What’s going on?

I was prepared to post about school starting and such, and realized I didn’t take any pictures of Emma on the first day of school.   This says what the last week has been like.  I’ve been very forgetful and busy.    School started a week earlier this year, and I wasn’t ready for it.

Emma started 2nd Grade!!! For some reason this has

struck me as extremely old.  I say this all the time, but my kids are growing up so fast!!!  Emma’s teacher is two words, 


I asked the  incredible teacher she had last year for a recommendation- something I will continue to do each year.   Who better to recommend a new teacher than someone who knows your child and the other teachers so well.     Emma’s new teacher is Mrs. Heath.  I love her and not just because she has a candy bar name.   She is organized and sweet.  I’ve got a great feeling about her.

Gabriel will start kindergarten

on Wednesday.  Maybe I’ll take pictures that day.  His teacher is incredible too.  I feel so relived and happy knowing they are at school for hours in great hands.   Seriously SO HAPPY!


Last week I picked a broker and have officially started Real Estate!   I joined a fantastic team that has more years of experience than I’ve been alive.   And I get to work with my Dad.

Don’t I look like someone who will do a fantastic job selling your home or finding your perfect new home?  I will.  I promise.  So if you know of anyone looking to buy or sell, a referral is the best compliment I could receive.  ;)


Our last few weeks of summer were mostly fun-filled days of swimming.   In St. George, you don’t have a lot of other options if you want to go outside.  One day, we had a primary activity and we got a mock rain shower from a fire truck.  It was a lot of fun.


Gabe’s favorite thing was driving the fire truck.  He had a happy little smile on his face that makes me laugh. Gabe and emma firetruck 7-29-2010 9-56-09 AM

Abigail just wanted me to push her is the swing the whole time.  She didn’t even want to go see the truck.  Abigail swings


One random picture.  Abigail insisted on brushing my teeth one night, and she loved it.  She brushed them so long I think I can skip my next cleaning appointment.
