One more time!

And now it's the first day of school for the big sisters!

Happy 3rd grade to Emily and happy 1st to Molly.

I think Molly made it out the door without eating breakfast and I know I didn't remind them to pack their snacks. Oh well. It's a learning process for the mom too.

Now I'm all alone. I think I'll take a nap.

First day of schoolS

That's right - school plural. Today Heidi went to two different schools!

She started the day at Ms. Cathy's school and was so happy to see her preschool friends again. After we picked her up we took her to Ms. Ronnie's school for some more fun.

I swear, you have never seen a kid more excited for the first day of school. It was like Christmas over here! I hope she's still as excited when she comes home in a few hours.

3 months of fun in 1 week

I had big plans for the summer. Not everything worked out just how I'd hoped so when the whole group got to sneak away for the week we had to jam all the fun in at once. Oh, it was fun, that's for sure!

Heidi has to take her job as the driver more seriously if she wants to medal. I hope Molly has been working on her quad strength.

We found an art festival with face painters. Emily was not in the mood for butterfly eyes so Scott took her place. Oh la la.

The girls' favorite part of the week was the dance camp. My cousin has a dance studio and the girls have participated for the last two years. There wasn't even a thought that we wouldn't go back because - and I am not kidding - the girls asked if it was time to sign up at least two times a week for an entire year.

We went catch-and-release fishing in my aunt and uncle's backyard pond. This was a BIG hit. None of the girls had been fishing before and since the pond was stocked they each caught something within 30 seconds.

Here's Heidi "gently patting" her fish just the way I asked her to.

When it was time to release, Molly wasn't even grossed out! She just scooped up the fish and tossed it back in the pond.

Emily's Mega-Koi was a little trickier to pick up. We hope this one is still alive after the very exciting toss back into its home that Emily gave it.

We also hit the Hogle Zoo. There's a lot of construction going on right now so they brought in dinosaurs to keep the visitors entertained. As you can see, we were completely entertained.

On the last day we took the Snowbird tram to the top of the mountains. The ville is a pretty nice place, but I could handle having this scenery around me every day.
