We took our kids to see Sorceror's Apprentice at the $ theater
*we loved it!
*we even got popcorn
*as we drove away we realized we were missing 2 kids that happened to be in the bathroom. When we went back to get them they were standing in the parking lot crying. Oops. Bad parent moment! Happy to say I've only done that one other time......I left my sleeping baby on the couch once and drove all the way down the street until I realized she wasn't with us.
-We invited a new family in our ward over for dinner
*Akayla and the oldest daughter have been inseparable since the day they moved in
*ate yummy food
*talked and laughed all night -- they will be great friends
-Akayla clogged at the Blackfoot fair
*luckily we have lots of cowboy stuff for them to all wear
-We had John Hulbert and his wife and kids over for dinner
*John is one of Dave's very first students from our first area
*we had invited them over right before they had their 3rd baby but because our whole family was really sick we called and left a message to cancel -- but they didn't get the message and came over anyway. It was so embarrassing to tell them to go home!!
-We went to a lovely party for the dearest man on earth, Howard Hunt
*Howard serves in the bishopric with Dave
*he is one of the kindest, most considerate people we have ever known
*his wife is amazing also and makes the best food around!!
-We went to a stake harvest activity
-Tanner decided to join the middle school jazz band
-Adri started Tavaci
-I was asked to put together a silly little "Wizard of Was" play for Enrichment
*so far lots of fun
Elli likes to write her name on all of the pictures she colors
-Elli is now home all day with just mom and Lea
-I went with 3 of my favorite people to see Eclipse (again)
*Amy gave us all sand from the beach at Forks - LOVE IT!!
*super fun to giggle and feel young with my friends!
-Dave, Akayla & Tanner participated in a HUGE 9/11 service project including 6 stakes in the Pocatello area
*Corina wasn't able to participate this time
*they worked hard and got doughnuts and pizza as thanks
*they got to do something really great with a lot of their good friends
*Tanner got stung by a bee - he's allergic to bee stings so by the next morning his face was all swollen. He didn't go to church or school the next day!
This is after the swelling went down quite a bit:
-Idaho State Civic Symphony started up again
*I took a year off to have Lea --- it's SOOOO fun to be back at it again
-Dave started his 2nd to last semester for his masters program
*really hoping she'll crawl soon - getting closer
