Thursday arrived with excited kids ready for their new adventure. Shuttling kids to school this year will be more complex! Amelia goes to North, Phillip to Central, and Everett to Preschool. All three schools start at 8 am sharp. Makes it interesting! Phillip went to school from 8 until 11 on Thursday. He had some testing and introduction to school rules and such. Friday morning we met his new teacher, Mrs Hubbard, a first year kindergarten teacher! Should be a fun year.
Evelyn decided she no longer wants to wear her diapers. We are slowly working on some potty training with her. She won't keep undies or clothes on very long either! So if you happen to see a stark naked child running around my home, that is why. She recently showed an interest in babies. She carries around a doll, animal, shoe, discarded shirt, whatever wrapped in a towel of blanket, cooing sweet nothings to it. My favorite is when she sings Rock a Bye Baby and drops it. Wish us luck!!
Saturday after yard work was done we drove to Bridgeport Lake for an afternoon in the sun. I think we had out hottest day so far this year with temps hovering over 100 degrees. The lake water was back down to normal levels this time, with nasty flies all over the place. We loved playing with the kids as a family. I had a fun Senior Year session with a boy who restored a car with his dad. We had a fun time figuring out ways to capture him and his car.
Justin spoke in church today as our High Counselor speaker. His talk was pretty amazing! I even remember that he spoke on patience and the Lord's timing. That is amazing since I often miss half of church due to certain squirming children. I am continually amazed at the change that comes over Justin when he acts in behalf of the Stake. I hope you get a chance to hear him speak one day. His sense of humor and tone are just amazing. He even left the last page of his talk at home in a puddle of something sticky on the counter. He recovered quickly with his wit and handy tablet device.
