October 2012 - Fall fun

Pumpkin patch fun.  The girls both rode the pony and loved it.  I was super impressed as the last time we tried, they frieked out...they were very brave.

 Just across the street from our house is a pond with ducks and some cool trees.  We headed over there one afternoon and spend some time feeding the ducks, climbing the trees, and taking pictures.

 Clearly the pics are out of order...we are back at the pumpkin patch...

 We went to the mountains to cut some wood for fires in the winter.  Couper came with us and had a great time exploring...

Getting excited about winter...

September 2012 - in a nutshell

I stepped up to coach the school's landsharks running club.  I had almost 80 kids and 9 amazing coaches to help me.  The kids had fun, so it was a success.
 My two runners, Halie, Graecon, Thad, and Eden.  The other three red heads in the picture are home schooled kids and are the sweetest kids ever, Caleb and Thad are the same age and get along great!

 A day off of school meant a trip to the zoo.

We had a great day and enjoyed being together.  We rode the ski lift/sky ride to see what was at the top and were pleased that it was mostly play equipment for the kids.  Not worth the extra money to me, but now we know what is up there :)

August 2012 - first day of school

Keira started pre-school this year and had to go a day before the other two...she was super nervous and she cried well, she cried for the first two months....
 Caleb and Chloe were thrilled that they had one more day off school
 Caleb's first day - teacher - Mrs. Call
 Before heading out....Caleb was not excited...he was really bummed that summer break was over.
 Chloe's teacher - Mrs. Boutilier
 Chloe's friend Anathyn is in her class .
