Another Broken Bird

Sienna found another hurt bird. Last year we rescued a bird and were able to save it, you can see that story here. Now we have another bird, with a possible broken wing. I don't know if we can save it. Do we try? Or do we teach Sienna about "survival of the fittest?" In the mean time, he lives in our next-door neighbor's bike helmet...

Back To School!!

We started off our day with a breakfast for champions.... Sugary muffins, yum! The milk, bacon and oranges made up for it right?? I wish I had taken a picture of the required school supply donations, it was seriously out of hand! I had three giant bags and I swear they each weighed 50 pounds! It was with a little sadness and a great deal of joy that we said our goodbyes today. Sienna didn't seem nervous at all, RJ seemed a little nervous but too cool to admit it and wouldn't let me wait with him at his classroom, Braden also wouldn't admit nervousness, but when I was walking him to class, he told me he didn't think he would make it through the day, he was sure he was going to puke at any moment! But he found two friends from soccer immediately and then his teacher (same one as last year) gave him a hug and his ailing stomach suddenly cured itself.

Skinned Knees and Fat Ankles

Look what happens when you think running is a good form of exercise... This is my ankle. And here's my knee, it looks even better now with scabs. :o) 2nd day, the swelling is traveling... And now it's just huge and fat and ugly. Let this be a lesson for you the next time you think of going for a run. :o) Not to mention, it's VERY embarrassing when you crash on the pavement where people can see you.

Goodbye Utah

We've been home for a couple of days now, but I wanted to post the last random photos from our trip. RJ really liked taking care of Pyper. He's going to be a good babysitter! I only gave Conner one official nap while at Grandma's because I couldn't get him to stay in bed during daylight hours. He sat down for a little too long and his exhaustion got the best of him! Twins! Conner found a bottle of water that was meant to have formula added, but he knew just what to do and hunted down the baby and took action all by himself. My babies would never drink water! Our last night, Braden caught a tiny little snake. We decided it was best to let him go back into the wild, because snakes don't survive well in a car for 12 hours. :o)

I'm Coming Home!!

Conner locked my keys in the car in an incident I'm not in the mood to explain. Robert tried for a VERY long time to break into my car without any luck. He tried hangers (and accidentally hooked it to the steering wheel and couldn't get it unattached), a yardstick, scissors, and my personal favorite, a fishing pole. But nothing worked. Ryan didn't want me to call insurance so he FedExed the spare key. Looks like I get to come home after all. See you tomorrow!
