Joshua leading....

Joshua loves to lead the music during Family Home Evening and he is just so cute doing it. I had a video of him doing it but blogger wont upload it so you will just have to imagine it!

Everything is going really good for us. The kids start school in a week. Stephen will be in Kindergarten and then it will be just me and joshua at home. It makes me very sad.... :(

The girls are so excited to be starting. This summer has gone by way too fast. But Im ready for fall to start. Candice and Quinn will be living here in about 2 weeks and I am so dang excited!!!!! I get to be there for the birth and all the fun that comes before and after that!

Trevor is, right now, all decked out in a shotgun bullet pouch, goggles and his shotgun on his arm, practicing for a shoot-out he has tomorrow. It is a competition but he will do just fine and we will be there to watch! He actually looks a little silly right now. He is going to be so mad that I am writing this....

I have been reading some fantastic books thanks to my awesome sis in law, jenee. She recommended a bunch and I have been, slowly, getting through them. Right now,I am reading The Undaunted by Gerald Lund and I love it. If you are a Work and the Glory fan, I would highly suggest this book. It is only one very long book, not a series.

Annas doing great in gymnastics. They will really up their training this fall. Although I am thinking of putting her in a different gym here in town. Right now it takes about 25 minutes to get her there. But this other one is just 2 minutes from our house. The only problem is that she would have to wait until next year to compete. So I am not sure yet what to do. She loves it though, I just wish they would push her to progress a little faster. Oh well. Its all about fun, right?

Emily has a cavity. Poor thing is terrified of going in to get it filled. She has to go in next Thursday and I told her that if she doesn't let them give her a numbing shot in her gum, they would have to put her to sleep. Hopefully that scare tactic helps.

I am in the process of painting the upstairs right now. I have the hallway and the girls room all done but still have to do the bathrooms and the two other bedrooms. Painting is a ton of work... ugh.

That is all that is new with us. I apologize if I have bored you......We miss you all and hope we get to see you really really soon.

Lots and lots of love!

We miss you guys too! The kids are getting too big, I can't believe Stephen is starting school. Tell Emily that Adam is getting 3 cavaties filled on thursday, so she has it way easy!
