Back to School

Here are the back to school pics I took. Nothing amazing or anything just a little reminder for me of what they looked like for the beginning of the school year. Of course Ryan has a face full of scrapes because that kid is always getting hurt so its really not unusual for him to have scabs all over! Natalia started today and she was so excited about it. She tried on several different outfits on last night so that she would be wearing the perfect outfit for the first day of school. Her and her friends would call eachother and say what are you going to wear?? Very crazy! The boys are very excited as well. They can't wait to see their friends again and Seth can't wait to do math! I can't believe it came up so fast. It will be nice to have them all in school again but kind of sad that they are growing up so quickly. Anyway that is the word on back to school for us!

Labor Day Weekend

We went camping for Labor day weekend and had a blast. We left Friday afternoon and came back late Sunday night. Larry's district manager for Mission foods and his family came with us. We went to a campground about 17 miles from us right next to the Grande Ronde River. It was very close to home so we did make a quick trip back to grab some things and to take a shower which made it really nice. We got to fish, take a hike, talk for hours around the campfire, and we also took a drive up to Wallowa Lake which is about an hour and a half away from us. We had never been there yet so it was so nice to go and see it. The deer run around like people up there it is so funny to see. We had a great time and the kids really loved it. They didn't want to come home. Now its time for back to school. Natalia starts tomorrow and goes all week, Seth starts Wednesday and goes the rest of the week, Ryan goes Wednesday but for only half day and does not go back until Monday! How ridiculous is that?? Anyway I took some back to school pics of the kids that I will post tomorrow!
