September 2009

I know it's been a REALLY long time since I have done an update. Since I went back to teaching in August it's been really hectic and I haven't had much time to blog. Here is an update up what's been going on...
This was at Timpanogos High School (where my mother in law teaches). There was a fun fair that we were all able to go to. Ella wanted her hair to be sprayed different colors, so she used some of her tickets to make her hair blue, green, and super sparkly. Ella bought 3 goldfish with some of her other tickets. The next 3 day were rough because each day 1 goldfish died! We had to have a little discussion of what happens when something dies. The first day she was really sad, but the next day (when the 2nd one died) she was ok and said the fish was swimming with Jesus! By the death of the 3rd she didn't think much of it. (We aren't getting any pets anytime soon!)
We went to the Utah State Fair on a perfect day. It was overcast and looked like it was going to rain, but it didn't. It wasn't crowed at all and the temperature was just right! They have a cute area that is completely hands on for kids. They get to see what it would be like to be a farmer, from planting seeds to driving a tractor. At the end we let Ella choose 1 toy. She chose a little umbrella. She loved it so much and kept posing for the camera!
We also love playing at the park! We have a fun bouncer that we take to the park and hook it up to a mini zip line thing. The kids LOVE it. They get laughing so hard every time they get a ride. There are a lot of times that John will take the kids to McDonalds for breakfast then to the park while I'm at work. This was one of the times I was lucky enough to join them.
