New schedule for fall

 This was Liam's first day of preschool.He came home so excited to show and tell me all he learned about fishes. And the fishing pole he made. It brings back so many memories of when Collin went to Miss Karen's so I am so happy Liam gets to go there too.

 Liam was also telling Evelyn about school so "she would know when she grows up mom".

 And we have lots of pets recently. Here is pet iguana that has made a resurgence. I think it's funny when old things have a new "resurgence" in play. We have also played TONS in the sand box lately.

 In front of the door of preschool.
 My yummy Brigham City peaches. Serious canning going on the past month. In a couple weeks more serious canning from the apple tree.

 Evelyn loves the library. She loves to pull out books. I can't WAIT to start taking her to storytime. She I think will love it even more then the boys did.
Evelyn wants to ALWAYS have her own book of mormon for family scripture study. It's cute.

Outside and building at Lego store

 This was just a cute picture of Evelyn outside. When she is outside you can see her eyes just POP! Love those blue eyes.
 We recently discovered you can do these free mini lego build creations at the Lego store once a month. The boys have just been into legos the last year or so so it is super fun to go. Liam is too little to officially build, but he watches.

 Evelyn builds with duplos.

 They had these cool new helicopter lego things that both boys loved. They had a display of them to play.

Evelyn turns one

 Evelyn's birthday was kept low key and simple. Kind of like her, for the most part :) Since both boys had school, we didn't do much during the day, but she did get some fun food (for her veggies and fruits are her favorite, like blackberries, zucchini, eggplant, and peaches) for breakfast and lunch.

 I made her a zucchini banana cake since she loves both of those foods.

 She ADORED the pink sparkly wrapping paper Liam picked out for her. She got SO excited every time a present came down. Her brothers helped her open them. Her gifts were simple and designed to help her with her therapy exercises.

 She especially loves this push giraffe that spins balls around.

 She was a dainty cake eater, mostly a few bites of frosting. She's not a huge sugar girl, but she LOVES ice cream and pumpkin pie (which we had for Ryan's birthday the day after her birthday) so maybe next time we will just have ice cream for her birthday :)
 We love you Evelyn!

First day of 1st Grade and Miss Karen's preschool

 Okay, first day picture overload, but here are the pictures from the first day of school, early this year August 19th.
 Collin was SO excited to bring his lunchbox with his cool Star Wars thermos inside.

 Liam's backpack is about as big as he is.

 Then Collin decided he wants to comb his own hair and spiked it. We have never really combed our hair for school before, but hey! Good omen!
 Look at this big kid!
