My brother came home to visit 2 weekends ago. He moved to Magna in July & came home to see his new nephew. My kids LOVE their Uncle Zack & were super excited to have him home for a day or two.
This last weekend we went down to Manti for the Bown family reunion. Caleb is a good little camper & even went on his first 4 wheeler ride. We've taken all our kids on the 4 wheeler since they were just tiny & they all love it (I love it b/c it knocks them out pretty quick!!)
Samantha & Nash caught fish with their dad & were quite proud of themselves.
It wouldn't have been a trip with the Bown's if we hadn't had at least a little bit of rain (downpour on Sat. night). We made flip flop photo albums (I'll take a pic of mine as soon as it's finished & post it). These are way fun & super easy. I think I might do some for Christmas presents.
We got home Sunday night about 9:30 pm (that's way early for us!) & I told Samantha I thought if she wiggled her tooth a little it would just pop right out. Of course she had trauma over this & told me no way. The next night as we were getting ready to leave, she says to me, "Mom! My tooth just fell out!" I knew that sucker was ready to come out! The toothfairy stopped by last night & left her a $1. She was pretty excited this morning & really likes showing off the new hole in her mouth!
I went down to West Haven today to meet with the other 3rd grade teachers. We finally have our occupancy permit so we can finally start putting our rooms together. I have one set of cupboards as you can see from the picture & just one 2 shelf bookshelf. I will need to be recruiting more bookshelves for my classroom b/c my class library is enormous & only getting bigger! We still don't have books in our school library, the part of the student desks that holds all their "stuff", our student textbooks, computers....pretty much a lot! All our work room has in it is a laminator that isn't hooked up & a big paper cutter!! I'm really hoping we have everything in place by the 25th, otherwise it could be an interesting start to the school year!
