2017 Fun Run

 Vista does a "fun run" fundraiser the last couple of years. I really support it because not only does it get kids active and outside and running, it also teaches great leadership skills. Collin rocked it, ran the entire time without even stopping for water. Liam also rocked it. Kindergartners stop lots more for water :) It was fun to see everyone having fun!



 Action shot.



 Liam ran the first couple laps like a cheetah. He was going all out sprint. I think if they were runners, Liam would run the 50 yard dash. Collin the mile :)
 Liam's action shot. They both exceeded the goal of 36 laps, so GOOD JOB energetic boys!








Collin wears jeans and Evelyn moves to her big girl room

 Collin actually wanted to start wearing jeans to scout pack meetings. This is historic so I took a picture. Collin since he was a baby has NEVER wanted to wear jeans in his life. Maybe we are turning a corner? He still has the skinniest legs ever.


 Sadee and Ava came down for a gymnastics meet for Ava and one night they helped Evelyn put on a gymnastics show. She was SO excited.


 On a day we worked really hard outside in the yard for chores, everybody got to have their own treat at Arctic Circle. That was a big hit.

 We finally got the boys moved downstairs and Evelyn moved into her big girl room (boys old room) a few weeks ago. She is super excited about having her new room.

 It's still being worked on a little bit but we tried to make it a little more girly.

 We also got the new baby's room organized. Granted this was the easiest ever, because it's the fourth baby. Just switched the furniture around.
Evelyn LOVES her new room. YEAH!

 We finished reading the Harry Potter series to the boys recently. How ironic there was a scar in Collin's crepe this week.
 We had a simple Valentines dinner at home. Heart shaped homemade pizza and fancy drink. The boys decorated the table.
 Went to the zoo on a non-school day. The playgrounds were both open. YEAH!




 Evelyn's evidence of reading love at the library. Pile of books at her feet.
 Zoo time earlier in January in the snow.
 While Liam goes to gymnastics I take Evelyn and Collin for a little bit to the South Jordan library. It has some fun chairs.
 Big news of January, we chopped down two big trees, including our dumb elm tree in the front. It was a big party that day.


 Collin got his Bobcat in January. I got the mom necklace pin thing. That was exciting!
