Tracy and Elle came to Visit

Tracy has a friend who wanted to come to Forks and Port Angeles, because she is a twilight fan. She invited my sister Tracy and her daughter Elle to fly with her on buddy passes.(she works for and airline) They could not pass up the deal, to come see me. The only stipulation was For the weekend while her friend was here we had to drive to Forks. So Tracy, Elle, Raydeen, Hannah and me loaded up and went to forks . I would not recommend it. It is a dump! I didn't even take pictured while in Forks. However the beach was awesome and beautiful! It was a beautiful sunny day! The sand is so soft and the beaches in the northwest are gorgeous! We had a lot of fun and laughed non stop at ourselves. Tracy got to stay with me for the rest of the week and visit. I am so glad that they got to come up and see us. Hannah and Elle had a great time together, they are both really funny.


My friend from the ward was doing a triathlon and didn't want to do the run, so she signed up as a relay. Becca swam and biked and I ran. So I really didn't do a triathlon I just went running. It was still a lot of fun though.

Chase Got Braces

On August 16th Chase got braces. He has had a Mara in his mouth for the past year. It is to push his jaw out. His lower jaw was not growing. They kept that in and added braces.


We had to come back from our summer vacation by August 10th so the three oldest boys could start football. They love it. We have practice every day of the week. Each of their practices are at least two hours long. Since the cities aren't that big each city has teams in the different age brackets, sometimes there might be two teams per bracket. Instead of playing each other they play the other cities. They have games every Saturday. Since we play other cities, it makes it difficult because we have to drive all over for the games. All we do lately is football. It has been fun and good for the boys. I don't know what I am going to do when they are all into activities, because I don't have enough time to get all of them every where they need to be now. They play on their high school fields. The fields are artificial turf here because it would be to muddy if they wern't. Chase is #39, Sim is #76, and Sol is #69

First Day of School

We started school the last day of August. Chase is the big man on campus he is and eighth grader at middle school . I can't believe he will be in high school next year. He is a web leader, that is why he is wearing that bright shirt the first day of school. It just means if any of the sixth graders need help they can find a web leader to help them out. Hannah started middle school this year. She is in Sixth grade. She loves it! Sim is in 4th in Mr. Ullom class. Sol is in 2nd in mrs. Burton's class. Ben is a big 1st grader and gets to go to school all day, he is in Mrs. Millers class. I am so glad I don't have a kindergartner this year. With it being only half day it is a pain. I feel like you don't have time before or after they go to school to get things done. It is so nice to have all day and not have to worry about the half day schedule. Next year Gid starts so I will be back on.

Emma's First Birthday

Emma turned one at the end of August. We celebrated her Bday when the grandparents where in town for Sol's Baptism. I can not believe she is one already. I feel like I just had her. I can still vividly remember everything. I remember the second they layed her on me how warm she felt and I instantly was in love. I can still feel that. Emma has been such a joy to our family! Everybody adores her. She started crawling at 11 months while I was out of town, they say it was because I was not there to hold her all day long. Emma now walks along furniture and can stand by her self, but does not walk on her own. I think she is really close though. She squeals when she sees Gid and Ammon. She loves her little piggy and her Binky. Emma is growing up so fast, and we are so blessed that we have her.
