week 38

We broke our no-tv-Monday-through-Thursday-when-school-is-in-session rule for the finale of America's Got Talent. As we were watching, the boys got bored with some of the special musical numbers, and started wrestling. I can handle a certain amount of their wrestling, but at some point, when it gets too intense, I call it quits.  I paused the tv and said, "stop the wrestling, you guys are acting like you live in a zoo." Then I looked around.  I was holding one of the kittens. Jessi had the other one. Freddy was hanging out, keeping his distance from the wrestling boys. Tiger was up in her perch, observing the whole fiasco.  I realized that they sort of live in a zoo.

We are reading Wonder as a family.  Christian found an old binki, so he tried it out, while wearing his fedora.  He only likes wearing his "skivvies" to bed.  We passed around the kittens while we read.

Then Jessi read me some more Junie B.

Looking for an after school snack.

Amanda and I, along with our husbands, took these girls to the SL temple to do baptisms.  It was an early, and great morning.

It's that time of year when everyone needs new shoes. Christian is especially hard on his and goes through them quickly.

Jessi running her heart out at the PTA fun run.

We had Brittany and family over for dinner. These girls grew up together. We miss living close by.

The BYU vs. Utah football game brought out the family rivalry.  The boys got out all of their team gear.

Drew had to do a report on a country where Spanish is spoken. He chose Spain and worked on it at Grandma's house after Sunday dinner.

The finished product.
