Summer 2011

Summer started off with a retirement ceremony at the elementary school for Grandma London. She will surely be missed there. She has touched so many students lives over the years. We were blessed that Brinlee was able to be in her class for second grade a few years ago. It was always so nice to know that when our kids were at school they had Grandma nearby.

Our good friends Evelyn Stevens and Claudia Davis also retired after many years of teaching.

The kids got out of school for summer and were so excited. June 10th was declared Brinlee and Brony Day by the girls. They dressed up and did their hair and nails. Made up dances and played all their favorite games.

We had quite a few lemonade stands over the summer. Some even featured cookies and cupcakes for sale.

In June Parker went on Pioneer Trek. He had a great experience and it was a real testimony builder for him to see the hardships they endured. He came home from trek and had to go to scout camp a week after that. He also spent some time camping in the Uintas with his friend Kade's family. Thanks to Reeni and Lance for putting up with him for 5 days! It seems like he was gone for most of the summer.

The fourth of July is always fun here in Morgan. The parade is always a favorite, the kids come away with a TON of candy each year. Parker drove the "train" for all the kids. The kids love going to the park and getting sprayed by the fire engine. Parker and I went to a free Jon Schmidt concert that the community put on at the high school. We Always have a great time hanging out with family and eating to our hearts (and stomach's) content.

We did so many things over the summer. It is so fun to have the kids home. I love spending time with them. I am realizing more and more how quickly time passes. I am so blessed to be able to stay home and care for my family each and every day.
