Fall Photos!

The kids had their pictures taken by a good work friend. They turned out pretty cute!
I am saving my favorites for our Holiday card.

Jett is getting so big and is crawling everywhere! He can even climb the stairs and loves eating all kinds of food. He also loves his sisters and tries to crawl after them.

First Day of School!

Well the summer quickly came and went. Mack started 6th grade this year! He was excited and anxious to get back to school to be with his friends. 2 weeks before school started he attend daily soccer practices to join the middle school soccer team. We are very proud of him that he wants to be a part of team and that he is a hard worker. His coach seems very nice and stresses the importance of team work.

Laney started kindergarten and Elli is in junior kindergarten. Laney attends school everyday while Elli only goes 3 days a week. This will be a change for us all. This week has been pretty good and Laney seems to be adjusting well.

Laney loves her new teacher and her classroom of girls only! However, she did mention to me that she missed "all the boys".

We are slowly getting into a routine of school, daily practice and games. I know that it will only get worse as the kids get older. I am happy that everyone is healthy and is able to be a part of activities that they enjoy.
I added a clip of Laney practicing her Level 3 floor routine for gymnastics. She started learning the routines and will be competing this winter. She has a great start and I am so excited for her!
Jett is now 6 months old. His favorite trick is to push himself up to sitting up. He also loves to get on his hands and knees and rock back and forth. Any day he will be crawling! He is becoming such a fun little boy. I love making him giggle!

Mackinaw Island

During the first week of August my family traveled to Mackinaw Island for a big family vacation.

Here are my favorite pictures of our trip.

We all had a great time visiting with each other, bike riding and shopping!
The last time we all came to the Island Bill and I were the only ones who had kids. Needless to say this time on the Island was much different since we added 5 kids to the mix! (Baby Hudson was missing in the group shot of the kids)

My Dad, Aunt Mary, Elli, Laney, Tristen and I went on a 2 hour horse and carriage ride. The girls took turns driving. It was something that we had not done on the Island before. The kids loved it!

Each night ended with a group dinner and then drinks and games on the porch after the kids went to bed.

This was Jett's first family vacation and he did a great job! All the kids were behaved and had fun going off with other family members on bike rides and ice cream runs.

Of coarse, my Mom planned the annual Mackinaw Amazing Race. Dixie and Tony won this race.

I love being around my family and hope there are more trips in our future!

Elli"s 4th birthday party!

This weekend we celebrated Elli's 4th birthday by having a small party with her school friends and family at the gym.

Everyone had a great time even Addison got to jump around!

It is hard to believe that Elli is 4 years old. She is such a silly and smart little girl.
