Just keep swimming!

 Watching the kids swim is such fun!  This summer has been full of sun and swimming!

So grateful to get to keep swimming into the fall!

Little Friends

Working with Lorna is a fun, challenging task during school.  She is smart, yet needs more fun in her life.  I found these little finger puppets and knew they would be a fun thing for school.  We use the shark when we read and the parakeet when we work on grammar.  Sometimes having a friend makes learning just a little easier!  She was funny to watch when she filled every finger with a puppet! 

Silly Bug!

Mom's Night Out!

We try to plan a monthly hang out for the mom's from co-op to get together and hang out.  It's nice to have a little break from teaching the kids and to get to spend time with friends!  We hung out with Torchy's Tacos.  The food was yummy and the conversation fun!  Yay for nights with friends!

Me, Jennifer, Sarah, Tiffany, Crystal, and Brandy!

Mall fun

Lily and Preston Eldredge invited Talmage, Grant, and Ella to meet at the mall to ice skate and walk around... hang out.  I took them and dropped them off.  It was fun to watch them figure out ice skating.  I will say that it was strange to drop off teenagers at the mall, but I guess we have hit that point of life.

First Day!

Another year... another first day of co-op!  The kids were so ready to be back with their friends and start their new classes!  Lorna is in 1st grade this year and so she gets to have more classes, like the big kids!  We sure love co-op!

Clark finally got to go to his first Cub Scout meeting!  He's been waiting all summer for these weekly meetings.  Time to say good-by to Clark.  Mhari is off to Activity Girls and the older kids at mutual.  It is so weird to have 5 kids gone Wednesday nights!  

That leaves me with some one on one time with Lorna!  Since this was the first week, I took her to Braums for some ice cream.  I just hope she doesn't think this will be our new weekly tradition!  It was great to share some time together!

Talmage finished his requirements for his learner's permit.  He put it off a little, but he was so ready  that we got it all done before school started up again.  After we got the permit we went to the church parking lot to get a feel for driving.  We took about an hour learning how to accelerate, brake, turn, signal, and parking.  It was a good firs practice.  
Here comes 40 more hours and 6 months of practice before he's a licenced driver!
