, as I went to get on the boat, I realized I had dropped my digital camera somewhere in the pumpkin patch. So I had to go back and look all over for it. I couldn’t find it anywhere, and so I gave up looking as I knew the class was waiting on me to go back to the school. Lucky me, I practically stepped on it as I was walking back to join the class. Close call!
Then we have trunk-or-treat at the church, which was a lot of fun. It was combined between two wards so there were tons of kids. I brought what I thought was enough candy for trunk-or-treat and Halloween night to the church just to be safe, and I ended up handing it all out. A little over a hundred and fifty pieces!
Here we are painting and carving our pumpkins.
Next, we have pictures of the class parties at school. I was able to attend all three of them this year. I feel like I spend a lot of time at school I wonder what it will be like when I have all four of them going to the same school?
And of course, the last one is a picture of trick-or-treating. Lauren was so exicted about trick-or-treating. She didn’t want to stop, and every time we got in the car for the next few days she would ask, “Where are we going, trick-or-treating?”
