1st Day of School, Lost tooth, and other exciting events

Katie is in 4th Grade!!

Jack is in 2nd Grade!

Rebekah is in Kindergarten!

Jack lost another tooth, his 3rd, I think

Olivia HAD to have a backpack with a few school supplies in it for the 1st day of school. However, it didn't end there! She is OBSESSED with her backpack. She takes it everywhere with her, and always keeps her favorite things in it. She even takes it to bed with her at night! So, far, it hasn't been bad for her to be the only one at home- she has stayed so busy with her "packpack"!

Last Saturday, while I was talking with someone from church, who had come over, the girls had been painting with watercolors..... it turned into face painting! I wasn't too upset since it was watercolors and it was just about time for Saturday night baths anyway.

The other morning, I went in to wake up the girls, and this is what I found. Both of them awake and sharing Bekah's bed!

Camera Battery!

So, we went camping last weekend. I forgot to change the battery in the camera before we left! Shame on me, I know. We had so much fun, too.
We went with some friends and had good times. We went to the Pocatello KOA- don't laugh. It really was fun. We went to the Pocatello Zoo and Ross Park. We enjoyed dutch oven dinner and homemade root beer. Oh and a wonderful lightening, rain, wind storm. It just stormed enough to scare the kids into the tents and then calmed down for all the adults to enjoy sitting around the campfire talking.
You'll just have to imagine this, of course. Now, I am going to change the battery for the camera- tomorrow is my children's first day of school. I'm going to need to document that.
