So, we sent Seth off to school last week and he absolutely LOVES it! We told Tanner now that Seth is gone he is our #1 worker. He has loved working with his dad and has been soaking in every minute. This is them working last week on building a road with the dump truck. They are having a great time together!

1st Day of School!

Can you believe that I have a kid old enough to go to kindergarten? Whoa does time fly! Seth was so excited for his 1st day of school. He picked out his own clothes while school shopping and wouldn’t you know it, everything had to have skulls on it. Isn’t that odd for a 5 year old? I wasn’t ready to let him go but I knew that it was time. I had a good little cry last night and then a few tears on the way home. His aunt is going to pick him up from school today so I’ll have to wait until later to know how it went. Here are some pics of Tanner and Justin too from this morning. Poor Tanner got all dressed up for school to be told that he wasn’t going!  While changing the laundry before school, I came back to this! STINKER

1 Really Bad Week!

Okay, the last week and a half has really stunk! Here is the run down:

1st - Backed up the horse trailer into a sign and completely took it out. Lots of $ to fix!

2nd - Was helping Jason haul hay and clipped a gate. A very expensive gate is now bent in half!

3th - Helping with hay once again and unhooked me trailer. Went to drive away and put it in reverse and smacked my tailgate on the trailer. Yikes!

4th - Went to an Elder's party and went 4-wheeling, Jason driving and me on the back. Total blast until will rolled the 4-wheeler. Thank goodness is wasn't as bad as it could have been. We thought that my foot was broken but it ended up being a torn tendon and ligament. I also tore a muscle in the inside of my leg.

5th - All 3 boys have had the flu. They all couldn't get it at the same time, they got it in 2 day intervals. Good thing it was a quick bug and they all recovered.

6th - This one just happend today, I was cleaning house today and realized that Justin was still napping when he should have been awake. I went in to his room to see his diaper on the floor. He is obsessed with taking his pants and diaper off. Anyways, he took his diaper off and then decided to poop in his crib! YUCK, GROSS, & DISGUSTING!

Well, on a postive note, we are starting a new week soon!

Okay, so July flew by and now it's August! We were super busy during July but here are some of the highlights from the month:

We got a new kitten and we brought her home in this cage. Next thing I know Justin crawled inside it. He got scrubbed down in the bath after this! I really am not a cat lover but I hate mice even more!

Jason and I celebrated our 7th Anniversary in SLC going to a George Strait concert. We had a total blast! It truly was one of the best nights I have ever had. We stayed the night downtown and did some shopping the next day. This isn't a good pic of us but it was the only one I got due to extremely low camera battery. I can't believe we have been married for 7 years! I have absolutely loved it and can't wait for the many more years to come!

During July we went to the Oakley rodeo. We went on kids night and entered our boys.
Tanner was only entered in one event, the goat ribbon pull. The concept is easy. You stand at the starting line, when they say go you run up to the goat, you find the ribbon on its tail and pull it off, and then you run back to the line. We went over this time and again with Tanner and he wanted Jason to run with him so he did. Well, this clip was the outcome of Tanner's 1st rodeo and probably last one.

Seth is our total Cowboy. He loves everything about it! He wanted to do every event that he could. He did the goat pull and did really well. He did the ribbon calf pull and almost got his ribbon and then he rode a sheep. He didn't last very long but it was his 1st time and I was proud of him. He won't stop talking about it and he now wants to do it again.

This is just a funny clip of Justin with the new cat. Seth was watching this and laughing so hard. He turned to me and said," I peed a little". It was hilarious!

The other things that have occupied our time this month is HAY! Jason is in the middle of hay and we try to help with that. Driving truck and hauling hay is what I have been up to about 4 of the 7 days of the week. This is our busy time for ranching. I guess every time of the year is our busy time but this wins the cake. There are a lot of nights that I go to bed alone while Jason is out bayling hay. He gets NO sleep this time of year!

When I am not helping Jason, I am canning. Those of you who know me know I LOVE canning. It's a ton of work but I enjoy it. I have already canned green beans, made freezer corn, and freezer jam. This next month is my busy month with canning. More corn, spaghetti sauce, salsa, peaches, and then comes the apples. Applesauce, apple pie filling and then pears! LOVE IT!
