Stephen's Baptism!

OK, so I am looking at some of my friends blogs to see what is new in their lives, when much to my chagrin I realize that I have yet to update my own blog, and trust me a LOT has happened in the last six weeks! The first, and most important in my book, is that Stephen turned 8 on October 17th, and was baptized on October 31st! We had a wonderful turn out! Both my parents came along with one of my sisters, my grandparents, my aunt and uncle and their kids, Ryan's parents and several of his siblings and their kids, a couple of his friends from school, several good friends, and quite a few members of our ward! I especially want to thank my Mom for giving the talk on the Holy Ghost! It was a beautiful talk! I also wanted to tell Stephen and his friend Julie (one of the girls from our ward) thank you for singing a duet for us! It was a lovely service and the luncheon afterword was wonderful! Stephen, I am so proud of you for making the decision to be baptized! I love you and your wonderful spirit!

First Day of School

Hi Everyone! Sorry that I haven't been great about updating my blog. This summer has been a fun, but busy one around our house. (Then again when aren't things crazy at our house?) I know that I am going to be p0sting things out of order for a while, but I want to get some of the great pictures that I have taken posted. I am starting with the first day of school for Stephen and Jenny.

Stephen was so excited to be starting 2nd grade! (I know that he doesn't look like it in the picture, but I had called him back from getting into the van to take the picture and he was concerned that he would be late for school!)

Jenny actually started Kindergarten a week later. (The school has placement testing for the Kindergartners the first week of school for all the other grades.) She was so excited to be going to school! She even has the same teacher that Stephen did for Kindergarten.

I just had to include this last photo. They were in such a hurry to go to school that they didn't even give me a chance to take a picture of them walking to the van!

End of the School Year

OK, once again I find that I have not spent the time that I have wanted to updating my blog. There aren't going to be an pictures this blog, but at least I'm posting something! I cannot believe that another school year has come to a close! I seems like just yesterday that Stephen started kindergarten and here he is finishing first grade! What makes it even more unbelievable is to realize that he will be turning 8 in October! I don't feel like I'm old enough to have a son getting ready to be baptized and starting scouts! Someone had better pinch me so that I can be sure that this is real! (I'm not even going to go into the fact that Ryan and I celebrated our 10th anniversary on May 7th!) Well, I guess that this will be all for now. (Hopefully I will get back here soon with more posts and pictures!)
