MS Walk

Last month we did the MS Walk to support someone in our ward who has MS. It was a three mile walk through woods and open field. It went up hill, down hill and in some places it was really rocky. We took two strollers for the littlest two but, neither of them really sat in the strollers! I held and nursed Bess Bug almost the entire time and Water Bug walked with the big kids. Sometimes he would get distracted by rocks, bugs, leaves, rocks, puddles, grass and rocks. The bigger kids loved the walk. They walked along talking and sometimes would run ahead to see around a corner. June Bug stayed behind with us pushing one of the strollers and listening to his mp3 player. He was such a good sport. It's hard, sometimes, giving up a Saturday morning to go and do something for someone else when you have been doing school all week. We are so proud of June Bug, he is such a good guy!

When we finished the walk there was pizza and water waiting. The kids enjoyed the pizza and then started dancing. We had such a great morning! The weather was great, the kids were in a good mood and we did something that made us feel great!

Earth Day

We celebrated Earth Day by reading a books about our planet, learning about aquifers, watched a short video on ground water, talking about how we can reuse junk and dying shirts. We ended by making edible aquifers!

Jitter Bug Turned 8!

Jitter Bug turned 8! He had eggs for breakfast, tortillas & beans for lunch and spaghetti for supper. This year he requested pumpkin cake for dessert. He had a great day! Since he turned 8 he was able to make the decision to be baptized to become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was baptized, by his dad, in April. June Bug played the guitar, Lady Bug played the piano and Stink, Lightning and Jitter Bug sang "I Am A Child of God." They did such a great job!! There were 50 people at Jitter Bug's baptism! We had lots of treats to eat afterwards. What a special day for Jitter Bug!

We've Moved...Again!

That's right we moved again. Our house has been sold and we are temporally living with my parents. The kids are enjoying being with their grandparents and living closer to friends that we have lived far away from. We have played in the snow, rode a dirt bike, flown kites, made smores over a fire, two have learned how to ride bikes, played games with grandparents, gone to the circus, watched a parade, celebrated a couple of birthdays and so much more. OH YEAH we had a baby too. She was born on Februrary 17th. She was 9lb 2oz and 21 1/4in long. She is such a sweet girl! We are so blessed to have her in our family! Enjoy the pics!

We are back!

It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I'm pregnant with baby number 8 and was so sick up until October. We moved and are finally settled in and getting ready for Christmas. We have been slow with school and haven't really gotten back to our normal schedule yet. Life will get back to normal soon. We took the Sister Missionaries to the aquarium last Wednesday. It was their first time at an aquarium.

Our tree is up, the house is decorated, the cards have been sent, wrapping is almost done & Christmas candy has been delivered! We have been enjoying the Christmas seasons! We hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

Bee Farm

I took the kids to a bee farm. A friend's parents own one and had invited us to come out. We had a cookout, swam in the lake & learned all about bees. When Stink Bug got out of the lake we noticed he had a leech on his arm!! The kids loved that! We had a great time!
