My little grads

We had a couple of fun graduations this past week.  Terek graduated from his first year of preschool.
 They sang a bunch of songs for us and did a program.  I love this song that he sings with the bean bag.
 Terek has loved his teacher, Miss Robyn (Petersen)
 Today Joren graduated from Kindergarten.  Next year he gets to go to school all day!!!  That's going to be a little bit crazy.
 Joren has really loved his teacher, Mrs. Moore!

Thanks to all of the teachers that teach and love my kiddos!

Our Trip to Moab

A couple of weekends ago, we took the kids out of school for a Friday and headed to Moab!!!  Our main purpose was to visit Lucas and Shellie, but it's super awesome that they live in a fun place.
 Their town home complex has a pool, so we got to go swimming a couple of times.  The boys always love swimming.
 Just being outside and enjoying nature is always good.  They have a really awesome playground by a river.
 By the rec center in Moab is a skate park.  The kids loved playing at the skate park.  It wasn't super busy like the one we have in St. George (plus, ours is kind of scary).

 We went to Hold in the Rock.  We didn't go through the house, but the kids picked the petting zoo instead.
 We went on a hike to Bowtie Arch and Corona arch.  It was a great, quick hike.
 Some crazy people were "swinging off of the arch."  Good entertainment.
Hopefully Lucas and Shellie like visitors because we have the perfect place to getaway to.  (Feeling a little guilty about not visiting them in Rock Springs enough).

Oh, and I love my Iphone.  I love the camera on it!  And I love my fun apps... Camera+, Photo Frame and Labelbox!

When did....

....this little boy....
....grow up?
Actually, it seems like he's been a big kid forever!  But 8 is such a BIG deal!  No more booster seat....Scouts... and a Baptism!  I am so excited for my big boy to be baptized.

Brenner is such a joy to our family.  He loves to read.  He loves Legos.  And He loves to play with gadgets (ipod, ipad, computer, DS, etc.)  He's super smart and loves school.  I'm starting to get a little idea of what it's going to be like to have 3 teenage boys in the house... cuz this kid can eat!!!

Happy 8th Birthday Brenner!!!

April just flew by...

Blogging is a little underrated... 

Brenner participated in the Evening of the Arts at his school.  The theme was diversity is... so he submitted his Perler Bead art.  "Perler beads are all different and unique, but if they all work together, they can create a beautiful work of art."  He won 2nd place!
The boys participated in about 4 easter egg hunts.    Unfortunately, I only took pictures of 1.
Joren and his teeth.... he had some new permanent teeth starting to come in.  He was way too scared to have me or Ryan pull them out.  For awhile, he had two rows of teeth like a shark.  Eventually he wiggled one enough to pull it out himself.  It just so happened that he had a dentist appt to get some cavities filled.  Since he has to be sedated for dental work, I had the dentist pull out the 2nd one while he was doing the dental work.

Terek had Pet Day at preschool so he got to take Mia to preschool to show his friends.

We love the Kayenta Chalk art Festival.  This year we have been spending a lot of our weekends trying to fix up Granny's house in Kanarraville.  So, we missed the festival.  We headed over Sunday after church to see all of the finished products:)  These are the kids favorites...

Terek learned how to ride his bike without training wheels!!!  We knew he could because of how awesome he is on his scooter!!!  Now he needs to work on starting and stopping better on his own.
Spring has sprung and our garden is starting to produce.  We have lettuce, radishes and our favorite... PEAS!  My boys love them and will often be found over at the garden munching on peas!
We can hope for better blogging in May, but I doubt it!  For more up to date info and pics, follow me on Facebook or Instagram.

Here is our list of things to look for in May... Moab, Brenner's b-day, father's and sons, working on Granny's house, end of school, family camping trip... busy busy days... bring it on!
