Back to School!

The first day of school picture is such a tradition! It's so nice to have Jarom still in high school so Jaisha can have a ride every morning. I still can't believe she is in high school! When they came home I asked them about their day and Jarom said he was ready for the year to be over...Jaisha said it was ok but wasn't impressed by the language and public display of affection in the halls, but there were some cute guys. Kambren thought the day was soooo long, and all the bad kids are in his class, guess that's what happens when you get the man teacher. Our life style of up all night and sleeping in is pretty tuff on the kids, they were ready for bed much earlier tonight! It seemed to be a pretty good day all around though, and all the anxiety and nervousness is over so the routine of school life has started!

A Perfect Day!

What a special day! Kayla chose the Provo Temple to receive her endowments and the day was just perfect. I have often sat in the temple and thought about how neat it would be to have my children in the celestial room with me, but I never knew just how amazing and emotional it would be until I saw Kayla walk in! Everyone there asked her where she was going on her mission and when they heard Italy, they just sighed and said how wonderful, and she just smiles! Her sacrament talk will be on the 24th of August at 12:30 and a lunch right after that at our house, everyone is invited!!

Our Chicago get-away Weekend!

We're on our way! Jay looked out the window the whole way, just like a kid! Of course our first priority was to eat some Giordano's Pizza!!! There is no pizza in the world like it! So of course we ate it more than once!!

One day we drove down to Nauvoo to do a session in the Temple and it was so worth the drive! Of course it was one of the most humid days of the summer.. Ephra just about died... James and Dayla were with us for the trip so the three missionaries all reminisced about their areas and apartments and all the fun times. Chicago is a beautiful city, and all the old buildings were so fun to take pictures of. I wish I could post them all, but I don't think you would want to look at almost 300 of them!
