Our budding artist

These are some of the drawings Elsa did. She is so talented, funny, and creative.

More news

Dallin, making his boat for the raingutter ragatta for cub scouts. Calvin and Abby wish they could make one too.

Calvin lost another tooth. Yea! Here it is, he's so proud. He got 1 whole quarter. The "toothfairy" almost forgot to come. In the morning, before Calvin woke up, Clint was getting ready for work and remembered to do it. Good thing he goes to work early.

See how fast they grow

Abby is all ready for church.

We had a ward activity at the park in Boulder City, just south of Vegas. The kids had fun. The boys got so wet in the water. Of course, I didn't get any pictures of that. The girls had a blast though. The boys brought their skateboards and bikes, because there was a little skate/bike park nearby. They soon realized when they got there that its not as easy as it looks.

First day of school....Already?!

Elsa is all ready to go to school. Although she needed coaxing to go in the classroom. She did great the second day. She just needed to know that everything was O.K. and her teacher was still nice.
Dallin is very excited for 3rd grade and the G.A.T.E. program. The first day of G.A.T.E. he came home saying that it was so fun and he loved it. Calvin loves his 1st grade class and his teacher. His teacher said that he is so fun to have in class too. He's getting to know lots of kids in his class. (Even the girls)
Now that Abby can count to ten, she can wear her olives on her fingers. I tried to put them on my fingers. They didn't fit like when I was a kid. Abby's lucky.
Abby is all ready to go out and play. she loves being outside. Crazy girl. She doesn't care how hot it is. It is cooling down. Today it only got up to 102*. Still hot, but not like has been.

This is cute Abby counting to ten. One night when I was trying to get Elsa ready for bed, I started to count. "1..." then Abby said,"two...bwee... and so forth" What a smartie! You have to listen really well. She says all of the numbers except one and four.
