First day of school! Zenock is in 4, Gideon in kindergarten, and Ammon is in 6. This is the first year they are riding the bus to school as well. Ayla wanted to go to school so bad too. We hope to get her in speech therapy preschool again soon. It doesn't start until September 6th. Until then, she and Rydon get to be errand buddies. We are all ready to get a regular schedule back in the family. Yeah for school!

Let's play the parent game. You know you're a parent when you say: "who put a ketchup packet in the vacuum hose?" I asked my kids that tonight and Gideon immediately blamed Ammon!
Kids are hilarious! I'm thankful I found the ketchup before turning the vacuum on. What a clog that would have been!

For those curious to know, this is a before and after of Rydon's cleft palate. He is two weeks post op and doing great. We have one week left of puree food regimen, and he is now back to normal with his bottle. I'm looking forward to teaching him how to suck after next week so he can have regular bottles and sippy cups. Thank you for all your prayers on his behalf these last few weeks.

Rydon is loving having Ayla's noisy toys more accessible all the time. He loves her noisy house. We went to California for a checkup. He rode four planes in one day and did so well!
Gideon is adorable in his hat. He often doesn't want his picture taken so we get it when we can.
Ammon and Zenock are liking Utah. They each have a friend from church already. Our ward is short on boys because there's only one other boy their age in each of their classes.
We are so grateful to be where we are!

When unpacking books and putting them away, it turned into a reading party for everyone. Gideon and Zenock kept looking at the books and saying, "OH! I remember this one!" Such cute kids. They have a bookself in their room, so just about every night Zenock reads several books to Gideon before they go to sleep. It's so adorable! I can't believe Zenock used to hate to read. Now he reads all the time. What a difference a year can make!

We visited our dear friends, who moved away from the ward almost two years ago, in Herriman. We had great food and did our fireworks together. Utah allows the big ones that go in the sky, so this year was extra fun to watch.

All the kids, except Rydon, LOVED riding in the big truck with Brady. Ayla and Gideon had a very hard time taking turns. This surprised me a little because I had the movie watching in my van, but then again, big trucks are pretty fun!
