Back to School

Wow!  Where did summer go?  I cant believe we are at the end of August.   I have been sorely neglecting this blog.   Where have I been? We have been BUSY.  We have been swimming, Growing a garden, Playing outside, went to the Bountiful 24th of July Parade, went down to St George, saw The Little Mermaid at Tuacan, went to Girls Camp and got Miss M. ready for School!   

Today Miss M. started Joy School!  We are lucky that there are lots of kids in our neighborhood that are M's age and a bunch of us decided to do Joy School. (Basically a parent run pre-school)   Pre-school is just so expensive and I wasnt sure how we would afford something like that, plus I wasnt ready to send M to pre-shool yet.  Joy School works out perfectly.  She goes twice a week and once a month we host it at our house.   It works great.   Miss M was so excited and ready to play and learn with her friends.  

 I just cant believe that my baby is big enough to go to school.  We started a family tradition yesterday by having a special dinner and Family Home Evening last night.  After we read scriptures, Scott gave M. a fathers blessing for the school year.   I know lots of families do this and I love the tradition!  I am very excited tostart it in our little family.
Today I took some pics of M. and wanted to document her "favs" right now, so I just listed them on the picture.   The answers are hers.  It was so cute when I asked her questions and she gave me the honest answers.

Lastly I have a confession:  I finally caved and went to the darkside and got on FACEBOOK!  I have been so opposed to facebook for the longest time and it was becoming more and more apparent that a person can't function in society without a facebook page!   It's sad that this is what the world is coming to and now I am a part of it.  (oh, I feel a little sick even typing this)   I did set myself some rules though:  I dont post "fluff" (I hate people that think they need to document every second of every day)  and I wont ask anyone to be my friend.   If you want to be my friend on FaceBook, you have to ask me.  That's it!   Oh and yeah, the main reason for joining FB is because I wanted to get on Pinterest.  I am TOTALLY addicted to Pinterest!  I LOVE it.  If you are not on Pinterest you should be and if you want an invite just ask me and i will send one to you. 

That's all for now :)   Cheers!
