In the middle of the summer some friends in the ward moved back East.  They couldn't take their hamster with them so we bought him.  When we brought him home we were feeding him some snacks and Evan exclaimed "Crackers!" so that's what we decided to name him. :) He looks cute and all but he's still a rodent to me.  The kids are all enthralled though.

School starts!

The first day of school is always excting.  The freshly sharpened pencils, new hairdos, crisp new lunchboxes.  I just lvoe how much my kids love school.  I hope they will always love to learn and develop their skills and talents.

The end of summer was more swimming, playing, Pioneer Day, reading, ice cream and chores!

 How could you NOT swim with this stud?

Life as we know it is full of laughter, fun, stress, love, faith and surprises. What more could we ask for?
