Our ward had a little talent show for all of the primary kids. They could get up on stage to do a talent or they could display artwork etc. on tables around the room. Timmy decided he wanted to build a really cool lego airplane. He worked really hard on it for about 2.5 days. It was a hit when we got there. All of the little boys thought it was awesome. I was proud of him.

The first day of school finally came on Sept. 8th! I was so excited for it to start but so were they. Timmy started 2nd grade and Maura started all day Kindergarten. Maura was so excited about riding the bus with Timmy and Jada and about taking her lunch to school to eat in the cafeteria. It was a big day for her. Timmy wasn't quite as excited to started 2nd grade because he thought there wouldn't be anymore fun in school anymore. When he got off the bus though, he said "2nd grade wasn't as bad as he thought it was going to be!" I had to laugh. Maura said her day was "perfect!" Then the next day she said that "it was more perfect than the day before!" Needless to say, she loves it.
Topher was just as excited to get ready for school as they were. Too bad he had to stay home with mom.
T.J. celebrated his 32nd birthday this year. We were able to go out for dinner and a movie and then per T.J.'s request, I tried to make my first three tiered carrot cake. Surprisingly it turned out pretty good. I hope it was a good day for T.J. We love him very much.
I am WAY behind on blogging. I'm blaming it on feeling terrible all summer long. We kept busy though. The kids took tennis (I didn't take a pic) and swimming lessons. They really loved both and were sad when they were over. Timmy was also very proud that he moved up from level 2 to level 3. We also took a few bike rides with the whole crew. I'm sure we got some interesting looks from people passing by, but we had fun.
