The Boys Graduated from Preschool!

Wow that is the only word I have for the past few weeks. Sorry it has been almost two weeks from the last post I made. Dang computers anyways! Our computer got a virus and needless to say it was very hard to get rid of I finally just had to dump the hard drive and start over. Then the problems started again with my anti-virus it would not let me into certain website and unfortunately it would let me into the blog but it would not let me update it. With all that aside I think it is fixed!

Well we had a big night Thursday the boy graduated from preschool! The program they put on was so cute they did such a good job. It is hard to believe that they will be in kindergarten this fall. They all grow way to fast I guess time does fly when your having a blast! After the boys graduation the kids and I piled into Tyson truck to go check on some pivots it was nice just to go for a drive with everyone. Plus I took some funny pictures of the kids in the truck and got some good one of the gloomy/rainy sky and mountains. It may have been a bad weather day but the sky was so gorgeous(I love those big dark rain clouds so weird I know oh well). I also got more good pictures while we were out this weekend checking on the pivots with Tyson. Makayla only has 7 more school days left until school is out which can't come soon enough for dad and mom. We are so ready to put 3rd grade behind us and start out with a clean slat and good teacher for 4th grade what a nightmare this year has been. We had a good weekend lots of yard and house work. So many pictures again hope you enjoy the slide show.

Just a little thought.
You go through life running so fast that you don't slow down to take a good look at things. As a child I remember looking up in the sky at the big white fluffy clouds you could look at them all day long and see animals, shapes, letters and so forth. As an adult you don't stop and look at all the simple things. I have learned the past little bit slow down and look at all the beautiful things around everything we have is a miracle. What a beautiful world we live in.

Just a little note

Well I have received a few letters in the mail from family and friends saying they love the blog. I'm so glad everyone is enjoying all the updates and pictures. A few of you have figured out how to leave comments on the blog which is great! I just don't know if everyone knows how to leave comments yet. I was pretty new to the whole blogging thing and did not know how to do this myself for a while either. So if you want to leave a comment all you need to do is under each post it says comment click on it and it will bring up a comment screen. Now there are a few ways you can leave a comment from this screen. I'm not for sure how to use two of the ways OpenID or Name/URL but the other two ways I do. You type you comments in next box below that is a word verification that will need to be done which is a great little box helps with spam problems! After doing both of those things you can either use Google/Blogger if you have an account and it does give you the option to set up an account which is really easy to do. The next way you can do it is Anonymous but please put your name in the comment somewhere so I know who you are (I guess that is if you want me to know who the comment is from). The last step is click publish your comment and your done. I encourage everyone to leave comments I love to hear from you even if it's just to say Hi! Ok so I hope this helps everyone if you did not know how to leave comments. If anyone has any problems please email me @ and I will try to help out. Hope to hear from everyone soon!

Dinosaur Rain Coat & Alligator Boots

Clayton & Carson



Today with the weather being a little gloomy/rainy I have been thinking about my kids and this hilarious thing we have in our household. When MaKayla was little my mother gave her a dinosaur rain coat and her aunt and uncle gave her some alligator boots which she so much loved so keeping this in mind these items are not the newest things around. Well the boys are now big enough to wear these items and they love them if I let them they would probably wear them 24/7. So I decide to get some pictures of them in the dinosaur rain coat and alligator boots. I wish that I had done so with MaKayla if anyone has a picture where she is wearing them I would love to have a copy. I just think it is so funny how kids get so attached to things like this.

Mothers Day Weekend

Wow what a great weekend we had! The weather was nice except for the wind was blowing on Sunday but what do you expect it's Idaho the wind is always blowing. On Saturday the kids and I did some yard work and played around in the yard. Planted yet again some more tomato plants with my dad we only have about 35 or so more to go! Saturday night we had my Mom and Mike over for a Mothers Day dinner. The kids had built a fort that they had to give grandma and grandpa a tour of. The fort consisted of all the junk that had piled up that they moved out into the trees the littlest things keep kids entertained for hours and hours. Sunday morning Tyson and the kids took me out for breakfast. After getting home I worked on my flower bed in the front yard I think it's almost done just a few more things to do when I finally get it done I will post some pictures. Sunday night we went to G.G.'s house for dinner with the family. We celebrated Mothers Day/ Brandons birthday. The kids had a lot of fun playing with their cousin Jake. They got some bubbles to play with and had a ton of fun with them. Like last week there are so many pictures to share that I put together another slide show hope everyone enjoys. More post to come soon.

Visit with family

This last weekend was nice we were able to visit with Tyson's grandma and family from the Coeur d' Alene area. It was great to be able to see everyone it has been so long since visiting with them last. The kids had fun with Anya and Riley all three of them did not want them to leave. They were also able to play with their cousin Jake which they always enjoy. The weather was beautiful we spend most of our time outdoors which was very nice. My dad and I got more of the garden planted we now have about half of it done. It seems like the garden keeps getting bigger and bigger every year. Tyson was teasing me the other day saying that before long I will have the whole acre planted into garden! I have to have enough vegetables to can and freeze to last through the entire winter so it takes a large garden to do that. The gardening part is easy it is the canning season that takes a lot of time and work. We are all looking forward to this coming weekend we will be spending a lot of time with the family to celebrate Mothers Day and hopefully have a little down time to rest and relax. There were so many pictures that I liked from this weekend that I created a slide show.
