The month of August was a busy one for us! We started the month off with the Championship Swim Meet in Hidden Springs. Our kids did AWESOME!!! Sarah swam in four events and the boys each swam in five. It was a long seven and a half hour meet, but they all agree that they will do it again next year! Way to go, swimmers!!
The next weekend, we headed to Salt Lake City for Andrew's first soccer tournament. Andrew's coach prepared us that the boys would be playing the BEST of Utah but we didn't really realize that until they started playing. Andrew did great and we were so proud of his attitude! They lost their first three games and were victorious on their last game!
This is Andrew's coach giving them a pep talk during a half-time.
This was our teams sideline. Out of the 23 boys on the team, all 23 boys and their families came for the tournament.
This was Andrew's cheering section! Jayna, Ryan, Eliza, Norah and Heidi all came too, I just don't have pictures of them. A HUGE thank you to my family for coming to cheer for Andrew!
This is after we won our game! Boy howdy did it feel good to win!!!!
After the last soccer game, we drove into downtown Salt Lake to have lunch and visit the Planetarium with Jon, Palmer and Caleb.
The kiddos got to go to Mars.
They had so much fun they decided to go to the Moon.
Levi LOVED the moon and cried when it was time to leave.
We did a few things before school started. We spent a morning at Bounce.
We had a yummy shave ice with soft serve ice cream!!!
We went to a comic book store so we could see the Archie Van.
We had so much fun putting on the carnival at our family reunion that we thought it would be super fun to host an End of Summer Carnival for our neighborhood friends. We had over 100 people come and it was a BLAST!
And then before we knew it, it was time to go back to school. We did need to do a little shopping before and then we were ready!
The first day of school is just not the first day of school without a picture next to "the Rock"!
The kiddos waiting in line.
I love that Nathan got this picture of Sarah....not really sure that she felt like she looked, but luckily he also got the next one of her looking how she truly felt about going back to school.
Then, after their first day of school we sat down to eat chocolate cookies and visit about their days.
I sure do miss my kiddos, but I'm glad that they are all happy with their teachers and glad to spend their days with friends. Here's to another great year!!
Benj has started soccer and LOVES it!!! Let the soccer games begin!
