First Day of School


This August the kids started preschool at a new school.  They are in the fun for fours class at Plum Canyon Elementary.  I was nervous for them to be in a new school with new friends, but the obviously were not.  They went in and made friends like they have been there for years.  It was great to see their comfort level.  It was a great was to start the school year.

Joseph’s Birthday

For Josephs birthday this year we decided to have a family beach day.  I was fun to play and spend time together having fun in the sun!


Dance, Soccer and Swim

This summer the kids started some fun activities. First Bridget started dance.  She is taking a ballet/tap class on Saturday mornings.  I have never seen a more excited little girl.  She loves her class and is full of so much joy when she is there.


Ethan started a soccer class.  He loves all the drills that they have the kids do.  It’s a great time for him.


Together the kids took swim lessons through the city.  Ethan loved it and was progressing everyday.  Bridget had a rough start, but at the end became more confidant in the water in the end.


Blueberry Picking

This summer we went blueberry picking for the first time.  It was a lot of fun and the kids had a great time.  I think that we ate as many as we picked, but we were able to bring home some supper yummy blueberries!  After we ate lunch and played around the farm play area.  We will defiantly be back next year.


Venice and London

Venice was the last port of our cruise.  I was blown away with how amazing it was.  The canals and the way the city was laid out was incredible.  The best part was a few of us took a gondola ride!  Wow, just wow.  It was so surreal.  It felt like I was in a movie.  The cruise was really a once in a lifetime opportunity that I was so grateful to be able to take.


After Venice we met my Dad and Brother in London to spend two days before Kimberly and I headed home.  We did some fast sightseeing, braved some rain, and got to see two incredible plays, Chicago and The Lion King.  It was a great trip!
