MaKayla's first day of school

Well I will make this short today was MaKayla's first day of 4th grade and she loved it. She looks so grown up:-( She is so excited for this year probably because the teacher she has was her 1st grade teacher and she loves her very much. I'm keeping busy with the garden there is really no rest when you have that big of a garden! And yes my lawn is going on 2 weeks of not being mowed again oh well. Hope all is well with everyone.

First day of Kindergarten

Well today was sort of a sad day for me it was the first day of kindergarten for the boys. It's sad to think that our babies have grown up so fast. They had a great time and loved every minute of it. Oh and thank you mom for following the bus home to make sure that they were dropped off at the right location what a great grandma the kids have! Here are a few pictures of the boys.

Sleeping under the stars

Saturday night we had all of Tyson's family over for a backyard sleep out. Everyone had a great time the star filled sky was beautiful. All the kids thought it was pretty neat that we were able to do this. Although as an adult the ground is really hard!!!!! Here are just a few pictures of the event.

Two posts in one day I'm doing pretty good! Just a few random these nothing to important. Today I have had many things going on. I have accomplished everything that has needed to be done. For that I think I need to make note of this day. I never get everything done that is on my to do list but today is different. So here is the stuff that I have completed today.

-Helped dad fillet some perch (which I asked myself where is Brandon he helped catch the fish?)


-Went grocery shopping with 3 wild children


-The house is clean well mostly clean thanks to the help of Miss Makalya great little helper


-Canned some pickles


-Made 16 loafs of zucchini bread my husband better know I truly LOVE him


-Mowed the lawn that has not been mowed in 2 weeks



And may I add it is only 4:30 in the afternoon! I still would like to make some huckleberry/raspberry muffins but if I don't get to them oh well they were not on my to do list! Well sorry to make such a ridiculous post put I had to note this wonderful day that I got my to do list completed.

I need more time!!!!

There needs to be more hours in a day or something. I have been going full speed with the canning between a full day of work then canning all night I have no time left over. My poor lawn has not been mowed for almost 2 weeks the neighbors probably really love us for this one. Speaking of the lawn I should probably be mowing it instead of doing this post. Oh well it can wait a few more days! I have been canning a lot of pickles, pickled beets, and freezing tons of vegetables. We will have lots of good food to eat this winter. Last weekend we went to the Jensen Family Reunion in American Falls we had tons of fun! The kids were able to stay the night there with grandpa and grandma. Between the water balloons, marshmallow guns, and all their cousins to play with they were pooped when they got home on Sunday night. Have a few good pictures to post I will post more when I get the pictures from mom that she took. The boys will be starting Kindergarten in one week they are so excited to go to school. I don't know if they are more excited about school or that they are going to be able to ride the bus everyday. I can't believe their summer is over where did it go? Well off I go to finish dinner and pickle more beets!

Another fun filled weekend

Well I thought I would take this time to get this post done. All the kids are gone the boys are having a sleep over at G.G.'s house good luck there I think she needs to be in our thoughts for that and MaKayla is staying with my mom how could I be so lucky although the house is a little to quiet! Tyson is cutting grain so I'm on my own tonight until at least 10 or so. Last weekend me and the kids went huckleberry picking with my mom and mike which was great fun found some good berries. As I type there are raspberry, huckleberry muffins baking in the oven yummy can't wait to eat one! On Sunday we all went out fishing with my dad. This was the first time out this summer and it was so much fun. We did not catch a lot that we could keep but the kids had a blast catching all the baby blue gill. While we were out in the float tubes Carson decide it would be fun to throw a blue gill at me it hit me right in the face little stink. Needless to say the next fish I caught Carson got hit with it and every fish he caught after that he had to throw at me great fun! Tyson got the award for the smallest fish I think it was about 2" long. Another weekend gone boy has this summer gone by fast. Well I think I'm going to finish up the muffins and enjoy the evening. Hope all is well with everyone.
